Melissa Etheridge Defends Standing Up For Rick Warren

Yesterday Melissa Etheridge appeared on Michelangelo Signorile's SiriusXM radio show to speak about her defense of Rick Warren. Etheridge responded to her critics by saying, "I am sorry if they felt like in any way I undermined them. I truly believe everyone has their perspective and position on this. I’m glad for the activists who say this is not right to include someone who has spoke very poorly about a community that got this man elected...I also know I had this experience that I had to speak about...I think the best thing I can do for the gay community is speak my truth and say this is what happened to me."

Listen to the full interview here
. Etheridge appears genuinely clueless to some of the things Rick Warren has said about gay people.
