The wacked out and racist…. Attie Awards!!!!
Okay, I know, the Atties have been absent. Busy, busy, busy, with book, sick kids and a host of other excuses.
But, this week’s award winner is a doozy. I came across these clowns when I found out they had members among my own denomination at the time (PCA). I was highly ashamed to occupy the same space with them in our General Assembly. I’m no longer in the PCA for other reasons. But, thankfully, the PCA has made it highly uncomfortable for these wackjobs and most have left the denomination. I wish they would just condemn it out right and save us all the trouble.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the League of the South. Here is their stated goal:
We seek to advance the cultural, social, economic, and political well-being and independence of the Southern people by all honourable means.”
Yes, dear readers, these people want to withdraw from America and form their own Southern republic. Some very funny statements from their site:
For cultural distinctiveness the LS eschews the use of Webster’s so-called “American” English orthography which actually is nothing more than a bastardisation of the proper and correct English language by New England busybodies.
Therefore, The League of the South advocates the secession and subsequent independence of the Southern States from this forced union and the formation of a Southern republic.
While these statement are funny, the underlying racism of this moevement is not. The Southern Povery Law Center wrote an excellant expose of the racist undertones of this movement. What makes the Thomas Society crazy is how they continue to invoke Christianity to support their views.
These people are kooks of the highest order.
St. Thomas, release the hounds and gnaw on some good ole Southerin’ cookin’. Tell them the Society sent you.
PS- As wack as they people are, I’m hoping to receive our first ever threats. Yay! Free Press!!!
