Fantasia Barrino slams Gay Marriage

Fantasia Barrino slammed gay marriage on Instagram today. She has since deleted the post, but a screencap is available.

I’m very disappointed. Obviously, she doesn’t realize that she has legions of gay fans who have supported her from the very beginning — through everything that she has gone through in public. It’s also perplexing how she doesn’t want to “be judged” and yet judges others in the process. SMH

Read what she wrote:

“I Rise ABOVE IT ALL!!! THE WORLD IS GONE MAD. KIDS, THE GOVERMENT, THE church House… Everybody Trying!!!!!!! Its a lot that going on that the Bible speaks about we should Not be doing. Weed legal in some places, Gay Marriage Legal BUT YET IM JUDGED!!! Im not doing Nothing for you… My Life!!!!”

One commenter on her Instagram says it best: the Bible also says we should not be doing adultery.

it's sad to see our nation divided on this issue. Back in May 2012, North Carolina voted no for the same sex amendment act based solely on just reading the first lines regarding same sex marriage.

To be honest..i have been raised in church since i was born..and i truly believe in God 100%...i totally agree with Loretta Jefferson...what everyone has failed to realize it there is alot to the bible that just was not God talking. The bible has been translated over and over and over again. Man eventually started to put what they wanted to put in the bible. Did you know that the bible condones slavery? yea ofcourse not cause people just read what they want to and they dont pay attention to the big picture..Man recreated the bible and all tho most of the things in the bible seem correct ,however you have to have a personal responsibliity to trust in your own personal beliefs. I am soo tired of people saying gay people are going to hell..thats bullshit and its not ANYONE PLACE to say where ANYONES GOING.. GOD IS THE RULER NOT MAN. GOD KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING WHEN HE DID IT. AND IN RESPONSE TO PAUL D., LISTEN MI MAN...OFCOURSE GOD DID NOT MAKE TWO MEN BECAUSE THATS NOT WHAT HE WANTED TO DO.. AND IF YALL REALLY WANT TO GO DEEP.HOW DO YOU SUPPOSE THE WORLD REALLY GREW AND GOT TO THE POPULATION IT IS NOW.??? HMMM  LET ME C .....ADAM AND EVE JUS MADE THE WHOLE WORLD BY THEMSELVES HUH??? NO!!!!!! OBVIOUSLY IT HAD TO BE INCEST GOING ON AND I GUESS GOD CONDONES THAT TOO HUH?!?! (JUS THNK ABOUT IT IF ADAM AND EVE WERE THE ONLY TWO PEOPLE ON EARTH..THEN THEY HAD TO B SLEEPING WITH   THIER KIDS AND GOD ONLY  KNOWS THE REST) I GUESS BLACK PEOPLE BIENG USED AS SLAVES IS PART OF GODS PLAN TOO HUH?? SO ALL THESE PEOPLE TALKING BOUT READING THE BIBLE NO YOU READ THE BIBLE!!!!! AND THE BIBLE SAYS NO MAN IS PERFECT BUT YET U MUST STRIVE IN HIS PERFECTION. YALL SAY WE HAVE A CHOICE...YES WE HAVE A CHOICE TO DENY WHO WE REALLY ARE..I WAISTED OVER HALF MY LIFE TRYING TO MAKE EVERYONE HAPPY INCLUDING MYSELF BY KEEP TELLING MYSELF I WASNT GAY..THIS IS BEFORE I EVEN KNEW WHAT A PENIS AND A VAGINA WAS...I KNEW I LIKED WOMEN AS A FREAKN KID!!!!!! GOD SAID WE ARE ALL BORN INNOCENT..HOW IN THE WORLD AS A KIDS DO U HAVE FEELINGS LIKE THAT??? I KEPT LIEN ABOUT WHO I WAS  AND CRYING EVERYDAY TO GOD TO HELP ME DO WHATS RIGHT FOR MY LIFE..WELL IM LIVING MY LIFE LIKE ITS GOLDEN AND YALL WILL NOT ELL ME MY GOD DOESNT TALK TO ME.. NOBODY HAS THE RIGHT TO SAY ANYBODY GOING TO HELL...I HAVE A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH MY GOD AND HOW DARE ANY OF YOU PEOPLE CAST JUDGEMENT..JUST LIKE FANTASIA, SHE GOT SEX TAPES OUT AND I PROMISE NOBODY HAD THE RIGHT TO JUDGE HER FOR HER CHOICES....AND THAT GOES FOR GAY PEOPLE TOO..GOD KNEW THE WORLD WASNT GONNA ALWAYS REMAIN THE SAME....  JUST LIKE COMMUNION SERVICES AT CHURCH...YALL DRINKN GRAPE JUICE AND EATING  CRACKERS LIKE THATS WHAT GOD REALLY DID!!!!!! NAWL JESUS DRANK WINE!!!!!! REAL WINE!!!!! SO YES THE LORD WAS GETTING RIGHT AND I U TELLING ME I KANT?!   IS THAT A LIE OR DO WE NEED TO PULL OUR BIBLES OUT PEOPLE..????!!!!!!

