That title got two exclamation points because I think it’s extra !. Carrie Underwood came out in favor of gay marriage despite poo-pooing on humping/living together before marriage.
Carrie kinda gives me the MEHS because country music makes me reach for Zoloft and Irish Mist. (To be fair, an episode of ‘Golden Girls,’ funny shaped clouds or a breeze from the East has the same effect.) But I gotta give the girl a slow clap for this…
“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,” she 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. Our church is gay friendly,” said Underwood, 29, who was raised as Baptist, a denomination that tends to condemn homosexual behavior, but who now worships in a non-denominational congregation with hockey-player 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 on with each other. It’s not up to me to judge anybody.”
While I typically roll my eyes at people who treat religion like a pick-n-chose combo meals before trying to shove their beliefs down my throat, I have to hand it to her for having the lady version of testicular fortitude to stand up for her liberal view.
