Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow Dolly Parton has apologized for an incident at Dollywood's "Splash Country" involving a worker's exchange with two lesbians.
One of the lesbians was wearing a shirt that read "marriage is so gay," and Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) has an issue with that.
"I think a lot of things are gay, such as the disproportionate STDs related to homosexual sex. But marriage isn't one of them," he contends. "Marriage isn't homosexual; marriage is between a man and a woman. The shirt is obnoxious."
That is why a Dollywood worker asked the woman to turn her shirt inside out. But upon hearing about the incident, Dolly Parton has apologized and reiterated her support for the homosexual and lesbian community. LaBarbera feels that begs a question for the rest of America.
"The question is where can normal families go anymore to get away from the promotion of homosexuality? They can't go to the ballpark because they're promoting homosexuality. Apparently, family theme parks are now promoting homosexuality," he laments. "Everywhere you go, people see the promotion of homosexuality -- and they don't think it's appropriate for their children, and they're tired of it."
The AFTAH president concludes that it is wrong for that lifestyle to deliberately be promoted to young people. Moreover, he argues that people who oppose the lifestyle "are tired of being called 'haters.'"
