Sorry to burst their bubble, but I've been to Eureka Springs (long before this homosexual coup d’état), and it was one of the gayest places I've ever been.

Just a small point of disagreement. This is the religious right, not the far right. There is a HUGE difference.

David, I assume you mean it as Travis defined it, "Gay, but not in the homosexual sense."

Michael, okay, but there's considerable overlap.
