As a native Oregonian I hope not, but I suppose there are zealots & idiots everywhere .... I wish you luck and hope you enjoy your new life here. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings, cool weather, and lack of crowds! Welcome.

Oh, and if it does get unbearable...trying heading south to Bandon or Port Orford. Smaller towns but generally more tolerant & open-minded (IMHO). Nice coffee houses and the beaches are amazing .... especially if you want to kiteboard, windsurf, or surf.

Default Oh my god NO

Are you KIDDING? That is, like most towns on the oregon coast, a red neck washed out nightmare. I've been everywhere. For some reason, people think that Oregon beach towns are going to be like California and they ARE NOT. DEFinitely go check it out before moving all your ****. REally.

humm...gee, and I thought myself, and the other posters who actually do live here would know better and more about our community than someone who lives elsewhere. Not to mention, from looking at your other posts, youre awfully negative about Oregon.
the only postive part of your post that I fully agree with is to check it out before you move. Thats something that I, and others, try to stress is very important, no matter if youre moving to Oregon, or Maine. You SHOULD always visit before making a concrete decision.
And btw, I like my town, and most people who live here. I dont think it is a "red neck washed out nightmare"

..... and exactly why I live here!

I'm a lumber mill worker's daughter & raised on the backdoor of 3 mills in S. Oregon ... but I'm more liberal that most everyone I know from California. I guess I'm a liberal redneck.

Smile Gay friendly?

Hey SDMikey! Consider Lincoln City, a little north. Our city recognizes a man of the year, woman of the year, and a couple of the year for their civic contributions. A year or so ago, our couple of the year was gay. I'm proud to be a member of a community that recognizes people for who they are and welcomes diversity!

One- Care to rephrase your "Red State" comment in light of the last elections when your House speaker was nearly unseated in her own district, and Ron Saxton was sent packing? Heck your red staters can hardly get a dog-catcher elected in Oregon.

Two- It is true that some of life's best lessons are learned in elementary school- such as sharing, tolerance, caring for others.

three- if you are so into freedom why dont you practice a little live and let live.

That said, having lived in "The Coos" I would say that you might face some uncomfortable moments as a gay person there, but I bet after a year or so, you will find places you like and fit in. There are a lot of nice people there.

ouch! Yes we are now further away from Red. I like to be optimistic, is that a crime. I did like that Gov. Kulong. is promoting a biofuel self-sufficiency agenda, hopefully he can get it done. As for the rest? We'll see.
I share more than most, what does tolerance mean to you? some use it in exchange for acceptance, I care for everyone, I just don't agree with certain behaviours as being productive and healthy (spiritually and physically). If I didn't care then I would go blindly into the darkness with those that choose a path to destruction.
Where don't I practice freedom? Just because I have an opinion doesn't mean that people are not able to be free, they express their free speech and I mine.

godspeed Brett.

You live your life "freedom" and let that nice couple live theirs, and me live mine. How you live (within the bounds of not harming others) is none of my concern, and how I live (same boundries) is none of yours. That couple are harming none by loving one another. Some of us believe that the darkness of which you speak, only exists if you believe let it grow in your heart.

Hey with Karen Minis out of the speakers chair maybe we will have civil unions (which the majority of people support) by the end of the legislative session!

I have no control or need to bother that nice couple, but that doesn't change my POV on Homosexuality as an abomination. You know what, so is rape, incest, hatred, adultry, murder, assault, beastiality. I can speak my mind on adultry being wrong and most will agree, but same sex marriage- shut me up and put me in a box.
By the way no one thinks a man loving another man is wrong, its the anal sex part.
SEX IS NOT LOVE>>>>>>
