Carrie Underwood Betrays Her Christian Faith


I’ve always thought well of Carrie Underwood, the season four winner of “American Idol.” I even have her praise and worship song, “Jesus Take the Wheel,” on my Ipod.

Alas, “the country Christian gal from Oklahoma,” as E!Online described her, has gone Hollywood on us.

In an interview with The Independent, a British tabloid, Underwood declared her support for same-sex marriage.

“As I married person myself,” she said, “I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love, and want to marry. I can’t imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love.”

Well, Carrie, does that apply to Erin Sayer, the 35-year-old Brooklyn high school teacher who had a love jones for a 16-year-old student she tutored?

Or how about Valerie Darger, who fell in love with husband Joe, who already happened to be married to her twin sister Vicki and yet another wife, Alina?

And what of the 24-year-old daughter of former Columbia University professor David Epstein who loved to make love to daddy?

Do they have the right to love, and love publicly, the people they want to love?

I think not.

What I find most disturbing about Underwood’s comment is that, like President Obama last month, she attributes her twisted thinking on same-sex marriage to her professed Christian faith.

“Above all,” she said, “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 get on with each other. It’s not up to me to judge anybody.”

That doesn’t sound to me like the Gospel, but like some new age Hollywood mumbo-jumbo.

Sure, we’re to love others. But we’re also to hate sin. And the Bible clearly states that carnal love between persons of the same sex is a sin.

Carrie Underwood and her ungodly friends in Hollywood Babylon can muster whatever dubious arguments they want in support of same-sex marriage.

But that will never make it right in the eyes of God.

  1. It is simply this. Underwood has the right to believe what she wants, even if she is wrong. We also have the right to declare what we believe. We believe that Underwood is a traitor to the real God and has joined with another. No rules? Sounds like a two year old pouting because they were told what to do. God is love? Go is certainly all loving and all justice. He made the rules we must obey. My advice, keep showing the world who people like Underwood are. They are the ones who try to crawl into our Churches as a sheep in wolves clothing. Yes, she has beautiful music and her father was the chief music angel in heaven.

  2. The OP’s arguments against being gay use as examples pedophilia, polygamy, and then incest. Those never actually relate to just being gay. So if a woman wants to marry just one woman, they’re both over 18, and not related to each other, it’s ok?
    And the question is not just a matter of your religion, but what the state, the government does. Catholics can’t remarry, for example, but if divorced Catholic Susan wants to get married, city hall doesn’t ask the Church its opinion about whether she should get a civil marriage license. We’re talking about civil marriage, not what your or anyone’s church religious practices are.
    Carrie didn’t say that your church has to support gay people getting married (although some do, btw). The question is what the government does.

    • Are you saying that the government should take a laissez faire approach to marriage? That anyone who wants to get married to anyone else should be able to do so under any and every circumstance?

  3. If Carrie has it right, the the Bible must be wrong. I do not hate homosexuals. I have friends that are homosexual. I hate the sin of homosexuality. I love my friends. I also hate the sin of excessive drinking orther sexual sins and imoralities such as lying, and stealing. I mostly hate my own sin, I am nothing but a sinner saved by grace. God is holy and He wants us to live holy lives. Cariie is the victim of not being properly discipled in God’s word. I don’t think that she has left the faith, I think she doesn’t fully understand what she is saying. I also thing she is under a lot more pressure to say the “right” thing than we can ever understand.

    Maybe Carrie has it right? Have you considered that her “mumbo jumbo” might be much more Christ centered than your HATE? For god’s sake GET HELP.

    • Are you suggesting is that the majority of Americans are haters, since they oppose same sex marriage?

      • Anonymous on said:

        Actually, the majority of Americans now favor legalizing same-sex marriage. Polls have been trending in that direction for a decade.

      • Yes, I’ve seen outlier polls suggesting majority support for same-sex marriage. When they are put to the test, most recently in North Carolina, they always prove false.
