Kristin Chenoweth Says Christianity Should Be A Good Word
Singer/actress Kristin Chenoweth has long been in the unusual position of being a devout Christian who's a fave of theater queens everywhere.
But she says Christianity ain't necessarily a bad thing.
As she just told Parade.com:
"I think it's important to remember that Christianity was based in love and tolerance and forgiveness and acceptance.
"I don't want Christianity to be a negative word anymore. I want people to understand that there is a group of Christians out there who want to be more open and understanding and tolerant and loving of all kinds of people, even the people that don't believe in God at all.
"I guess that's one of my purposes in this life, to make sure people know that Jesus would have taught the same thing and did teach the same thing.
"If he were alive today, where would he be hanging out? He wouldn't be hanging out at Neiman Marcus. He probably wouldn't even be at church. He would be downtown feeding the poor and helping the sick. That's what it's about."
OK, great. Can we be more tolerant of Christians now that we know they can be more tolerant of us?
Or are you too busy at Neiman Marcus, knowing you won't have to fight with our resurrected savior for bargains?
