Shock followed by disappointment. This best describes the feelings of a collective group of conservative
Christians across America following 53-year-old Good Morning America anchor, Robin Roberts’ coming out as
gay on Facebook in December 2013.
While reactions have been mixed—some supportive, some not—when it comes to those who do not agree, the
popular media personality’s response is, “I don’t care — you gotta live your life.”
In an interview with Good Housekeeping Magazine, Roberts put forth her views on faith and homosexuality
based on something her late mother Lucimarian Tolliver Roberts, who died in August 2012 at the age of 88,
“My mother always said, ‘God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do,’”
Disobeying the teachings of the Bible, which clearly expresses that homosexuality is a sin, while openly claiming
to be a Christ-follower, creates a bit of a conundrum in the minds of individuals that hold a biblically compatible
view of sexuality.
But not so in Roberts’ case. She does not see it as a contradiction.