Wow! This is what our sad, sad media has reduced themselves to?  No REAL news, just a bunch of modern day lynching of people.  And why?  They didn't asked to be idolized, they just have a talent that they happened to share with the world.  Now they all have to be Jesus Christ?  Really?  C'mon now, I'm sure there are other POSITIVE things you can blog about right?  Or, maybe not!!!  SAD AUTHOR, SAD POST!! #GAMEOVERTRYAGAIN

Hats off to Fantasia promoting the "truth!"  I'm not a fan, but it's good that there are those who will say what needs to be said with no apology.  She has made some big mistakes, but at least she is apologetic.  Forgiveness comes when a person realizes, and changes.  For those who continue to live in their wrongness, there is no forgiveness from God.  For those gay Christians, when you live that lifestyle, you are saying that the God you believe in made a mistake....he made you one sex,, but you say He messed up and you should be the other sex!  The God that we are in relation with is infallable, totally incapable of messing up.  Could it be that your surroundings, experiences, and your own choices caused you to go after the deception of living a gay lifestyle?  Fantasia, even with her mistakes, knows that Truth....kudos for her speaking up!

If it is her personal belief then she should keep it to herself and do not display it for the world to see.   just saying

I only supported her because Rickey loved her so much; was never a fan and now I feel vindicated. Goes to show fame does not improve attitude.

(Long story. Stick with me, I swear it's going somewhere. Also, this isn't really meant as a rant against Fantasia. She's not a policymaker, so her beliefs aren't something that I'm going to get too invested in. Besides, as an American, everyone has a right to his or her beliefs, whatever they might be. But this is more just a generalized rant about how the movement against gay marriage is the biggest load since laundry day at Riker's Island):

 

So today on TNT, I saw a rerun of an episode of Castle in which the "case of the week" involved a man living a double life. 

He was a wholesome family man working for a green energy company, and was an adoring father to his wife and kids. Until he's discovered murdered. At which point, two women come in to identify the body. His wife...and another woman claiming to be his fiance. 

As it turns out, the man had been lying to both women, coming home to his wife while having an apartment in the city for the purpose of courting this woman, to whom he proposed. The case continues, and it's eventually revealed that the victim lied on his resume to get a job at the green energy company. It was an airtight resume with real contacts...all of whom lied for him so he could get the job. But why?

We learn that it's because the victim was working for a rival corporation, and was engaging in corporate espionage, attempting to learn the green energy company's secrets from the inside. To do this, the victim cheated on his wife with the woman who would become his fiance. Unbeknownst to the man, however, the woman he was courting KNEW he was a corporate spy, and was sent by HER employers to string him along. 

So let's recap: Two people pretend to be in love and go so far as to get engaged in order to continue stringing the other person along. Neither loved the other, or even really knew the other very well, and was only using them as a means to an end. 

And those two people have more of a right to get married than two gay people who love each other.

If any kids ever ask you what "bulls***" is, just tell'em that, and they won't have to ask you a second time.

It's not ok, in her opinion, for gays to marry? But it's ok to date a married man and get knocked up by him? Ummmmm..... Yeah.

We all know TASIA grew up in North Carolina where her grandmother was a Pastor. Her conservative views toward this issue is her personal belief.  No one should bash her for this.

Now, why would she do that?? Stupid on her part. It leaves her wide open for ridicule and judgement of her lifestyle. Besides, why would she want to alienate her fans that are gay?

Fantasia words were taking out of context. She love all of her fans RICKEY. I'm very dissapointed in you for even posting this on your website. FANTASIA has changed her life for the good. 2013 is looking great for her. She doesn't need bad press like this trying to tear her down. TEAM TASIA

@TrueGee lets clear the record up. Fantasia DON'T have a sex tape out there. I do believe that God ordained man and woman as a institution of marriage. The devil main goal in life is to TRICK or deceive mankind from God's Ultimate Plan. That is why you seeing people who know the truth about marriage go against the Word of God. Read the Word of God.

@LorettaJefferson yes Jesus drank wine. Since he was perfect being. He understood how much to drink and never get drunk. As Christians today some churches believe in wine drinking for communion. I grew up in church where grape juice was used. Some people can't drink wine or alcohol because they may be recovering addicts not trying to go down the same road again. Agree? God know our heart and if we believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and really mean it, we are lining ourselves with the Word of God.

@Rickey @QKW24 I dont agree. So she can't be aware of what's going on in the world. Most of these singers are not even politically aware. I don't mind TASIA saying what she did. I still support the cause. Her music will always be the best. I'm looking forward to the album. Trust the LGTB demographic will support her still. they love her.

I am not judging.  This is what the bible says verbatim.  I did not change one word.

Romans 1:26, 27 [26] for this reason God gave
them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function
for that which is unnatural. [27] and in the same way also the men abandoned the
natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men
with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due
penalty of their error.

@petrie your really comparing pedophiles to being gay!! I think it says judgement is a sin also so you are as bad as a pedophile.  small minded people, really?

As humans we learn from our mistakes. So People should not hold it against us. ADULTERY, stealing, anything man. The only person who will do the judging is our LORD AND SAVIOR Jesus Christ..

@QKW24 Ows? Gay marriage is a bigger issue than Fantasia's struggles with bad press. She's such an easy target because of her own actions -- the biggest being: If she's such a devout Christian, then why did she have a baby with a married man? Furthermore, she actually had an abortion previous to said baby. I thought Christians were anti-abortion?
