Don't these 'religious' vermin have other things to do? Typical christians, always trying to force their bronze age superstition on normal people! This is one of the worst cases of xtian asshattery I have ever seen. No surprise that the far right lunatics of focus on the family are involved! You people need to run these vermin out of town on a rail and the sooner the better. Taking bingo away from seniors!! These fundietards have no shame!!

Why do you oppose the people speaking through their elected representatives setting the moral climate in the city in which they live?

Shall we force every American to live next door to a whore house simply because they are legal in Nevada? Or should everyone have a drug addict for a neighbor just because somewhere in America some drugs are legal?

I think it's very important to allow the local people to decide what they will accept in their communities and what they will not. If you don't like it, don't move to Bald Knob, Arkansas.

It was allowed but not forced. It's up to each community to decide for itself. Not that much different than alcohol sales. You do realize we have many dry counties in Arkansas, right? It's decided on a county by county basis. Same thing with bingo gambling. Each community is free to decide for itself.

OMG no I didn't realize there are dry counties in the state. Thank you so much for telling me. I don't know what I would do if you didn't point that out to me.

Just saw a video on Stephen Colbert show about the bingo in Bald Knob so sad not to let seniors play bingo. It is really quite harmless as the way it was being played and seemed a very good social activity in a small town for senior citizens. Hope the people enjoying that activity found something else to make them smile and socialize.

Sad when a few fundietards can control the lives of normal people. They are more like the taliban. They should tar and feather the 'rev' johnoson and run him out of town on a rail. He has made Bald Knob a laughingstock for the whole nation. Bingo leads to sex, meth, vandalism?? What a crock! Typical illiterate talibangelist! The Colbert report was hilarious. What a bunch of ignorant hillbillies!! Bald 'knob'?? What a name! The possibilitiesx are endless!

Hey moron if you want to live in a theocracy you need to move to another country. May I suggest Iran or Saudi Arabia! It is scum like you that is ruining this nation! Take your medieval superstition and shove it!! I hope a strip club opens next to your house idiot! How in the hell do you people reproduce and why are you allowed to in the first place?

I'm not a moron and I rather enjoy living in the constitutional republic we have here in America.

I find it shcoking that you and others get so bent out of shape by the elected representatives of the people of Bald Knob enacting a city ordinance. That's a republican form of government in action, hardly a theocracy. Do you understand the difference?

If you want to play bingo, don't move to Bald Knob, AR. It's as simple as that.
