This town holds some of the worst people you will ever meet in your entire life.

It claims to be Christian and family-friendly, but the people here are terrible. Malicious gossip is a regular thing. Someone will smile to your face and then say something nasty when you turn to walk away and laugh about it. Teenagers and adults alike.

I am leaving here and I strongly discourage anyone from ever moving here.

Do yourself a favor and move to Normal instead.

I was talking about Morton, but I will be sure to avoid Creve Coeur, too.

I made this original post due to commmunity mobbing against me. Someone had sexually victimized me with his friends when we worked together and I reported it. Years of harassment and slander have followed from that, mostly from people who have never actually held a conversation with me.

However, recently I have found some awesome support from people within the Morton community who have stepped up and shown me kindness and compassion. The Morton community has shown me that they are the type of people who step up and support someone in need, even when it is their own causing the suffering.

I am extremely grateful to these individuals for their actions of support and kindness. I am sorry for making a post bashing Morton. I just hadnít found the good people here yet.

It is most definitely not a nice place. I stand by my original comments. I thought it was until I moved away and found an actual nice place where people show respect and compassion.

Morton is the typical bigoted small-town with terrible police and rampant gossip and harassment towards those who are different.

I have never been happier since leaving that place and relocating to my new city.
