Even if he was openly gay, why did the sun have to mention that. Did they mention that other politicians were openly heterosexual?. I don't know him personally & I don't recall him ever mentioning that he was, don't really care. I just don't know why it was mentioned as if it was going to make a difference on how he does his job

I have to agree, what the hell difference does it make. I assure you there are lots of public figures out there still in the closet. This is reason #416 why I don't subscribe to that bird cage liner.

Seem to recall a sheriff in Greene County who was openly Gay, don't remember the Sun ever mentioning it but everyone knew it and he didn't try to hide it. Did the Sun really go back and research all the aldermen who have served in Greeneville to see if they were openly Gay, don't think so. Daryl Bryan is gone, Brian has to be an improvement.
The key word here is "openly."

I care if he is gay or not. I will never vote for a gay person for ANY office.

A person cannot help being retarded, in most cases.
A person cannot help being gay, or lesbian, or black.
A person CAN refuse to be a homophobic idiot, however.
It is a shame that you don't resist being that way.
How do you know that if a person is born with a strong attraction to the opposite sex, that he is not also born with a strong aversion to people who are attracted to their same sex? Maybe what you call homophobes are born that way. Would you want them to be in conflict with their natural proclivities?

You obviously haven't looked at his Facebook page. It clearly states MARRIED TO ROBBIE WILLIAM FOSHIE BRAGDON. Brian's middle or maiden name is shown as FOSHIE on there as well.

Now tell me how is it erroneous and inflammatory?

<quoted text>You certainly do not know much about our forefathers, we are very Victorian compared to their sexual escapades. To start you on your education why not read a little about Jefferson, Paine and Franklin. Just a little tidbit to get you started, Jefferson had sex and children by his wife's sister who happened to be half Black, that is of course Race not Color. And don't even try to quote scripture, those guys did it with their daughters, sisters whoever was available at the time the need arose.
Wow someone who reads history, refreshing. You are so correct, especially about Franklin, he would absolutely screw anything. The dude loved to get his orgy on too. The founders were just like us; human.
what a joke

Yea Brian and his queenie "husband" are trash. They proclaim this n that about being married and they screw anything and everything that'll let em. They're always looking for guys to come over. Why make such a big show about gay marriage when you're not faithful to one another? They give gays such a bad name. Nasty old queens!

If Paxton and Bragdon are on one side and Hawk and Wexler are on the other then that puts Daniels in the middle and should make for a nice little Greeneville Sandwich, perhaps a chipped ham sandwich, utterly delicious.
Hawk and Webster, not Wexler. Don't worry, W.T. will always cast the deciding vote by voting with Hawk and Webster.

The Liberals and Gays will continue to take over our country. My friends, does this really surprise you?

We ARE in the End Times.

Soon we will be ruled by nothing but Liberals and Gays, who await their Antichrist.

While I agree, who cares if he is gay, isn't this what the gay community usually pushes for? Just like the NBA player who flames all over the news. I don't think it is a Fox News thing at all, mainstream media runs with these stories. And I thought Brian was openly gay. He is married and has pics of him and his partner on FB. I would have assumed he didn't try to hide the fact he is gay. And like I said, I agree, lame story, but right in line with the huge stories that are made at the national level and ran on every news program out there (not just Fox News)....

Anyone else noticed this rag keeps shrinking in size? Pretty soon we will need magnifiers to read the thing.

Not that we'd miss much if we couldn't read it!
