Lady, you are truly disturbed and paranoid! This guy "local" has nothing to do with me! I dont know him and until today while reading this, never heard of his screenname. I find it funny that you as a local business person who relies on Kings Park Business is so vitriolic concerning the opinions of others. I just showed my wife and father this thread and they were amazed, great way of alienating about half this town. That Catholic Church down on Chruch Street has the same canon/policies that I supported in the thread you guys are speaking of, are all those Catholics who believe the Boys Scouts shouldnt be forced to accept homosexuals, "discriminatory and hateful" too? I love your view "tolerance" - "My way or the highway!" LOL
