Bless you Carrie! I hope more People of Faith will also stand up to the religious Fascism of Christian Fundamentalists!

They scream about how their religious freedom is being trampled but this shows they have no problem trying to do the same thing to others.

They are fuzzy on the freedom of religion thingy. Freedom of religion also meant freedom FROM religion if one chooses it. This is NOT, nor never was, a theocracy. We all see how grand THOSE societies work!

I particularly liked what she said about how her faith has taught her not to stand in judgement or make rules for others.

It was one of the most elegant bitch slaps to Tony Perkins I've seen in a while.

“As a married person myself,” she explained,“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.”

Carrie also mentioned that her own place of worship carries the same message.“Our church is gay friendly… Above all, God wanted us to love others… It’s not up to me to judge anybody,” she said.

Carrie made a huge mistake by saying she supports gay marriage, and by saying she is a Vegan, and by supporting PETA. First off, marriage is meant to be between a man and a woman. She needs to think about what she is representing. She is representing all of country music. Country music isn't about having gay marriage. I used to think she was a great singer but now, evertime I hear her on the radio I turn the station. It makes me sick. I was there the night she was asked to be a mamber of the Grand Ole Opry. I have seen her in concert many times. I know now I wasted my money by seeing her. She needs to issue an apology to all her fans. It is absurd. You know, If she would've just kept her mouth shut and said I have no comment on what that London newspaper asked her, I wouldn't be here writing this. I used to think Carrie was great, but until she issues an apology, you won't see me buying anymore of her records.

I'm sure she's real worried about you and your minimum wage job when she cashes her immense pay checks.

Do some thinking, other than what others tell you to think. Now, with a nickname like **Curt**eese, just what do you THINK my real first name is?
