Bible Belt

Bible Belt is an informal term for a region in the southeastern and south-central United States in which socially conservative evangelical Protestantism is a significant part of the culture and Christian church attendance across the denominations is generally higher than the nation's average.

We took back roads home from Greenville today, afraid the 5-10 mile backup we saw on 95 south would not have cleared. Seen along the way: evidence that this IS the Bible Belt. Church after church after church. Lots of Free Will Baptist and United Methodist. . Healthy tobacco fields. . Corn that is way more than knee high by the 4th of July. . Ramshackle farmhouses and trailers and much newer "mansions" that make you wonder where they earn their money in the middle of nowhere. (Maybe those tobacco fields!) . Fields that prove we are in the SANDhills. . A single luxurious black field of topsoil. . Goats, cows, horses, mules.
And this is the challenge and dilemma for us. Where do we find competent moral men with unassailable integrity ? Once found , how may we pursuade them to enter into the repulsive realm of politics ? For such men, what other than a sense of duty would induce them to do battle daily with the majority who are involved for less than honorable motives ? Dr. Ron Paul was such a man and we may remember the ridicule he endured during his bid for the Presidency. Even a crowded debate auditorium in the "Bible Belt" resounded with "boos" after he had the audacity to suggest that our foreign policy should be influenced by the "Golden Rule". In my opinion, this indicates something is gone wrong in the Churchand by extension our whole society. As the Pastors are ultimately responsible for the flock we should consider their training ground for an answer to the question, "What has changed ?" Dr. Paul stood virtually alone in Congress, a man whose voting record conformed to his oath of office. Fortunately, and perhaps pro ...
"Let it rock, let it roll, let the Bible Belt go and save my soul." Will always be some of my favorite lyrics.

Some sociological behaviors that are faux pas in America are completely acceptable in Europe. With that in mind I've made the following list of things I should refrain from whilst I'm stateside: 1) NO BEER WITH LUNCH: This, I think may be the most benign, but it's amazing how many professionals you see at the pub at noonish having a pint. It comes free with a meal for God's sake 2) DON'T SAY "CAN I HAVE A *** : When wanting a cigarette in the US, it's best to say words like cig, square, or smoke and not an anti *** slur 3) REMEMBER VULGARITY IS NOT SO COMMONPLACE ESPECIALLY IN THE BIBLE BELT: It's a fact: Europeans use the F word more frequently than in the States. I don't care what religion they are, everyone says it. And if you don't think it's influential, ask my mom who thinks I've just come on shore leave, esp if I'm agitated. Also, the British throw the C word around more liberally than we do. I get called a "cheeky c**t" at least twice a week. 4) NO SLAPPING RANDOM FEMALES ON THE BACKSIDE: I think ...

Life's Questions - My Biggest Challenge at Stanford University : "By Heather Williams I am a Stanford student, everyone reminds me. Stanford -- the Harvard of the West, the Disneyland of the North -- producing hundreds of world leaders every June. Here at Stanford, we are passionate about making the world a better place, bringing all our strengths to bear in making it perfect. "You can make a difference!" "The power lies within!" These are the mottoes that we hear and by which we live our everyday lives. The dominant world view at my university does not really allow for moral or personal weakness. To need salvation is to admit defeat. When I entered Stanford, the world lay at my feet then, waiting to be revolutionized. I attended political meetings, took classes on racism and social justice, and immersed myself at the community service center. I believed in the power within me to make a significant difference in the world. I tutored underprivileged elementary school kids; I ran the day camp at a homeless ...

Similar to the article below authored by a member of the Institute of Peace and Wilson Center think tank, we should seriously start our local think tank and write articles about how ethnically different is the US and how it should be divided along Latin lines, the Bible Belt and the Liberal North East.

You look at my current main profile pic and you will see me making a kitty cat who is in heat purr. This is because cats are not counted as US citezens and are actually counted as property. I have 2 cats for my only 2 local friends and zero local friends who are human. Why? Cats don't play games and force their religeon down your throat and try to call the cops on you for not living the way they tell you to. So if you were in my heels and thinking of who to go to. A cat that purrs in your lap because petting her pleases her or a human that tells you "God hates disabled peopls" who would you go for? If you want me out of the bible belt then you pay for me to go. Cat food is way more affordable then a cheap apartment in San Fransisco.

