First heard on Fox News Channel...

Somebody wants not only to disallow them from living in that county, but also to be able to charge them with a crime. And it's the same county that put a teacher on trial for spreading the Devil's insidious propaganda called "evolution". Perhaps someone should suggest to them that they secede...

Tenn. County Wants to Charge Homosexuals

DAYTON, Tenn. (AP) - The county that was the site of the Scopes "Monkey Trial'' over the teaching of evolution is asking lawmakers to amend state law so the county can charge homosexuals with crimes against nature.

The Rhea County commissioners approved the request 8-0 Tuesday.

Commissioner J.C. Fugate, who introduced the measure, also asked the county attorney to find a way to enact an ordinance banning homosexuals from living in the county.

"We need to keep them out of here,'' Fugate said.

What they need to do is to pass a law declaring that idiots, and bigots, like the ones who passed this asinine thing, be barred from public office.

Merging the two threads that deal with this issue...
St. Louis must be destroyed!

Me: "I have a job and five credit cards and am looking into signing a two year lease.  THAT MAKES ME OLD."
Josh: "I don't have a job, I have ONE credit card, I'm stuck in a lease and I'm 28! My mom's basement IS ONE BAD DECISION AWAY!"
~~ Josh, winning the argument.

I simply have to ask... What is a GORRAM Bigot? Is it somehow different from your average run of the mill Bigot?  ;)

All of us ornery, opinionated, ExIsle pundits appear to be in agreement here.  Does this mean the apocalypse is at hand?
