Name:

Born May 18, 1953; got saved at Truett Memorial BC in Hayesville, NC 1959. On rigged ballot which I did not rig got Most Intellectual class of 71, Gaffney High School. Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking. Had a Pakistani Jr. Davis Cupper on the Ropes the summer of 84, City Courts, Rome Georgia I've a baby sitter, watched peoples homes while they were away on Vacation. Freelance writer, local consultant, screenwriter, and the best damn substitute teacher of Floyd County Georgia in mid 80's according to an anonymous kid passed me on main street a few years later when I went back to get a sandwich at Schroeders. Had some good moments in Collinsville as well. Ask Casey Mattox at www.clsnet.org if he will be honest about it. I try my best to make it to Bridges BBQ in Shelby NC at least four times a year.

Upstate S.C. Republicans Embrace Casey Mattox

At least Santorum and Gingrich and Perry do as they have a conference tonight in Hyatt Regency in Greenville ralleying around Mississippi's failed Personhood Amendment which Casey's leader with the Allied Defense Fund, Charles Pickering advocated. At least all indicators are to that effect.
Over the weekend, leadership in the Southern Baptist Convention met at Paul Pressler's ranch outside Houston according to a Brian Kaylor report of Jan 16 at ethicsdaily.com. It was Pressler who assaulted Three former Furman religion professors book on the Old Testament, People of the Covenant in the 60's and used it as a ralleying point to demagogue Baptists into the right wing of the Republican party. See Dan Williams, God's Own Party.
So Casey Mattox is in the driver's seat and it doesn't look like his colleagues from Collinsville who went on the sterling higher educations at Duke, UVA, Yale and some to UBama and Auburn and Habitat for Humanity are gonna say anything to contest Casey's view of the world.
If they decide to say something, Bishop Willimon's peculiar prophet blog would be a good place to start; and or Giberson and Stephens book the Anointed; one supportive jacket blurb being that of Matthew's visitting proff at Yale, and my good friend, Randall Balmer, twice Dotson Nelson lecturer at Samford.
But right now Casey and his misguided religious politics are on a roll
