What To Do About the Homosexual in Bristol?

I have heard that this should be a good event. They could use a few friendly faces.

February 14: A Christian Response to Homosexuality

Beverly Robinette, United Methodist Minster, Associate Chaplain, Emory & Henry College

Today the issue of homosexuality is at the center of major spiritual and political rifts within Christianity, with communities of faith often split in their responses to homosexuality. Join the Reverend Beverly Robinette, United Methodist Minister and Associate Chaplain at Emory & Henry College, for an open and frank discussion on Christian faith and homosexuality. The talk will take place on Thursday, February 14, at 5:30 p.m. at Sells Hall 108, on the King College campus in Bristol, Tennessee. The event is sponsored by King World Awareness and Activation Campaign (KWAAC), and it is free and open to the public. For more information, call KWAAC on 1-828-964-3071.


  1. At least someone's talking about it. There has been violence against gays in Bristol and these issues should be aired out. The only cure for ignorance is education.

    There's an interesting twist to it in this town though. Believe me when I tell ya, some of those that will show up to rant and rave about "The Gay" are some of this town's most closeted homosexuals.
    There are several Mark Foley's and Larry Craig's in this town.
    If I could only name names.... ;)

    Regardless, I may just go to see who shows up to proselytize for the church of exclusion. Should be fun.

  2. I wish I could go, but I have to work. I can't think of a better way to commemorate Valentine's day than to go with my sweetie to support other who just want to be themselves.
