And all those other evil sinners.
R&B singer Prince, who’s now a Jehovah’s Witness, indicates in a ‘Talk of the Town’ piece in The New Yorker that he agrees with the most anti-gay interpretations of the Bible:
“Recently, Prince hosted an executive who works for Philip Anschutz, the Christian businessman whose company owns the Staples Center. ‘We started talking red and blue,’ Prince said. ‘People with money—money like that—are not affected by the stock market, and they’re not freaking out over anything. They’re just watching. So here’s how it is: you’ve got the Republicans, and basically they want to live according to this.’ He pointed to a Bible. ‘But there’s the problem of interpretation, and you’ve got some churches, some people, basically doing things and saying it comes from here, but it doesn’t. And then on the opposite end of the spectrum you’ve got blue, you’ve got the Democrats, and they’re, like, ‘You can do whatever you want.’ Gay marriage, whatever. But neither of them is right.’ When asked about his perspective on social issues—gay marriage, abortion—Prince tapped his Bible and said, ‘God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, ‘Enough.””
