Kristin Chenoweth: "I don't believe God makes mistakes, and that includes a person's sexuality"

Actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth is a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight," this evening, and discusses her career, her love life and something she rarely talks about – politics. "I am a Christian and I would call myself conservative in some ways and not so conservative in some ways.," she tells Piers Morgan. "And I don't think the gay issue is a political one, but I do think it's a civil rights issue. I believe...people who love each other should be allowed to be married."

Chenoweth continued: "If it was a sin to be short, what would I do? Well I'd be right on the hell bus...I don't believe God makes mistakes, and that includes a person's sexuality." Also on tonight's show at 9pmET/PT – Sir Richard Branson.

    Romans 1:20 – Romans 2. Kristen, if you read this, and pray, i find you may find the scripture doesn't agree with you on this issue.

      Why do so called "Christians" never quote these verses?

      Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death. (Exodus 21:15 NAB)
      All who curse their father or mother must be put to death. They are guilty of a capital offense. (Leviticus 20:9 NLT)
      If a man commits adultery with another man's wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death. (Leviticus 20:10 NLT)
      A priest's daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death. (Leviticus 21:9 NAB)
      Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)
      When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property. (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)
      If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her. (Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NLT)

      Please read this with a earnest heart and pray about it.

      Matthew 7:1-5
      1DO NOT judge and criticize and condemn others, so that you may not be judged and criticized and condemned yourselves.
      2For just as you judge and criticize and condemn others, you will be judged and criticized and condemned, and in accordance with the measure you [use to] deal out to others, it will be dealt out again to you.
      3Why do you stare from without at the very small particle that is in your brother's eye but do not become aware of and consider the beam of timber that is in your own eye?
      4Or how can you say to your brother, Let me get the tiny particle out of your eye, when there is the beam of timber in your own eye?
      5You hypocrite, first get the beam of timber out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the tiny particle out of your brother's eye.

        Funny as a "Christian" she supports and stands Obama.

        Does she know he is PRO Choice... Does she know that he stands for late term abortion? He voted against saving late term aborted babies who are born alive and thrown in a dumpster to die a long and painful death.

        Really a Christian? She has as much blood on her hands as he does for Gods most innocent.

        EndTheHate, we usually don't quote those scriptures to the person pointing them out simply because they are describing YOU.

    In a conversation whit my brother, who by the way is not religious, he said something that made a lot of sense. "Intermarriage within the family is known to produce imbecils, could it be that the same thing causes g.a.ys, maybe not necessarily within the same family, but something that is passed along outside of the family as well." If so, g.a.ys may not be able to help themselves, because it it's a result of the sins of his/her ancestors. Also, if this is the case, it is not God's fault, He gave rules long ago through Moses about intermarriage, and man has violated that rule even up to this day. (Consider all the intermarriage within royal families, with the excuse to keep the bloodlines pure.)

      Being gay is a choice. The person is focusing on the ways of the world, not on Jesus.

      " not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.... Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good." Romans 12:2, 9

    @EndTheHate-3:04 I'm new to this particular blog, but on other CNN BLOGS Christians have made refference to many, if not all the Bibleical texts that you qouted. I'm not sure what point you want to make, but the laws of the land supercedes these laws and rules, remember, this is not a religiously goverened country.

      All gays hate the Lord and their the only ones that insist this country wasn't founded on God.

    @just a thought
    No hate here, just concern and brotherly love!
    The laws of the land will not get disobedient Christians into heaven!
    Believing obedient Christian can obey laws of the land without fore fitting hope of heaven!
    None believers or disobedient can not forgo Christian law without fore fitting hope of going to heaven. . . even if by thinking or saying they are going to heaven. . . it‘s just not so, nor their call to make!
    Only with God’s grace and hopeful obedience can one truthfully have hope of heaven!

    By the way, C.S. Lewis (Clive Staples Lewis), who wrote Narnia; said he would willingly crawl on his chest through a field of broken shards of glass just to share the saving good news of Christ and God‘s word.

    Since George Clooney isn’t acting much like a Christian either. . . if Kristen wants to be evenly yoked with him, they might just work out well while here in this world, unfortunately not that this‘ll necessarily get them into heaven!

    Hopefully either of both might eventually become Christians later in life.

    Lets pray they do!

    Wow. A lot of hate here from those that say they love Jesus. Whether or not God hates gay people is irrelevant to me. He is the only judge. As a follower of Christ, His command to me was to love my neighbor as myself. To fail to follow His commands makes me worthy of His judgement and I'd much rather be the recipient of His grace. This hate has to stop. It is senseless.

    I agreed with every word you spoke Kristin and I thank you for sharing your heart with us. Jesus is love and mercy, not hate and your courage no doubt garnered you His favor.

    Hello there, I do think your web site could possibly be having web browser compatibility problems.
    Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari,
    it looks fine however, when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.

    I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Besides that, wonderful blog!

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she retains the idea of a user in his/her brain that
    how a user can know it. Thus that's why this post is amazing.
