Bible Belt

From dKosopedia

The Bible Belt is the part of the United States where strict fundamentalist Christianity dominates life. If you don’t do fundy Christian things like them and aren’t a fundy Christian they tell you that you are going to Hell. Then they try and make life Hell on Earth for you. This happens especially in the smaller towns and villages.

While the Bible Belt is often considered synonomous with the American South, many people will consider themselves from the Bible Belt if their particular town or family followed a Bible Belt-style existence.


The buckle

Many different places try to claim to be the "buckle of the Bible Belt," usually intended to mean the most fundamentalist part. Kentucky, Ohio, and Georgia are sometimes considered contenders, but many people also claim that the Florida panhandle is the strongest part.

The rest of the world

Up to the 1990s, people in other countries could say, “It’s sad. Religious people in some parts of the United States are crazy. It’s nothing to do with us and we can’t do anything about it.” That's not so today, in the modern world of the Internet.
