George Michael slams extremist Christian group who prayed for his death
Music icon George Michael has hit out at an extremist Christian group who allegedly prayed for his death while he was in hospital with pneumonia.
The star spent a significant amount of time receiving treatment for the condition in Vienna and was shocked to discover that the group Christians For A Moral America had wished for him to pass away because they didn't agree with his sexuality.
In a series of posts on his official Twitter page last night, January 3, Michael revealed his disgust at hearing the information:
"Did you know that while I was fighting for my life in Austria there were a bunch of those lovely American 'Christian' organisations, who call themselves "Christians for a Moral America", who were actually taking the time to pray for me to die..."
"How very sweet of them, considering how busy they must be on the whole. Now don't get me wrong, I know for a fact that many devout christians, such as the ones I work rest and play with on a daily basis, are truly wonderful, kind hearted men and women who take the best parts of that religion and live admirable, generous and loving lives."
"But In my opinion, and i think made evident by those who prayed for my death, there are others who use their twisted interpretations of ancient scriptures as a pathetic excuse to be.......wait for it, wait for it.......! Totally f*cked up c*cksucking b*stards."
Watch the very emotional press conference that he gave upon returning to London from hospital in December below:
