Britney Spears is back in the gay firing line this week after a Q and A tweet in response to who her favourite author was. In the last month alone Britney has called ‘the gays adorable‘ and then dedicated the term bitch in her song ‘Work Bitch’ as a term of endearment that she learnt from her gay friends.
But now she has most certainly put her foot ‘in it’ following an innocent sounding question from Twitter user @yanaemilyhoran’s: “@britneyspears what is your favorite book?”
To which Spears replied “Anything by Max Lucado”.
<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet”><p>.<a href=”https://twitter.com/yanaemilyhoran”>@yanaemilyhoran</a> Anything by Max Lucado <a href=”https://twitter.com/search?q=%23AskBritneyJean&src=hash”>#AskBritneyJean</a></p>— Britney Spears (@britneyspears) <a href=”https://twitter.com/britneyspears/statuses/395328513638539265″>October 29, 2013</a></blockquote>

This has offended many of Spears gay fans as Max Lucado is a known homophobe, who is publicly against same sex equality:
“The Bible never minces words regarding God’s feelings towards homosexual activity,” he has previously railed in an article he wrote entitled What God Says About Gay Marriage. “To the men of Israel, God warned, ‘You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.’… From the start to finish. Scripture categorically condemns same-sex intimacy … [God] categorically opposes it.”
Maybe Britney just missed that one …
