Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is confident when it comes to speaking out her mind on delicate topics.
The actress, who plays Holly Holliday on season 2 of “Glee”, has just used her Goop blog to discuss the issue of gays and religion. In a recent post titled “Homosexuality in the Bible,” she is asking whether or not the Bible really condemns homosexuality.
“A few months ago, in the heat of the tragic teen suicides that came about from intolerance of homosexuality, I saw a man on television who was apologizing for wishing death on gays from his Facebook page,” wrote the 38-year-old. “This member of an Arkansas school board was contrite for the violence in his words, but maintained that his values pertaining to homosexuality would remain, as he felt homosexuality was condemned in the bible.”
“This concept, while foreign to me, is interesting, as it used to justify so much judgment and separation in our society,” the Oscar winner went on to admit. “When my daughter came home from school one day saying that a classmate had two mommies, my response was, ‘Two mommies? How lucky is she?!’ ” She concluded the post by writing, “What does it actually say in the bible that will cause some people to be upset by my line of thinking?”