Well folks, I'd thought i'd seen everything - but after tonight i'd have to say I was completely wrong. A short preface - - I live in Washington, NC, right in the beginning of the Southern bible belt.  There are numerous churches here - Baptist is seemingly the predominant church of choice here.  Every Sunday this town/area shuts down for church with everyone dressed in their Sunday best.  So it's quite normal to hear someone proclaim to Jesus out loud, even not on a Sunday.  Now, this is not what I normally heard in Western MD (or almost anywhere in MD for that matter) where I grew up. So at first it was a shock to hear/see some of this.  But hey, i've grown to understand it and believe it or not, appreciate it and the people that feel comfortable to profess their faith so openly. Fast forward to tonight, June 13th - Friday the 13th.  Before I leave work, my husband calls me and states in a message that it's raining VERY hard and to be careful coming home.  I work about 25 minutes to the West of ...

How many anti-theist FB posts does it take to balance out a state church with 150 state priests preaching a constitution protected state religion in 300 of the most glamorous state buildings all the time in a nation of 300 thousand on an island. Not counting three 24/7 evangelist Christian TV and radio stations supported by the US Bible Belt and broadcasting in the local language? It is probably hopeless, but still it seems a moral duty not to give up.

Way down in the Deep South, in an area known as the 'Bible Belt,' there lived a Baptist minister with a very large congregation. One morning, after a particularly moving sermon, he announced, "Friends I have been hearing very nasty rumors!" The crowd fell into an expectant silence. The Minister continued, "One of you, here among us, has been reporting that I am a member of the dreaded 'Klu Klux Klan.' This, of course, is not true! I am asking that the guilty party confess and apologize now - right here - before my flock of loyal followers." A young woman quickly stood up blushing and trembling and pled, "Preacher, please, I don't know how this all came to be. I just mentioned to one of my close friends that you were a wizard under the sheets."

It amazes me that there are over 2,000 members in this open Agnostic group. I live in a small town. Less than 7,000 people. Here, almost everyone knows everything.

But when I find them it's like finding gold. We are on the top edge of the bible belt. Right in the hills of West Virginia.

Yet they can't even comprehend what "we" are. How is it where you live ?

I'm starting to think, or know that, God moved me to Seattle for a purpose. I wonder what a bible belt boy raised by God and lost then found again is going to do up here.

"The issue is prejudice. Atheists are one of the most maligned groups in the United States, especially in the Bible Belt where the first question someone asks upon meeting you is, “So where do you go to church?” According to polls, being atheist is less acceptable in America than being *** Muslim or Jewish. Heck, even Haley and Shealy can accept a Jewish director of Social Services, but apparently not an atheist one. Last fall, a group of atheists in Spartanburg, South Carolina, were excluded from volunteering at a soup kitchen. Its executive director said she’d resign from her job before she would let atheists volunteer, which she said would be a “disservice to this community,” adding that the Christian organization that runs the soup kitchen “stands on the principles of God.” Apparently, allowing others to help the less fortunate goes against her Christian principles. So what did the Upstate Atheists do? They raised over $2000 to give care packages to homeless people across the street fro ...

Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” (Luke 18:15-17 ESV) None of the Gospel accounts of this event specify who "they" are, but I can just imagine mothers scurrying around with their children, infants in arm, standing in line so their little ones could be blessed by the Master. As we celebrate Mother's Day this weekend I am so thankful my mom did all she could to ensure that my life was blessed by the touch of the Master's hand!

Wanna talk about prayer in school? How it is so good for the well being of the children? Schools, unless they are private, have to maintain the separation of church and state. And I am beyond thankful for that. Down here in the bible belt, people can't believe that some people don't believe in Christ. If you don't believe in God down here, many are forced to hide their faith "in the closet" so to speak. They don't feel comfortable practicing their faith in the open because of the intolerance of others. For those of us "out of the broom closet", or non-Christians, we don't want to have to sit in class and listen to prayers to a God that I don't believe in.

