Marie Osmond Wants Marriage Equality for Her Lesbian Daughter
Marie Osmond, who was raised Mormon in along with her eight famous brothers, has come out in favor of marriage equality.
Taking the stance to support her daughter Jessica Blosil, who came out to her as a lesbian at age 17, Marie sits down with Diane Sawyer to explain why.
“The God that I believe in is a god of love, not fear…I don’t tell my children if you’re not good you’re going to Hell. I tell my children that God will be there for them when they struggle. That’s the God I believe in…I believe in [Jessica’s] civil rights, as a mother.”
“I think my daughter deserves everything that she desires in life. She’s a good girl. She’s a wonderful child. I don’t think God made one color flower. I think he made many…”
Marie’s opinion is very different from others in her large Mormon family. Her oldest brother Alan and his wife Suzanne hosted an anti-marriage equality rally in Salt Lake City, Utah last Tuesday.
So far brother Donny has remained silent on the subject.
