Hate Couture? D&G Become Left’s New Targets

avatar

By Tony Perkins

“The only family is the traditional one.” “A child needs a mother and a father.” “The family is not a fad. In it, there is a supernatural sense of belonging.” If you thought these were quotes from FRC experts, think again. They’re the public statements of two openly gay fashion designers: Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.

The minds behind the world-famous D&G brand have been creating more controversy than clothing lately, as the duo comes clean about their surprisingly conservative views. “We oppose gay adoptions,” the couple has said in the past. “I could not imagine my childhood without my mother. I also believe that it is cruel to take a baby away from its mother.” As expected, celebrities have turned on the pair with a ferocity that took the Italians by surprise. Singer Elton John has been the most vocal, calling Dolce and Gabbana’s thinking “archaic” and demanding a Tinsel town boycott of the popular line.

The backlash (one celebrity vowed to set her Dolce on fire) threw the designers for a loop. They’re learning, as we all have, that there’s no room in the Left’s debate for both sides. “I wasn’t expecting it,” Gabbana told reporters. “I wasn’t expecting it from someone like Elton John I used to think — and I stress ‘used to’ — was intelligent,” he continued. “What’s going on? You preach understanding. You preach tolerance. And then you put the knife in? All because someone else doesn’t see things your way? Is that supposed to be a democratic way of thinking? Enlightened? He’s ignorant, in the sense that he denies ways of seeing things that may not be his but are just as deserving of respect.”

It was a powerful statement — one that obviously hit a little too close to home. When it comes right down to it, there’s nothing more threatening to the homosexual political movement than homosexual people who tell the truth.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
