Broadway diva Kristin Chenoweth has criticized fellow Christians who oppose gay rights.

The 44-year-old Chenoweth made her remarks in an interview with the UK's Gay Star News.

"It is very anti-Christian of them," said Chenoweth, who is preparing to launch a musical tour in the UK. "It is the antithesis of what I believe. It is the antithesis of what you should believe, if you believe in Jesus."

"It's not what he taught, it's the opposite of what he taught."

"If Jesus was to walk the Earth today, or Buddha, or anybody, they would be horrified. Those people saying they're doing it in the name of God? No no no no no," she said.

Chenoweth also described marriage equality as "the biggest equal rights issue – at least in our country since the 50s."

"I just don't understand why we're still having this conversation. I want it to be done. I want it to be over with," she added.
