Kim Burrell isn’t really America’s favorite person right now,  but there are some people in the world who support her.

The legendary gospel singer’s anti-gay sermon that went viral, has even costed Burrell her chance to perform on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show after Ellen herself cancelled the singer’s appearance. But for all the hate the Burrell has been getting, there are people who believe that what she said is factual.

In a petition called, Respect Freedom of Speech and Religion of Rev. Kim Burrell, it says, “We love you sister. We support you, and going to Heaven is more important than being on anyone’s television show or network. We know you love everyone and spoke out of compassion not hatred. We know that there are dreadful consequences to ALL sins. God Bless you and remember the Lord is your Shepherd.”

After quoting a few Bible verses, the petition concluded, “Stand fast on the word of God. Thanks for speaking truth to a dying a world. True Believers in Jesus Christ!” People even took to Twitter to defend the star, tweeting things like:

Do you think freedom of speech should apply to Ms. Burrell’s situation? Or was her rhetoric just too hateful?
