David Archuleta Apologizes After Showing Support for Anti-Gay Beliefs

David Archuleta has sent an apology to his fans after he echoed some anti-gay beliefs, which some believe were to support the new Indiana law that could have harmful effects to the LGBT community.

The new Indiana law has received widespread backlash as it is seen as a way for people and businesses to discriminate against those they disagree with, especially members of the LGBT community.

David, who came in second on season seven of American Idol, tweeted a quote said by Boyd K. Packer, President of the Quarum of the Twelve Apostles: “Romantic love is incomplete. It is a prelude. Love is nourished by the coming of children, who spring from the fountain of love…expressed between a man and a woman in marriage. #PresPacker.”

Two days later David released an apology on his website. Read it now on JustJared.com

    This headline is such a complete fabrication — irresponsible reporting at it’s best. David never mentioned any laws or Indiana when he sent those tweets out. There were a direct quote from a church conference talk he was watching about marriage and family. Someone just stuck them under that heading because, hey, what will get more clicks??? I feel bad for all the horrible comments he is receiving on twitter for something he never did in the first place (e.g. supporting the Indiana law). People are calling him some really horrible things and saying he should kill himself, etc. What happened to tolerance or looking for the facts before publicly vilifying someone. I had hoped for more responsible reporting from a site like JJ jr.

    Being gay myself I’m not offended, unlike some people I respect what David believes even if I don’t agree with it. I’m not even going to read the comments on Just Jared, those people should be sterilized for the sake of future generations*lol*.

    I agree with Lawrence who respects people and their opinions- we all like different things but that does not mean we want anyone to be treated less than others- different strokes for different folks- David has his views and affiliations- that is no one’s business but his and his conscious. This is a free country and he should not be made to apologize for having a brain and a mouth to express his thoughts. Pushing anyone to be other than they want to be is wrong, and no one should be chastising anyone from their high horse, and def. not telling anyone to harm themselves :
