Hi. New here. Me and my life partner, Doug are moving to your neck of the woods to get out of the concrete jungle that we presently call home. We are wondering if there are any gay bars? I would imagine there isn't any, considering the size of Blue Ridge. No matter. We are social creatures at heart and hope we can make friends within your community. Complementary drinks will be served at our home once we get settled in. We presently are looking to invest our money into a profitable business. We make great cocktails. I'll make sure to spread out fliers when we are ready to receive company.

Sorry to say Mr. Black, no gay bars for miles and the community here seems downright against it, and homosexuals in general.

Personally I got nothing against'em, but you may find your stay here a little lukewarm if you get my meaning. Expect a lot of uncomfortable people.

We need a gay bar here. Good idea for a business.
Something the area needs . Even a nice gay coffee shop that we could all enjoy.
Downtown would be a good spot .

Really? Why on earth would anyone be uncomfortable with it? This is the 21st century. You can't catch what I have, and I can assure you I am not remotely attracted to straight people besides in a pure and platonic way. Seriously.

*Sigh*

No matter. No drinky-winkies for those who fear what they do not know. Speaking of fear...should we fear men in white bedsheets with burning crosses?(Kidding...well mostly.) Doug wouldn't like that much. I, myself am rather fearless. Perhaps it's my stature. No one thus far has stood in the way of my happiness. I've stood in the face of adversity and have overcome many obstacles. I work hard and play even harder. I feel like I've earned my right to be here on this planet just like everyone else has.. I'm sure..

Thanks for the forewarning and most of all for being civil. That goes a long way with me. I have mad respect for that. Hope to meet up soon.:-)

>Why would anyone be uncomfortable with it?
Years of Christian brainwashing, just to start things off.

>This is the 21st century.
And yet we're being held back by those who don't believe in stem cell research, abortion being a choice, and people that thing the world and America is 2013 years old. Feel free to take the bait, topix.

>You can't catch what I have,
And yet people are still wanting to give you a wide berth.

>Speaking of fear...should we fear men in white bedsheets with burning crosses?
KKK is more suit and tie now, assuming you see them without their robes. I wish I was kidding.

There are many closet gays in fannin county.
I know a lady that says her husband only married so his mother wouldn't know he was gay.
He grew up with few to identify with.
Nice if some gay places open so all people have a place to go.

We all gay or straight sit beside these hypocrites in churches on Sundays.
What cowards they are that they must lie about who they really are.

Oh dear. That is a bit unsettling. It also sounds like you have a clear disdain for a few of the locals. Oh goody, at least I'll be in good company with you, WTN. We are like-minded with our political views.

Err...that last post was directed at WTN.

Here Marty:

"We all gay or straight sit beside these hypocrites in churches on Sundays.

Indeed.

Pity that the hypocrites don't realize they hold the key in setting themselves free...free from their own self imposed prison. That (THAT!) is the worst travesty of all right there. Forget about the hypocrisy. Who's enjoying their life? After all, we only have one life... Live it. Live it to the fullest.

So good to meet your acquaintance, Marty. Hope to see you around.:-)

I'm not a social person. I'm almost always at home. I have no urge to be social with anyone. Outside a few friends and a few family members.

I'm not political. I just voted for a black guy to be in office within my life time, and vote people into office who have stupid/funny names on the ballot.

I forgot to mention that my views are not political, but simply stating that humanity is being held back by petty morals and the like. Most inventions and human progress aren't from morals, regulations, sunshine and rainbows. It was people who went further, who went around the law, and sacrificed human life for ends to meet.

Hey JOe Black.. My husband and I are also moving to Blue Ridge soon.. I love Cocktails, so I hope you extend an invite our way when you get here...

ZORO

Not that I believe that being gay is a sin,but as you bought it up, that He will burn in hell with all the other "hypocrites" If he doesn't repent. Lets go with that..

Question: have you ever looked on a woman lustfully?
The bible tells us, if you look on a woman with lust in you're heart you have commuted adultery..Would that make you an adulterer?

Ever wished you had the same car as the fellow up the road, nice, shiny new truck maybe?
The bible tells us envy is a sin...

Ever taken a pen home from work? that would be Theft! and the bible tells us "do not steal"

Ever hated anybody? You have committed murder in your heart and in the eyes of God...

My personal favorite...

Judge not least YOU be judged and in the manor YOU judge, YOU WILL be Judged...

Jesus ate with tax collectors and prostitutes..
Food for thought..

I guess if you have done any of the above, that would make you one of the "hypocrites" you mentioned right?

Marty, I think in this day and age, its a sad state of affairs when gay people have to be in the closet. Gay, straight, black, white or brindle, people are people. An intelligent thinking person, looks at the heart, so stuff the haters and be happy!

Not necessarily. They're more, "We'll hate you within our rights now." More bark than bite. KKK is moreso about the white agenda, or things that they support, that benefits white-kind.

Hi CaZ. You will definitely be invited for some cocktails. I loved what you had to say.

Zoro: Please point to where in the Gospel of Jesus that THE man who died for all of our sins spoke ill of gay people?

If we're going solely by the book of Leviticus then we all have sinned. Here are some examples:

The book of Leviticus specifically talks about hair trimming, including the hair around the temples as being strictly forbidden in 19:27.

Or how about in Lev. 21:20, which states that one may not approach the altar of God if one has a defect in their sight. Oh boy, hope that could leave a lot of people out.

And then there's eating shellfish - this is considered to be an abomination according to Lev. 11:10. It later references eating pigs, or even touching pigs skin as also being an abomination.

Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. Wow! I had no idea. SCORE! Can I own a Canadian? I've always wanted to own my very own Canadian!

Moving on... It is a violation in Lev. 19:19 to plant two different crops in the same field, as well as wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (think cotton/polyester blend). According to these laws the punishment should be assembling the whole town together for a good old public stoning (Lev.24:10-16). Yee-HAW!

Shall I go on to the book of Exodus where they speak of fathers selling their daughters into slavery as an acceptable practice?

Seems that I am not the only one who needs repenting...

:-)
