Ariana Grande Renounces Catholicism for her Gay Brother

Posted on: October 22, 2014

The famous 21-year-old singer Ariana Grande has revealed that she recently renounced Catholicism for her openly gay brother after he was rejected by the church. She disagreed with the Christian faith’s teachings about her elder sibling Frankie’s sexuality, but they both found a “connection” with Kabbalah, the offshoot of Judaism that has attracted many celebrity followers.ariana-frankie-grande-article

“When my brother was told that God didn’t love him I was like, ‘OK, that’s not cool,’” she said in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph. Grande discovered the Kabbalah religion shorty after because there was a new Kabbalah center in Florida that the brother and sister duo decided to check out.

In a 2013 interview with the UK’s Metro newspaper, she said she lost faith in Catholicism when the Pope said everything she loved was evil. “[The church] said Spongebob Squarepants is gay and he’s a sinner and he should burn in hell,” she said. “And Harry Potter was a sin. And working women. I was like ‘Enough! First the gays, then Spongebob and now Harry Potter? Get out of my house!’”

Grande is very close with her brother Frankie and recently defended him on Instagram after a troll referred to her brother as “that homo.” Ariana responded with: “That ‘homo’ is the fiercest, most incredible, funniest, most intelligent, kind hearted and most LOVED person on the face of the planet! he is incredible and i am SO proud!!!! oh and also ‘that homo’ gets more ass than you’ll ever get in your life. k miss thing?’” It’s obvious that the young singer is very protective of her family; her ability to speak out in defense of her gay sibling will likely inspire many of her younger fans.

Since practicing Kabbalah, Grande says her life has changed for the better and unfolded in a beautiful way. It’s always challenging for young people in the public eye to make personal decisions that escape criticism, but it seems like Grande and her brother are doing just fine.
