North Carolina Hates The Gays! Well, Let's Look At Their Culture

The good people of North Carolina just voted against same-sex marriage, leading me to think they're a bunch of heathen cretins with no taste or style.

But a glance at Wikipedia proves they have a rich and vital culture.

They've birthed a lot of big jazz musicians plus James Taylor.

Also, North Carolina is the home of more American Idol finalists than any other state. Clay Aiken, Fantasia Barrino, Kellie Pickler, Bucky Convington, Anoop Desai, and Scotty McCreery all hail from there.

They've spawned metal and punk acts like Killwhitneydead, Between the Buried and Me, and Nightmare Sonata.

What's more, SouthPark Mall in Charlotte is currently the largest in the Carolinas and Tennessee, with almost 2.0 million square feet.

And "a state culinary staple of North Carolina is pork barbecue."

So don't say North Carolina is nothing more than a bunch of heathen cretins.

All right, do!

Well then I guess no more gays visiting Biltmore House, and if you have a couple of bucks, get your furniture from somewhere else. Sorry Pottery Barn and Mitchell Gold, those hateful hets don't deserve our hard earned cash.

Just want to say that I'm in Charlotte and I voted AGAINST. I am so disappointed and disgusted. This amendment is horrible for the homosexual community, horrible for heterosexual couples that aren't married, horrible for elderly and will have horrible ramifications for the innocent children of these couples. It was a huge step backwards. I'm so sorry it passed!

Let's see now... how many times did the fine citizens of Mayberry and Mount Pilot send Jesse Helms back to the senate?  Why, I'm sure even Sheriff Andy Taylor and Aunt Bee can overlook the fact that while Gomer joined the Marines, they are mightily sorrowful that he finally was allowed to come out of the closet!  "Just a good thing he can't get married!" observed Floyd the Barber, who -- along with Howard the boring (also a bachelor) town city accountant -- fought strongly against giving "them homo-sect-uals" the civil right to marry.  Howard or Sheriff Andy Taylor would have to perform the ceremonies!  Oh, no!  "Sarah, give me the headquarters for the National Organization for Marriage.... [a beat] ... Oh, you mean you have to call Salt Lake City?  The MORMONS?!  But, Sarah, we don't have any Mormons in Mayberry.  Maybe in Mount Pilot, because that's a Big City, ya'know."

South Carolina's even worse. That's where they had the Heritage theme park!

Actually, what they did was indefensible, HOWEVER, it was nothing more than a misinformation campaign that was a proving ground for larger issues to come. You watch: while the world sat back and allowed the right -wing to mislead these people, at least ten more intitiatives will come up.

This is all one big effort on the part of the right to decentralize power in the US. And it's coming to a state near you. Let ye who is without propaganda, cast the first hayseed.

Ugh.  People like to say North is the more progressive than South (Carolina), because of all the northern transplants.  Obviously not.

I have been there and it is the most sickening bunch of know-nothing yahoos in America, except for Alaska.

Right.  Think of all those elderly couples who live together without marriage for tax and social security reasons.

And the closeted anti-gay US Senatrix, Lindsey Graham, who wants to start wars with every other country in the Middle East!
