George Michael, who spent the last months of 2011 battling life-threatening pneumonia in an Austrian hospital, has slammed a Christian group in America who prayed for his death.
Speaking in a colourful fashion, Michael took to Twitter “after a couple of glasses of vino” to address the “c**ksucking b*****ds” from Christians For A Moral America who had claimed he deserved to die because of his sexuality and that he could have AIDS rather than pneumonia.
Michael wrote to his followers: “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.
“Now don’t get me wrong, I know for a fact that many devout christians, such as the ones I work rest and play with on a daily basis, are truly wonderful, kind hearted men and women who take the best parts of that religion and live admirable, generous and loving lives.
“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 to be…….wait for it, wait for it…….!
“Totally f**ked up c**ksucking b*****ds.
“And not in a good way…….! (sic).”
However he later joked about the incident, writing “Oh my GOD that felt good. I must be getting BETTER !
“Ok, I admit it, I’ve downed a couple of glasses of vino……life is GREAT !
“I’d better go for dinner before I get in any more trouble. Love to you all, may 2012 be the BEST year we’ve known, not the last, after all x (sic).”
