Anti-Gay Marriage Rally in Asheville clashes with Gay Marriage Supporters Saturday

I thought it was quite odd that there were no publicly announced counter-protests for the Anti-Gay Rally the area churches had in Asheville today, since Asheville is nationally known to have quite a large gay population as well as many protesters. Until I saw this.....Police, gay rights advocates clash at rally sponsored by local churches. And saw the local news coverage. They came. They saw. They raised a little hell.

"A fracas erupted Saturday on City-County Plaza as a line of police officers attempted to separate gay protesters from a rally in support of a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriages."

"Several hundred people converged on the plaza to make their views known. Some came from area churches to hear ministers proclaim marriage to be a sacred bond between a man and woman, while others said homosexuals should have the same rights."

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
