Occasionally, something a person knows is right in her heart makes her question the teachings of her religion. Marie Osmond doesn't think her Mormon faith should keep her from accepting her daughter Jessica, who happens to be a lesbian. Last night Marie told Entertainment Tonight:
"It's so sad that we even have to segregate all these things. The thing that I want is love. I'm a Christian you know (and) Christ was that way, he loved everyone."
Marie said earlier this month that she supports same-sex marriage because marriage is a civil right. She also suggested that the Mormon Church, which was a big supporter of Prop. 8, might have misinterpreted the Bible: "I do believe in the Bible. My daughter understands my beliefs. And, you know, God said to be married and be productive with your children."
It sounds like Marie is trying to be a good mother and a good Christian. Are you surprised Marie, a longtime and very public member of the Mormon Church, is so supportive of her daughter?
