Carrie Underwood Supporting Gay Marriage Is Really Going Over Well

Carrie Underwood Supports Gay Marriage Read More »

Last week Carrie Underwood shocked the shit out of people by going against the grain of her Christian persona and country roots and openly supporting gay marriage. So you’ll be surprised to learn this didn’t sit well with some of her fans who began praying for Jesus to kill her in a car accident. Via Boston EDGE by way of IDLYITW whose take on this I recommend giving a click:

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.

Even worse, some of Carrie’s former fans on Twitter resorted to some really uncalled for comparisons. There’s a line, and these people crossed it:

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

Whoa, whoa, supporting gay marriage is just like being a vegan? C’mon, that’s not fair. She just wants two people who love each other to be able to make a lifetime commitment, not be some pompous dick at a party you want to punch in the nose. Can’t you come up with a more rational accusation? Like, I dunno, her record contract was also a pact with Satan?

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

See? Now doesn’t that sound less crazy and more realistic? She’s simply possessed by an invisible, horned demon who wants her to let gay people be happy instead of stoning them to death like that other invisible hippie guy wants. That’s way more reasonable than, “HOLY SHIT, SHE SHOPS AT WHOLE FOODS! BURN HER!”

    I’m sure for every fan who lacks the education, understanding and respect for every fellow being’s humans right to be treated equally, there will be at least one existing and or new more evolved one who will support her. I for one have more respect for her now.

    • Boo

      Everyone has the same rights, though.

      • Everyone has the same rights in theory, but in practice, there are those who are apparently less equal than some of the rest of us. Especially, I guess, those filthy, vegan and Pagan, peter puffers, fudge packers, and rug munchers.

        Personally, I think the Religious Right are neither one, and should keep their crotch-scratchers out of other people’s business.

    • who cares

      I agree! I like her even more now and will support Carrie as a result.

    “Being vegan and supporting gay marriage doesn’t seem very country at all”, but marrying your sister IS.

    “Another day, and a another ’gospel’ artist signed to ’EMI’ comes out supporting gay marriage”

    Except she’s signed to Sony Music. Ill-informed hate tweet, who’d have thought?

  4. grobpilot

    Underneath it all, many religious people are some of the most intolerant assholes I’ve ever met. Tolerance is not my strong suit, either. But that mostly because a lot of people (not just religious people) don’t deserve to be given a pass when they try to force their beliefs, lifestyles and opinions on others. Fuck ‘em.

    • Smapdi

      Just to be clear, ‘intolerant’ people is everybody who doesn’t agree with you, right?

      • People are dumb

        Uhhhh so it’s intolerant to point out intolerance?

        See here’s the problem…people post hate and threats because Carrie comes out and supports people who have a right to life, love and liberty, right? The same assholes who pray to jeebus (who preached tolerance of everyone!) and talk of liberty and family values practice none of it.

        They are intolerant of any opinion that isn’t there own. See, Carrie never called out any beliefs. She voiced support.

        So am I supposed to sit here and accept hatred? So I don’t have the right to call out intolerance for what it is? Wow. I love how you people think.

      • Smapdi

        People are dumb. I take it you are a person?

    • ihatehypocrites

      “when they try to force their beliefs, lifestyles and opinions on others. Fuck ‘em.” doesn’t that work both ways? why are homosexuals forcing these gay marriage and their lifestyles on society? then condemn those who find it unacceptable to support two men or two women getting married as it taints the sanctity of marriage. All arguments on both sides will always be applicable to to the other. So quit forcing the gay marriage down people’s throats. As they say, you want to be different, then so be it. But don’t expect the society to adjust to you.

    Fucking hillbilly imbeciles.

  6. kimmykimkim

    You know what I’d do if I were Carrie Underwood, besides not sing country music (or be on idol or in commercials…)? I’d tweet all those lame ass, chicken-fucking shit kickers and tell them to go fuck themselves. Burn all my CD’s you little bitches and set your shitty little town on fire. And then I’d remind them that they probably all gave AT LEAST one gay person in their extended family. And I’d tell them to quit buying my records because I don’t want their ignorant chicken fried fingers on my work. Do it, Carrie! If you have any testicles in that little zip-lock bag, you’d do it.

