Here’s a pretty funny (and sad or frustrating, depending on your mood) link that my Dad sent me. Apparently these guys are trying to persuade conservative Christians around the country to move to South Carolina in order to take it over, secede from the Union, and establish a Christian theocracy. Seriously? They somehow seem to take it seriously.
Now South Carolina tried the whole secessionist thing at least twice before and it didn’t really work out, did it? Of course, that’s not my main problem with this (though I love South Carolina… I wish they had picked Mississippi or Utah or something… what about an island somewhere?). How in the world can they think this is a biblical response to sin in the culture? I don’t recall Jesus saying anything like “Get the heck away from the world and start your own country.” I seem to recall Him ordering His followers to GO INTO all the world. (cf. Acts 1:8).
So I don’t know whether to rant or laugh. Guess I did a little of both.
