Singer, songwriter, and sex promoter Kandi Burruss (pictured), who also co-stars on the hit Bravo reality TV show “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” is under fire for releasing her new gospel song, “Stay Prayed Up,” with famed pastor and gospel singer Marvin Sapp, reports the Christian Post.

Apparently, Burruss, who also has a sex toy line and hosts a late-night, web-based, sexually explicit talk show, “Kandi Koated Nights,” is being harshly criticized by those who feel that she is not righteous enough to sing gospel. Critics took to Burruss’ Webstagram account to tell her exactly what they think of her sashaying in to the gospel circuit when she appears to be living a life that is seemingly not righteous enough for them:

 msaeli @kandiburruss great song, but I’m just curious, why do you make a song about staying prayed up while you wallow in sin? You’re living unmarried with your boyfriend (man)? You sell naughty Bedroom Kandi. Maybe that’s why you need to stay prayed up? Before everyone beats me up with their words, I want you to know I love you and your music, but this song is contradictory to your current lifestyle. Not sure if you’re Christian, but if so, be an example to your daughter Only! Make sure she knows her worth and understand her value, so easy she’ll receive what God has for her. If you don’t mind, some reading for you (Bible: Romans 6, 1Corinthians 7, Thessalonians 4:25 to end) God bless

candina2ral There’s nothing wrong with making a profit its how you advertise it…. It’s nothing wrong with praising God is your relationship with Him. Yes we are human and have wants and needs but if you display yourself as this ultra-sexual woman for years then that’s what youre [sic] labeled as ((REMEMBER)) image is everything

Burruss is not without her supporters, though:

caramelnikki @msaeli I’m a fan of kandi but not a huge fan but I want to ask u a question ? Just bc she says she prayed up tht mean she suppose to be perfect? We all sin the only diff. With it is tht she is a celebrity.. I pray and go to church all the time and I sin so does tht mean I’m not worthy for prayer? Just bc someone sin different than u does tht make u a better person? I dnt judge anyone by how they live there life I’m just trying live mine… Does tht make me a bad person? I’m just curious??

mrsjj09 @msaeli John 8:7 Let he who is without Sin, cast the 1st Stone at her. @kandiburruss Stay Blessed!! 

black_barbie_30 Love your song…watching you and Marvin Sapp love it!!!! Bump what ppl say we only have one judge. I always was told God uses imperfect ppl….be bless you deserve all His blessings!!!! 

Burruss, who freely admits she is a sinner while sharing her testimony in the song, took to her own Instagram account on Monday to discuss her decision to record the now No. 1 iTune song on the gospel charts, “I knew when I decided to do it that I would be criticized. That’s to be expected,” Burruss wrote on the photograph-sharing website. “I am honest about who I am. My great-grandfather and my grandfather were Bishops in The Church of God Holiness. I believe in God but I have always struggled with the rules of the church, just like a lot of people.”

Meanwhile Sapp, who is a minister, seemed to have left any judgements to be made on Burruss with his master, the performer wrote on his Facebook page:

“Been in services all day and didn’t get the opportunity to see #RHOA but I wanna thank @Kandi for sharing her heart through song in a different genre and asking me to be apart of that process… #gogetit at ITunes now……”
