A member of Southern gospel singer Kirk Talley’s exgay restoration team sang backup on a song Dolly Parton recorded a few years back, when he worked for her at Dollywood in eastern Tennessee.

Parton has since given that song, Sugar Hill, which appeared on her 2002 project Halos and Horns, to the gay rights group Human Rights Campaign for a Valentine’s Day compilation CD for sale on the HRC website.

Read all about it from Southern gospel music blogger Averyfineline.

There’s no indication that Parton’s backup singers approve of HRC family values — and exgay Melissa Fryrear of Focus on the Family joins the mini-controversy over the CD, warning Christians not to believe tolerance activists when they talk or sing about (gasp) "love" and commitment.
