Oh man Hicks try to BAN Gays  Reply with quote  

from foxnews.com
DAYTON, Tenn. — Rhea County (search) commissioners unanimously voted to ask state lawmakers to introduce legislation amending Tennessee's criminal code so the county can charge homosexuals (search) with crimes against nature.



"We need to keep them out of here," said Commissioner J.C. Fugate, who introduced the motion.

County Attorney Gary Fritts also was asked by Fugate to find the best way to enact a local law banning homosexuals from living in Rhea County. Commissioners asked Fritts to bring a resolutionced drinking alcohol and county zoning.

The Rhea County action came after the Senate Judiciary Committee (search) voted 7-1 Tuesday for a bill that would prohibit legal recognition of civil unions and domestic partnerships among homosexuals in Tennessee. Gay marriages already are prohibited in the state.

The state senator who represents Rhea County, Tommy Kilby, D-Wartburg, said Wednesday he hadn't seen the resolution and couldn't comment on it until he did.

"Yesterday in Judiciary Committee, they passed out a bill basically saying we will not recognize same-sex partnerships or civil unions from other states or foreign countries. I voted for that, and that's my position on that issue," Kilby said.

State Rep. Jim Vincent couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday.

Rhea County, about 30 miles north of Chattanooga, is among the most conservative in Tennessee. It holds an annual festival commemorating the 1925 trial that convicted John T. Scopes on charges of teaching evolution, a verdict thrown out by the Tennessee Supreme Court on a technicality. The trial later became the subject of the play and movie, "Inherit the Wind."

In 2002, a federal judge ruled unconstitutional the Rhea County school board's Bible Education Ministry, a class

Another winner from the county who brought us the Scopes Monkey Trial.

Hey Rhea County, the rest of the country already had a good laugh at your expense. Didn't you learn anything from that?

that's not how science works. when you lack proof of a thing's non-existance, you don't assume it exists. when you lack evidence of a thing's existance, you don't assume it does exist.

I don't need to prove something doesn't exist in order to not believe in it.

I mean I hope you have some pretty convincing evidence of the non-existance of pink flying unicorns with high school educations. Otherwise you look pretty stupid for not believing in them... right?

Oh I forgot... everybody else doesn't believe in them, so you don't have to... right?

The inherant problem with applying science to prove the existance of anything is its lag in time. Its bounded to the past tense.

Scientific analysis only gets you an approximation of what happened even under the best circumstances. The longer you wait and the more factors that are involved increases the margin of error exponentially.

Likewise you don't need to prove something does exist to believe it either.
