Christian Conservatives Slam Carrie Underwood’s Pro Gay Marriage Stance

Conservative Christians are criticizing country music icon Carrie Underwood after she announced her support for marriage equality this week.

Underwood, who is a strongly believing Christian herself, spoke to the British newspaper the Independent about why she endorses marriage equality.

"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," Underwood said. "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."

The 29-year-old "American Idol" winner also told the publication that she was brought up as a Baptist but now goes to a non-denominational church with her husband, Mike Fisher, a hockey player.

"Our church is gay friendly," the "Jesus, Take the Wheel" singer said. "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."

Many fans that don’t share the same views as Underwood have turned their backs on the country star, however. Some have taken to social media to attack the star, Gay Star News notes.

"I warned @carrieunderwood fans that their idol was going to get backlash for her support of marriage perversion and I was right! #asusual," one person tweeted.

"@carrieunderwood Is a disgrace. Being vegan and supporting gay marriage doesn’t seem very country at all," another said.

"Another day, and a another ’gospel’ artist signed to ’EMI’ comes out supporting gay marriage.@carrieunderwood Unequally signed to the devil," someone wrote.

GLAAD also launched a Twitter campaign in order to support Underwood. The organization wants supporters to tweet words of encouragement to the singer with the hash tag #supportcarrie.

Not only did fans slam the country singer for her pro-gay stance but also a pastor from Franklin, Tenn. did, as Crushable.com points out. Scotty Smith, the pastor of Franklin’s Christ Community Church, talked about Underwood’s statements on the Christian Broadcasting Network.

"What she said in that interview, unfortunately, has increasingly become a pretty broken understanding of what the Bible is saying. You want to listen to the Scripture in terms of what it says about everything, including marriage, including sexuality."

When the ultra conservative websites Life Site News and Free Republic reported the story swarms of readers voiced their disapproval of Underwood’s support for same-sex marriage.

"Using Christianity to defend and promote homosexuality is insulting. Ugh," someone said. "Being Saved doesn’t stop you from being dumb," another wrote. "Jesus just let go of the wheel," a commenter said.

The LA Times reports, however, that the singer is getting praise from one conservative group - GOProud, an organization for gay Republicans.

"Good for her," said Jimmy LaSalvia, co-founder and executive director of GOProud. "You know, Carrie Underwood isn’t any different from anyone else in America," LaSalvia said in an email to the Times. "The more Americans think about how issues affect their gay friends and family the more they come to realize that supporting same-sex civil marriage is the right thing to do. More and more people are coming to that conclusion - and that includes conservative Christians."

Going against the down-home grain usually doesn’t play well with country music fans. In 2003, the Dixie Chicks faced boycotts after a member criticized President George W. Bush and the invasion of Iraq in a concert.

Popular country star Chely Wright made headlines as well as some enemies when she came out as a lesbian in 2010. Wright is the first major country singer to publically come out as gay, which many conservative fans of the genre saw as an issue. Last year a documentary called "Wish Me Away" chronicled Wright’s coming out story and her role as a gay rights activist.

    Love Carrie and her music. I find it interesting how the haters love to babble but dare anyone else to have a different opinion. Guess you’ll be the ones in hell. Hate is hate! Choose to love!

    I hate how when somebody says they are against gay marriage everybody call it hate, and that is what Carrie Underwood has implied. Hate the sin love the sinner, that is the way it for me and many other people who are against gay marriage.

    "Being vegan ... doesn’t seem very country at all," This quote just shows how moronic these people are. You can be country and eat anything you want! In the same vein, you can be country and love anyone. Unless, of course, country to these people means being a member of the Christian Brotherhood of the Ku Klux Klan.

    Good for Carrie! She knew many would criticize her, but she spoke out anyways. And, to one of the previous commentators...why would anyone think it hate when people are trying to take away the rights of others. they tell people their families are not " real" (how do you think the kids of these unreal families feel being described like that), some say they should be killed and they get a standing ovation from their parishioners, you don’t want these folks to have the same benefits you do...but oh, no, it’s all love, right?

    Jesus set our one and only perfect example of love and forgiveness. When a woman was to be stoned to death, He said cast the first stone if you are without sin BUT he also told her to go and sin no more. Take the Bible as a whole and rightly divided. Sin will not enter heaven, be it homosexuality or any other sin. Remember, God did destroy 2 cities for such as this and other sexual perversion. Pray for each other. Sinners have souls. That’s what we are here for. To win one another to Christ and see him face to face one day. Don’t be fooled in these last days. He is coming back.

