Quoting momma melissa85:" the bible belt is like the south, if you picture a belt running across the bottom of the states, meaning ... [snip!] ... call Alabama the buckle of the belt but the other southern states are just as bad. The bible belt usually votes republican too."
Yes, there are very many Conservative Republicans where we were living. DH's father is one, in fact. The entire family is assumed to be Republican and if you indicate in the slightest that you're not you can prepare for a smurf storm. Dinner at their home consists of saying grace first, then discussing politics over the hearty meal that The Good Lord gave them. It was a bunch of fun, I sure do miss it.
While living with my in-laws I asked my husband if he voted in 2008 because I couldn't remember. My FIL heard our conversation and chimed in with "You better had!" and DH said he didn't. My FIL then began saying how he was behind Rick Perry (this was before he dropped out). My husband asked if I was behind Michele Bachmann, I told him I thought she was a quack based off of her views on gays. My FIL began questioning my stance on gay marriage, when I told him how I felt I was called a retard and that I needed to pick up the Bible. I laughed, went out for a smoke, and a listened to his muffled ranting and raving.
