This afternoon, because of a share on Facebook, I came across this fireball of a Christian blogger – why have I just now heard of her?
Anyway, I thought the following post of hers was so provocative Thad I had to share it. I know a few of you will disagree with a few of her points, but I hope not all of them. Otherwise, you might be apostate 🙂
(Michelle Lesley, I look forward to reading more of your not-quite-Calvinist posts)
Comedian Jeff Foxworthy hit the big time several years ago with his “You Might Be a Redneck” one-liners. He frequently introduced the bit by saying, “I’ve found that there are rednecks all over, but sometimes people don’t know they’re rednecks. So, I came up with this little test…” and continued with such gems as:
“If you’ve ever had to carry a bucket of paint to the top of a water tower to defend your sister’s honor, you might be a redneck.”
“If your wife has ever said, ‘Honey, come get this transmission out of the tub so I can take a bath!’ you might be a redneck.”
“If you’ve ever been accused of lying through your tooth, you might be a redneck.”
It was a routine that a lot of us in the South found hilarious because we knew someone who fit nearly every one of Jeff’s jabs.
