Let's All Move to Whiteville!

Posted By on Fri, Oct 7, 2011 at 8:40 AM

Man, we should all move to Whiteville, where people who aren't Christian or who aren't the right kind of Christian are totally welcome!

Oh, did I say "welcome"? I meant, if you think that placing a cross on top of the public water tower is tacky at best and a violation of everyone in the community's First Amendment rights, you "need to pack and move." That's "pack and move" away from Whiteville, obviously, not toward it.

But all is not lost. Now that Whiteville has to take down the cross from atop their water tower, they do need something eye-catching to put on the water tower instead.

"'Whiteville is a religious town.' — Mayor James Bellar" would be an appropriate warning to anyone who might accidentally find the town outside of Memphis charming or friendly. No, clearly, if you're the kind of person, Christian or not, who thinks that one-town theocracies are scary, Whiteville is not the place for you.
