SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - The headlines are all over the internet, suggesting that Marie Osmond has a gay daughter and that the singer supports same sex marriage.
And that's exactly what Osmond seemed to be saying in a radio interview which aired in Los Angeles Tuesday.
In that interview, Marie Osmond talks openly about her daughter, her faith and gay marriage.
And her comments do seem to suggest she supports what the LDS Church does not.
Marie Osmond told KOST 103.5 in Los Angeles,
"One of the things that we have to be careful of is that we don't create hate. Because people believe certain things and we can’t make everyone become homogenized."
Osmond found herself on the radio responding to recent reports that her daughter is gay.
And while Marie Osmond's assistant told ABC 4 the singer would not comment on this further, the radio interview soon led to a discussion of same sex civil unions and marriage.
Marie Osmond: "Everybody has a right to believe what they believe. But I do think everyone has a right to have civil rights."
Marie's comments also seem to stand in stark to contrast to those of her brother, Donny.
On his website, Donny Osmond fully supports the LDS Church's oft stated belief that marriage is between a man and a woman.’
But listening to his sister's comments Tuesday, it appears Donny and Marie do not agree.
Marie Osmond: “I believe everyone should have the right to share homes and finances with somebody that they care about. You know, on those types of things, I am very supportive. When it comes to marriage, you know, I think civil rights need to be for all."
Now, in the interview, Marie Osmond also says it’s important to follow the Commandment, "Love Thy Neighbor."
And she also makes clear that she loves her daughter very much.
