    I live in a similar distict in GA where they keep electing Terry England the genius who thinks that if his cows don't mind carrying dead calves in their uterus, women shouldn't either.  I cabn testify that a lot of my neighbors are very sweet people whoa re still utter slaves to right-wing Christianity--which means a lot of women vote against their own intersts. My doofus state rep in the legislature--the one I just described--ran UNOPPOSED>

    I am sure some ofyour bneighbors are very pleasant people--so long as it doesn't involve women having more rights than a cow--just like mine.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

        Very defensive of your neighbors.

        Rural areas make for an odd combo of decency and ignorance--some of it willful.

        I went to one county Dems meeting.  Bluntly, the Dems here were really  Rockefeller Republicans at best.  They were all anti-choice andpretty damned right-wing Christian. They're like my SiL who is finishing her Ph.D. in Gifted Education, whose car sported a McCain/Palin sticker--and she may well be the family liberal, because everyone else who bothers to vote, votes the way their pracher tells them.

          I just have no idea what attics and chicken coops have to do with any of this, other than to provide simplistic caricatures and stereotypes

            talk about how women should be submissive, never talk in church, never question a preacher's interpretation  and generally behave like submissive second class citizens.  Religion can be a prison for women. Let's face it: women voting for Louie G. are voting against their own basioc interests. He's comp;lete;y anti-choice.
