Ariana Grande and her big brother, Frankie, are very close, so it would be wise not to get in between their friendship and tight bond. The Catholic Church did just that when they spewed some pretty offensive comments Frankie's way. Catholicism lost this battle.
The Catholic Church is quoted as saying "God didn't love him" because he was born that way. “I adored and worshiped my brother, Frankie, as a little girl – everything he did was cool,” Ariana told The Telegraph. “When my brother was told that God didn’t love him I was like, ‘OK, that’s not cool.’ They were building a Kabbalah center in Florida so we both checked it out and really had a connection with it.”
Ariana was further turned off when “[The church] said Spongebob Squarepants is gay and he’s a sinner and he should burn in hell. And Harry Potter was a sin. And working women. I was like ‘Enough! First the gays, then Spongebob and now Harry Potter? Get out of my house!’” Ariana said in a 2013 interview. "I was not having it. And the working woman thing? It was a moment for me. I needed something else to believe in.”
