Skip to comments.Kristin Chenoweth: Christian and Gay Rights Supporter
Posted on 09/08/2011 10:42:09 PM PDT by Cronos
The diminutive songstress who played a high school dropout on Glee and originated the role of Glinda in Wicked is just as comfortable talking about her Christian faith as she is her support for gay rights.
In a recent interview with The Advocate, she explained how she can hold both dear to her heart.
I read my Bible and I pray and all of that. I really do, she told the gay-interest publication. But at the same time, I dont think being gay is a sin. Period.
Chenoweth, 43, who grew up in Oklahomas Bible belt, cited her grandmother as inspiration.
....Asked how she would respond to people who cite their Christian beliefs as the basis for discrimination against gays, she said with a laugh, I would ask, What would Jesus do? It sounds so cliché and Pollyannaish, but I have a feeling if he were on the earth today, he wouldnt be walking around saying, Youre going to hell and Youre wrong, youre wrong, youre wrong. I think hed be accepting and loving.
Using her tiny stature as an example, she said, What would I do if it was a sin to be short? Thats the way God made me, so what could I do? Lets see, I could wear heels, I could tease my hair, and maybe on a good day I could be 51″. But the bottom line is, Im 411″ and thats the way I was put together. And thats what I believe about homosexuals.

Not guilty...but uncertain of her core beliefs.

This ditz grew up in the “Bible belt”?
Kristin Chenoweth: Nothing could be further from the truth. Sodomites (they are most assuredly not "gay") make a deliberate, conscious choice to practice what God has declared to be an abomination. There are absolutely no sodomites at birth. The evils of liberalism has allowed them to believe that their deviancy is not only normal but worthy of celebration.
Through prayer and Christian counseling, there are thousands of well-documented cases of sodomites repenting of their wicked sin and living in accord with the Lord's plan.
Sodom and Gomorrah just flew right past her family, I guess. Jesus is a drill sergeant. He’ll either save you or destroy you. But you will do it his way. Just sad what Christianity has become in America.
Kristin, if you were raised in the Bible Belt you should know your scripture. Sounds like you have a problem with the Author’s standards.
New King James Version (NKJV)
“...who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”
these people are insane.
I wonder she thinks of the indoctrination and sexualization of children??
Then again GLEE is the most anti-family, anti-christian show on TV these days or at least before the NBC porn show started.
Another one whose brain has been scrubbed clean of critical thought.
"Love the sinner, hate the sin" is wrongly attributed to Christ. That's part of the lukewarm, corrupted Christianity that many far too embrace. That aphorism (often used in a context when sodomites are discussed) actually is a variation of what Mohandas Gandhi, a non-believer in the divinity of Christ (and a Socialist), wrote: "Hate the sin and not the sinner".
I always wonder about what Freepers think on having sex outside the marriage. Does the Bible condone it? It used to be condemned in the society, but it doesn’t seem to be any longer. At least not as much as before.
I guess she’s not aware of who calls Himself, “I AM”.
I think that people who have sexual relations outside marriage short-circuit their relationship development skills.
But, is sexual relations outside marriage sanctioned by the Bible? (I’m talking more about pre-marital sex or among divorcee, not cheating, which is still considered bad.) Or we simply look the other way now?
No and no.
An emphatic NO!
"God ordained marriage as his only authorized means of sexual cohabitation." -- Adultery (Ian McPherson). The entire article from this congregation of the church of Christ is worthwhile reading and, in my opinion, it's sound doctrine.
I think the Bible doesn’t make it mandatory to have a ceremony to recognize a union, but it recognizes that the only way that one can honour marriage is to be committed to a person of the opposite gender permanently, without straying.
Anything less is a strike at the foundation of it.
Assuming you mean Christians and not Freepers: You do realize that being a Christian doesn't mean one is sinless. It means we sin just like the next person; sometimes more so. When one is a Christian our hearts repent for our sins and they are forgiven by Christ so that we can be righteous in God's Holy presence.
