Singer/songwriter Jennifer Knapp tells interviewer she is gay

AMERICAN singer/songwriter Jennifer Knapp, who recently returned to the music scene after a seven-year hiatus with the 'Letting Go' album, has revealed in an interview with Christianity Today magazine that she is a lesbian. Responding to the interviewer's comment that the singer had left music because she was gay, Knapp replied, "That was a straw [in my decision], but there were many straws on the camel's back at the time. I'm certainly in a same-sex relationship now, but when I suspended my work, that wasn't even really a factor. I had some difficult decisions to make and what that meant for my life and deciding to invest in a same-sex relationship, but it would be completely unfair to say that's why I left music." In the same interview the singer revealed that she is not currently attending a church. CR

Hey guys, i don't mean to be rude or anything but being Gay is NOT wrong, i'm Gay and I know 100% that God still loves me 100% and that will never change. So when people say God hates Gay people that's wrong because He loves everyone Gay or Straight. There's nothing wrong with being Gay. Well done to both Ray and Jennifer, keep making awesome Christian music guys! God Bless you all! :)

Good for her, if only there were more people like her to have the guts to do what she has done then we can be rid of this awful inhumane view that somehow gay people are less worthy of our attention, love and respect than the rest of us less than perfect people

Good for her???? HOW CAN IT BE GOOD? When did GOD ever say that being gay or lesbian is good?
And they are not any less in GOD's eyes! Remember CHRIST died for us while we were yet sinners! But, He did not die in vain! Shall we continue in sin?
GOD FORBID!! We will fall, we will make mistakes, but we have to repent and turn back to GOD! NO MAN STANDS GUILTLESS IN HIS SIGHT!!

Really, she's not attending a church is the only other point you can get out of that? Wow. I suppose you must be attending a church for your faith to matter? There was much, much more to that article.

I agree with you Beau. I wonder what church services Elijah was attending when GOD kept him by the brook in the wilderness for about 3 years!
And we all know the faith he had!