And forty years later, here in the Bible belt, those interracial marriages are still frowned upon. Will it be any different for same sex marriages? Maybe one day judgemental people will grant the same freedoms to others that they expect to receive themselves.
Another notch falls off of the Bible Belt.
You won't remember anything you felt, when he rips you all apart with his Bible Belt.
Never thought I would see this in the middle of the bible belt. Next week the City of Houston led by openly *** mayor Annise Parker will vote on an ordinance introduced by Ms Parker called the "non discrimination ordinance". This bill was introduced on the basis on a gender neutral bathroom case but the language has of course, expanded to all business that refuse service based on someones sexual preference thereby subjecting businesses, civic organization, non profit 501C3 charitable groups, and religious institutions to abide by this law or face stiff penalties, loss of tax exempt status, loss of ministrial privileges, or even eventually imprisonment. This intrusion into our religious liberty has brought little opposition from anybody inside the Kingdom of God outside of a few dissenting voices among the masses. In case you did not know the goverment is supposed to represent all the people not just a select few. They take an oath to be faithful and fair to all their people through due process. From the a ...
LOL at Arkansas having the *** marry and we can't. Have you been to Arkansas? So basically a Bible Belt state does and Ohio still doesn't. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE
Want to treat like it’s some great Democratic conspiratorial cover up? Say Howdy to Republican prosecutor.
Not easy finding an Atheist girl in the Bible belt.. . =(
I wonder how much this happens outside the Bible Belt. Hah
Its very hard in the Bible belt to be outspoken atheists.
Need water, wine n milk. Being in the Bible belt w Blue laws in SC, the ABC store closes at 7pm!!!
You would think that Central PA is the Bible Belt. Billboards with 'evolution' crossed out, saying that god created the Earth

Brought a new belt today turns out it was a Bible Belt, kept my trousers up but was very constricting
I was going to really start, but it would be a novel by the time I got done. And I wouldn't care what people said. I think it's sad that our state will not legalize medical marijuana because of the Bible belt and everyone being set in their ways saying that the Christian community would not approve. But they legalize *** marriage and I'll just tell ya the Christian community is more upset about *** marriage than they would be if the marijuana was legalized. The problem is that the president has probably never read the Bible but if he would he would know that its Biblical that man was made for women and women for men so that we could reprocreat AKA reproduce. But what do I know I never was good at studying, but that's what I get from the message God is trying to give us. But we've also got to understand we can't hate the people just the situation or Satan ways however you want to look at it. Like I said earlier I wasn't going to say much but I can go on and on but to sum it all up it's WRONG..WRONG..WRONG. ...
Proof positive that times are changing I live in god's country/Midwest/bible belt so pretty *** conservative country and highly Republican (Sheer joy of being blue living in a red state) The town that I live in has a population of around 800 or so and very rural and a long history of being very Republican I was waiting in line at the local gas station and the man at the cash register was just being a total *** Totally stressed out and freaking out as running late as the cashier was not moving as fast as he would like her to move. I was just chillaxing as I knew it would only end up in a fight if I told the guy my impression of him Was already stoked about the Republicans as there was only 2 pieces of mail this morning and both of them were from Republicans running for office.

I have to say it about Michigan, you've disappointed me. I no longer want to live here because of everything that's going on in Tennessee. Michigan you've lost a citizen and I was born here. Your government stinks too and I don't see anything to keep me here. As soon as I can get the money me and my Mother are out. Tennessee a Bible belt State, Friendly people, and lots of activities to do. Baptist churches everywhere. Great music, Good southern home cookin. I'm Tennessee bound. Anybody who lives in Michigan should do what I'm doing and find a better more supportive productive state to live in. I'm bored and tired of the weather here it's pathetic. I am never coming back. I love my church family here but I can't stay Tennessee is calling me.

