Carrie Underwood Supports Gay Marriage
Carrie Underwood is the latest celebrity to come out in support of gay marriage, but she might be one of the first country superstars to come out and support it. Usually talking about “gay people” in the country music industry is a death sentence, but Carrie has fans in just about every genre.
Underwood told Britain’s The Independent newspaper that her support of gay marriage is because of her strong faith,
“As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love, who you want to marry forever. 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.” Underwood told the newspaper.
Carrie was raised in a Baptist church, but has recently switched to a non-denominational Christian church with her husband, Mike Fisher;
“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 along with each other. It’s not up to me to judge anybody.” She said.
Good for her! We just hope they let her in the building at the next CMT Award Show.
