Country Folks Have Nothing But Love For Honey Boo Boo
There aren't many Catholics in McIntyre, Georgia where the Honey Boo Boo clan lives. The rednecks who live in that neck of the woods attend Baptist and Pentecostal churches, and they don't look too kindly at Catholic rituals and practices.
But Bible Belt evangelicals would be well-advised to adopt the Catholic practice of declaring godly individuals saints.
I'm persuaded that most hillbillies and rednecks wouldn't have too much of a problem if the Southern Baptist denomination proclaimed Honey Boo Boo Child a saint.
A redneck would'nt mind slapping a confederate flag decal on the bumper of his truck, and a Honey Boo Boo icon hanging from his rear view mirror.
The Honey Boo statue wouldn't protect believers from deer running across their path; on the contrary it would attract deer so they could enjoy road kill deer meat for months.
I grew up a Catholic, and I still remember a nun telling me that whenever I was in trouble I should pray: Mary and Joseph help me!
When facing temptation or danger country Christians could pray: Devil, you'd betta redneckognize I'm a believer and leave me alone.
Catholics, evangelicals and atheists should agree that nothing but good can come from invoking the name of Honey Boo Boo Child
