  •  As a Recovering Southerner Myself... (4+ / 0-)

    I always tell non-Southerners: "The problem is that in the South, the smart ones GET OUT."

    You get tired of dealing with all that sanctimonious hatred hidden by the thinnest veneer of Southern HospitalityTM and just leave and stay away.

    My brother and my mother both live in South Carolina, and I will never go there except for the briefest of visits. Where they live, you can cut the fear and hate emanating from the citizenry with a knife. And it's all fed by the churches.

    Southerners believe in their own God-given superiority over everyone, but live in constant mortal fear of The Other, which is understandable given that that region's social model is 17th-century English aristocracy. It has never really progressed past that social model-- and at this rate, probably never will.

    -8.75,-8.00. 1,138 rights and responsibilities of civil marriage are denied married same-sex couples, and I demand that we get them. RIGHT. NOW.
