I am a racist, bigoted, homophobic, Bible-thumping, ignorant, backwater, illiterate, stupid woman. Oh, did I mention judgmental and hypocritical?

There.  I thought I’d get the name-calling and pre-judging over with and save everyone some time.

If you need proof, just look at where I live…Mississippi.  Yes, that Mississippi. The one liberals love to characterize as a state so full of redneck stupidity and racial oppression that we should secede from the Union…and there are times I wish we could, but not for their reasons.

Check any of the comment threads on a news story about our state, and you will understand how I have come to these conclusions of the animosity felt toward our state. However, I am not going to espouse all the wonderful qualities that Mississippi has, of which it has many, but I will tell you this; this state is on the same slippery slope as the rest of the nation.

So, let’s talk about me (which according to some is my favorite subject…)

Am I bigoted? Most definitely!!! I am a bigot toward those who believe that forcing their opinions down my throat is justifiable, but that I must be “politically correct” when stating mine. I am bigoted toward those that would take away my personal rights “for my own good”. I am bigoted toward those that spend my money without accountability. You bet I’m a bigot!

Am I homophobic? Well, that’s debatable. Having a phobia denotes having an irrational fear of something…like spiders. I am not scared of homosexuality, but I am sick to death of the LGBT community equating their movement for rights to the Civil Rights movement.  I am not going to debate the issue of gay marriage or civil unions, which I am against, but kiss-ins, vulgar language and name-calling (especially of Christians) is definitely not cool.  One of the talks I had with my children when they started dating was about PDA-Public Displays of Affection. Yuck! Whether heterosexual or homosexual…no one wants to see a couple making out.  Another lesson I tried to teach my children was that only bullies and small-minded people resort to name-calling. Good manners, people! You can debate an issue without spewing venom.

Am I subject to prejudice? In some ways, probably.  Am I proud of it? No. But as a child of the ‘60’s, I was influenced by societal prejudices and norms. Have my attitudes evolved? Yes they have, as have my states. I truly believe that all men are created equal. Enough said.

Am I a Bible-thumper? YES.  I believe that the Bible is the inerrant word of God. Period.

Am I ignorant and stupid? That’s also debatable. I do not pretend to be completely knowledgable in every subject. To say that in the past few years I had grown cynical about the political process would be an understatement. The changes that have occurred in our country have so horrified me, though, that I feel that I must educate myself and be willing to speak out…even if it is “politically incorrect”. (Pulling one’s head out of the sand is not an easy task, by the way!)

Am I a strong, conservative woman? YES!! 

…and growing stronger by the day.

    Ms. Goodman as a Christian, minority and immigrant who is a proud American, I don’t mind locking arms with those who support the constitutional freedoms of this great and blessed nation. In addition to support those who stand up for the truths of God’s Word, the Bible. Wish and Pray God’s best as you start your new business.

  • Denel

    My prayers to you and yours. We all need to fight for what is just, for our beloved country! A fight for the generation to come!

  • Jo

    Well said. So happy to hear somebody calling a spade a spade. Enough political correctness !

    Bravo and Amen Sister Redneck!

  • Lydia

    Thank you so much for all your kind words and encouragement. Also, thanks to Politichicks for letting me “vent”!

  • Ivy

    The inerrant word of God. Period. Genesis: 19:8 – Behold now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do you to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

    Yeah…you can keep your crazy book in Mississippi.

    I am from Communifornia, no-one has ever called me a red-neck and I feel the same way as you and many, many millions of of us out here feel!! I can’t wait for Nov 6 to start working on regaining our country from this far left scourge. Best of luck with your new business-with your attitude, I know it will be successful!

  • Carrie May

    Amen Lydia! Expressed with strength and dignity. We are constantly being directed and redirected in our speech by labeling, name calling, additions to the Patriot Act, threats and hands on monitoring of the Internet and Social Media etc…in an effort to keep us quiet and suppress us further. Enough is enough! Created equally we all need to be speaking up about the decline of this nation. It is a shame and embarassment what has been going on in OUR Whitehouse. Greed and lovers of themselves. No concern for others. The alarm is going off. Time to wake up and rise up America. This appears to be our last shot at what we know today as freedom. It was said long ago by a Patriot named Patrick Henry, “an appeal to arms and to the God Of Hosts is all that is left us”if we do not get these people out of the Whitehouse. Has nothing to do with race, nor socio-economic reasoning, religion etc…Has everything to do with integrity and doing what should have been done from the start but was not and what is best for the people. They all are in there of the people, by the people and for the people. Their heads and wallets get a little big and there does not seem to be any room in the unit on top of the shoulders to remember why they are there. Keep on keeping on and God Bless you as you inspire those around you!

  • Eagle Scout Mom

    I hear you Lydia!! The stuff that comes from the left is hard to swallow because it’s such a pack of lies. Conservative, God fearing, grounded, logical women are something that they simply don’t and will never understand. We have to keep up the fight, continue to be vocal whenever the opportunity comes and never be afraid. So, don’t fret and count your lucky stars that at least you aren’t living in the peoples’ republic of Illinois. I HAVE to keep my head out of the sand for feaf of being kicked in the backside! :D

  • Mary

    Wow! I’m all the things you are plus a few. I’m one of those “racist, bigoted, homophobic, Bible-thumping, ignorant, backwater, illiterate, stupid,” redneck, Louisiana (another hated Southern state) woman. I concur with you 1,000%.

  • methodistant

    But isn’t the gay rights movement the modern day civil rights movement?!?!

    Here you have a group of people (gays) who are hated because of a way they were born.

    Sound familiar?
