Gettin’ Cheeky

We loved Kristin Chenoweth for her portrayal of the Good Witch in Broadway’s Wicked, and now we love her even more for showing wicked middle Americans that intolerance is something up with which she will not put.

Kristin Chenoweth

Though she had been scheduled to appear in the Women of Faith concert in November in Oklahoma City, she got disinvited when those Women of Faith learned of her attitude towards gay people. Kristin had said: “I am a Christian and I don’t want there to be any confusion about what I believe or who I am. I don’t believe gay people are going to hell. I believe that judgment is left to the one upstairs and I believe Jesus is all about love.”

Apparently, the Women of Faith don’t believe Jesus is all about love. Turning the other cheek has never had more relevance, and we certainly turn out all our cheeks at those ladies in Oklahoma. What kind of doofus gives up a chance to hear Kristin Chenoweth sing, anyhow?
