The Religious Popstar who Rejects Hateful 'Doctrines'

When Australia singer and X-Factor judge Guy Sebastian first came onto the scene, his association with a 'mega church' in his home city of Adelaide was made a great deal of in the media. More recently, he has spoken up more on that. "People thought I had a certain set of beliefs, which were very narrow, which is the complete opposite of who I am. People were putting me in this weird system of beliefs and judgments I didn't belong in," he told the Australian press.

I guess it's a good thing that religious public figures should come out and reject that hateful parts of their religions publicly. This is important, for example because the anti marriage equality people love to claim that all religious people are offended by marriage equality. This is simply not the case.
