Carrie Underwood Expands on Her Support of Gay Marriage in Allure Magazine
Carrie Underwood was never one to say anything controversial until she opened up about her opinion of gay marriage last year. The former American Idol-turned country megastar was the subject of some ridicule for what she said from those who felt her remarks didn't match with her Christian beliefs. But Underwood hasn't responded to the backlash, or expanded on her comments - until now.
In her recent cover interview for Allure magazine, Carrie was asked about her , calling out those who find it necessary to belittle her based on her personal belief system. She tells Allure:
"I'm in favor of acceptance. I am a Christian person, and I do love the Lord, and I feel no matter who you are, what you believe, how you live your life, it's not my place to judge. I don't have that power...I don't want that power. It's my place to love and to show God's love to other people, even if they don't live a life like I live. So that's where I'm coming from."
In the interview, Underwood addresses the challenges she faces in her own marriage, being married to a professional athlete. She was asked if she felt it was necessary to keep tabs on her husband, professional hockey player Mike Fisher. Carrie was quick to respond with complete trust and confidence in her man:
"We've seen a lot of celebrities, professional athletes, not exactly always being on their best behavior away from girlfriends, wives, families. People would say, 'Do you ever worry that he's an athlete, he's young, he's good-looking?' And I've never had to worry about him because I've never trusted anybody so completely...he just wouldn't do that."
This will be Underwood's third time on the cover of Allure Magazine.
