they sure put in a lot of effort to apologize for their beliefs

maybe they should just adopt ones that they don't have to be so ashamed of

“Is that all you've got?”

The first class will be "Boogerman 101" . Field trips will be street corners in Jackson,Meridian,Memphis, And Tupelo. Dress will be black polyester suits, string ties, "Buddy Holly" glasses,and shiney zip boots. Exercises will include "thumping" and reciting only the chosen earmarked passages to push their narrow beliefs while ignoring the rest of the Bible in It's whole. These people will chase away Christians and put distance between non-Christians. P.S. Don't woory, serpent handling is not until "Boogerman 102"
