George Michael blasts US Christian group
'Careless Whisper' singer George Michael has blasted a US Christian group after they prayed for him to die during his recent battle with pneumonia.
The group titled as 'Christians For A Moral America' claimed that he could be ill with AIDS rather than pneumonia and said he deserved to die because of his sexuality, Daily Mail reported.
The openly homosexual singer, who battled life threatening pneumonia at the AKH hospital in Austria last year, took to his twitter account to lash out at them.
"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. 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," he posted.
