recently while on facebook i saw an ad for a place called the abyss that said it was opening in johnson city this fall. after viewing there page it appears the place is to be a haunted house but what troubles me and should trouble any good citizen is the place seems to promote things like "sex gore rock n roll" and "your souls tormentors" on their ads and flyers and had several devils markings on their page as well. please tell me us citizens will not allow something like this to go on in an area unprotested.

What do devils and gore have to do with haunted houses? Everyone knows that a good haunted house is made of rainbows and purple unicorns.
Are you sure that ad is current? Sounds like it might be an old one since its a little early to be advertising this annual tradition that citizens let come to our town, and pretty much most towns, every October. I personally do not like haunted houses, but I would see no reason to say, protest Fenders Farm bc they offer a haunted maze that some families enjoy together.
I think there is enough real evil in the tricities. If you want to protest evil, I will happily join you outside any of the area churches that preach hate from the pulpit, or businesses that prey on the poor & uneducated.

Freedom of religion. Not a Christian nation. Nobody protests your church. Please stop your crap before people do start protesting your church.

Concernedcitizen :
The Salem Witch Trials of 1692 has called & requested that you get back in the time machine you are hiding in your basement & come back to the exact time where you belong. Salem, Mass. needs your help with public hangings & to throw a few stones upon those who do not think in the oppressive way that you do. Be concerned with the issues of 2012, not those of 1692! Geez, I really hope this was a joke or troll looking for a response.
Progress please

Hmmm it seems to me that this nation was founded on freedom of relegion, I'm a Pagan and frankly I'm offended that Christians wanna bash us in the head when we aren't standing outside their church bashing them in the head when they come out of church on Sunday mornings. Stop trying to protect my sensibilities with your Christian values....I support The Abyss

Yeah, & I am sure they will care just as much as the rest of us! You probably go to Gatlinburg all of the time & I would bet that you have been in a couple of Haunted Houses there. Go Protest a Haunted House, and you consider those who don't think like you the Freaks? Let's keep this blog going, as it is good advertisement for the new & more than welcome Haunted House in Johnson City. I had no idea it was coming & now I just wanna get my tickets & support these do-gooders who offer us fun & recreation. Woo Hoo & thanks for heads up cave dwellers! Now seriously, go back to your caves because you're starting to become somewhat annoying.

Yeah, Madonna corrupted the youth of the 80's & now Lady Gaga is the new she-devil for this generation. Before that it was Marilyn Monroe & so forth & so on. Funny thing is, when people like this get older they are referred to as "Icons". Hmmmmmm, does it just take time for people to realize that they are being judgemental, self serving & small minded? NOPE, what these types of people (parents) do not understand is that you will push the masses & even your own children to go out & do as you say is bad. Nobody wants to think or be like you, so when you speak up & voice your opinion: you have such little respect that individuals will know to do exactly the opposite so they will not be like you. Keep bashing the Haunted House, it is good advertisement & will draw more ticket consumers ---------->YOU FREAK!

You are against the Haunted House because it is non Christian & corruption toward our Christian children huh? Well, you are the typical & hypocritical Christians that we all have learned to loath & that are pushing people away from your religion.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween#Christ...

Halloween (All Hallow's Eve) is indeed a Christian Feast & celebration!

Christian influences
Halloween is heavily influenced by the Christian holy days of All Saints' Day (also known as Hallowmas, All Hallows, and Hallowtide) and All Souls' Day.

All Hallows' Eve provided one last chance for the dead to gain vengeance on their enemies before moving onto the next world.[18] To avoid being recognised by a soul, Christians would wear masks and costumes to disguise themselves, following the lighted candles set by others to guide their travel for worship the next day.[18] Today, this practice has been perpetuated through children guising (trick or treating).[18]

There is nothing wrong with believing in something, but if you do believe: At LEAST know why you believe that way!

I don't think you have anything to worry about. This "Abyss" is totally bogus. They have gone so far as to make a color ad and a facebook page, however something just doesn't ring true about it. No one has asked the obvious question of why they are only using a facebook page and not a genuine website. Answer, because it's free. Secondly, why are they advertising a haunted attraction in March? Offering a chance to win tickets for sharing it on facebook in March. Doesn't sound like intelligent marketing to me. Sounds like a spam site used to collect Facebook names. What next? Are they going to advertise their bogus Christmas in lights attraction in March also? Absolutely brilliant marketing I say! Let's have a valid street address or website for this place so we can show that it is probably some 13 year old kid sitting in his room making all of this up. I call B.S. on this one. They have gotten Concernedcitizen riled up and ready to picket the place with no proof it even exists. They have to do better than some poorly done photoshop poster.
