Mailbox evangelism in Aiken, South Carolina
It seems one of those damnable "activisit" federal judges done denied the state of South Carolina the privilege of placing the words, "I Believe," on the state's vehicle license plates. Something about separation of church or state, I think.
Well, let me tell ya, that got Scot Newcom truly pissed off, Scot being a good christianist and all. Now Scot also happens to be the circulation director of The Aiken Standard right there in Aiken, South Carolina.
So, he got the idea from somewhere that he ought to put together newspaper boxes with the words, "I Believe" on them which good christianist folks could put up in front of their houses. Scot is such a good christianist he'd rather advertise his faith than his newspaper, so "I Believe" is where the newspaper's name would normally be.
Newcom says, righteously, that Christian people should have the right to share their faith with others.
[Nobody said they couldn't do that, of course; just that they couldn't do it on state license plates, which seems reasonable to most sane people.]
Anyway, if y'all live in Aiken and are achin' to get in on this christianist mailbox evangelism, just call up ol' Scot and tell him y'all want one of them mailboxes and send him a check for just $13 buckeroos and your all set!
