Ray Boltz used to sing and write songs about Christ and his church. We dont know if that was all a charade now that Boltz is a self-declared homosexual Christian.
After getting involved with the Metropolitan Community Church, the gay denomination based in California, Boltz is now singing about his sexual sins. Although he claims to still be a Christian, Christ is no longer the focus of his songs.
Boltz’s new song “Dont Tell Me Who to Love” (lyrics at the link) is a predictable tune about the “right” to “love” who you want to love. Symbolism aside, Dont Tell Me is little more than a tongue-in-cheek attempt to sanctify homosexuality.
While I was writing the song “Don’t Tell Me Who To Love” I was not familiar with the supreme court case “Loving v. Virginia.” Growing up in the sixties, however, I was aware of the attitudes concerning people of different races being allowed to marry. As early as the 1800’s, judges had claimed that such behavior would lead to “deplorable results” producing children that were “generally sick and effeminate.” Preachers also claimed that it was “immoral, unnatural and against the will of God.”
Boltz attempts to cast his song as some sort of civil rights anthem while using black-white marriage as a backdrop. More predictability he learned very quickly from the gay movement. I’m highly skeptical any of the black civil rights organization (as gay affirmative as some of them are) will adopt this as a theme song.
Boltz says, “I hope this song encourages us all to say “I know what’s in my heart and that should be enough…don’t tell me who to love.”
Its sure to be a hit with the gay christian crowd. Maybe christian pedophiles will help make the song a cult favorite because after all that’s their argument too.
