All this stuff thats on these discussion boards are exactly what Edmonson County is made of. Gossip gossip gossip. You all wonder why people think the way they do. You all are the most narrowminded people, and think your way is the only way(Religion). Thats not how its suppose to be. Rip me if you want, I'll just sit back and laugh, but it's TRUE.

I love how people think that it is just Edmonson County that gossips around and stuff. Trust me, it's everywhere you go. Now who is narrow-minded?

Wow. You are entirely correct that there is gossip everywhere but you have to admit that it runs rampant in EC. Go Figure, I totally agree with you especially the comment about religion. Around here, if you aren't like everyone else then you aren't to be trusted and probably evil. That's the thing with small towns though... sad but true.

Even in the smallest towns, one has a choice of how to behave and whether or not to engage in gossip. I suggest #4, get an education and get a life.

I believe you asked a question as opposed to making an observation. I read the thread as I found the title interesting. I thought there might be some uplifting news. I am a former resident of the county. Best wishes and Merry Christmas.

Years ago, a dear friend who was a pastor was totally fed up with the gossipping that was going on in his congregation..........particul arly in the form of "prayer requests" at the various women's meetings so he gave a sermon on the sin or gossip and tale baring.

I was not a member of his church but asked for a tape of the sermon. This wise old man defined gossip as "any unneccessary, unedifying uncovering." That is quite a standard. I am afraid I fall short from time to time but do my best to think about what I say. Is it neccessary? Is it edifying? Do I really need to be uncovering the shortcomings of others? Something to think about, eh?

Merry Christmas to all!!!!!!

Actually the love of money is the root of all evil according to the Bible.

It was a rhetorical question...which means I didn't really expect an answer...which means it indeed was a veiled and sarcastic observation. Merry Christmas to you too!

Who cares what others think?? Really! Are you willing to let as you say "narrowminded" people make your choices for you! I have came from a big upset in this county, form a family that was probably on the tongues of many mouths, and I am sure in their sour mouths there was many bad things said about me. I know one person whom was my boss for years that wanted me fired when I was hired, because of "who my father was"! Well, I don't care what they think. Gossip away! For them, I have proved them wrong. I am strong, truthful, trustworthy, mighty (in my eyes because of all the obstacles and hurdles I have overcome), I am successful to my liking. I am in the center of town everyday, doing my wonderful job. I didn't have pull in this county, I came from the bottom of the pond the way most would percieve it, but here I am!

Point is, I have not let anyone take something form that wasn't theirs to take. I am who I am for me and my kids and husband. I have proved the majority of the "biggets" in the county wrong and when I see them I rub it in with a beaming smile! Gossip can ruin you if you let it, but you know, I am guilty, I am sure at times we are all guilty of it. I just think, don't give them too much to talk about. Sure no matter what you do you will always have those that stand on the sidelines to see you fail, but for all the dozen that want you to sink, it is the 1 or 2 that are ready to throw you a line that help you stand tall! Just my thoughts on gossip. Honestly, we all know this forum is about gossip, we are obviously wanting to hear what others are saying or we wouldn't even read it. Not everyone is going to like ya! Probably will meet more that don't if you speak your mind and are a strong willed person! Nevertheless, trying not to hit someone where it hurts in the weak spot, and we all have them.

Merry Christmas!

You make some very vallid points. I just don't understand why people go out of their way to say things that are untrue and hurtful. Have a great weekend.

True. Some folks in this county are narrow-minded. Some love to gossip. Some believe their way is the only way as far as religion goes. I am an open-minded person who is here by choice. If I wanted to live elsewhere I would. I choose to live here because there is an abundance of good churches and an abundance of good people. I believe there will be people from all religions in Heaven. I believe that being saved gets you to Heaven, not being Baptist, Presbyterian, Church of Christ, Catholic, Methodist, or anything else. I choose to live here because I believe there is less evil here. I believe God prefers us not to drink, do drugs, sleep around, gamble, gossip, curse, etc. If I could live in a place free from gossip, cursing, etc. I probably would. Edmonson County's not perfect, but I'm not perfect, either. Living here helps me get a little closer, though ;)
