Kristin Chenoweth: Being Christian and supporting gay marriage not mutually exclusive

Kristin Chenoweth makes no attempt to downplay her Christianity or her support of gay marriage in a video released today by the Human Rights Campaign.

The Emmy and Tony award winning actress describes herself as ‘an American and marriage equality supporter – yup, I’m also a Christian.’

She then lists other things about herself that reflect ‘how I was made’ including being ‘a shorty,’ ‘an Okie,’ a lover of gospel, and a dog lover.

‘Look, the bottom line is that regardless of how you were made or who you love, you should be able to get married,’ says the actress. ‘I truly believe it is that simple and I’ll keep speaking out until marriage is an equal right nationwide.’

Same-sex couples can legally marry in 19 states and the District of Columbia.

Meanwhile, 31 states have a law or constitutional amendment restricting marriage to the union of one man and one woman.
