Reba McEntire, one of the most influential country superstar, has declared her full support for same-sex marriage as she was interviewed with PrideSouce promoting her new album, “Love Somebody,” telling the LGBT magazine a gay grandchild would be a “gift from God.”
Reportedly, McEntire attended her first same-sex wedding of her close friends Michael and Steven, who have been together for 20 years before they were finally able to tie the knot.
“I thought that it was not fair, and I didn’t understand why they couldn’t get married, it wasn’t because they just wanted to get married. If one of them had gotten injured and gone to the hospital, the other one couldn’t make decisions for them. It’s very upsetting. It’s not only for convenience or for romantic reasons — it’s for practicality.
I don’t understand why people have a problem with it, I’m a very spiritual person, but I don’t judge. I try not to; I’m only human. To each his own, and everybody is different. God did not make us all the same. So, I just pray for an open mind and a loving heart, and I think that’s all I can do.
It’s really, really sad what they’re living with before they decide to come out, and then why they decide to come out, and how they deal with it after they’ve come out — the pressure society puts upon them, their families and what they put upon them, whether they accept it or they don’t
You gotta love people for who they are,” she added. “Accept them, and then go on with life.”
