We knew we loved Dolly Parton, but THIS makes us even MORE obsessed!
The iconic country singer has always had a large following in the gay community and it looks like she's well aware of this!
In fact, she loves and accepts them as they are!

This isn't the only AH-MAZING thing that Dolly said, however! She also addressed Christians, who are another big section of her fans, some of whom use their religion to pass judgment on other people.
'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.
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.'
YAAAAASSSS!!! Preach it, Dolly!
Using religion to explain an unnecessary hatred of a group of people is completely unwarranted and we LOVE that Dolly feels this way too!
You go, gurl!
