Some Hearts 

lack compassion

Executives at Arista Nashville, the record label of country cutie Carrie Underwood, might be biting their nails after the Oklahoma native expressed an opinion at odds with many in her conservative fan base.

Touring to support her new album, Blown Away, Underwood told British newspaper The Independent that she supports gay marriage.

“I
think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the
people that we want to love,” said the 29-yearold singer and
Baptist-raised devout Christian. “It’s not up to me to judge anybody.”

Well, some conservative fans certainly judged the American Idol and
Grammy winner for making such a statement, and took to — where else? —
the brain farm known as Twitter to unleash their wrath.

@sharon_monteith, with an apparent finger hovering angrily over the
caps-lock key, ready to strike like a provoked cobra, “I will NOT
SUPPORT Carrie Any Longer & IT BROKE MY HEART TO READ!:(“ Typed
@PreachermanTom, “She must not read her Bible!” More examples of venom
with no attention paid to rules of punctuation? OK:

—“Equal rights...yea sure!!!

Carrie Underwood read the bible.. Honey!! The bible says..

Adam
& Eve... Not Adam & Evan” —“If GOD says it makes Him
sick.......then to all Christians alike....it should make them sick to
their stomachs as well.”

—“Sorry can’t purchase your CD until you get your mind out of the liberal gutter trash of Hollywood.”

In
response to the homophobic hubbub, Underwood told the Associated Press,
“I was asked a difficult question in the last five minutes of an
interview and I answered it the best way I knew how.”

Amen, girl!
