Los Angeles, April 8: Putting himself in hot water for a tweet that has been considered by many as an anti-gay message, singer David Archuleta wastes no time to issue an apology.

"Romantic love is incomplete. It is a prelude. Love is nourished by the coming of children, who spring from the fountain of love… expressed between a man and a woman in marriage. #PresPacker (sic)," read his tweet which was a quote from Boyd K. Packer, President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

The tweet has since drawn criticism from many people who considered it as an anti-gay message. Archuleta later issued a public apology that he posted on his website, reports aceshowbiz.com.

"I apologize if I have offended anyone with the quote I sent out Saturday. I guess I didn’t think about the line ‘expressed between a man and a woman in marriage’ being stressed when the whole quote didn’t fit in just 1 tweet," read the statement of the singer on his website.

Archuleta went on stating: "I am sorry my intentions were misunderstood, as my main focus was that too often romance is looked at as the end-all when there is so much more. The bonds that can be there within a family and raising kids, as that is the most valuable thing I have: my family. I do hope however, that whoever may have been offended may know I respect everyone’s freedom to believe and live as they choose."

At the end of his post, the "American Idol" alum concluded: "I hope others can respect what I value most in my life as well. Again, I’m sorry and please forgive me if I offended you." (Bollywood Country Report)
