What we’re up against. #StarkeContrast

There have been all sorts of funny/depressing pictures coming out of Florida at the unveiling of the secular monument.  Here are my favorites.

The sign on the left reads:

“If you don’t like our Christian culture, go back home!

My home is America and I’m already here.  So, since that’s out of the way, I guess I should point out that you don’t own America.  If I disagree with you, you have no right to demand I go anywhere.  What’s more, it’s a pretty shitty way to deal with a disagreement.  When Christians go pissing on the Constitution I’ll say something.  It has nothing to do with your culture.

The other sign says:

“The South is a Christian Nation”

The South is not a nation.  They tried to become a nation once – something to do with slavery being legal.  In fact, they flew that same flag you have behind your signs.  It didn’t work out so well for them.

You stay classy Florida League of the South.

Here’s another winner:

You can click on the image to make it larger, but you’ll see the woman on the left has a sign that says “Kook (maybe “Hook”?) for Jeses”.  This woman’s Christian faith is so central to her life, she’s so proud she happily adopts the label of kook without a hint of shame, that she made the sign and drove out to hold it.  Think of all the believers who stayed home!  But not this lady.  And yet, as important as her faith is to her, perhaps the most central thing in her life, she doesn’t know how to spell her god’s name.

These people vote.
