Recently, the controversial Amy Grant, known for her newly-found support of the LGBTQ community, hosted a gathering of the National Association of Evangelicals at her venue, the Loft. Grant came out in 2021 in support of homosexuality. “Who loves us more than the one who made us?” Grant rhetorically asked Proud Radio host Hunter Kelly in a July 12 interview. “None of us are a surprise to God. Nothing about who we are or what we’ve done. That’s why, to me, it’s so important to set a welcome table. Because I was invited to a table where someone said ‘Don’t be afraid, you’re loved.’ …Gay. Straight. It does not matter.”
“It doesn’t matter how we behave,” Grant continued. “It doesn’t matter how we’re wired. We’re all our best selves when we believe to our core, ‘I’m loved.’ And then our creativity flourishes. We’re like, ‘I’m gonna arrange flowers on your table and my table.’ When we’re loved, we’re brave enough to say yes to every good impulse that comes to us.”
Transformed from a barn into a music and event space, the Loft played host to a host of mainstream Evangelical speakers, including lesbian authors Rachel Gilson and Rebecca McLaughlin of The Gospel Coalition, Wheaton College professor and former LifeWay executive, Ed Stetzer, South Carolina megachurch pastor, Derwin Gray, and the disreputable former leader of the Southern Baptist Convention’s SEND Network, Dhati Lewis. Worship was led by the ever-popular but theologically compromised Michael W. Smith.
A few weeks later, Grant decided to host her niece’s same-sex wedding. In an interview with the Washington Post, Grant described how she would be hosting a same-sex “wedding” for her niece.
The word “welcome” comes up frequently when talking to Grant. In recent years, she has voiced support for the LGBTQ community, where she has had a large fan base for decades. Now, she talks about her and Gill’s plans to host her niece’s wedding at their farm, which is her family’s “first bride and bride” nuptials. Grant recalls her reaction when she learned her niece had come out: What a gift to our whole family to just widen the experience of our whole family.
“Honestly, from a faith perspective, I do always say, ‘Jesus, you just narrowed it down to two things: love God and love each other,’ ” Grant said. “I mean, hey — that’s pretty simple.”
Of course, we covered it then and questioned how Evangelical leaders could align themselves with such a person who rejects the historic orthodox biblical doctrines that Evangelicals have always held to, not just on sexual immorality, but clearly on the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Christians. In a new interview with People Magazine, she doubled down claiming that she “loves” her niece and her lesbian lover, that’s why she refuses to tell them the truth about their eternal state.
“I own a farm that I bought back in the ’90s and they were just looking for a beautiful place to get married,” she told People Magazine. “So, she and Sam got married on the same hillside where Vince and I got married.”
Responding to what the article in People referred to as “negative feedback,” Grant said, “I never chase any of those rabbits down the rabbit hole, I love my family, I love those brides. They’re wonderful, our family is better, and you should be able to be who you are with your family, and be loved by them.”
In reality, Grant hates her niece. Grant is a selfish woman who has been involved in the Christian faith long enough to know exactly what God says about homosexuality, yet, she refuses to warn her niece and instead, provides a place where her niece can carry out her ultimate rebellion against God. This demonstrates that Grant has created a false god in her own image, one who approves of sin and sexual immorality and does not require repentance and faith. This is the false god that Amy Grant worships and is the false god that she writes music and sings about. Remember that next time you listen to on of her songs.
