Can we STAR WARS fans all take over Marin County, then?

Lynn Sislo points out something funny: a group calling itself Christian Exodus is apparently hatching a scheme to move enough evengelical Christians to a single state to force secession from the Union, at which point they'll establish their very own Christian nation. You know, like Texas only with better border patrol. I say, more power to 'em. And I hope that the Christian Exodus plays out like the Hebrew one of two and a half thousand years ago. Like, maybe when President Kerry or whomever calls out the National Guard to put down the secession movement, Pat Robertson will part the Everglades.

Of course, in learning of this scheme I'm immediately reminded of the equally-loony Libertarian version of the idea, which I blogged about a year ago. Sadly, it appears that if both projects reach their full fruition, we won't be able to see the fireworks if both states were next to one another. The Christian Exodus has singled out Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina as its possibilities, while New Hampshire is slated to become the future Realm of Liberatopia. Oh well.
