JamesSavik Posted April 12, 2010 Report Share Posted April 12, 2010 The cameras are gone from Fulton, Mississippi- home of one of the big media prom dramas of 2010. Fulton, Mississippi is in Itawamba county and sits just a few miles off the Alabama border and is 12 miles from Tupelo, Mississippi. In addition to being the home town of Elvis is the home of Donald Wildmon's American Family Association. This conflict was a bit like taking a stick and knocking the crap out of a hornets nest. The results were predictable. Constance McMillen was disappointed and the school district acted despicably. You can be sure that this has been the topic of conversation of the AFA's members and the churches have been tanking up on hate. Now that the media is gone, we gay folk that live here have to cope with the angry hornets. Gay people are going to lose jobs. I've already lost a cable installation gig. Not that the economy doesn't suck in the best of times in Mississippi (number 50 with a bullet), it sure doesn't help when the churches are telling employers that the evil gay agenda is here and wants to molest their babies. Not that things are EVER gay-friendly, things are noticeably more gay-contemptuous. People with rainbows and Human Rights Campaign bumper stickers are getting pulled over and cops are sitting on gay bars waiting for patrons to leave. So what good did the media exposure do us? None at all. Everybody knew that Mississippi sucks. That's a given. What it did was get a lot of local gay activists to speak up and now they are facing retaliation. So thanks a lot for the media circus. It was fun while it lasted. It created a lot of false hopes and has the Christians on the war path... in a loving way to punish dirty faggots to make them come to Jesus and give up their evil hobbies. Here's an idea: the next time you want a gay media circus go to Alabama, Louisiana or Georgia. We've had ours for the decade. Quote Link to comment
