Taylor Swift Says Her Style of Christianity Is the Real Christianity in New Netflix Documentary
[FaithWire] The new Netflix documentary “Miss Americana” features pop star Taylor Swift touting her shift to politics, and it takes a left turn when she tries to define what Christians believe to match her own progressive ideas.
In the aftermath of President Trump’s election, Swift has not only been speaking out about political candidates, she’s even been using her music to promote a pro-LGBT agenda. For example, Swift’s rainbow-clad music video last year for her single, “You Need to Calm Down,” is an ode to the LGBTQ community and takes jabs at those who disagree with the lifestyle.
Now one excerpt from the Netflix film “Miss Americana” highlights how Swift has been breaking away from her earlier apolitical image to become someone with a heart for politics, tying it to her brand of religion. One clip from the film shows Swift trying to explain what led her to speak out on her political beliefs, particularly her endorsement of Democrat Phil Bredesen in the 2018 Senate race against pro-life Republican Marsha Blackburn.
“This was a situation where, from a humanity perspective and from what my moral compass was telling me I needed to do, I knew I was right, and I really didn’t care about repercussions,” Swift said.
Swift also came out on the side of abortion in 2019 when she told The Guardian, “I mean, obviously, I’m pro-choice… I can’t believe we’re here. It’s really shocking and awful. And I just wanna do everything I can for 2020. I wanna figure out exactly how I can help.”
