Gloria Gaynor, the singer of the disco classic and gay anthem "I Will Survive," made remarks on a U.K. radio show July 13 that many listeners considered homophobic, according to the U.K.'s PinkNews online. Though Gaynor, a devout Christian, eschewed answering Radio 4 host Jane Little's question of whether she considered homosexuality wrong, the 57-year-old did invoke spiritual beliefs in explaining her feelings about gay audiences.

"I want to lead them to Christ," Gaynor said in the interview, according to the article. "I want to lead them to him. I want to lead them to truth."

When Little asked directly if Gaynor saw homosexuality as "sinful," Gaynor replied, "I want to lead them to Christ, simply, and whatever he has for them."

Gaynor is currently touring the U.K. Her Billboard hits include "I Will Survive," "Never Can Say Goodbye," and "I Am What I Am."
