Lewis Hamilton, Formula One car racing champion, has blasted the Catholic church for not endorsing and blessing same-sex marriages.
Hamilton made it clear that it is unacceptable in these changing times that the Catholic church will make such decision, headed by the Vatican, not to bless same-sex marriages.
This statement by Hamilton was spurred by the opinion of Elton John, who was also against the Catholic church and made a post earlier in the week.
Elton John wrote: “How can the Vatican refuse to bless gay marriages because they ‘are sin’, yet happily make a profit from investing millions in ‘Rocketman’ – a film which celebrates my finding happiness from my marriage to David?? #hypocrisy.”
Hamilton reposted it, adding:
“Standing in solidarity with Elton John and the whole LGBTQ+ community on this issue.
“It is unacceptable that in this day and age, anyone should face prejudice or discrimination based on the person they love, especially in the name of God who we are told loves us all equally.
“It is incredibly sad that many will now feel they have to choose between their faith and being their true self, and I want my followers to know that I stand with you and I support you, and you deserve happiness.
“Love is love, don’t let anyone tell you differently.”
