Maybe I am close minded but it looks like yours opened so far your brains fell out. Nobody is talking about you can't hold hands there dummy, all I am saying is don't try to teach my kids that its OK to be gay, because its not. And don't try to force your views into my church my family or my business because its not going to happen. If you do you will find that this can be a very hostile place.<quoted text>
I am about to be a new resident of Ozark, AL and I was researching the area in hopes that I won't have to fight to be ME! You have just made me realize that there will be no chance of me being happy and a bigger chance of harassment by coming there. It's closed minded individuals like yourself that make it hard for people to just enjoy the little bit of life they are going to live. 70+ years isn't really that long to live. Enjoy it while you can, and if that means enjoying your church AND relationship, so be it.
Doesn't it say in your bible: Judge not lest ye be judged" ??
You, sir, are judging where judging is not needed.
I am open to other people's thoughts, feelings, religions and a plethora of diversities.
Why can't I hold hands with my partner, but you can with your wife?
it's only fair.:P

I am a gay professional who does business in Alabama from time to time. I am not "openly or overtly gay" when I visit places like Birmingham. I believe that some day Alabama will become more tolerant of others. I respect one's right to freedom of religion and the ability to practice what one believes. What I don't understand is using those beliefs to restrict the way that other's wish to live their personal lives and relationships with one another. Similar to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960's, I believe that progress will be made once the rest of the country assists Alabama with becoming a more civilized society protecting the rights and freedoms of all. That includes such basic rights as in the right to marry and live one's life in a decent manner.
I am deeply encouraged by how much progress is being made already in society regarding LGBT rights and acceptance. It will likely take Alabama a while to learn from its troubled history and not repeat the mistakes of its past when it restricted the basic freedoms of many of its citizens due to ignorance and fear.
