Christian recording artist Lauren Daigle sang her signature song “You Say” earlier this month on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Daigle’s performance came not long after she took some heat for her wishy-washy response to a question about the morality of homosexuality. When asked if such a lifestyle was sinful, the singer replied, “I can’t say one way or the other. I’m not God.”
Watch Daigle’s performance:
Christian comedian John Crist unloaded on those who criticized Daigle for sidestepping the question about same-sex relationships, telling her detractors to “just shut up.”
“Lauren Daigle — I’m sorry, like hundreds of songs lifting up the name of the Lord and led people to the Kingdom and articles and stories,” he said, “and one time she doesn’t say something that isn’t how you liked it? Get out.”
Questions about the Grammy-nominated singer’s perspective on homosexuality first arose in early November, after she performed on Ellen Degeneres’ daytime talk show.
When she faced criticism for appearing on the host’s program, Daigle said she “can’t choose who I’m supposed to be kind to and who I’m not, because that’s the mission, right? Be who Christ was to everyone as well.”
