Chris Brown

The Religion and Political Views of Chris Brown



Brown is a born-again Christian who started singing at his church choir, but now uses religion to justify his less-than honorable behavior.

Political Views

Brown hasn't contributed much to the political discussion. He does seem to support Barack Obama, so we're calling him a Democrat.


Chris Brown was born and raised in Tappahannock, Virginia.

Brown is a born-again Christian who got his start as a singer in his church choir.[1]

In his professional life, Brown's faith wasn't really a big deal–until he beat up Rihanna. At that point, he was a music industry pariah, a media demon, and a Christian example of how not to be. But Brown used it to his advantage. Not only did he blame Satan for his deplorable behavior,[2] he said that God was going to get him through the challenging time when everyone hated him. He said:

I am seeking the counselling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God's help, to emerging a better person.[3]

He might have gotten this idea from his mother, who also released a statement saying the whole women-bashing thing was about God somehow:

You see this whole thing isn't about Chris. It's about God. He wants to show all of you the goodness of him through Chris.[4]

What does that even mean? Did God make him beat Rihanna? Because I thought it was Satan. I think these people just use God as a catch-all, fair-weather excuse for anything and everything.


It's unlikely that any politician actually wants Chris Brown's endorsement but he seems to be a fan of Barack Obama and was spotted wearing a shirt that read: "Obama or Die."[5]

Other than that, Brown doesn't seem too politically aware, except for voicing concern over massacres in Syria on Twitter, where he said:

Houla Massacre OMG!!!!! Not cool![6]

Well put. Just brilliant.

And his relations with the gay community are less than ideal. Brown was reportedly using gay slurs at a gym basketball game, calling people faggots and saying things he didn't like (such as a bad play) were gay.[7]

So, I guess we'll call him a Democrat, but no honest liberal would call anyone a faggot. In all reality, Brown probably doesn't care for much–religiously or politically–other than himself.

What do you think of this?
