...are Bible-thumping asshats...Why do I say this (not to mention create a post about it)?

I'm tired of all the effing negativity being thrown around casually about the South and its inhabitants. I see so many posts where people lump us all into the same category, and I'm tired of it!

Sure, I don't like my state too much (at least a good chunk of the time, as it does some REALLY stupid stuff), but that's no reason to assume that all Texans (or what have you) deserve to be regarded as ignorant as the majority.

My short rant is over...We aren't all this guy:


BMW out!

We're lumped in with the south because of the culture being similar enough to the other states east of us. We had the plantations, the slavery, the fight to separate from the north, etc. Heck, we're also majority Southern Baptists, as well.
From what I've seen in my neck of the woods, southern Illinois is more 'southern' than 'Illinois.'
