Truly, part of Chattanooga's charm and warmth comes, in part, from the love and Christian ideals of much of its population. But the ire being expressed here speaks more to the negative elitist side of our Christian communities than anything that would make Chattanooga a nice place to live. If you wonder why the magazine cited conservatism as a negative, just look at how kind, forgiving, and loving our Christian communities can not be. Both to each other and outsiders. Look at your own words. Nothing the first couple of posters have said contradicts the point made in the article. In fact, it proves it. Best thing about Chattanooga? The people. Worst thing about Chattanooga? The people.
