I lived in Portland, Oregon for two years and I was always having a good laugh when I saw Portland's "Celebrate Diversity" stickers. IMO if you really have a place that is diverse you won't need to advertise it, everyone will simply know. When I left Portland I stopped in Casper, Wyoming for a couple of days. I thought it very amusing that Casper is very, very white and also named CASPER. Casper isn't big by any means, but OMG it is very white and has that name to boot.

True. But Rocky Anderson was about as liberal a mayor as one would expect to find anywhere in Cali or the East Coast.

May not be very well known.... But it's VERY white and VERY conservative


Other good ones are:
Louisville
Nashville
Oklahoma City
Tulsa, OK
Des moines, iowa
Minneapolis/st. paul
Indianapolis
Austin
Plano, Texas
Pittsburgh
Arlington, TX


Basically any city/town in the interior upland south (Kentucky, west virginia, and portions of arkansas and Tennessee) , as well as the great plains region (the dakotas, kansas, nebraska, iowa, minnesota, oklahoma)
I would say this list is half wrong.

Des Moines is very gay friendly. I grew up there. Despite being in a rural state, the attitude of people in Des Moines is that treating gay people just like everyone else is "cool". If you chastised gays for behaving in public like any straight couple does, you would quickly be labeled "uncool".

Same with The Twin Cities, Indianapolis, Austin, and Pittsburgh.

I have experience with rural Iowa and rural Nebraska and Kansas as well, even in the small towns, treating gays differently is looked down upon by the general population. They may be majority white, but that is about it. Heck, almost all the millennials I know from those regions are either atheists or very loosely Christian.

Nobody votes libertarian because of the stranglehold the two party system has on elections, but in the midwest people tend to act very libertarian and live their lives in a very live and let live manor. They may vote conservative because they don't want liberals to win, but they don't base how they treat other people on conservative values.

I can see where you are coming from with the Texas, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Tennessee suggestions, but if the OP is looking for more bigoted/condemning populations, he probably needs to stick to the more rural regions of even those states.

In almost every single city of 80k+ people, a majority are going to believe that gays should be treated like straights, and a majority is going to believe in evolution. That is part of living in a highly developed nation, people believe in the scientific process, very few believe in things without proper, provable evidence supporting them.

Yes, it is my hope that modern people would believe in science, slightly at least.

Its more diverse here than you think, we have a large black population and growing numbers of Latinos, Asians and Middle Eastern people. Its not as white as cities like Salt Lake City and Boise.

"Liberal" doesn't even begin to describe Rocky. I consider myself to be a liberal, but Rocky was just a flat-out embarrassment to mankind.

He never said anything about homosexuality--negative or positive. Don't be a hypocrite. If he threw out the OT rules, then homosexuality should apply as well.

What the OP wants doesn't exist in this country.

He wants a large city where people are predominantly prejudiced against gay people, predominantly do not believe in evolution. and predominantly white. The only places like that in this country are small towns usually in the south.

Heck, I do not know of a large city in the modern world that fits that criteria. Most people in large cities in modern countries refuse to ignore science and be bigoted towards gays. Large cities in modern countries also tend to be very multicultural.

I don't think he mentioned evolution either. All Christians can (and should) believe in evolution. It is one of the most ingenious and wondrous aspects of God's design.
