Former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood has come out in support of gay marriage. The married, 29-year-old country star believes everyone has the right to marry the person they love and share the same happiness. Despite criticism that speaking out for gay marriage could cause her to lose some of here more conservative fans, Carrie Underwood is firm in her belief that everyone is created equal by God when it comes to marriage.
“As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love,” Carrie Underwood said in an interview with London newspaper The Independent. “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.”
