Some of you may remember embattled singer and American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino and her numerous problems but now comes news of an anti-gay rant using her instagram account. During this so called sermon, Barrino felt for some reason that condemning other people because others have condemned her would have been something Christ-like? I have no clue so here it is for yourself:

I Rise ABOVE IT ALL!!! THE WORLD IS GONE MAD. KIDS, THE GOVERNMENT THE church House… Everybody Trying!!!!!!! Its a lot that going on that the Bible speaks about we should Not be doing. Weed legal in some places, Gay Marriage Legal BUT YET IM JUDGED!!! I’m not doing Nothing for you… My Life!!!!

Now a spokesman has come out in response to this damning statement with this to say:

Comments made by Ms. Barrino through her Intragram account were recently taken far out of context, and the purpose of this release is to set the record straight. Ms. Barrino is not now, nor has she ever been an opponent of the LGBT community. She has supported and performed at numerous events that are sponsored by the LGBT community. Whether it’s through a live performance or placement on social media, Ms. Barrino uses every opportunity to reach out and connect with her fans, all of her fans.

Barrino recently posted her own apology on instagram saying she has always loved the gay community:

Okay, so they claim that the entire incident was out of context and a heat of the moment situation (which doesn’t excuse it) but can they really use this excuse since this sin’t the first time this has happened?

So can Barrino explain this tweet that was later removed? You can’t say that this rant was out of context when there are tweets that exist calling us sinners. Even more problematic that Barrino is condemning us when she had a child of wedlock with a married man so the next time she claims to be a child of God then she should remember her own past isn’t very Christian.
