Perhaps he is a METHodist

Jerusalem. Mecca. The Bohdi Tree. As you can see, noble religions can be born in a multitude of places. Now we know that they can even be born in the trench of a home made septic tank!

Since we live in a country where Larry the Cable Guy can make $30,000,000 a year, it makes sense that people take their hillbilly ignorance very serious, something we learned all to well on Sunday when Joshua Lee Joehlin was arrested for “a lewd and lascivious act with a minor” and listed his religion on the police report as “Redneck”. Funny, you’d think the fact the smell and general disinterest in the rights and safety of women would make that obvious enough to leave out of a police report.

I suppose however that “redneck” is in it’s own way a faith: they have their own sabbath (NASCAR race days or Friday Night football in season), they have their own sacrimental wine (Sweet Kentucky Moonshine) and their own liturgical music (the crooning of Charlie Daniels/George Strait). In a way he’s not a stupid redneck at all for his affirmation of his faith, just a suspected pervert.

I am a little confused however why the state of Florida lists “religion” in its police reports, but as this is one of the less strange bits of information we’ve heard from the Sunshine State lately I might just have to let it slide.
