Re: “Harding responds on blocking gay website

yes, flaunting being gay is so pesky, aint it capt boosh. i mean, i try not to flaunt my straightness but the kids, the husband, the legal marriage, the 1183 federal rights that i have that gay folks dont..its hard to hide. saying that people flaunt being gay is so...tacky. i mean, i know many christians...and they are ok. as long as they dont flaunt it in my face all teh time..i mean, geez!

Re: “Harding responds on blocking gay website

y'all do realize that you can be christian (religious...whatever you want to call it) and identify as LGBTQ, right? And that it isnt a choice between your faith and your sexual identify or gender identity, right? And that there are only 11 admonishments to homosexuals in teh bible but something like 200 to heterosexuals? yes? and that these students were most likely raised in the church, followed their heart to go to harding (which is a great school) and then got to the point where they couldnt hide their sexuality (and they shouldnt have to..), right? i mean, you guys do get this? i agree with oulier on this. its not chrisitan bashing. i am a straight christian lgbtq equality activist. its the hypocritical, bigoted statements. and its sad that this is the stuff that arkansas is known for. the mccances and now harding. lovely. we can do better. we MUST do better. as a state, we owe it to our kids to do better. this bullying, this hate, that extends to the upper reaches of higher education, all the way down to elementary schools...state government, etc., its gotta stop. really. its ok to be gay. its ok to be queer, trans, bi, lesbian. its ok to be chrisitan or atheist or multitheist or even unitarian universalist (disclaimer, i'm a UU :) just be nice to each other. its basic.

Re: “Alien enrollment at Ark. colleges overstated

geeeez! could you stop describing him as from west fork??? i mean, sure he lives here, owns a business here but he represents district 87 (and I am pretty sure harris is from mars, or some other planet...). West fork is a good town. We arent fancy, but we are nice. Or does our claim as hometown of Will Phillips negate any bad vibes Harris would bring to us? :)

Re: “GOP hypocrite: Takes state cash AND undocumented

dont get me started on Harris. I live in west fork. I have seen this guy go further and further off the deep end for the last few years. sigh...just nutty. like the time he accused his opponent in the election of breaking into his house. or the weird disjointed articles he writes in the local west fork paper. oh, and how about how he employs his mother in law as a cook at the preschool? or the 'god clause' for the preschool? so many crazy things to mention, so little space :)
