More surreal than the OP? From out here on the Left Coast, the kind of hypersaturated Christian culture that would produce someone / thing like that seems pretty bizarre to me.

What about this religious creep? Do you think there might be a reason public displays of religiosity from areas that are not "The South" don't get more national attention?

It just doesn't fit the meme when some "yank" or some leftist Californian makes an open display of their religious faith. Hell, did you know that Nancy Pelosi publicly encouraged the Catholic Church to preach a political message? Does that left coast democrat not understand the divide between church and state?

How about, in the future, you don't come into a conversation you're not a part of. Just a thought. But since you interjected with a smite to my post explain to me how anything of what I said here isn't true:

Quote from: Nam
It's the South. Most of the South still believe it's the 19th Century where non-whites should be the slave to the whites, women shouldn't vote, and the poor should just die.

Followed by my second comment?

This conversation has taken a surreal twist. Where are you from Nam? Lori?

The South. I live there. In the Bible belt. You fuckin' retard. Smite that. At least it makes sense.

Bigotry never makes sense. There is a radio station I sometimes listen to down here that almost always plays these two songs back to back.

I'm surprised that it took 40 years for someone to point out that Bible man is an inappropriate program in a public school.

It seems incredible to me too, but less obvious examples of religious creep into public life happen in many places in the US, not just the Bible Belt South. Such is the power of Christian privilege.

Dense stacks of paper are hard to burn. I know this from burning trash in a barrel when I was a kid, and from trying to burn newspapers and old catalogs in a wood stove. In both cases, it often happened that after the fire had gone out and practically all the other trash or wood was burned to ash, the newspapers and catalogs remained mostly unburned, just the outer layers and edges. You have to separate the pages to get it to burn well. No miracles here.
