Those in South Carolina- Exodus? What do you think?

The Janoski family relaxes in their Greer, S.C. back yard. They moved from Pennsylvania as part of the Christian Exodus movement.</p>

<p>(Feb. 22) - From his rural home near Lodi, Calif., Cory Burnell keeps close watch over the news from South Carolina, and he likes what he sees.</p>

<p>Turning the state into a promised land for conservative Christians will be easier than he had thought, he says.</p>

<p>Burnell, a 30-year-old financial adviser and founder of Christian Exodus, believes thousands of religious conservatives across the USA agree with him when he says their influence on government is diluted by liberals and Republicans who have failed to do what mainstream Americans elected them to do.</p>

<p>The answer he came up with in late 2003: Move like-minded Christians to one state: South Carolina.</p>

<p>The state was a logical choice. It already is conservative, having played a major role in the rise of the Republican Party since Ronald Reagan. And it's home to 750,000 Southern Baptists and Bob Jones University, a fundamentalist Christian institution...."</p>

<p>Sounds wonderful to me! ;)</p>

<p>Ha. I love it. Some nimrod in California stirring up a mass right-wing migration to South Carolina.</p>

<p>Charismatic leaders are usually unstable........hehehe Another wacko but not in Waco? Is that the story?</p>

<p>Well, apparently, some people are moving to South Carolina, so i was wondering what people in South Carolina think</p>

<p>And if you are not Christian, has this group had any impact</p>

<p>Inquiring minds want to know</p>

<p>The Daily Show did a bit on it a few months ago...</p>

<p>Might want to see if you can find was quite funny (of course...)</p>

<p>With a population of 4 million, it is going to take more than a hundred wackos relocating to have much of a political impact.</p>

<p>It is a suburban Republican dominated state with a right-wing political constituency. However, it is by no means a homogenous voting block. For example, one-third of the state's population is black and politicians ignore the political clout of that segment at their own peril. The more interesting recent development is seeing the one-time poster boy of the Christian Coalition, Lindsey Graham, distance himself a bit from that agenda over the past couple of years -- presumably with an eye towards landing a spot as John McCain's VP running mate.</p>

<p>so we can hope that this current fervor of Evangelism is going to modify? We can hope to see less of it in the next administration whomever that might be?</p>
