Folk singer Michelle Shocked on Monday denied accusations that she is homophobic.

Appearing on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, Shocked told host Piers Morgan that she is not opposed to gay relationships or marriage equality.

The interview comes nearly two weeks after Shocked, who once self-identified as bisexual, went on an anti-gay rant, telling an audience in San Francisco that allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry “will be the signal for Jesus to come on back.”

Many venues responded by canceling the singer's upcoming appearances.

“Let's try and keep it simple for the audience, because you were born a Mormon, you converted to become a born again Christian, and many Christians have views about gays and about gay marriage, and other issues. Are you somebody that objects to a gay lifestyle and to gay marriage?” Morgan asked after Shocked twice dodged the question, “Are you homophobic?”

“I am for the last ten years so deeply in love with a man, that the idea of living my life without him is impossible. I know how much I love him. And knowing that passion that I have for him, would I ever want to deny that to anyone else: Absolutely not.”

“So you're not homophobic?”

“If you want to keep this simple for the audience, let me just give you a straight no, I'm not homophobic,” said Shocked. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
