Morning Tongue Twister: Crazy Christians Come Out Of Church To Curse Carrie Underwood

Remember earlier this week when we all stood and cheered for Carrie Underwood’s wonderful statement on gay marriage. The Christian country singer not only came out for gay marriage, but based her support for it on her Christian values.

In case you didn’t tattoo this statement onto your heart yet, she said, “Above all, God wanted us to love others. It’s not about setting rules, or [saying] ‘everyone has to be like me’. No. We’re all different. That’s what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other. It’s not up to me to judge anybody.”

While you blasted “Jesus Take the Wheel” all week in honor of her statement, 4600 real Christians spontaneously combusted into flames while they prayed for all gay people to spend eternity in hell. Outside of an LGBT-friendly abortion clinic in New York City. That doubles as a gay wedding chapel on the weekends. For interfaith couples who aren’t the same race. And are vegans.

This isn’t the rapture guys. This is what happens when a god-fearing Christian country singer publicly supports gay people. Shit goes cray when country singers go gay. That’s a line straight out of the bible. I saw it on page 6. Or page 19. It’s definitely in the first half of the bible.

The Christian Broadcasting Network brought on Pastor Scotty Smith from Christ Community Church in Franklin, Tennessee to discuss this pressing matter. And he’s not pleased with what Carrie said because, “it’s a broken understanding of what the bible’s actually saying.” The interview itself might get you heated, but it’s worth watching to remind you why we should all be supporting Carrie Underwood right now. For every Pastor Scotty, there are at least 10,000 people with better values and better facial hair.

    I found this really offensive and by that I mean the “crazy Christians” part I am a Christian and I’m not crazy and I am soo sick of all Christians being portrayed as crazy people in movies and in the media, its an insult. My thing about gay marriage, or gay people in general is I don’t judge and or hate them, but I don’t support what their for.

      you’d have to have some sort of prejudice if you didn’t support what “they’re for”, which is the exact same thing heterosexual couples are for. there has to be some sort of dislike on your part if you discourage marraige equality/full rights for only a select minority group. this could be a valid argument if what “they are for” wasn’t something that every other person in america already had the right to do

      @Anya, is it so hard to believe that just because someone doesn’t support it that they also don’t judge or hate them. It’s their own personal belief. Don’t criticize or blow it out of proportion. I’m Christian, I too don’t judge what those who are gay do. But I also don’t support it. I just leave it be, don’t get involved, and they do theirs while I do mine. simple as that.

      I hate articles like this. People that have a false ‘holier than thou’ attitude because they are against anti-homosexual discrimination and yet discriminate against Christians in doing so. Why do you always have to have some group to discriminate against? To make yourself feel better? Or maybe you feel that writing this article will make you more popular with anti-Christian readers? I don’t know, but people like this (Jenni Maier) make me ashamed to admit I support gay rights. I don’t like being associated with this ugly mentality.

    • Jenni Maier

      If one article can make you ashamed to support gay rights, then maybe you don’t REALLY support gay rights.

    • SIVA Ones

      They’re**. And what movies are Christians portrayed as crazy? I must have missed them. All I see is Christians crying over their persecution all while condemning others. Where is this Christian persecution in the land where the majority is Christian? Giving others rights that are counter to your beliefs isn’t your persecution. It’s not the same as taking your rights away. If there is a god and he is the supreme judge then shut your mouth and let him do his thing at the end of the ride. He’ll handle the “sinners” I’m sure. Who made any of these monkeys with a language the mouthpiece for someone or something they do not know and don’t even know even exists. Live your life and stop worrying about what others are doing, especially of it doesn’t impede on your liberty.

    Well, Ms. Underwood should at least get the facts straight. When the religious leaders of His day asked Jesus what is the most important of all the commandments, Jesus responded:

    “Jesus answered him, ‘The first of all the commandments is: `Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.` This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: `You shall love your neighbor as yourself.` There is no other commandment greater than these.’” Mark 12:29-31 (NKJV)

    So, above all, God wants us to love Him wholly, with heart, soul, mind and strength. In John 14:15, Jesus indicates that those who love Him (God), will keep His commandments. Other scriptures indicate that God sees homosexuality as abominable (loathsome) and sinful. It goes against the Creator’s design.

    By the way, how is supporting and/or enabling other’s dysfunction showing love?

      Please don’t generalize your acceptance of what people say by including people you don’t know. Your statement “remember when we all stood and cheered” is false. I’m sure a lot of people didn’t stand and cheer. If you believe in the Bible you can’t pick and choose and take out things you don’t like. I sure didn’t stand and cheer and don’t care what celebrities endorse either because it’s their true feelings or to keep or increase their popularity. Jesus loved everyone and died for us all, but he also cleansed the temple and taught that we should live by the teachings of the bible. We have to make a stand for what we believe also even if we don’t have a public forum to spread it around. People should be very careful what they endorse when they have popularity and we should listen to the teachings of Jesus and not celebrities who the world has put on a pedestal.

    Jenni,

    Truth is sometimes less pleasant than fiction, huh?

  • Robert

    I am so glad I read this article. Now i finally know what someone thinks, what christians say about what Carrie Underwood thinks the Bible says about gay marriage… excellent.

  • FlexSF

    Carrie Underwood is not only beautiful on the outside, but she is beautiful on the inside. Support for legal equality is a harmonious, balanced notion for anyone who is offended by discrimination.

  • TheWordIsUltimate

    It’s plain and simple. It’s either you believe in or you are against the God in the bible. The God in that book itself said that one can’t add or subtract a word from it. And if Ms. Carrie does believe in the God in the bible, she knows that she can’t be selective of which to believe in it . She must also know for a fact that God said in the bible : “whoever denies me on earth, I shall deny in heaven.

  • TheWordIsUltimate

    I know this sucks for the apologists and denialists but the bible is black and white. There is no middle ground. “The path to heaven is narrow.”

    • Jenni Maier

      Are you saying overweight people can’t fit on the path to Heaven? That doesn’t seem fair. Or am I taking what you’re saying too literally. I would hate to take something too literally.

  • TheWordIsUltimate

    Now, before anybody concludes that I am a hypocritic, twisted , sicko fake christian fanatic, I am guilty of homosexuality myself. Idon’t consider myself gay. I am born a man and that is it. I’m just a sinner just like everybody else but I decided to accept Jesus Christ as my personal saviour and I believe the bible.. Love the sinner, hate the sin. I do not support homosexuality.

    • Nikki Kay

      The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.

      If that makes me a heathen, then so be it. I would not want the company of a person like that in my death/eternal life.

  • TheWordIsUltimate

    @Jenni Maier

    I advise you not to mock the bible. I encourage you to take time to read and study it. I was in the same boat as you are a few years ago. I just learned that there is no beating around the bush. God clearly said in the bible that he loaths homosexual acts and homosexuality itself. He also said that men are for women. I let my guard down(pride) because I learned that pride is the greatest fall of man. I hope you remember what I say today so it will become useful to you someday when you hopefully open your heart to this truth.

  • Amy Meyer

    What an offensive “article” and “reporting.” I won’t be visiting this site again.

  • Daisy Mae

    Gay marriage and abortion are both sins against God, am very disappointed to learn of Carries beliefs, have not found her belief on abortion yet, but saddened by the gay marriage acceptance
    Heart breaking

  • Daisy Mae

    Right and abortion ad homosexuality can both be forgiven, one has to first repent and humbly ask forgiveness, confessing as sin and sin no more, but other than that there is no hope
