Mississippi Glows for Christ

For those of you who are on Twitter and want a glimpse into what evangelical fundamentalist Christianity looks like in Mississippi, check out the following hashtag: #msglowingforchrist when you have a chance. Evidently, the practice of Christians in Mississippi carrying large crosses through town is common enough to have its own hashtag.

I addressed this bizarre practice here before. I have seen it a few times, but I had no idea it was as common as it appears to be. If the tweets using this hashtag are any indication, many of these Christians really seem to think that taking a turn carrying a large cross is doing something for Jesus. Fascinating!
