Guns, Gays, God, Bars, and Barbecue




Wow, my last little post on the potential opposition to Tennessee's newest gun laws got some folks stirred up. Which, let's be honest, every blogger wants. Of course, now the question arises: How do you follow it up?

I was thinking maybe I'd ask: Which is the one true religion? Or maybe just: Which religion does God prefer?

But, nah. Too easy. How about: Should gay concealed-carry permit holders be allowed to carry guns into your church?

Nah. Too complicated. Might make some wingnuts tie their brains in knots trying to figure which is the greater evil: being gay or restricting gun rights.

I've got it: Which restaurant in Memphis has the BEST BARBECUED RIBS? The Flyer's cover story this week tackles that controversial subject, and there are a couple of surprising top-finishers. I'll be curious to see the reaction.
