I’m not a Baptist.
I’m certainly an ally though against the cultural termites who are gnawing away at the foundation of our civilization. Southern identity, the Baptist faith, social conservatism and especially populism are deeply linked. “Fascism” is not part of our cultural DNA. It is funny that liberals worry so much about it though. If there is one thread that runs through our history, it is a dislike of being told what to do.
Note: No one will ever convince me that Southern Baptists are better off when they fall away from their faith or fail to practice their values. The mainstream secular culture is far and away more subversive. The world would be a better place with fewer drunks, fewer sluts, fewer drug addicts and less vulgarity.