    Again good for carrie. All we need to know outside of the bullcrap etc is that conservative xtianity justified slavery as per the bible They justified not allowing blacks and inter-racial couples to marry "to protect the sanctity of the white race They created the hatred of Jews which over a millenia morphed into the holocaust and the election of a madman named hitler to office I could go on, but here are the photos from Germany during the nazi era - re the church. Bottom line - just connect the dots between these absolutists, their absolutist beliefs and the fact that virtually every tyrant is a absolutist my way or the highway type of "person" saddam, hitler, Stalin (learned his hatreds in Russian orthodox Seminary in his youth http://nobeliefs.com/nazis.htm The conservatives complain about being haters. They dont even realize what they are........... Just as the 9-11 Islamics thought they were doing Gods work. And all these people take pride in what they do. It even showed in the face of Eichmann - smilling as they led him to the gallows In Israel in about 1966

    HEY EVERYONE! I KNOW THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF YOU WHO DON’T AGREE WITH CARRIE. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHETHER OR NOT WE DO OR DON’T. INSTEAD OF BASHING HER AND BELITTLING HER, WHY DON’T WE LIFT HER UP IN PRAYER? SHE IS OUR SISTER IN CHRIST AND I KNOW THAT THIS HAS TO BE VERY DIFFICULT FOR HER. WE ARE ALL HUMAN AND WE HAVE OUR OWN BELIEFS. IT’S EASY TO POINT THE FINGER AND JUDGE WITH ANOTHER. LET’S ALL DO WHAT JESUS COMMANDS US TO DO EVEN IF WE DON’T AGREE. WE AS THE BODY OF CHRIST CAN STILL COME TOGETHER AS ONE DESPITE OUR DIFFERENCES. LET’S DO WHAT JESUS WOULD DO. CARRIE, I LOVE YOU AS ONE OF YOUR FANS AND ALWAYS WILL. YOU’RE A LOVELY WOMAN AND A TALENTED SINGER. I WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR FAN AND THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE.

    Good for Carrie! It is always a joy to hear from a Christian who believes in and practices Christian love. To those on both sides of the question who believe supporting LGBT folk or being LGBT is incompatible with being Christian, the fact is there are many Christian organizations that welcome and affirm LGBT people, but they rarely get the news coverage that is given to those who use religion as an excuse to justify homophobia.

    Stop calling us "haters" and open your bible. Being gay is a sin just like the manyyyyy other sins. I am not perfect and I have sinned, we all have. I don’t care that Carrie has these opinions but she shouldn’t say it is because of her Christianity that she believes this. We, Christians, love gays just as Jesus does but we hate the sin they practice just as Jesus does. I just wish she wouldn’t associate her personal beliefs with Christianity. I still like her music and stuff but I see her in a very different way now..

    For the person talking about satan being the author of confusion....I hope you can get some clarity but i doubt if your heart is even open. Interesting isn’t it, that Jesus never spoke a word about homosexuals, not one. Wonder why it was not important to Him? He spoke about divorce...are you against that, something He actually is against? There is only 1 place in the New Testament where it speaks of homosexuality and the wording is interesting. " They exchanged their NATURAL desires for UNNATURAL." what if your natural desires are for the same sex. Gay people don’t wake up one day and say i think i will try homosexuality. their attraction for the same sex is every bit natural as yours may be for the opposite sex..you don’t have to mull it over..it is innate. Many Christians will pray that you have your heart opened to Who Jesus really is, and I guarantee you, there are gonna be gay folks in Heaven. You might as well deal with it now.

    Ephesians 5:25-33 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. "Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

    By the way, in timothy and corinthians, those were not the words of Jesus Christ. He did not speak of this issue, but he did talk about taking care of the poor, about not judging..many many many things, but not anything associated with homosexuality..like for example, divorce was on His mind. It is easy to see why carrie thinks the Jesus of the bible would not be against loving people wanting to get married. Kind of hard to see the jesus of the bible thinking this was such a big deal..did He forget to mention it?


