Country superstar, Carrie Underwood, came out in support of marriage equality — a move that could alienate her more conservative fan base.
In an interview with U.K. paper The Independent, Underwood said:
“As a married person myself, 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.”
The 29-year-old entertainer says her support for marriage equality comes from her Christian beliefs, not in spite of them.
