Carrie Underwood is a southern conservative “Christian person” who supports gay marriage. The American Idol winner isn’t afraid to publicly support gay marriage even as some of her fans have voiced their problems with it.
In the February 2013 issues of “Allure” magazine the country superstar discussed her reasons for supporting same sex marriages. Underwood, 29 broached the topic and how it religious beliefs.
Carrie Underwood told a British newspaper, “As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love. I’m in favor of acceptance.”
“And I am a Christian person, and I do love the Lord, and I feel no matter who you are, what you believe, how you live your life, it’s not my place to judge. I don’t want that power.”
“It’s my place to love and to show God’s love to other people, even if they don’t live a life like I live. So that’s where I’m coming from.”
Carrie Underwood also touched on the backlash she’s received for coming out in support of same sex marriage. “I feel I’ve done a few interviews where someone is coming from an accusatory way.”
Underwood revealed that she won’t read any of the fan mail that addresses same sex marriage. Carrie said she actually doesn’t really care what people think.
“If mail comes to my house, I don’t check my mail. I don’t want to know. I just run my own race.”
“If somebody doesn’t like you, they’re going to find a reason not to like you. As soon as you give them something like that, they’re going to be like, ‘Ha, ha! That’s it.’ So that’s fine. They probably didn’t like me in the first place.”
