Miley Cyrus left her church because she felt her gay friends weren’t being “accepted”.
The Wrecking Ball hitmaker spoke with her friend Hailey Baldwin about her relationship with religion and her own sexuality.
Speaking on Bright Minded: Live with Miley, Hailey shared: “I think there’s a difference between being raised in church and being an adult and having your own relationship with God and Jesus and spirituality because what my relationship was with faith getting raised that way is completely different than me in my own journey as an adult.
“I found a church community that works for me, where I feel supported and loved and accepted.”
Miley responded: “I had a hard time finding a relationship with God that worked for me as an adult. I think what I just took away from you is I’m allowed to decide what my relationship is with spirituality as an adult that doesn’t have to be aligned with the way that it was when I was brought up.
