Just wondering is being openly gay in Greeneville is ok and accepted? Like out in public? We've been living in Johnson city since we've moved here few years ago but due to jobs moving we're moving, just curious if we need to worry

No one likes any 2 people all over each other in public doesn't matter man on woman, man on man, or woman on woman. But if you are being sinceable about it like hold hands and not all over each other I don't think people should have a problem with it. The way I see it is love is love no matter what. If your into the club scene try out the hype

Another troll starting a thread to get the gay bashers going. No gay person would have to ask if it was ok to be openly gay in a small east TN town. Is it ok for a black man to go to a klan rally?

The robes will keep you covered.

As far as homosexuality goes, DIDN'T ASK! DON'T TELL! People wouldn't have near as much animosity and hate towards the homosexual culture, if they didn't feel the need to rub it in societies face and expect everyone to be OK with it. Put your rainbow shirts and rainbow flags away. We heterosexuals do not advertise our sexual preference, neither should you! This isn't southern culture or bigotry, it is called DECENCY.

At the very least it would be considered libel. The statement made wasn't really anything else than a jab at the establishment. There was no lie, no crime, and nothing to permit a class C felony. Call it how you see it, not how you feel.

There is a HUGE different in being homophobic, and just not tolerating the act. I think people get that confused, or simply like to exploit that word in order to make those who don't embrace homosexuality... ignorant of culture and life. <--- HAHA

I don't like the picture of 2 men or women kissing and groping in front of my very young son. His mind is like a sponge, and I want to keep that grime out of it. Does this make me a homophobic person? Nope. There is no irrational fear there. It is all too real. The more my son sees that, the more he views it as an option for acceptance, or it simply confuses him.

This plays out exactly like the violence in games, tv, and music. If parents are not there to censor what the youth has access to, well we all know of a 5yr old that knows more curse words than any high school student. My son doesn't see a man and woman having relations of any kind that is not socially acceptable. I'll be damned if it happens in public because the homosexual culture feels they need display this, in order to have EVERYONE ACCEPT THEM. You will hear my "homophobic" thoughts then, loud and clear.

The original poster asked about "being openly gay".

Why do people automatically assume "being openly gay" means the same exact thing as wanting to make out in public or stripping naked and having sexual intercourse in front of children?

Just because somebody is a homosexual does not mean they are compulsively hypersexed, that they think about nothing but sex round the clock, or that they are sending pictures of their pee pees over the internet.

Most gay people act normal, hold jobs and look just like you.

You want to know what "being openly gay" really means?

A lot of times a man just wants to refer to "his husband" or "his boyfriend" in friendly conversation without fear of being tied to the back of Bubba's pickup truck and dragged down the road.

Maybe it offends people that a gay man or woman would actually desire to openly and honestly talk about their life or their partner, much the same way straight people would, in polite conversation, talk about their background or refer to members of their own family: their spouse, their son or daughter.

How many times have you been at work or at the store and you have talked openly about your spouse, your parents, or your children? How many times have you met friends in public and they have asked about your family members? Do you take pride in talking with coworkers about what your spouse or children have accomplished?

Well, now imagine you can't talk about your family members in public because you are gay and your spouse is of the same sex. Or maybe your child is gay and they have a same sex partner, and so you can't talk about it because you live here in Greeneville.

The only reason why it may seem to you as though gay people are constantly rubbing their self-important gayness in your face is because they are trying to connect to people who have no empathy. Obviously if you have no empathy and cannot see thru their eyes, you are not going to be able to understand what everyday life is like for them.

nice sermon but i cant agree with all of it. unfortunately gays of both genders tend to be flamboyant about it more often than necessary. gay women tend to be more "butch" than most men find the need to be. gay men, in many cases, display giddy femininity far beyond that of any female save the occasional 12 year old girl. often these mannerisms are likely designed to gain attention but , i believe, in many instances it is a display of defiance. an open demonstration of derision for the social "standard". perhaps a response to an awkward or unpopular childhood. while being truely gay may sometimes be a matter of birth, i believe, there are many more "gays" than that condition applies to.

No it is not. People here are homophobes. All the gays in town, and there are more than anyone will admit, are closeted.

"flamboyant" is an understatement with many. Some need to turn it down a tad then maybe they wouldn't receive the negative attention that they complain about.

i don't remember anything about any peter puffers getting beat up, shot, or anything else in greeneville for puffing peters. sure people might not like what they do, but still no violence towards them. personally i don't give a shit what you do as long as you leave me alone with it. i'm not going to be an ass to try to hurt someones feelings just because i see two gay men together. it's not my business. be open, puff on them if you want. your a tax payer & you have the same rights as everyone else.

Obviously if you have no empathy and cannot see thru their eyes, you are not going to be able to understand what everyday life is like for them.
If you have to question if your actions in public are "OK", then question what you are doing in public. It is 2013 and the gay community has been and is being spoken for in a very obnoxious and loud voice. Point being, I don't want to explain to a child what homosexuality entails, and why I am against it, before that child is ready to know. At that point, he will also be mature enough to understand why his parents do not condone it. Public displays of homosexuality should be limited to civilized support for a "rights movement".

I may be wrong (to some) for thinking this way... But, homosexuality is nothing more than hedonism at it's finest. I am sure there are couples who are very good people. They stand up for what is right and DO lead decent lives. But, would they be together in homosexuality now.... if it were not so accommodating to scorn people?
