Republican Baptist Church: Truth in Advertising in South Carolina?

Truth in Advertising?

Given that it’s primary season in South Carolina, I couldn’t help but chuckle when I stumbled across this church sign while driving in the state. It is the perfect encapsulation of Christian Nationalism. I couldn’t have made this up if I wanted to!

If only all churches were this honest about their political allegiances. And if only the Republicans had an ounce of this honesty in their current political campaigns!

    They could always market themselves to Newt Gingrich supporters by advertising: “Have your wedding here, and the next two are on us!”

    Are they really named this because of the Republican party or is the town named Republican? I’m going out on a limb here, hoping it’s not what it appears to be.

      It’s named for Republican Rd. I am just having a bit of tongue-in-cheek fun.
