George Michael has launched a tirade of criticism on Twitter against a Christian group who prayed for his death whilst he battled life-threatening pneumonia last month.
The openly gay singer, who was taken ill at AKH hospital in Vienna, Austria last November, has been criticised by religious group Christians For A Moral America, who suggested the former Wham! star was suffering from AIDS and that he deserved to die because of his sexuality.
Taking to Twitter after 'a few glasses of vino' last night, George called the group "c**ksucking b***ards".
He wrote: "Did you know that while I was fighting for my life in Austria there were a bunch of those lovely American 'Christian' organisations, who call themselves 'Christians for a Moral America', who were actually taking the time to pray for me to die?"
He added: "How very sweet of them, considering how busy they must be on the whole.
"Now don't get me wrong, I know for a fact that many devout Christians, such as the ones I work, rest and play with on a daily basis, are truly wonderful, kind hearted men and women who take the best parts of that religion and live admirable, generous and loving lives. But in my opinion... there are others who use their twisted interpretations of ancient scriptures as a pathetic excuse to be... wait for it, wait for it...!
"Totally f**ked up c**ksucking b***ards."
Adding a little humour to the situation, George quipped: "And not in a good way...!"
The singer then expressed his relief, saying: "Oh my GOD that felt good... I must be getting BETTER!
"Ok, I admit it, I've downed a couple of glasses of vino... life is GREAT!"
Someone's certainly feeling better!
