Devout Christian Carrie Underwood catches huge flak from country fans for supporting gay marriage
Not surprisingly, she has faced a huge backlash of anger from her country fans. People have left all sorts of comments to the effect that they will never listen to her again, they're very disappointed in her, they have lost all respect for her, she is "disgusting," etc., etc. Some of it is really hateful from people calling themselves "Christians." Hundreds and hundreds of comments I found, a real firestorm of hate and rage.
Of course, I admit when it comes to gay marriage, a celebrity is not going to win expressing any opinion. If you come out against it, I'm sure she would have received some backlash from gay rights groups, but I don't believe like this.
Here's a couple of comments that stood out to me:
"It looks like Carrie is not the believing Christian she claims to be. Read the Bible again and repent Carrie."
"Wow! God destroyed 2 cities in the Bible because they were full of homosexuality. So, Carrie and her husband supports gay marriages while calling themselves Christian? A church who is gay friendly? Are you serious? Talk about an abomination."
Here's what I love about these two comments. These two people are talking about Carrie being a false Christian ... yet Christ, the religion Christianity is named for, NEVER preached against homosexuality, not once; homosexuality is never mentioned in the Gospels. The one guy referring to Sodom and Gomorrah ... an old Hebrew testament ... was written more than a 1,000 years before Christ was born and had nothing to do with Christ. Really interesting, I think.
