Tennessee Acting Out Again

Recently, some folks in Rhea County Tennessee tried banning gays from their town.

Now a garden center in Hartsville has covered up statues with two-piece sarongs after receiving complaints about their nudity.

Earlier this month, a bar in Nashville blacked out all of the Victorian-era nudes which had graced its menu for years after the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission decided one of the pictures was too racy.

You may also remember the story about the Tennesee court telling a gay father to stay in the closet around his own son.

I tell yah: I've lived in North Carolina and South Carolina, and I'm starting to find 'em more and more tolerant compared to Tennessee all the time.
