Appearing on Ora.TV's Larry King
Now, Parton, 70, was asked about her support for LGBT rights.
She told host Larry King that she
“I do not believe that we should
criticize or judge other people,” Parton said. “I think we
should be accepting and loving. We're all God's children. We are
who we are and we should be allowed to be who we are.”
“Did any of the faith-based
communities that deeply believe the other way take umbrage with you?”
“Oh, absolutely,” Parton
answered. “I keep saying, 'Well, if you're the fine Christian
that you think you are, why are you judging people?' That's God's
job. … We're supposed to love one another.”
“We are who we are. If you're gay,
you're gay. If you're straight, you're straight. And you should be
allowed to be how you are. And who you are,” she added.
