Come for 'The Homosexual War,' stay for the gay icon's theme park

by Jeremy Hooper

Right now, as we speak, Tony Perkins and fellow evangelicals are getting together in Sevierville, TN, for what they call the Answers in Genesis Megaconference. At said conference, they enjoy sessions with "charming" titles like this one:

Ooh, a war. Sounds militant. Should I be scared? Lock my doors? Locate my camo tank top? Let me know, "values voters."

But declarations of war against my family aside, I want to now turn attention to the activities that these very same conference organizers are suggesting for attendees. Here are the big two:

This would be the very same Dolly Parton who is an ardent support of LGBT rights. Apparently the anti-LGBT attendees have no problem supporting an entertainer who resists their agenda, so long as they make their aggressions known before playtime or dinner. They can beat the drum for "Homosexual War" and then hop on Dolly's coasters or dine on her restaurant's fried chicken.

As a Tennessean, I get it. Dolly brings people together! She, someone who has spoken out against groups that judge gays, is a great example of what Christianity (and the south) could be.

I just want these folks to know that Ms. Parton is not a foot soldier for their "war." If it were to come down to it, I think we gay folk are pretty confident about where she would stand.
