Okay, maybe not a showdown, persay, but still awesome...

I went to Taco Bell today because I was hungry and wanted to try the new XXL Chalupa (for the record, it is fucking awesome).

Anyways, it was pretty busy. The store itself was pretty full (I was getting my food to go, though, so I wasn't looking for a seat). Luckily, there was only one guy in front of me. There was a 6-person family in front of him, but they had already started ordering when I got in line. 4 other people got in line behind me, but I think they were the end of the lunch rush 'cause no one else showed up.

Anyways, the guy right in front of me could not have been more obviously Christian if he had been singing about it. The back of his shirt said "I love Jesus Christ" and he was reading a pamphlet about why evolution is a lie from Satan. Physically he just looked like the classic redneck Christian stereotype in the flesh... almost as if the stereotype was modeled on him. Indeed, as I found out when the "showdown" started, he even had that classic Christian redneck voice, and while he was speaking, it was impossible NOT to recognize that this guy was about as uneducated as they come.

I ignored him because, at this point, he was being quiet, minding his own business... until he got up to give his order...

Now, the only tell-tale sign that the cashier (likely a high school kid... or so he looked to me) was gay was a barely noticeable hint of that lisp (effeminate voice style?) that is rampant amongst gay stereotypes. He was not holding his wrists limp, he wasn't standing like a woman or whatever... he didn't even have one of those hair styles associated with the gay stereotype. I personally didn't notice the "lisp" (I really don't think that's the proper term) until after he admitted he was gay.

But this Christian apparently noticed, because when the cashier asked him what he wanted, the guy flipped out:

"'Scuse me, but'you gay?"

The cashier looked really confused and stuttered, then said "um... I mean... yeah, but... I don't see what that..."

The Christian cut him off. "I'm gon' need yew ta leave this here store so a good Christian can take maw order. Gawt that?"

The manager overheard this and walked over, and address the Christian. "I'm sorry, sir, but you're going to have to leave. We make it a policy to not serve bi

Good job stepping in and cutting the arguement. Sometimes all you need is a little distraction from the turmoil to get back into normalcy (sp). What state were you in? I am sure the cashier was most appreciative. The Christianity stricken man probably went home and tried to look up atheist in the bible.

@Linda Actually, I've been in Boca Raton, FL since April. I could have SWORN I changed that!

Marietta was bad, too, but I expected it there. But here, in Palm Beach county, FL? I mean, I know Florida's on the Bible Belt, but this far south? I'm assuming it was an anomaly... :D

@James Yeah, you're probably right...

I bet on some other forum, the Christian redneck is bragging about how he stuck up for "family values".

Totally hilarious! I hope you will always cherish this memory lol. I don't live too far from you. Good ole Bible Belt USA. At one time I lived in the same city as you do.
