Kristen Chenoweth has been known for her supposed 'Christianity' in Hollywood. But now she has decided that being 'Christian' is no longer enough. Kristen Chenoweth has decided she is Pope.
The actress, who recently starred in a show called Good Christian B**ches (which lasted a shorter time than Manimal due to its Piers Morgan-like ratings), has bestowed upon herself the power to decide what is 'Christian' and what is not. Of course, she uses her new found power to promote 'gay marriage' and bash, you know, actual Christians.

As a big ally of the LGBT community, how do you feel about the marriage equality fights in the US and across the world?
Well I just want it to hurry up and not be an issue anymore! I’m very proud of the work that has been done so far, I want us to hurry it up a bit more.
I think it’s important to say this because a lot of people think if you’re religious or you have any sort of faith, you’re automatically against equality in marriage.
How do you feel about Christians who use the Bible to spread hate?
I think it is very anti-Christian of them. It is the antithesis of what I believe. It is the antithesis of what you should believe if you believe in Jesus. It’s not what he taught, it’s the opposite of what he taught.
If Jesus was to walk the Earth today, or Buddha or anybody, they would be horrified. Those people saying they’re doing it in the name of God? No no no no no.
I have had a lot of flack from my community, from the Southern Baptists. It’s important to say it, as a Christian person. It’s important for me to do it.
I find it amazing all the people who think, "if Jesus were around today, He would be just like ME!" I know, it seems totally out of place for celebrities to be so self-centered. As for Kristen I will give her the benefit of the doubt, I think her push-up bra may be on too tight and cutting off circulation to her brain.
Let me offer a little advice for Kristen and all the other would-be celebrity Popes out there (and you non-celebrities), if you think that Jesus should be more like you, you are doing it wrong.
