Singer Wynonna Judd has hit back at Christian fans who have slammed her decision to perform on a lesbian cruise by insisting she has more gay fans than any other country artist.

Wynonna is planning to set sail on a Caribbean cruise for gay and lesbian couples at the end of this month (29JAN05) and she's annoyed with conservative Christians who are making a fuss about her decision.

Her straight-laced God-fearing fans believe Judd should have said no to the cruise because homosexuality is a sin in many Christian's eyes.

But Judd refuses to discriminate and insists she'll happily debate her decision with any fan who cares to question her.

She says, "I've had the biggest gay following in the history of country music since 1980-something.

"I think it's just the more you talk about love, the more you talk about God, the bigger of a target you are. And so, bring it on."
