Carrie Underwood Supports Gay Marriage

Carrie Underwood Supports Gay Marriage

Carrie Underwood is voicing her support for 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,” the 29-year-old country star, whose husband is hockey player Mike Fisher, tells The Independent.

“I can’t imagine how that must feel,” she added. “I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love.”

Carrie, who’s vocal about her Christian faith, says the church she and Mike attend is “gay-friendly.”

“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,” she shared. “That’s what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other.”

    Kerry is a good example of a very cute woman with zero sex appeal. No matter what she does, she never looks beautiful, just cute.

  • Cody

    She’s a TRUE CHRISTIAN, not a hypocrite like so many.

  • Douglas

    Well done Carrie!!! At least the celebrity gays dont show their private parts in public.

  • ColinG

    Im gay and im sick of hearing about Gay this Gay that Gay Rights this, good for her to support gay marriage but there are so many people who do, what makes this b_tch and specialer, we are all humans, breath the same air.

  • anonymous

    technically, she didn’t say she supports gay marriage. she supports the right to love publicly. just wanted to point that out

  • pffff

    seems like everyone just has to do a statement about their support for gay marriages these days…i’m starting to feel that it is more good publicity than honest declaration.


    Carrie doesnt do anybody a favour. It’s everything about herself and for herself.

  • right

    @ColinG: No you are not gay, you sound too stupid.

  • flutters

    I agree with Carrie: it’s all about the love, and the Bible says the works show the true nature. I’m glad somebody with a wide audience is standing up to say true Christianity is congruent with tolerance and acceptance of homosexuality. It’s time for true Christians to stop hiding behind selective readings of the Bible to attempt to justify their prejudices.

  • Lisa

    A true Christian? You mean like George Bush? What a load of BS.

  • ridikulus

    This is ridiculous. I do not know why celebrities feel the need to do this either. It is important that the Bible says to love others as Christ loved the church. BUT flutters, true Christianity is not tolerant or accepting of homosexuality.

    Listen to this sermon for more information

    You must be from Texas or some other backward shithole.

  • Lisa

    Anyone who starts with “the bible says” is going to start with some major bs, that they’ll conveniently forget when they want to do something that is immoral, like Dubya.

  • ColinG

    @right: I am sure you know me personally, so you sound stupid for telling another person they are gay or not that you do not know, grow up cupcake :3

  • Tiffany

    Just for the record…Carrie is not making a statement…she was asked the question in a interview. She answered it openly and honestly. I commend her for that. I like Carrie for her music and amazing voice. That will never change.

  • Tiffany


    So much for love and not judging people. Carrie seems alot smarter than you. You don’t know her personally and to call her an idiot and say she is a fake Christian does say alot about you.

  • Ryan

    I love her. She is someone strong in her faith, yet true to basic human values and rights. She’s a beautiful person with a beautiful heart.

  • mary

    america and her celebrities keeps disgusting me every time I hear them people are sick people it’s a sickness not normal thing ..we should try to cure them in every possible way and not to encourage people to be gay .. can’t you see these days everybody is gay even the straight ones ..
    I will not be suprised in 30 years later if america allow the molesters and the people who f**k everything to marry’s not normal it’s unacceptable …the true freedom must be in limits the normal limits if not everyone will do what ever they want

  • horseycarrie

    the ugly horse face with a whiney voice will say anything for an extra buck and a tabloid story..

  • dumb

    @mary: stfu and take a writing course

  • Piper

    not a fan but I am now! nicely said, carrie underwood. need to buy her music but still not going to listen to it because i hate country music haha.

  • hahaaaaaaa

    @Piper: So you’re just going to waste your money to make her richer even though you will not listen to it? Boy, there’s a moron if I ever saw one.

  • Love yes…

    We are to love everyone and treat them as we would want to be treated. However, that does not mean you accept sin, any sin.

    If you want to live this lifestyle then by all means do so. Why must everyone accept your what should be private lifestyle. People can’t judge your household if they don’t know what’s going on in it.

    I think the problem most people have is that God intended marriage to be between a man and a woman and you want to change this. If you want equal rights for insurance and etc. then fight the constitution for it. God made man and created woman from his rib because He said it is not good for man to be alone. Now you can turn which ever way you want but the creation was for a man to find a wife and be fruitful. If God wanted his creation to not be fruitful he would not have created a woman. Sin of homosexualtiy came into the world because of the fall of man but it was never a creation that God created, it was sin that caused this. I don’t have a problem with anyone and love all yet i am not going to ever say it’s ok for this sin or any other because the Word of God says it’s not and His word never changes.

    Have a great day!

  • Marriage Yes

    Wake up silly bible thumpers, Jesus hung with 12 dudes, never married, adored his mother and was best friends with Mary Magdelan….do the math.

  • Marriage NO

    To #24: You wake up!

  • rikki

    love you Carrie!!

    The homosexuals aren’t asking the Church to allow them into their congregations and sh*t. All they’re asking is for them to be LEGALLY allowed to get married. Last I checked there was a SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE in almost every state on this planet except probably the Vatican (yes, it’s a legit state ran by the pope and all those bishops). Secondly, Jesus not once turned his back on ANYONE. He tried to preach to those Roman peeps but they didn’t listen, BUT Jesus didn’t go around telling em to go f*ck themselves and rot in hell, did he?! Thirdly, arguing based on religion should newer even be allowed in a court of law bc it’s so arbitrary in nature. A pro-God lawyer can just say, “God said no gays, so no gays!” and a logical/realistic lawyer can just go, “Who’s to say God is even real? If we’re going with that logic, then we can just say…No one has concretely proven God has exist; therefore, He does not exist. Therefore, making your statement invalid”.

    But seriously though, LEGAL MARRIAGE=MATTERS OF THE STATE.


    Don’t start giving me cr*p about how gays should all go to hell because I’m pretty sure Jesus didn’t go around blowing criminals up and zappin them to hell. Oh and the simplest reason why the Church doesn’t have an effing right to meddle, THESE GAYS MIGHT NOT EVEN BE CHRISTIAN TO D*MBASSES.