  • Anonymous, 2012-06-27 16:26:38

    My translation of the bible in I corinthians 6 does not say " homosexuals", says " homosexual offenders". Yes, i know, many of you will say it is the same thing, but many will say the opposite. Those of you quoting that homosexuals shall be put to death, of course if the Leviticus version, only 4 verses earlier than the one you quote, it says that children shall be put to death if they curse their parents. Lev 20 verse 9. Deut. 20 verses 18 thru 21 talk about the " rebellious" child who shall be stoned to death. Would any of our kids survive the teenage yrs. Of course we do not follow the Old Testament teachings about many many things. The few Scriptures in the New testament do not refer to same sex committed relationships, if you go back to the old Hebrew translations they are referring to married men who are having affairs. In Romans, it was an orgy. I am persuaded that Jesus Himself did not speak out on this issue and that tells me more than the Old Testament teachings. There will always be debates on this but i do wonder why the conservatives are sooooo focused on this issue. it appears more important than Jesus’s teachings that we KNOW He wants us to understand, not ones that are simply our own opinions. We know this , how? Because He talked about it. You can do whatever you want, judge Carrie, judge gays, judge those who support gays. You just won’t find any Scriptural basis for that judgement.

    To A. Nony Mous: The fact that you quote Biblical passages out of scientific, social and historical context does not validate the point you are trying to make. You may be wise to consider the latest scientific and psychological information on human sexuality and consider the words of Augustine of Hippo who stated if the facts do not validate our explanations for Scripture, then we need to look for new explanations. Carrie Underwood is a far better representative of Christianity than you are since she understands the meaning of love and compassion as Jesus taught it. As for you, you are one good reason that so many people have turned their backs on God and Christ Jesus.

    Appreciate you saying the above with a kind spirit...not always true here. Sodom and Gomorroh were destroyed before Jesus was even born. Ezekial 16: 49 says " Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister, Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and her daughters, neither did she strenthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore i took them away as I saw good." there was much more than simply homosexuality. I repeat, Jesus Himself did not speak of homosexuality. he did speak of divorce. Which does the Christian church focus more on today?

    you see, the person saying nothing in the bible about being put to death for cursing your parents...don’t know if you are just being cute when you specify the kings james version and i dont have one of those. but i do have the New International version, a perfectly acceptable. 4 verses before it talks about gays being put to death it says in Lev 20 vs 9..." if anyone curses his father or mother, he must be put to death . He has cursed his father or his mother, and his blood will be on his own head." then again in Deut 21 vs 18 to 20 " if a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. They sahall say to the elders. " this son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a profligate and a drunkard. Then all the men of his town shall stone him to death. you must purge the evil from you. why do you folks pick and choose certain verses that denounce gays while flat out ignoring or even lying about the other verses which impose death on other offenses? There can not ever be an honest debate with folks like you because you choose what you want and ignore what you want...as if ignoring it proves your point.

Christians on here and everywhere know that sin is sin...lesbians and homosexuals are not the only ones we speak to regarding sin and its reprecussions...so far there has not been any christians on here have deliberatly came on here to hurt another person...only to help and to speak the truth..but those on here that abusive to us as christians with your filth and need to pick the small things out regarding mis spelled words and mistakes about the truth that we make, you HATE US as CHRISTIANS...you are full of HATE and CONTEMPT FOR US...I choose not to Argue and that is what you all are turning this into...you have left the discussion area, you do not want to know that we care about all of you...You are to Bzy defending your SIN...

    My point in asking about how many times the bible speaks of putting kids to death for cursing their parents simply was to put another look on this.. as many here were quick to condemn gays to death.... I personally do not hate Christians...I met the Lord when I was 17. I think there are areas that are grey, and personally think Christians do themselves a big disservice by coming across as hateful and judgemental. There has been plenty of hate and judgement here..people trashing Carrie, trashing gays, and yes, trashing Christians. Christians, some of them, and some here, have not been kind in their words..read again some of the comments and tell me that some here are just trying to show they care. Wow, with caring like that.... I also wonder why people get so hung up on someone else’s supposed sin. I think the New Testament has some areas that are debatable on the issue of homosexuality and more and more ministers are agreeing with that. No, not most. But some. The Scriptures in romans talk about exchanging unnatural desires for natural ones...not discussing what are someone’s natural desires? For many who are gay, that is their natural desire.they don’t wake up and think..Hmmm wonder which I will prefer today? As natural as heterosexuality is for most, homosexuality is what is natural for some. Scientific studies show that, and it doesn’t particularly matter if Christians get that or not...doesn’t change the facts. Why Christians would focus so much on something that Jesus Himself never mentioned while He actually did talk about divorce. the Christian community has pretty much the same divorce rate as the non christian one..about 50 percent, and homosexuality is less than 10 percent. Yet some Christian leaders make a ton of money running around the country screaming about the evils of homosexuality. Why the focus on this, why the hatred ( sorry look at the comments again..if you can’t see hate, you are not paying attention). Law after law are offered up to keep gays from having the same rights as others...why not talk about divorce..something the Bible is clear about and is a huge problem? Just some thoughts. Not hate. I could care less how anyone spells...but i care that people think it perfectly fine to hate in the name of god.Don’t kid yourself...some may be sincere, some are so full of hate it is bringing them down.