I'm realizing here in the Bible Belt that life in Christ is routine and on course. We must rise up as leaders and mighty men an woman of God being the David's and Noah's. We must have VISION!!! Vision that God has given us!!! We must all find our purpose in this Army of God!!! God has plans for us but we don't allow him to use us. We We're created in his image. We have royal blood in us. We are more then Conquers!!! Seek him with a whole heart and you will find him!!!

South Carolina, 4. Alabama, 3. Georgia, 2. Mississippi, 1. Louisiana - but then again I shouldn't be surprised the the "Bible Belt" states have the most alarming. (I'm surprised that Illinois and South Carolina made the top ten over California and Florida.)
Good Morning everyone. I so happy to have another day of life and opportunities to share God's love with as many people as I can. You know when I say "share God's love" people, I think, especially here in the Bible Belt, have the notion of someone carrying a Bible and going around beating people over the head with it. But I have a little different slant on that. I believe it's more than preaching at people. I believe that sharing God's love is about loving people more than I love me and putting their interests ahead of mine. Will I be taken advantage of? I'd like to say no, but people have taken advantage of my acts of compassion, mercy, grace and love. By their actions, people have called me foolish, gullible, I suspect I've even been grouped in with *** but that's okay. What I give, what I do, what I say to the people I try to reach out to, I do so in the name of Jesus. So the way I look at it, people who criticize me are really criticizing Jesus and those who take advantage of my kindness are ...
Jesus died and was buried long ago. There is real evidence for that. You should talk to a doctor or psychologist who will explain to you the reality that the sexual orientation a person is born with can not be changed. It can be suppressed however by the "power of belief" working in the subconscious mind, and that is a reality for many young *** who are coerced by religious people and friends. Many *** especially in the Bible belt of the U.S. are so discriminated against, that they feel pressured to live a lifestyle with is not their true selves. Yes, they can even have wives and children while that inner truth is oppressed. Most often they end up in their 40's as suicides or returning to addictions that first got them in trouble. and no one understands why. Religiously indoctrinated people will even use their death as an example of "Satan" corrupting them again. Religion is unGodly. Religious people do not get genuine strength from an imaginary Allah, Shiva or Jesus in their minds. A human being's str .. ...

Just wanted to say how happy I am to see Sullivan County mayor Steve Godsey get thrashed in the Republican primaries Tuesday. He said some pretty nasty and judgemental things about *** not long ago. I doubt the guy who beat him will be any better on those issues but the thoughts of him getting trounced makes me giddy! For some of my friends who may not know this is an extremely conservative area of the Bible Belt. Usually the winner of the GOP primary is unchallenged because no democrats run around here. 70% republican. Ick!
Moving to the bible belt for the conversation is like moving to Wyoming for the bagels , lox , and Challah bread .
One thing I like about living in the Bible belt is the news always has people Praising and thanking God :)
Good Morning Everyone... Now let me start by saying.. ATLANTA your grace has not been too good lately So this building of the Church of Bey is not pleasing to God especially when 285 is the largest Christian ring and bible belt in the world (look it up) ... the moment you step foot in that church to Idolize and praise her and not God.. Don't look for God's blessings anymore and look for more days like the "SNOW DAYS of 2014".

Kelvin Benjamin welcome to the bible belt!!! I ain't mad at our pick
My heart goes out to anyone who is in so much psychic pain that he would assault some of god's most beautiful, talented, loving and kind human beings. If communities do indeed grow through pain, then I am excited for the growth spurt I anticipate in the Shoals due to the LGBT/Jack O Lantern Farms/ Shirey Ice Cream crisis of faith, love and understanding. These are the posts I made tonight and my partner and I stand by them and the entire Shoals community. : Six Degrees Shoals: It is NOT a complex conversation...it is a simple choice. Either believe something that may or may not have been translated properly TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO or choose to love your fellow human beings. 6 minutes ago · Like · 1 Six Degrees Shoals: I do not and will not ever support a church or a religion that denigrates women or men in any way.

I think there's little doubt why the nation's Bible Belt overlaps Tornado Alley. Oklahoma knows what it is to be smote.

