In a recent interview, Dolly was asked,

Dollywood attracts lots of church groups, but it has also become a draw for the LGBT community. What does that say about you?

And she said -

"It's a place for entertainment, a place for all families, period. It's for all that. But as far as the Christians, if people want to pass judgment, they're already sinning. The sin of judging is just as bad as any other sin they might say somebody else is committing. I try to love everybody."

 

You have a large gay following. To what do you attribute that?

"They know that I completely love and accept them, as I do all people. I've struggled enough in my life to be appreciated and understood. I've had to go against all kinds of people through the years just to be myself. I think everybody should be allowed to be who they are, and to love who they love. I don't think we should be judgmental. Lord, I've got enough problems of my own to pass judgment on somebody else. "

 

One might think, it's 2014!  Why would these comments be under so much debate, but, they are!  Some people on social media think her comments are out of line.  Meanwhile, those of us who are supporters of the gay community think it's pretty awesome!

Watch the video below, and let us know what you think!  Should Dolly be under criticism for her comments?