  7. Lemmiwinks

    They don’t buy her CDs. WTWJU (what torrent would Jesus use?).

  8. JC

    Don’t worry, Dan. We know you didn’t suck dick for affection. You sucked it for wadded-up $5 bills. What would truck stop glory holes be without brave folk like you?

    • Jerry Falwell

      Dan didn’t do it for affection OR money, he did it because he LOVES sucking dicks. Good for him!

      • John Travolta

        FYI, Dan also gives the best rim-jobs. Seriously, the man is an artist at ass-licking.

      • Dan from Texas

        I liked all these responses. I don’t care that what Carrie Underwood likes or doesn’t like.
        And I don’t care if you like my opinion.
        I do not agree with created another recognized protected class of people out of thin air. If we start giving rights to every sub-culture out there we will have more laws and PC bullshit we won’t be able to fart without a permission slip.

      • Dick Hell

        A separate class has already been created by denying millions of Americans the rights afforded to the rest of the population. Marriage equality is simply about correcting that injustice. Your notion that it would create a new protected class out of thin air is absurd. They have been here all along… and are still second class citizens thanks to people like yourself who can’t comprehend what American ideals are really about.

      • Dan (YW)

        Hey Dick, we all know this isn’t about going down to the courthouse and getting a piece of paper. Anyone can go get that now somewhere. It’s about acceptance mostly and I along with a lot of people who really don’t care what consenting adults do in their bedrooms, do care about social issues. I really don’t care for the lifestyle and beyond that, because who cares what I think, I care about the degradation of tenants of our culture. I am against the general acceptance and the teaching of tolerance in this matter. I think it is sexual deviancy and loose morality.
        Contrary to what you may believe, this is what I believe. You can call it wrong. But I can equally call it wrong.

      • kimmykimkim

        Dan, please remove “from Texas” from your name.

        Thanks,

        The State of Texas

      • Hey, Dan…you ignorant twat…there are no sub-cultures. There are only HUMANS! And that is exactly the point. You, and people of your ilk, are the ones who create what you call sub-cultures because of your intolerance of the right of others to live theirs lives the way they want to. Dpishit!

      • Oops…misspelled dipshit. So let’s change it to slimy asshole. Ahhh…much better.

  9. Rico Jones

    What did she expect? Did she really think these ignorant Christian morons would be accepting of a woman having a personal opinion that differed from their own?

    • krutboo

      having a different opinion is not really the issue – they view homosexuality as abhorrent and deviant and an affront to God.

      • Abby Normal

        I’ve noticed people tend to get their panties in a wad if you affront their imaginary deity. Go ahead and have your fantasy, just don’t expect rational people to respect you for it.

    • noreligion

      I don’t know what the big fucking deal is.So the Christian or Catholic does not believe or would allow same sex marriage. If that is so important to them, switch religions! Find that sector that supports the same beliefs as yours and stop trying to change what has been there for hundreds of years just because you think it is your right as a gay person. You chose to be gay. You want to have same sex marriage. Now you also want an entire religion to change their beliefs so it can adapt to the choices you made. Everyone just wants their own way. And I’m sick of hearing this argument on equality. You don’t want the rules, get out. Find something that has the rules you believe in. Better yet, create your own religion where all homosexuals can get married. Don’t try to change what is already there even before you turned gay.

  10. Boo Yah

    People like “Dan from Texas” are why I renounced by Catholic faith. I am nothing like these people. “Believe in what I believe, or burn in hell” should be the new slogan for Christianity. It’s unbelievable.

    • Smapdi

      “Believe in what I believe, or burn in hell” could be the slogan for liberals as well (okay, except for the ‘hell’ part). Everyone is too dogmatic about everything. If you don’t agree with a conservative, you are going to hell. If you don’t agree with a liberal, you have mental illness or you equated to Hitler. The polarity diminishes civility, and hinders progress. Be nice if everyone would lighten up a little bit.

      • Kira

        Liberals preach tolerance, yet they don’t tolerate the beliefs of others.

      • Archie Leach

        That cliche is overused.

      • pascalecake

        So we should all tolerate white supremacy because it’s someone’s “belief”? People deserve respect, not ideas — ideas and beliefs need criticism so people can tell whether their opinions are shit or not.

