In Some Parts Of The U.S. "Redneck" Is Actually Considered A Religion

While certainly no experts on spiritual matters, until today we were unaware of the existence of a religion being practiced in the South.

As seen in the above excerpt from a Bradenton (Florida) Police Department report, suspect Joshua Lee Joehlin told cops that he is a member of the “Redneck” faith.

Joehlin, a 20-year-old Texan, was busted early Sunday morning on a felony charge of engaging in a lewd and lascivious act with a minor. Joehlin, pictured at left, is being held in the Manatee County jail in lieu of $10,000 bond.

Yeah! And commas, semicolons, and the other trappings of proper grammar are all part of Obama's communist plot to make us not look like drooling mouthbreathers. Makes me so mad I could randomly capitalize a word or two!
He's very clever. He's already planning for his defense. His lawyer will probably claim he was exercising his freedom of religion. Everyone knows the Redneck religion has a younger age of consent than normal society (and cousins aren't off-limits either).
Another version of Red Neck is : I saw on a calendar by Jeff Foxworthy , that said, "You might be a Red Neck" if when asked for your ID you show your Belt Buckle and "You Might Be a Red Neck "if you think great entertainment is drinking beer on a summer night while watching bugs get zapped in an electirc bug trap!
Redneck isn't a race it is a lifestyle.
Redneck is also a sub-race, just like Red-bone is a sub-race. Redneck is some one who is part Native-American and European. Red-bone is some one who is part Native-American and part Sub-Sharian-African. The people of the Crown first came up with the term Redneck they meant it as it is still taken today, which is derogatory; except by a lot of Rednecks.
Well, I'd rather be a Southerner. (Not too many liberals down here.)
Redneck is a skilled position, to be a redneck you must be able to:1. Fix a Ford; 2. Fish and hunt sucessfully;3. Know who won last week in NASCAR; 4. Know all SEC coaches; 5. Launch your boat from a boat ramp, with your wife's help, without getting a divorce. There are no life skills required to be a Yankee couch potato. Tuger
Redneck is the last group of people that the racist can attack that is still politically correct. You cannot call any other group racist names without being called down. When you use the term “Redneck,” YOU are being ignorant. YOU are being a RACIST! Now, if someone wants to call themselves a Redneck, then I guess it’s like the blacks calling themselves the “n” word. But other people using it derogatorily, that is Racism.
I guess they ask what religion, so in case you are muslim, we can be "sensitive."
Why is there a place for identifying religion on the police report? A crime is a crime. I don't care what your religion is and neither should the government.
