Britney Spears calls anti-gay preacher her favorite author

Britney Spears has called an anti-gay preacher her favorite author.

Oops, she’s done it again. Britney Spears has offended her LGBTI fanbase by calling an anti-gay preacher her favorite author.

During a question and answer session on Twitter, the ‘Toxic’ singer and gay marriage advocate was asked about her favorite book.

‘Anything by Max Lucado,’ she said, the author of such books such as ‘God Thinks You’re Wonderful’, ‘Experiencing The Heart of Jesus’ and ‘You Are Special’.

In 2004, Lucado wrote an article called What God Says About Gay Marriage in which he claimed homosexuality is one step away from ‘legalized incest’.

He said: ‘How will homosexuality impact our culture? What about the spread of disease? If gay lifestyle and gay marriage is endorsed – what follows? Polygamy? Legalized incest?

‘If we can’t draw a line, will lines be drawn at all? Men and women were not intended for identical gender but opposite [sic].’

When promoting her new music last month, Spears was accused of generalizing gay people when she called them ‘adorable and hilarious’.

She then later attempted to gloss over this by saying her new single ‘Work Bitch’ was a tribute to her gay friends.

‘I don’t call everyone…that word. I just use it as, it’s like in respect to the gays as a term of endearment,’ she said.
