Carrie Underwood Speaks Out for Gay Marriage
“I . . . think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people we want to love.”
Carrie Underwood is in favor of gay marriage, she said during a recent interview. "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," Carrie tells UK news site The Independent.
"Our church is gay-friendly," Carrie says of the inter-denominational church she and husband Mike Fisher attend in Nashville. "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." She also spoke of how important her faith is in her daily life, mentioning that she and husband Mike pray together each morning and that she often prays with her band members before concerts.
During the interview, Carrie told reporter Guy Adams that she did not approve of "people who use the Bible for hate," adding, "That's not how I would want myself as a Christian to be represented."
