“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20
In her interview with Paper magazine, Cyrus mocked Christians who believe Noah’s Ark was a real vessel: “That’s f–king insane,” she told the magazine. “We’ve outgrown that fairy tale, like we’ve outgrown f–king Santa and the tooth fairy.”
Pop singer Miley Cyrus recently slammed Christian conservatives for believing in “fairy tales” like the story of Noah’s ark and argued that those who hold to a traditional definition of marriage should not be permitted to make laws within the United States.
In a recent interview with Paper magazine, Cyrus, who appears nude within the publication, refers to herself as the “least judgemental person ever.” However, the magazine notes that while she was raised in a Christian home and was baptized in a Southern Baptist church, the “Wrecking Ball” singer “maintains a particular contempt for fundamentalist lawmakers who rally against this sort of progressive, potentially life-saving changes [for the LGBT] community.” “Those people [shouldn’t] get to make our laws,” Cyrus said of Christians who hold to a traditional view of marriage.
The 22-year-old “Party in the USA” singer went on to slam Christians who believe Noah’s Ark was a real vessel: “That’s f–king insane,” she told the magazine. “We’ve outgrown that fairy tale, like we’ve outgrown f–king Santa and the tooth fairy.”
The former Disney Channel star also criticized her parent’s political views, calling them “conservative-ass mother–kers.” Cyrus revealed that she views her gender identity as “fluid,” and told her mother that she was attracted to women when she was just 14 years old. “I remember telling her I admire women in a different way. And she asked me what that meant. And I said, ‘I love them. I love them like I love boys,'” she recalled. “And it was so hard for her to understand. She didn’t want me to be judged and she didn’t want me to go to hell. But she believes in me more than she believes in any God. I just asked for her to accept me.”
She added, “I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn’t involve an animal and everyone is of age. Everything that’s legal, I’m down with. Yo, I’m down with any adult — anyone over the age of 18 who is down to love me,” she said. “I don’t relate to being boy or girl, and I don’t have to have my partner relate to boy or girl.”
Less than a decade ago, Cyrus was considered a role model for young girls. As a teen, the “Hannah Montana” star refused to dress immodestly, telling People Magazine, “I like to look kind of like what girls would want to look up to, and their moms and dads will say, ‘Hey, that’s cool. That’s different.’ ” She also wore a purity ring, signaling her commitment to practice abstinence until marriage.
In 2007, Cyrus referred to her church “the greatest source of strength” and recited Ephesians 6:10-11 as her favorite passage in the Bible, which says, “Finally, my brother, come close to the Lord for if you put on the full armor of God you can stand against the walls of a devil.”
Sadly, like Katy Perry, who famously traded her career as a Gospel singer for that of a secular popstar, Cyrus has since rejected her faith in exchange for fame.
In 2011, the singer’s father, country star Billy Ray Cyrus, said in an interview with GQ Magazine that he regretted having her in the “Hannah Montana Show” and confessed that his family was cautious of the temptations within the entertainment industry before to going to Los Angeles.
“Somewhere along this journey, both mine and Miley’s faith has been shaken…That saddens me the most,” he said, adding there is “no doubt” that his family is being ruined by Satan.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
