They want to outlaw homosexuality?
They want to celebrate the Scopes Trial?

Let them outlaw homosexuality, mixed marriages, the teaching of evolution, and anything else they please.

When Rhea County has a population explosion of people who move there because of all that "moral legislation", we can slap a fence around it and declare it the Backwards Primitive Asshole Reservation. All the fundamentalists, homophobes, and creationists can live there while the rest of us Just Get On With It.
