Christian Exodus leader stepping down

In local news this morning, Cory Burnell is no longer the leader of crackpot Christian Exodus.

Now, if they'd just leave the state and go back where they came from, we could celebrate good and proper!

Christian Exodus leader stepping down

The Greenville News • August 1, 2008


(ANDERSON, SC) -- The leader of Christian Exodus says the group still hopes to create a Christian government in South Carolina, despite the decision by its founder to step down.

Keith Humphrey told the Anderson Independent-Mail the focus of the group is still to create an independent Christian nation.

Cory Burnell has stepped down as leader of the group that was supposed to move members to South Carolina to influence elections and possibly secede from the United States. Burnell said he chose South Carolina because of its location, economic prospects, Christian influence and conservative voting history.

Burnell had planned to move to Anderson, but he says a job offer with a Seneca company was withdrawn. He says the pressures of self-employment and family have kept him from being an effective leader.
Don't go away mad, Cory, just go away! Don't let the doorknob hit you in your self-righteous, ignorant derrière!

Why, she sighed heavily, do WE always get the kooks?

On a happier note, the Carnival for Progressive Christians - First Edition is up at A Secret Chord! (Yes, your humble narrator has been included!)

Your writing is often very beautiful. I like that you always link to others. The notion that blog readers only hang with people like themselves seems only true in a very, very general way. I think blog readers tend to be interested in the particulars, difference, and to see others shine.

You think SC has kooks? Most of the famous serial killers have ties to my state too.

Well Britain has the most prolific serial killer ever - Harold Shipman.

Okay, this isn't a competition - or certainly shouldn't be...
