Possum is a harmonious blend of generously marbled white and dark meat that tastes like a subtle combination of lambchops and grizzly bear brisket. Some of my Appalachian-American relatives prefer to marinate it for 24 hours in mountain dew, white lightning, Tennessee branch water, or one of the many other varieties of moonshine, but never do that if you plan to grill the possum. Uncle Nate once put a PGA- (pure grain alcohol) soaked possum on the grill and a couple of minutes later the lid blew off and went all the way through the roof of the gazebo. (Actually, itâs single-wide trailer, but if a girlified boy can insist on being called âher,â then I reckon we can call a trailer a gazebo if we want to.)

Dolores wrote, âThe early Christians met in homes, hid in Catacombs, had meetings by the river.â That ainât how we do it here in Mississippi, Miss Dolores. We meet at Waffle House, or Dennyâs, or Golden Corral. We think weâre persecuted when the Methodists beat us to the buffet line. We do sometimes meet by the river, but itâs just to run our trotlines. But at least we donât have a rock band at our church, and we donât think biscuits and sweet tea should be the elements of the Lordâs supper. The average member of these boogie woogie churches donât even know what it means to be saved, so one of them leaving âthe faithâ isnât really leaving much of anything.
The same Jesus who said âFollow me, and I will make you fishers of menâ also said âHim that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.â Isnât it wonderful that the Master Fisherman never throws any back?
Do you mean the same Jimmy Carter who recently let a sodomite help lead his Sunday school class, Jiminy? The Jimmy Carter who is a âChristianâ who supports gay marriage? No thanks. Heâs a joke and, like all liberals including yourself, not a very funny one.
Jim, you know that Trump is perfect in every wayâif you donât believe it, just ask him. Youâre just insanely jealous because you arenât infallible like he is. If heâs reelected, maybe you can get a job helping him draft some of his profound and incisive tweets. I know that would give you the sense of fulfillment you are so obviously lacking. Donât hate the man just because he has super powers that are absent in your own life. If you work hard and keep your nose clean, at least you may someday rise above your current position as a rat groomer.
In 1799, Jedediah Morse said, âWhenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of governmentâand all blessings which flow from themâmust fall with them.â We have already witnessed the collapse of the pillars, and the building is falling all around us. God save America.
