That is just stupid. Completely stupid. If those people don't want to live around gays, then they should go out with their families on a boat and live in the ocean.

Couldn't be said better than that.

What that County deserves is a HUGE, flamboyant and extremely crowded Gay/Lesbian parade. It would be fun to see their faces.

These guys have just created a new reference value by which we can judge stupidity... In the future, when we'll want to characterize something as being absolutely, totally stupid, we'll be able to say: "As stupid as a Rhea County commissioner".

And, as much as I disagree with the Gay Pride Parade concept, that would be something to watch, a Gay Pride Parade in Rhea County...

Non-issue, especially with the fact that if someone did not know beforehand, how can they kick anyone out without cause?

>> "county can charge homosexuals with crimes against nature" <<

so they have not seen the PBS special on two male chimps gettin it on in the wild, NATURALLY? In nature (were talking about non-human animals here), if a two of the same gender were isolated from a group, being gay is naturally expected. They won't look for a female they've never known or met. Don't give me that "how were they born then" crap, I'm talking about short-term. It doesn't have to be widespread to happen. But how do some equate that because it is not seen to happen that often means it is not supposed to confuses me.

>> "Rhea County is one of the most conservative counties in Tennessee" <<

Good for them, I do not care. But, IMO, if they are not Amish, they are frauds.  Wink/being sarcastic

>> "In 2002, a federal judge ruled unconstitutional the teaching of a Bible class in the public schools." <<

Considering there are more than just Christian-born folks in the US, that is justified. I do not want to hear any of that "then go home" crap against US-born non-christians. Maybe you should pry open you eyes.

I hate to do this, but what exactly IS this special treatment that we supposedly want? Are we asking for affirmative action hiring policies? No. Then what is this special treatment?

Tell me something I don't know, cuz baby, I've heard it all.

I fear this will turn into a huge flame war. So much I want to say and I hope to be diplomatic about it, even in the responses.

For decades, only hetero couples have been allowed to form partnerships recognized by the government. Homosexual couples are now asking for the same 'special' right. Homosexuals have also asked for the 'special' right to not be discriminated against in the work place and in housing as well.

There are plenty of heteros that slag around from bed to bed, so that point is moot.

The thing that bothers me is that people keep equating human with animal. With teh whole "it's natural"argument. This sis definately not the case. We are definately on a higher playing field than animals. I applaud rhead county for taking actions that its citizenry wanted. That is what elected officals do represent teh will of the people that voted for them. I may not agree that we should all live in our seperated communities of homosexual over here, secular humanists over here and so on and so forth. I also resent the statements about southerners. We are not ignorant nor are we stupid. We ahve our own ways fo doing things and thats ok because everyone does things differently.

Firstly, you mean 'gays', not 'gay's'.

Secondly, the concept of civil unions would apply to hetrosexuals too.

Here is how things stand now:

If I were in a long-term relationship, I would be able to put my partner on my insurance coverage and retirement coverage through my job and likewise (I hope) he would too, but we would not have that one piece of paper from the county or state that says we are one. Access to one piece of paper. That is the 'special' right gays are asking for.

Casual dating is completely different and should not fall under this category no matter what the orientation of the couple. I personally feel I am not yet ready to make that sort of commitment. I have had people ask me if I am married yet. Why would I be married? Their answer: 'you can legally get that piece of paper now.' Oh, sure that's a good reason.

Back on topic: Where in Teneessee is this county? What possible reason would they have for banning gays?