    ...do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice HOMOSEXUALITY (1 Corinthians 6:9 ESV). Homosexuality is a sin just like divorce or disobeying your parents, that’s not the discussion here. The difference between them is that the bible says, as stated in the above bible verse, that as a homosexual you will not inherit the kingdom of God, which means they won’t be going to heaven. You cant be a homosexual and be a Christian at the same time. And thats the problem. Not that the other ones arent sins but America has seemed to decide that homosexuality is no longer a sin. You can’t be totally 100% addicted to any sin and be a Christian. It doesn’t matter if it’s sex, porn, lying, drunkenness, stealing, murdering, disobeying parents, cheating, or homosexuality. If your life is consumed by any sin than you should take a second and examin your salvation. A man that gives in to his homosexual desires day in and day out is consumed with that sin. A Christian will not be consumed with any sin cause they have the power of the holy spirit to overcome it. That doesn’t mean that a man who was saved out of drunkenness won’t struggle with drinking, or the prostitute won’t struggle with not having sex, or the cheater won’t struggle not to cheat , or the liar to not lie, or the homosexual to not lie with they’re own gender. It means that they’ve recognized their sin and have repented of it and they can now have victory over it with the power of Jesus Christ. Where as before they were a slave to that sin and couldnt be victorious over it. When a christian does give into that sin he should be torn apart inside cause he knows he just sinned against the Lord Jesus Christ who suffered his own body on the cross so we as Christians can be free from these sins. For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again...(Proverbs 24:16 NIV)

    Thanks for the info. I guess we’re just not as concerned about a supposed judgement day as you are. The good news IS that leaves more kingdom for YOU to inherit. I wond er if its like a Hearst Castle or a Xanadu type spread. How fun would that be? I suppose you’ll actually get to have milk with your chocolate cake too. Have a blessed day and thanks again for setting us ...er...straight.

    Well then guess there are gonna be lots of people not going to heaven then..divorced people, kids who don’t obey their parents, adulterers...maybe even all of you who judge won’t be there either. You can have so much fun with perfect people everywhere. Or...just maybe you are wrong. Won’t be able to know for sure til judgement day, so the arguments will continue.

    I have a question... How many of you have "sinned" by the standards of the bible? If you have sinned, you’re a hypocrite. Quit looking at others, and fix yourself. Get off your high horse, and realize GAY’S ARE PEOPLE, TOO AND HAVE FUCKING FEELINGS. You shouldn’t JUDGE anyone. "Do on to others, as you would like to be done on to you", would YOU like someone criticizing you for your beliefs? No, you wouldn’t and you would lash out, just as you have through out this post.. This is ridiculous, and you all sicken me. The bible ALSO says "love thy neighbor". You’re not being too loving in my opinion, but instead judgmental, and hurtful.

    Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that u are god god have mercy on us all

    Christians are not on here to judge, thats gods day..Jesus wants his desciples and apostles (Christians) to preach his gospels, it is biblical, he wants all of his children to make it home, so when you argue with someone for saying the truth rather it be Murder, Gay, Hating others or lying, and ect.. God wants us to know about it, he wants it all stopped, and yes there will be a Day when it happens,.. I have had an unusual expierience with Jesus, HE IS ALIVE REAL AND POWERFUL...

    Give it a fuckin’ rest you pathetic sheep. This article was written back in June. It’s time to find something else to get your twat lips quivering over.

    Look carrie and all others who commented. Homosexuality is a sin punishable by destruction. It is even a punishment from God he said in the bible, " I will take away their passion for women and make them lust for men". So by no means possible is homosexuality acceptable by God

    to the 2/10/13 commenter. You are aware the same punishment for homosexuality is also the same for children who are disrespectful to their parents...death. You can find them a mere 4 verses apart in Lev 20 vs 9 and 13. Or in Duet 21 vs 18 thru 21 where the stubborn and rebellious son is stoned to death. And are you aware that Jesus never mentioned homosexuality one single time, but you not what He did mention and is against...divorce? When you start advocating the death of smart mouthed teens, then you can yap about killing gays.
