Forrester doubles down on “cesspool of sin” comments

NC Senator Jim Forrester – proud sponsor of the gay marriage ban in the General Assembly – doubled down on his Asheville is a “cesspool of sin” comments to M2M’s Barry Smith:

“They have a lot of very liberal people. They have a lot of homosexuals that live in the Asheville area.”

Forrester continued: “I think, it used to be you think of Wilmington with all the movie people down there would be the worst place in the state or Chapel Hill where they have a lot of liberal people and so forth. But Asheville is just doing a lot of things that I don’t like and I don’t think a lot of people in the Asheville area like.”

As a Chapel Hill native and longtime lover of Wilmington, I take it fairly personally that these two cities have now been added to the official Forrester “worst places in NC” list.  Wonder what’s next on his travelogue of hate?  Where might the homosexuals be hiding?  I’m sure not in Forrester’s stomping grounds of Gastonia or Stanley, but you never know.  I’ve heard tell they might have homosexuals in Raleigh too.  Stay tuned – I’m sure Forrester will let us know what towns all right-thinking North Carolinians need to be sure to avoid.  But what to do if it turns out nowhere is safe?