That would be epic. they wouldn't get a single vote in the bible belt though.
As of this minute, I vow to stop reading comments on local news stories. Everyone stands ready to cast the first stone; innocent until proven guilty does not exist; the number of citizens recommending death penalties for crime is staggering. I feel as though I've stumbled through a black hole from the Bible Belt and ended up in some medieval peasants' torch and pitchfork mob. Who *are* you people, and how can you claim to follow Christ?
The state of Alabama, the Heart of Dixie, the Bible belt, the Kingdom of the Good ole' Boys, the Nation's representation to the world that religious dogma is justification for domestic terrorism against Indians, Africans, Mexicans, Muslims, Jews, women, children, and unconsecrated sex, while the Nation's military fight's wars in other countries against 'evil' people that do exactly the same, yes, exactly the same. Maybe I have Alabama confused with the Theocratic Republic of Texas, or the "It ain't actually slavery no more. We pay um some money now," Caucasian Empire of Mississippi. It's easy to confuse them these days, with their long lay-away plans for justice, their state justified homicides and prisons overflowing with those that broke the religious moral codes. This is what one sees when they are wide awake and living among people sharing a mass fantasy of white, male dominant, consecrated supremacy. I am a white man, born and raised in Alabama in a Christian Church, a Wounded Warrior and decorated W ...

Benny Haun is the biggest of all the bible belt scam artist. He has personally made hundreds of millions for himself and the people he heeled died or were in on the scam.
Honestly, it's a Bible Belt judge mental small town part of the country that we live in. Really, who are anyone of us to judge someone that we only hear stories about. Seeing someone cry today that is so hurt because of things going on beyond her control, has got me really tore up and thinking about things. PEOPLE keep your mouths shut and focus on your own lives or problems and God will take care of it. I'm learning to get a back bone and tell it the way it is. Please don't PM me and ask me who I'm talking about because I'm respecting her privacy. Just think before you talk- including myself!
Like James from your favorite podcast Below The Bible Belt? Like listening to complex mythologies streamlined down to just the weird parts? Then it's entirely possible you'll like Hercules vs. the Podcast, where James and Mike Napier of Pulp Nightmare and Box Office Pulp fame tackle a mythological figure each episode, and try their best to make sense of the fan-fiction of ancient civilizations. Today's episode: The Hercman, two lions, and a surprising amount of centaur semen.
WHEN ARE WE GOING TO LEARN??? "And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. (Genesis 1:26 In Psalm 8: "Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hand; thou has put all things under his feet." OKAY, God created us to have dominion over everything. He gave EVERYTHING to man to do what we wanted with it. And what did man do with it? Gave it away to Satan! Man believed the liar. And now -- with all the trouble we are still suffering because we didn't listen to God, we want to build a STATUE to honor Satan, and have him over our children. WHEN DO YOU THINK WE ARE GOING TO LEARN??? Really??? DO WE REALLY WANT TO TAKE THIS FURTHER. Oklahoma is in the Bible belt -- Did the belt break, and are we all sagging. Haven't we been down this road enough? Evil is still evil -- Satan is still going ...
Does anyone remember when Susan Woody (on the morning show with Greg Budell now) did the morning show with Bear O'Bryant? They were hilarious! My son would call every morning and ask to speak to Miss Susan. He would ask her to play Bible Belt and T-R-O-U-B-L-E by Travis Tritt. She would usually do it 3 out of the 5 days of the week.

A few days ago, I came out to my mom as an agnostic. I thought it would be better if she learned it from me than from my book, which just came out, which I just sent her a copy of, which she has by now read. Her response so far? Silence. I'm not about to claim “admitting” agnosticism to your parents is as fraught as “admitting” homosexuality. But when your mom is from the Deep South, the Bible Belt, Alabama to be exact, the rejection and condemnation precipitated by your revelation can be extreme. (I realize the word “admit” has the wrong connotation. Sometimes words fail me. Or maybe I fail them.)
The same thing was going on in Holland a few months ago: some kids in our Bible belt (where vaccination is not perse the norm) got the measles and this was used by the MSM and the Government to shame the parents of these kids and peddle their poisonous concoctions. As is well known, the measles (and indeed all other infections) had long stopped being major killers before vaccinations started, because of better hygiene. Meanwhile, I'm not on the 'autism is caused by vaccinations' bandwagon. There are a number of reasons. In the first place, there is no such thing as 'autism'. There are a bunch of 'symptoms' and if you have some of these, you are labelled. Secondly, autism is seen in boys far more than in girls. Third, many of said 'symptoms' are basically male characteristics. For instance, a lower sensitivity to social customs. Also, often they are said to be fairly intelligent. I think 'autism' is (much like ADD/ADHD) often simply a matter of over-diagnosing, which is so common these days. But I think th ...

