    As in, they promise to make their spouse's life a living hell if she violates Gawd's will by trying to divorce their abusive, controlling asses.

      Please do not stereotype all of us race fans.  I am a southerner who happens to be a NASCAR fan.  We are not all toothless rednecks.  The person who introduced me to dkos is a friend of mine via racing.  I know it can be easy to lump all southerners and race fans into a single stereotype, but we should not fall into the that same stereotyping that the right wing does.  Thanks.

        too (who are not in the South!). Sorry about the stereotyping.

        The patriarchal, anti-modernist Promise Keepers, on the other hand... THEM I'll stereotype.

          we're cool.  I honestly did not take personal offense, but merely commented that sometimes we here (myself included) also stereotype large groups of people based upon pre-conceived notions rather than by their deeds.  I have no problem with categorizing certain groups who publicly have stated their purpose which is offensive and their deeds reflect that. We know the Promise Keepers by their deeds.  :-)
