Carrie Underwood does it again and leaves us all in tears after she was told she shouldn’t sing about Jesus.
One of our favorite things about Carrie Underwood is that she isn’t afraid to share her faith with others. She has never been ashamed to share her beliefs with all of her fans and her husband Mike stands by her too!
Although we knew that Carrie Underwood was in love with Jesus we had no idea that she was going to be making a surprise appearance at PASSION 2017 which is a huge Christian conference founded by a pastor in Atlanta, GA. Thousands of young adults gathered and worship God and little did they know that Underwood was going to show up.

Although many were ecstatic to have the country star in their midst, The Tennessean reported that others were not too proud of it. In fact, they couldn’t believe that PASSION would allow Underwood to perform because she once suggested at supporting gay marriage.
One of those people was Wesley Wildmon, the director of outreach for the American Family Organization. He wrote an article in Engage magazine which is run by a Christian nonprofit he owns stating why he felt it was inappropriate for Underwood to be on stage leading worship.
“I was very frustrated that you would allow her to help lead thousands of people in worship. My frustration quickly turned to disappointment and then to sadness,” Wildmon writes. “Carrie Underwood encourages and supports homosexual marriage, which the Word of God does not (1 Corinthians 6:12-20) … With the many Christian artists who believe and teach the full counsel of God’s Word available to lead worship at Passion, why would you choose one who publicly states homosexuality is not a sin? … Your approval gives thousands of unsaved or weak Millennials an untruthful image of what the Bible says about marriage.”
This wasn’t the first time that she has been attacked for her support of gay marriage and Underwood spoke about it a couple of years ago stating that she was trying to give an honest answer.
“Someone asked me a question, and I tried to give an honest answer,” Underwood told Redbook in 2013. “If someone won’t like me because of that, then maybe they were looking for a reason not to like me.”
Do you think Underwood shouldn’t be able to sing Christian music because of this?! Let us know in the comments.
