The Bachelorette has finally opened up about all the hate she’s been receiving after the show teased her conversation with Luke Parker over premarital sex.
“You’re not my husband. You don’t own my body, you don’t own me. It’s my body,” Hannah tells Luke P.
“I have had sex and Jesus still loves me,” she adds.
Here’s what she wrote in a lengthy post on social media.
I refuse to not stand in the sun. I refuse to feel shame. I refuse to believe the lies and evil that flood my comments. I am standing firm in believing that maybe God wants to use a mess like me to point to His goodness and grace. But dang, it’s hard.
The amount of hate I and the men on this journey with me receive…it’s chilling to know so many people want to spread hurt so recklessly.
We all fall short of the glory of God…we just happen to do it on national television.
I’ve realized that a lot of the things that Satan uses to hurt me, come in the form of many of your comments— he uses a grain of truth to steer to evil lies. ‘You’re not enough, you’re dirty, you’re dumb, you’re immature, you’re not worthy…’. It’s upsetting to get messages from Christians telling me I give Christians a bad name.
I’ve lived my life for the world to see and judge and absolutely, I’m hot mess on a stick, I blew it a few times…but I refuse to believe I give Christians a bad name. I’m an imperfect human. Who is yes, also a Christian. And God has a master plan for all the failures I continue to learn and grow from to work out for good, and for his glory.
Thank you to those who continue to support me and my guys as we open our hearts to each other, and in turn…you! We appreciate you and your kindness!
