SC homobigot stirs The Base for amendment vote
“Personally, I don’t want to see a 55 percent or 60 percent vote. I want to see an 80 percent vote. That would represent South Carolina values.”
— Mike Wallace, missions development director for the York Baptist Association, on the upcoming amendment measure on the ballot in the state.
Now there’s no doubt that the upcoming amendment vote in the Palmetto State, home to Bob Jones University, will result in bigotry enshrined into its constitution, but for the bible-beaters, they want a crushing victory to send a signal to the homos there.
Inside the York Baptist Association in Rock Hill, Park Gillespie is talking about gay marriage, activist judges, the “intolerant left,” radicalization of the courts and social engineering.
…This is, after all, a state that already has a law against gay marriage, last voted for a Democrat for president 30 years ago, and is home to Bob Jones University, which had a ban on interracial dating until 2000.
…The group Gillespie is campaigning for — the Palmetto Family Council, associated with James Dobson’s Focus on the Family — estimates it will spend $70,000 on the statewide campaign. Gillespie said the polling he has seen puts the number in favor of the amendment between 77 percent and 80 percent.
…Oran Smith, president of the Palmetto Family Council, said Upstate Baptist churches have been especially active.”They have really been key,” Smith said, adding that the council has provided sample sermons in favor of the amendment.
I feel badly for my Carolina neighbors to the south; not only do they have to deal with this crap (NC has managed to dodge amendment bullets so far, a fact mentioned in the article), but SC is home to the freaking Christian Exodus movement. Its Master Plan is to secede from the union and form its own Christian Nation.
ChristianExodus.org is moving thousands of Christians to South Carolina to reestablish constitutionally limited government founded upon Christian principles. It is evident that the U.S. Constitution has been abandoned under our current federal system, and the efforts of Christian activism to restore our Godly republic have proven futile over the past three decades. The time has come for Christian Constitutionalists to protect our liberties in a State like South Carolina by interposing the State’s sovereign authority retained under the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Good luck with that — can’t wait to see how long it takes for the SC — er, the new nation’s economy to go in the sh*tter.
