Well Salley, there have been several kinds of posts. Which ones do you think He would disagree with??

Would He take the part of the young boy who is living the life He created for him,

Or would He back up the haters who would tear down this young man and the people who were involved in writing about him??

All these people going by the views on homosexuality in Leviticus are probably the same ones chowing down on sausage and biscuits in Cracker Barrel after "Sunday-go-to-meetin.' " According to the same Leviticus, you guys are in BIG trouble.
the truth is that there's absolutely nothing in the book of leviticus which speaks to the subject of homosexuality.

Two things I'll clear up for you:
1. I am not looking for a date;
2. This is not the KNS chat room. This is L.C. Topix - a site which aggregates local stories from mutiple sources.

I just don't understand why the Gay Mom won't answer such an easy and simple question:

Bull dyke or heifer? Which role do you play?

Usually when people have PRIDE in something they are happy to talk about it.

You don't suppose she's, like, actually ASHAMED and just faking the pride, do you?

Come on Gay Mom! Tell everyone what you do which you're so proud of.

do you actually have anything nice to say, or are you only here to try to hurt people? i would imagine that if you actually were to ask a question worth answering she's be more than happy to respond.

do you know mom well enough to ask stupid questions about 'bull dykes'?

My complaint is with the source article. TOO MANY times I click the link and go to an article like this one, and despite looing on the webpage, too many articles LIKE THIS ONE give NO INDICATION AT ALL as to where this is. And then later I find out it's in Great Britain, Canada, or some other godforsaken country nobody ever heard of or cares about anyway !

So WHERE did this happen if anybody knows, and how do you know where it happened ???

How well do you need to know someone, to get them to talk about something they claim they are "proud" of?

I just don't understand why she won't answer.

The headline tells you it is Lenoir City.
The Full Story link says Knoxville News Sentinel.

Lenoir City and Knoxville are cities in Tennessee.
Tennessee is in the United States, south of Kentucky, east of Arkansas, and north of Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. The far eastern part is between Virginia and North Carolina.
