‘American Idol’ and ‘Dreamgirls’ star Jennifer Hudson checked in with fans on her blog at Myspace on Wednesday (December 6) after it was reported she told the Dallas Voice in response to her thoughts on same sex marriage: “Nobody has ever asked me these questions. Everybody sins. No sin is greater or different than the other. To each his own. If it don’t bother Jennifer, then Jennifer don’t mind. I don’t really even think about it because I don’t believe in judging people for what they do.” And when pressed on whether being gay was a sin, Hudson reportedly said, “According to the way we’re taught, and what it says in the Bible — it is.” She wrote in response: “It should be a happy day because I heard that the National Board of Review picked me as one of the BreakThru Actresses of the Year. What an honor. I was so thrilled when I heard. But it turned into a sad day and I can’t understand why or how this happened. When you are up, people try to tear you down. Some paper is saying that I have a problem with gay people. It’s just mean and wrong. My feelings are so hurt and I can’t sleep. Anybody that knows me, knows that just ain’t true. It makes me so mad that people can twist your words and say anything they want. And, there’s nothing I can do about it, except to say, please don’t believe everything you read.” Hudson also issued a statement to The Advocate.
