Kristin Chenoweth refuses to choose: she says she is a devout Christian who also supports gay rights.
“I read my Bible and I pray and all of that – I really do. But at the same time, I don’t think being gay is a sin. Period,” she tells [The Advocate] of her view. “I also think there are a lot of Christians who believe like me…My Grandma Chenoweth told me something when I was growing up. My [gay] best friend…I asked Grandma Chenoweth, ‘How can it be that he’s going to hell? I just don’t think that’s correct.’ And she said, ‘Well, Kris, I read the Bible like I eat fish: I take the meat, and it serves me well, but I don’t choke on the bone.”
Kristin talked about staying firm in her belief in her new album, ‘Some Lessons Learned,’ although she says mostly the album is meant to be inspirational for women.
“I wanted it to be full of hope and inspiration for women like me: women that have had love but haven’t found the right one yet.”
Kristin’s also set to star in the new TV show ‘Good Christian Belles.’ That show sounds satirical: I wonder if these issues will be brought up at all.
