Tribalism: The Confessions of a Campbellite from Carrollton

Tribalism.

Denominational Protestant Christianity; bible thumping ideology of the Church of Christ. Every good Campbellite knows that there are no other Christians, there are no other saved ones, there are no other saints, and there is no other spiritual kingdom; save for them that are members of the Church of Christ. Immersion, not sprinkling, for the remission of sins, and for no reason other. If baptized any other way, or for any other reason, then your baptism did not get you saved, it just got you wet!

Tribalism

Of course, Muslims are more lost than Baptists and Methodists. But they are all lost nonetheless, unless they repent and are immersed into the Church of Christ.

Tribalism

Be true to your school! Trojans before Lions, and Eagles before Vikings. Depending on what part of town you are from. The Battle of the Spike, Texas-OU weekend, and win one for the Gipper!! RAH! RAH!! RAH!!! Go home team, win, win, win!! Down with the vile visitors from the other side! Boo!! Hiss!!!

Tribalism

All us kids from Carrollton knew this joke back in the day. Question: What does FBI stand for? Answer: FBI stands for a “Farmers Branch Idiot” Ha! Ha! Ha! The joke’s on you!!

Tribalism

An observation while watching a movie at the Plaza Theatre back in the day. Question: Why are all the black kids and their families sitting in the balcony at the rear of the theatre? Answer: Because they are black, and their families know that they are supposed to sit in the balcony at the back of the theatre.

Tribalism

Elephant or Donkey; of whose tribe are ye? Choose ye this day, but choose wisely; like me! It’s one or the other, Red State or Blue. Unless heaven forbid, say it ain’t so. You’re no Socialist are ye? O no no no!! Vote for the corporate puppet of your choice, it’s your constitutional right. Red State or Blue State; Elephant or Ass.

Tribalism

Blue or Gray, North or South, Poor or Rich, Gay or normal, homosexual or homo sapien, lazy or ambitious, successful or failure, lost or saved, Texas or some other insignificant State, the USA or some other insignificant country.

Tribalism

Choose ye this day whose god ye shall serve, whether the wrong god or mine, but choose ye you must!
