Are there any good places to go hang out and/or meet people? I'm not looking for a relationship as I'm in one I'm just looking for a place to go and socialize, have lunch whatever and not have to deal with an excessive amount of jerks. If there isn't would anyone be interested in starting a group w/me. Details of anything would be discussed in a private setting not over Topix. I just don't want any redneck as***** starting anything.

OMG! Yes, churches have groups for lesbians and gay men. They try to teach them the way of the bible. Which is Adam and Eve.... Not Adam and Steve!

There sure is. You know those weird places in the Bible about eating dung (like Ezekiel 4:12-13 and II Kings 18:27)? Those dung eaters were Biblical rednecks.
Our rednecks of today no longer eat dung; instead, they listen to Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly, an equivalent practice that is perhaps even more unhealthy.

I thought it strange for a Baptist church to have that however everything about Arkansas seems to be strange so I thought I would ask. So there is nothing here for someone to meet, greet and socialize? Not that I'm surprised I guess I was just hoping that something good would happen in this desolete hell. Thanks anyway.

All the lesbians and gay men that I know go to the same places as everyone else to socialize. They have no other choices, so they simply get in where they fit in. I know a lot of lesbians that redneck men think are straight! Oh, and many rednecks are very conservative republicans. They believe in preserving conservative family values and rising against anything that threatens their way of life.

There is NO group for gays/lesbians at Central Baptist that allows them to be in the church in a formal group setting and living a lifestyle such as that.Against Biblical doctrine.They are welcome to come to church there however.There's just not a "group" for them to hang out in that is church sanctioned.Unless it would be the Celebrate Recovery group for those coming out of lifestyles such as drug use,addictions,ect.

*I can believe that no Baptist Church would not open it's doors to something they would conceive to be wrong or what they think is wrong according to their warped interpretation of the bible.
Against Biblical doctrine.
*Only for those who choose to interpret to whatever suits them best.
They are welcome to come to church there however.
*As if I would walk into a place that sanctions judgemental behavior, bigotry and is full of self righteous vindictive people.

Thank you for letting me know that Central Baptist is not a true church with true believers only another mass of sheep following one another just because.......

Let me try this again as my other comments got mixed in w/the original post and didn't show up.

Thanks for the honest post, that is what I have been doing so far. As far as conservatives - yes it seems to be pretty bad here. I thought Georgia was bad until I got here.
