Tools, Minus the Sharp

Posted by on August 7 at 15:51 PM

From the great state of Tennessee:

Voters in Rhea County have elected five new people to the County Commission and say a short-lived request for a ban on homosexualty was only one issue in the change.

People who live in the Dayton area say overcrowded schools and how the county is handling growth also drove the election on Thursday.

Wait… the County Commission didn’t really vote to ban homosexuality, did it?

In March 2004, commission members voted unanimously voted to ask state lawmakers to introduce legislation amending Tennessee’s criminal code so the county could charge homosexuals with crimes against nature.

Wow. That has to be the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard — oh, wait:

Two days later, they rescinded the vote, saying they didn’t understand they were voting to ban homosexuality in the county.

You didn't hear about that? It was a bit of a flap at the time, before everyone in Tennessee realized how incredibly stupid they were being and went back under the radar.

Christians won't let gays get married. Jews won't let their daughters marry gentiles. Christians don't believe evolution, Jews won't eat pork and beans. All religious people are idiots. We need to keep ALL religions out of our government.

Uh, Brad? I went to Rhea County to" target="_blank">write about that. I think I submitted the receipts to you, my friend.

I didn't bring you a Rhea Gay Day t-shirt, though. Sorry.

Praise his name! Praise his name!

Hey, Christians, you have to learn to be nicer to gays because your oh so holy god is..........GAY! Yes Jesus is gay. I mean just look at him. He has long blonde hair and wears a tunic which looks a lot like a dress. Why was there never a Mrs. Christ. Finally, who did he chose to eat his last supper with hmmmm? A large group of men. I know this because I have a rare copy of the King Ezekial Bible which has a chapter where Jesus was tongue kissing Noah.
