I don't really have anything left to add on this one. All I can say is I'm glad I never moved to the south. I think I'd lose hope for humanity after a week there.
EDIT: I just wanted to quote the same quote Damon Fowler wrote on his facebook page. It seems appropriate.
"And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly."
