Well, the south, aka "Bible Belt" or "Redneck Country" or "Confederate States" or "White inbred religous nutbags" is a place I really don't care to go...

1. I believe churches that refuse membership to ANY person, based on their lifestyles, desiring membership is acting in opposition to Christ and his teachings. Now, if that person brings anti-christian behavior INTO the church (i.e. teaches, practices what is considered unGodly acts WITHIN the church - run their butts off, because the church cannot be sallied by anti-christian practices and teachings) BUT, to deny the gospel to some one because they are a sinner (whatever that sin is defined by) is the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard of in my life. Christ said he came for the sinner...otherwise, he didn't have to come at all.

Actually, I live about 3 hours SE of Albany. Been in the South since the day I was born. Sure, I agree there are some things that are wrong and that some people are treated wrongly, but there was no need for his basic gerneralization of the entire South. His quote showed alot of ignorance on something he knows very little about. (IMO)
