Country superstar Carrie Underwood is taking a stand in support of gay marriage.
The “American idol” alum tells the UK’s “The Independent” newspaper that she supports equal rights for all and that love should trump decisiveness. "As a married person myself, I don't know what it's like to be told I can't marry somebody I love, and want to marry," she said. "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."
Underwood and her husband, pro hockey player Mike Fisher, were both raised Baptist. Underwood tells "The Independent" she and her husband belong to a gay-friendly church.
"Above all, God wanted us to love others. It's not about setting rules, or [saying] 'everyone has to be like me.' No. We're all different," she said. "That's what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other. It's not up to me to judge anybody."