So yesterday, here in the Bible Belt, I heard a message, once again, about eschatological speculation - in particular, Premillenialism. I see the whole thing as a market consisting of supply and demand. Suppliers include Hal Lindsey, Tim La Haye, and many, many others. Their motives are obvious. Suppliers sell because buyers buy. I wonder about buyers' motives. What's behind the demand? If I wrote a book answering the question, would you read it?

Just an observation or two as I see news of the tornadoes that hit in the South and Midwest. First, if fundamentalist Christians think God comments on human events through weather (and a lot of them think that), what is God saying about the culture of the Bible Belt? Second, all this should make those residents more willing to believe that climate change is real, which should turn the GOP away from the no-nothings, but that isn't happening.

Why Has Lent Become Cool with Evangelicals?--Not the Thing that Comes from Your Dryer Born in the Bible Belt and raised in an evangelical church, I didn’t know what Lent was until after I graduated from college. That was nearly ten years ago, and since that time I’ve seen an explosion of evangelical observation of Lent. I’ve seen that surge in the church where I pastor, without any promotion from me. I’ve seen the same on social media, going hardly more than two minutes without bumping into a post by a friend describing what they are doing, reading, or giving up for Lent. Of course, my congregation and my circle of friends is a limited sample. But I don’t think we need a national survey to see that among evangelicals Lent is more widely observed than ever before. As the great theologian Bob Dylan once said, “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” But you might need a weatherman to know if this sudden gust of wind is a genuine move of the Spirit, or if it’s just th ...

Conservative Christianity Hurts Marriage? Not Exactly . By Eric Metaxas, Christian Post Contributor February 12, 2014|8:56 am According to a study about to be published in the American Journal of Sociology, being conservative Protestant, i.e., an evangelical, is not helpful when it comes to staying married. In fact, the authors conclude, "divorce is higher among religiously conservative Protestants-and even drives up divorce rates for other people living around them." Say what? The study, entitled "Red States, Blue States, and Divorce: Understanding Regional Variation in Divorce Rates," examined data on divorce for every county in the United States. What Jennifer Glass of the University of Texas and Philip Levchak of the University of Iowa found was that a "a key factor predicting divorce rates is the concentration of conservative Protestants in a county." For instance, Bible Belt states like Alabama and Arkansas rank second and third in divorce rates, while Massachusetts and New Jersey, so-called "Blue" ...

Recently one Congressman from a Bible Belt congressional district was asked about his attitude toward whiskey. The politician responded, "If you mean the demon drink that poisons the mind, pollutes the body, desecrates family life, and inflames sinners, then I'm against it." He continued, "But if you mean the elixir of Christmas cheer, the shield against winter chill, the taxable potion that puts needed funds into public coffers to comfort little crippled children, then I'm for it. "This is my position and I will not compromise."

The news showed the controversial Coca-Cola commercial, and it looks like some people got pretty upset. If you think about the history of our great country dating back to the Pilgrims and even to Columbus and his encounters with Native Americans, you might actually give Coca-Cola a lot of credit for having gotten it right this time. After Columbus' arrival, brutal though it was, Spaniards took over the lower 1/3 of the United States in what is now known as the Bible Belt to include territory in states we now call Arizona, California, Nevada, Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida, and a few others - they spoke Spanish to say the least. Remember, we bought Florida from the Spanish. Yes, I realize we paid the wrong people for Florida, but what is done is done. Those Latinos decided ...