      • Honestly I don’t care what people believe in or the opinions they have. I just want people to live their lives without hating, killing, raping..etc. I don’t think that’s a bad opinion to have and I don’t go around forcing it on people. I respect others with a different opinion until they get preachy or judge me for having my own opinion. If that starts happening I tend to run far away and let them be.

      • @Smadpi: It’s not being intolerant if one side is just plain wrong and hypocritical. Conservatives don’t practice what they preach. They’re not even really that conservative.

      • Smapdi

        Its your opinion that its wrong, and its your opinion that its hypocritical. The other side has a different opinion. Each side is acting like it has achieved metaphysical certainty on an issue that is still under debate.

  11. SkyGod2.0

    Hey, my kid was gay. Why in the hell do you think he hung out with 12 guys all the time. You don’t see me ballin’ about it. At least he didn’t bone that little slut Mary. She could suck the gold off the calf, if you get my drift. I just can’t have that shit.

  12. Successful troll is successful.

    Well played, Dan. Well played.

  13. krutboo

    Actually, homosexuals face stoning as a punishment in a few Arab countries today. Real stoning as opposed to the warped caricature this douche has of christianity

  14. Carrie should read the bible, Cover to Cover it is the quickest way to become and atheist.

    If Christianity and Islam all disappeared and nothing of it was passed down. The world would be a better place.

    • Don’t know about Islam, but Christian charities have helped more poor Americans than every preachy liberal celebutard combined. You’d die of starvation waiting for Sean Penn or Matt Damon to drop off a free frozen turkey on Thanksgiving.

      • Perhaps, but you would live without war if it were left up to secular, rational-thinking people, like Liberals. It is religion, and the overtly religious conservatives who light the fuses of war. Fer fucksake, look at the Iraq/Afghanistan massacres. Totally instigated by religious fanatics — on BOTH sides!

      • Eddie Baby

        Communists have killed millions and millions of people and they do not believe in god. People will find some reason to kill each other if they want to.

      • El Jefe

        Of course you only murdered tens of millions along the way and still continue to murder people up to this day, but keep up the charity work because that is all that matters.

        If there is a heaven, 90% of the so called Christians will not be getting in.

      • maika

        religion definitely has a lot to answer for, but if there was no religion, people would always find a way to create problems and hatred towards one another. Unfortunately it is a part of human nature to be cruel, jealous and aggressive, and to pick on people/a culture that is different. But it is also important to remember there are a lot of good people in this world that try to make it a better place, whether they are religious or not. Respect to Carrie Underwood. By the way i am for gay marriage, but also a catholic. I am not murdering anyone, and am fairly open-minded. I hate war and aggression, and believe that most religions are pretty much the same, or came from the same original ideas. I think at least in Australia, there are a lot of people that think similarly. So not all religious people are fanatics and dumb as bricks.

      • “El Jefe
        Of course you only murdered tens of millions along the way”

        You who? I’m an atheist. Just pointing out the obvious. Christians have done more good than libtard celebs.

      • Machetero

        Take it to the full level it deserves: In Europe and the good ol’ USA, Christian organizations started the welfare system. Charitable Christian associations were interested in reaching out to the “have nots” that the rest of society was willing to let rot in the gutter. The government decided to co-opt that initiative. And that brings us into the concept of “welfare state” that currently exists.

      • Bill and Melinda Gates have given approximately $30 billion to charity…so, there’s some liberal celebrities for you.

        I’m not saying that Christian organizations don’t do good work, they do. But they also do a lot of pointless (and sometimes harmful) proselytizing, and many Christian organizations who give food to the hungry and aid to the sick essentially hold the aid hostage until people accept their evangelizing.

        Christians do not have the monopoly on charity, despite what they would have you believe.

      • Jessik

        i think gay people solhud be allowed to marry eachother and have it called marrage. I think its just discriminating when they dont allow it to be called marrage just because the two people are of the same sex. Marrage is supposed to be the union of two people who love eachother, it solhudnt matter what your gender is.

  15. Jules

    Ha! Her fans aren’t praying for her to die in a car crash. She has a song called ‘Jesus take the wheel’ and theyre saying by her supporting gay marriage Jesus is no longer with her.

