Regarding same-sex marriage, Texas musician and politician Richard "Kinky" Friedman is credited with saying, "I support gay marriage. I believe they have a right to be as miserable as the rest of us." 'Nuff said..........

"They against the laws. Of god."

Sexually ill christardates who can't string a proper sentence together often think they live in a theocracy, but the problem is that they don't know what that word means.

You do have the right to be a bigot, however, until the day you die. Also your house of worship of hate may be bigoted. It will just be getting harder for people like you to actually discriminate against lgbt people in public.

No, everyone has misinterpreted his words! He said he supports gay marriage if a gay man wants to marry a lesbian woman! Gees! Get it right!

That makes about as much sense as -----if a STR8 man wants to marry a lesbian woman. Who put STUPID on his forehead? ROTFL!

Either you are an idiot, moron or 10 years old. The poster known as the comedian was making a joke of the gay marriage comments made by Lewisburg's mayor. So if you didn't understand the joke then the jokes on you, ignoramus !

If you really want to win get on the phone and start telling them to go vote tomorrow at Lewisburg City Hall. You must be a City resident. But start calling people and have them start calling people. Lewisburg needs change and the only way to beat there click and take our town back is to get residents out in the areas away from downtown. Work the phones tonight and make it happen. This would be a great last minute grass roots campaign to take the town back.
Politics as usual

Is that woman running against him a lesbian? And her running mate owns that health food store downtown. Damn hippie. Lol. Politics as usual. Somebody with a grudge against the mayor using this issue. Look around, the town is clean, the stores downtown are full, the snow gets plowed, and the tourists are spending their money. "Take back Lewisburg"? Yeah, you mean give it to a Realtor who hasn't even campaigned and even turned down a chance to debate the issues. I will vote for John Manchester because the town is doing pretty good.

The town is being run by morally bankrupt degenerates! And is a laughingstock because its citizens are too dim to even see what's going to happen. Take a look at Elkins!

Lol, there are more " morally bankrupt degenerates" on this topic board than there are in city hall. I call rumor spreaders, namecallers and mudslingers, like the self righteous posters above, are the real morally bankrupt ones. They hide in the shadows and throw bricks at shadows they make up in there own twisted minds.

“gay marriage” will bring about the ultimate demise of structural prerequisites for marriage (for example, as regards “plural unions” and adult incest) by making affection the ultimate trump card; increase the incidence of bisexuality and homosexuality in the population and thereby expose more young persons to their negative side-effects for health; and lead to the radical abridgement of the civil and religious liberties of our children, to the point of prosecuting any public expressions of misgivings regarding the active promotion of homosexual practice.
I bet you got this statistic from FOX NEWS!! Yea marriage as a whole is in demise because of GAYS!!!!...because straight people haven't fucked up the sanctity of marriage at all with cheating or divorcing or any of that!!!. Very easy to be a bigot and hide behind religion to state your hateful things. Such a small person to devote so much energy to something that doesn't affect your personal life at all! Go volunteer somewhere man, contribute to society. Your just another waste of space you straight hateful bigot. I hope you're sterile if hate for you to bring little hateful children into this world.

Hey "no teeth Jolene". I wonder if you inbreds even realize how much tourism and culture come through this town because of it's openness. People don't wanna fucking visit Rupert for it's bars....You wanna preach hateful rhetoric go live in a coal town. You are literally doing nothing to better this place but to populate it with your narrow mindedness and backwards inbred idiocity. I really hope the rainbow finds you and covers your heart with queer love and acceptance. Or smothers you to death. Either are acceptable to me!
