Dolly Parton, who is definitely the queen of country music, has again had to answer questions about her sexuality. What bothers me about this is not that Dolly may or may not be gay (she’s not by the way, she has been married for 43 years. ) but how the gay community in this country continually tries to use the threat of homosexuality against others.
Dolly will be the first one to admit she has no problem with gay people and I believe her but the gay community has a huge problem with itself. Why else would they try to label people “gay” that they don’t like. Take Peter LaBarbera of Americans for the Truth About Homosexuality. Peter is a former All State agent that was fired for writing Christian commentary about homosexuality on his own time. Since then he has taken up to revealing the real purpose behind the gay agenda in this country. Yet every chance they get they try to label him as “gay.” If being gay is so good and wonderful, why do they use it as an insult against their enemies? I believe my Blackness is special and even adds to my worth. There is something intrinsically beautiful in it and you will never hear me go around saying to my enemies, “Oh you are such a Black man!” If I love that part about me why would I use it disparagingly against another? Yet gay people, especially the more militant ones use it to shut down communication from their opponents. They think if they level the charge of homosexuality that will stop the person in their tracks because they won’t want anyone thinking the other side is right. Yet the ploy wouldn’t work at all if the person leveling the charge didn’t believe that homosexuality was wrong!
Yet there is a flip side, with Dolly I believe they want her to be gay because they love her so much. So if someone like Dolly could just be gay too their world would make more sense. Sure they got Elton and Ellen, even Portia De Rossi, but with the gay community it is all about numbers. They need as many people to be gay so they can normalize it, so they can gain even more political power than they already have with their limited numbers. They want us to go: “Hmm if a down home, country girl like Dolly is gay, I guess it ain’t so bad. ” It is even more important for Dolly to be gay then it is for Elton or Ellen because people who listen to country are overwhelmingly conservative. Therefore if they can get an icon like Dolly to be on their team, it would mean having an in, in the last bastion of conservative entertainment-country music.
Dolly is a class act, so she just laughs it off and goes about her life. Which is exactly what she should do. My problem is how they continue to dog her with this rumor. This isn’t the first time she had to answer it. If it was just about Dolly or Peter, I wouldn’t care. My beef is how gays try to play both sides of the field. We hate you, so you’re gay! We love you so you’re gay! Make up your mind. The truth is homosexuality is not a permanent state. The truth is there is something inherently dysfunctional in homosexuality. The truth is this war we are in right now has nothing to do with equal rights. This war is about total domination and utter annihilation of moral codes starting with religion! This is not a fight between gays and straights, it is a fight between God and Satan….very simply put.
Dolly is a fantastic artist and I would still love her music even if she was gay (I still listen to Elton John) but I might just pray a little harder for her if she was. In the meantime, the Gay Elite needs to respect the privacy that it is always saying it wants for itself.
