Country Music Superstar Carrie Underwood Supports LGBT Equality, Slams Hateful “Christians”
“As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love, and want to marry. I can’t imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love. Our church is gay friendly. Above all, God wanted us to love others. It’s not about setting rules, or [saying] ‘everyone has to be like me’. No. We’re all different. That’s what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other. It’s not up to me to judge anybody.” – From an interview with the Independent when talking about Carrie’s first UK tour.
Also in the interview, Carrie condemned “people who use the Bible for hate”, adding: “That’s not how I would want myself as a Christian to be represented.”
