Singer-songwriter Mary J. Blige does not buy into the notion that being a Christian is incompatible with supporting gay marriage.

The 42-year-old Grammy-winning Blige, a born-again Christian, was asked how she reconciles her support for marriage equality with her faith.

“I would say this to those people: I'm not God,” she told LA Confidential. “God said not to judge anyone lest you be judged. That's it. Who am I to point my finger? You've got to walk in love. To say you do not want people to be happy is so mean, so not me.”

“God loves me no matter what,” she later added. “He loves me high. Sober. Gay. Straight. I can't let the world tell me anything different.”

Before performing at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, Blige said she approves of the inclusion of marriage equality in the Democratic Platform.

“I think it's wonderful,” she said. “I think people that support love … It's amazing. It's love,” she said.
