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.

Freedom Caucus and SBC Takeover

   In the Freedom Caucus Paul Pressler;s for a Southern Baptist America is almost a done deal. Today on Yellowhammer News Mike Huckabee told Baptist preacher's son Cliff Sims Daniel Webster was his Florida chair for President in 08.   A call to Webster's DC office revealed Webster's ties to SBC President Jim Henry.
      Though not an FC member, FBC Sburg's Trey Gowdy has all the trimmings of FC loyalty and adoration from the Tea Party and what Pressler wrought in the SBC.
     Former UNC chancellor Bill Friday told Cecil Sherman in early 90s the most significant event in North Carolina in the 80s was the fundamentalist takeover of Southeastern Seminary, my Dad's alma mater. In that ACQUISTION, the politics of Pressler and Jesse Helms had a new foothold in the pulpits in suburbs and hamlets across the Southeast.
   For necessary background reading see Robert Wuthnow's Rough Country on the legacy of WA Criswell; and Lee Atwater's "nigger memo."
    For this cancer to be controlled Upstate SC must find a replacement for Trey Gowdy and little by little tea party districts come to their senses.
    The first 11 chapters of Genesis nor the Constitution of the United States was written so we could come to the point that a 17 week old fetus take the life of a 30 year old woman or elementary and juco children be at the mercy of somebody hitting an assault weapon armed mental patient hell bent on taking multiple lives cause Tea Party Christian America thinks it better to take him out with a baseball or a bull rush or a can of beans when thoughtful people can follow the lead of Australia with a concentrated conversation referenced in the Diane Rehm discussion of MOnday at drshow.org and a careful viewing of the Frontline Doc Series on PBS on the politics of the NRA.
    Also see Randall Balmer's Redeemer President on the Baptist fundy politics that displaced President Carter, and Charles Marsh bio of Bonhoeffer on the politics of stupidity.
