Maybe we should have just let the South secede so they could have their own little theocratic obese-ridden shit show.
Maybe we should have told Sherman not to stop burning at Atlanta.
Five stars for evil.
The south isn't 100% bad and it's not like racism only exists in the southeastern US. There are ignorant nuts all over flyover country. Remember touchdown Jesus was in Ohio. Remember TBN is stationed out of California. Ted Haggard was based out of Colorado. Also remember that Mormon is pretty backward, and Kansas is trying to shoehorn creationism into the public school system. Not to mention that Scientology is all throughout LA and Clearwater, FL (which is technically not part of the south).
I'm from the south. We're not all backward rednecks. I'm a liberal atheist who is voting for Obama again in 2012. I'm not fat. I don't hunt. I don't eat roadkill.
I should also mention that E. O. Wilson was from Alabama. Muddy Waters was from Mississippi. Tennessee Williams and Eudora Welty are from Mississippi. Ray Charles was from Georgia. The south gets a bad reputation for the loud idiots, but you can't forget the musicians, writers, artists, and intellectuals who were from the south and who really were a positive influence on the world.
one of the most republican states in the country is Utah, where 70 percent of people who voted in Utah in 2008 voted for McCain...meaning that 30 percent of Utoids voted for Obama
so, of course, overgeneralizing any region is simplistic to the point of uselessness
It's seems hyperbole is lost on you assholes.
I prefer to think of the south as a peek into the future. This is the direction we're going in.
I'm all for religion in school. Teach them the Bible. Teach them what the major denominations are and what they disagree on.
Problem fucking solved.

When I went to a public high school in Canada, we had a few Christian performers do shows over the years. They tended to downplay the Jesus aspects of their performances, which only made them more confusing. My favorite were the guys who broke baseball bats on their knees and wrapped apart phone books because Jesus and also don't do drugs.

This dude is one of the Icy Hot Stuntaz. I'm not kidding.
Still, it must be sad to know your life has already peaked.

When do the Calvinists get to present at the school?
If they're turned away, they just think it was meant to be and move on.

I can't wait for the Satanist rock show.
Is that before or after the Santerķa bake sale / craft show.

This happened in my high school back in 93-94. The school was called to an assembly one day and we were treated to about an hour of being lectured and talked-down to by some preacher from a local Baptist mega-church. There was also a performance by some has-been rapper who apparently was once a member of Gravediggaz but then became a rapper 4 DA LORD (I have never verified this at all, maybe someone more knowledgeable in rap can confirm it). The last third or so of the "assembly" consisted of the preacher playing what was supposedly the final audio tape message of a kid who committed suicide because he had been "seduced by Satan." (the audio tape was completely unintelligible, so who knows) The preacher then blamed all of the students at the school who were not Christians for the kid's death and specifically targeted the Goth-type kids for ridicule.
