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!”
