Yesterday, Rolling Stone online put up an interview with Miley Cyrus where she praised marijuana use and also talked about the trials and tribulations of being a media lightning rod. Perhaps it’s time to ask whether or not Miley Cyrus is a Christian. This may seem like a silly question, especially for those that witnessed the former child star twerking on the recent 2013 MTV Video Music Awards broadcast. However, Cyrus was raised in the church and was even baptized in a Southern Baptist church in 2005.
Nevertheless, Cyrus’ position on gay marriage runs counter to what many Christians believe. “I believe every American should be allowed the same rights and civil liberties,” she once penned in Glamour magazine. “Without legalized same-sex marriage, most of the time you cannot share the same health benefits, you are not considered next of kin and you are not granted the same securities as heterosexual couples. How is this different than having someone sit in the back of the bus because of their skin color?”
One has wonder if Miley Cyrus is really the best possible ambassador for Christianity.
