Put the Serpents Down and Defend Yourself

Dande (#4WV), I haven't seen enough of you lately, so I'm including this regarding your Holy Roller Redneck church. Only wish I'd written them!

You know you go to a redneck church when:

  1. The finance committee refuses to provide funds for the purchase of a chandelier because none of the members knows how to play one.
  2. People ask, when they learn that Jesus fed the 5000, whether the two fish were bass or catfish, and what bait was used to catch 'em.
  3. When the pastor says, "I'd like to ask Bubba to help take up the offering," five guys and two women stand up.
  4. Opening day of deer season is recognized as an official church holiday.
  5. A member of the church requests to be buried in his 4-wheel-drive truck because "It ain't never been in a hole it couldn't get out of."
  6. The choir is known as the "OK Chorale".
  7. In a congregation of 500 members, there are only seven last names in the church directory.
  8. Baptism is referred to as "branding".
  9. High notes on the organ set the dogs on the floor to howling.
  10. People think "rapture" is what you get when you lift something too heavy.
  11. The baptismal pool is a #2 galvanized washtub.
  12. The choir robes were donated by (and embroidered with the logo from) Billy Bob's Barbecue.
  13. The collection plates are really hubcaps from a '56 Chevy.
  14. Instead of a bell, you are called to service by a duck call.
  15. The minister and spouse drive matching pickup trucks.
  16. The communion wine is Boone's Farm "Tickled Pink".
  17. "Thou shall not covet" applies to huntin' dogs, too.
  18. The final words of the benediction are, "Y'all come back now, Ya heah?"

historical records don't condemn or condone the fact that Jesus's blood was strawberry/kiwi flavored. i'm just sayin'.
