Carrie Underwood Comes Out in Support of Gay Marriage [POLL]
Country music superstar Carrie Underwood is the latest celebrity to voice support of same-sex marriage. During an interview with The Independent, a British newspaper, America's country sweetheart voiced her opinion on the oft-controversial subject.
Here is what Carrie told the newspaper:
“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. 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.”
The Checotah, Okla., native and American Idol winner grew up in the Baptist church, but she told The Independent she and her husband, Mike Fisher, attend a gay-friendly inter-denominational church in Nashville.
Underwood, one of whose hits include "Jesus Take The Wheel," is sure to cause a stir with her comments, especially considering her upbringing.
