Delete?[edit]

Yes[edit]

  1. We have Bible belt, so this article is redundant, and more about US Politics in general rather than anything on-mission. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 15:25, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
  2. C&P from Conservapedia. If kept, give it a complete rewrite. Secret Squirrel (talk) 00:57, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

No[edit]

  1. The Bible Belt is not quite the same thing as "The South"; I don't consider them strictly synonymous. The current article could certainly stand improvement, though. (And even if the two were to be merged, it would make more sense for the main article to be "The South", not "The Bible Belt".) --OverworldTheme (talk) 01:49, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Goat[edit]

Merge to anything useful - although a lot of this is humdrum electoral history that few will miss. SophieWilderModerator 16:23, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Kept[edit]

Kept per RationalWiki:Articles for deletion/The South. SophieWilderModerator 12:51, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

The PC liberals are against stereotypes[edit]

Yet people in the south are racist.

There's far more closeted racism among rich honkies from the north. –Aleksandr(a) Ehrenstein, Jewish Bolshevik 23:55, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

Yes! Disprove your racism by using a racist epithet!Wackyvorlon (talk) 23:56, 6 September 2013 (UTC)
It's making fun of White people. That's allowed by the PC TOLSTAPO. –Aleksandr(a) Ehrenstein, Jewish Bolshevik 00:24, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Moved from the Saloon[edit]

I just recently visited the page on the South, and it says that it should be deleted because apparently the article on the Bible Belt is a more accurate description. Uh no, actually, it's not. I've lived in small town North Carolina my whole life, and contrary to what the stereotypes say, the Bible thumpers are actually pretty few and far between, at least here. For the love of God don't lump us all in with those people. Please, just don't. I feel that merging the article with the Bible Belt only perpetuates the myths that certain people (AKA the ones who've never actually been to this part of the country and are just repeating stereotypes that the rest of the country who've also never been here) also say. Yeah, we're not all dumbass redneck wingnuts people. It's genuinely hurtful and unfair that so many people seem to believe that. To those who do believe it, kindly pull your head out of your ass and realize that we Southerners are actually quite a diverse bunch, which can be expected of an area with tens of millions of residents.