  16. lostIC

    now I’m a proud atheist so correct me if I’m wrong here, but doesn’t the bible clearly say “judge not lest ye be judged”?
    I guess the problem is that you have to be able to READ the bible and all that these illiterate rednecks can read are recipes for meth and cornholing livestock. Of course they’re also too dumb to know what that means so they use an actual corncob for it. Trust me on this, I’m from Mississippi, I’ve seen things…

    • Yeah, problem is that other parts of the Bible tell you to judge the shit out of people.

      • maika

        firstly the bible was written by man, no matter if someone tells you its the word of God. It is also seriously outdated. I dont believe it was ever supposed to be taken so literally by Jesus, if he did exist. More as a guide. And its sad that people take it to be the be all. I am a catholic, but im open-minded and try to accept people as they are. I am for gay marriage, especially seeing as i am a musician, and constantly bump shoulders with gay musicians. Its bullshit that equal rights are not open to everyone.

  17. Archie Leach

    I can understand english when it’s written.

    I can even understand english when it’s wrote.

    But I don’t understand english when it’s writ.

    “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.”

    This argument always makes me laugh, since it’s one of the few parts of Leviticus people DO people pay attention to.

    The fact is these people wish that they can say Nigger. That is what this is all about. It’s hateful people trying to hang onto the last thing that they can publicly hate.

  25. Burt

    If these people were absolutely sure that they were right, would they be freaking out at the comments of a pop singer? Of course not.

  26. NOTALWAYSSLOW,K

    Fish, you realize that she IS a vegan, right? it’s not a comparison. She is a vocal vegan, so your whole last few paragraphs/lines there are meaningless. Sorry.

  27. I’m all for her spending more time advocating same-sex marriage if it means she’ll spend less time singing.

  28. “Nothing will make you an Athiest quicker than reading the bible” Penn Jillette.

  29. carrie

    Fish, stop hating on vegans all the time! I don’t give a shit if you eat meat, so you shouldn’t give a shit if I don’t. Also, fellow vegans, stop being holier-than-thou assholes that make other people hate us. And stop supporting PETA, which is such a batshit crazy and hypocritical organization that it may as well be part of the Catholic church. Except they molest ferrets instead of young boys. We think.

    • So, let me get this straight… it’s okay to rip on Catholics, but vegans are off-limits? And you say PETA is hypocritical?

      • Machetero

        Everyone’s a hypocrite all the time. Why are people still surprised by this? I mean, people have been doing it for a while now. God, we’re all so fucking stupid.

  30. I take it everyone’s forgetting “Love thy neighbor”. Oh well. Hate everyone. I’m sure that’s exactly the message your “God”/”Jesus” was trying to send. I never knew just simply loving someone was a “crime”.

    • But they’re not actually neighbors, so it’s ok to hate them!

      • There’s also: “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”, “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you”, “Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles”, “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets”… I’m sure there’s more but that’s a rough chunk of what google gave me.

    this entire debate is tired already.

    are we still talking about gay this and that?

    love everyone.

    • “Love Everyone” That is supposed to be the message of religion, but over time it warped into “Anyone different than us is demonic and must be converted or removed.”

      • It’s supposed to be the message of SOME religions…and Christianity started out pretty goddamned hateful in many ways, it’s not all sunshine and Jesus. There’s all that Rabbinical stuff grandfathered in, plus all the horrible shit Paul (the actual founder of Christianity) put in.

      • maika

        what did Paul put in?

  33. WTF??

    She is doing what the Bible tells people! Not to judge others unless you have been judged yourself. Bible thumpers could learn a lot from this girl.

  34. Taurean

    It is common engouh and you don’t want it. I know that many gay men were even more promiscuous in the days before HIV/AIDS my ex-wife was in theatre/ dance and I know. A few years back I was dating after divorced girls often declined condoms and if I sucked or bf with my guy friends sometimes it was bare. Once in a while I went to my city/county health department for HIV screening and if you answer a survey, you get a really good deal on the test plus counseling. I highly recommend this if you’ve ever had sex with more than one person and check out the US map with the number of AIDS cases and where they are. It’s engouh to make you want to go steady or get married.
