Putting Guilford County on the map

Looks like our very own Marcus Kindley may have really stepped in it this time with his particular brand of intolerance.  Just watch it grow.  First Matt hands it off to Pam’s House Blend, then Raw Story picks it up.  Where it will stop, only the AP knows. (hat tip to Sue)

What an embarassment.  Here’s how Pam depicts Guilford County to the world… “Cue up Dueling Banjos”.  Beautiful.

    I’ve said it so many times, this IS NOT GOOD FOR GREENSBORO (or Guilford County). We have Marcus Kindley alone to “thank” for this negative press. It’s on him.

    What a horrible thing to say. I have a number of friends who are gay and in long-term commited relationships, despite people like this condemning their very existence. I agree that this is bad for Greensboro and Guilford County but at the same time it’s time people understand that some folks feel this way and they need to understand there are consequences for making such bizarre and thoroughly disgusting statements. We were just talking about this subject at church on Sunday (yes some Christians and Baptists realize that God loves gay people just like he loves everyone else) and several of our gay members stated point blank that there was no way they would have “chosen the gay lifestyle” given the way gays and lesbians are scorned by so many people. They’ve merely accepted who they are and have worked to live their lives like anyone else. These folks are some of the most caring and dedicated Christians I know and I’m proud to share my church (and religion) with them. If more people felt like we do, maybe we could move on to more important things like feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, housing the homeless, promoting peace among everyone, etc.

    [...] I’ve read several comments on the embarrassment this brings to Guilford County. It seems to me that the status quo will only lead to more. The Chairman must be replaced to have any expectation of change. [...]
