Folk singer Michelle Shocked on Wednesday denied accusations that she made anti-gay comments during an appearance Sunday in San Francisco.

The incident led to an outcry and the cancellation of most of Shocked's U.S. tour.

“I do not, nor have I ever, said or believe that God hates homosexuals (or anyone else),” Shocked said in a statement given to CNN. “I said that some of His followers believe that. [I was] predicting the absurd way my description of, my apology for, the intolerant would no doubt be misinterpreted. The show was all music, and the audience tweets said they enjoyed it. The commentary came about ten minutes later, in the encore. I'm very sorry: I don't always express myself as clearly as I should. But don't believe everything you read on Facebook or Twitter. My view of homosexuality has changed not one iota. I judge not. And my statement equating repeal of Prop 8 with the coming of the End Times was neither literal nor ironic: it was a description of how some folks – not me – feel about gay marriage.”

“I am damn sorry. If I could repeat the evening, I would make a clearer distinction between a set of beliefs I abhor, and my human sympathy for the folks who hold them.”

But audio from the concert that surfaced on Wednesday raised more eyebrows and appears to contradict Shocked's version of the events.

“I was at a prayer meeting yesterday,” she's heard saying in the audio. “And you have to appreciate how scared, how scared people on that side of the equation are. I mean, from their vantage point, and I really shouldn't say their, because it's mine too, we are nearly at the end of time.”

“And from our vantage point, we're gonna be, uhhh, I think maybe Chinese water torture is gonna be the means, the method – once Prop 8 gets instated and once preachers are held at gunpoint and forced to marry the homosexuals. I'm pretty sure that that will be the signal for Jesus to come on back. You said you wanted reality. … If someone would be so gracious as to please tweet out, 'Michelle Shocked just said from stage, 'God hates faggots.' Would you do it now.”
