Just when I think I’ve seen every crazy evangelical trick in the book, (no, not The book…), this pops up in my RSS feed today:
That’s right boys and girls‚Äì pack your toothbrush and Sunday best, we’re moving to South Carolina! We’re changing the world of America one state at a time with our migration to the new Holy Land of… erm, South Carolina. Here’s the plan, as quoted from the site:
Rather than spend resources in continued efforts to redirect the entire nation, we will redeem States one at a time. Millions of Christian conservatives are geographically spread out and diluted at the national level. Therefore, we must concentrate our numbers in a geographical region with a sovereign government we can influence through the electoral process.
No job in SC? No problem. Just check out the job opportunities module on the site. There are 98 jobs available in several vocations for the most diligent and devout Christians. If you are worthy, God will have a job for you. Trust me on this.
Not only do they refuse to apply for 501(c)3 Tax Deductible Charitable Organisation status, Christian Exodus pretty much talks shit about churchs that utilise this tax bracket.
We believe that America suffers its current Godless state, because our churches have decided that their precious tax-deductible status is more important than preaching the Gospel as it regards ALL facets of life including civic responsibilities and politics. We refuse to fall prey to the same temptation.
Burn a few bridges‚Äì you’re crusading! Here’s the best bit‚Äì the Mission Statement, which they call: “Our Intention”
ChristianExodus.org is an association of Christians who no longer wish to live under the unjust usurpation of powers by the federal government, and therefore resolves to formally disassociate itself from this tyrannical authority, and return to the model of governance of a constitutional republic. We seek a republican government constrained by constitutionally delegated powers. If this cannot be achieved within the United States, then we believe a peaceful withdrawal from the union to be the last available remedy.
“…a peaceful withdrawl from the union…”
Let me help you pack your bags. Onward Christian wackos…
Enjoy their site. It’s the best mouth agape reading I’ve done in a long time. Oh, and before it’s mentioned in a comment, yes, it’s true I don’t live in the US anymore. I didn’t move for political reasons, however, if this exodus actually were to work, I’d fly back just to help them build the wall around their little right-wing extremist twisted Christian freakville in South Carolina. I would actually sweat to cage them up in their little separatist compound. All 98 of them.
Oh‚Äì one more thing… I noticed the President and founder of Christian Exodus has a wife, son and baby on the way. And they live in California. So, when exactly is he planning to move?
And as a disclaimer to anyone of a sensitive religious nature: I am very pro religion as long as it doesn’t oppress the rights and liberties of others. Religion is great stuff for millions of people. I just really enjoy poking fun at the freaky stuff. So no flaming comments… A sense of humour is required here.
