A Baptist Looks At Mardi Gras In the Bible Belt

A good column here at Mardi Gras Culture in Bible Belt America . He makes some interesting points . Of course I never found the Baptist culture down here to be that Purtitan anyway.

Now of course for the local Catholic inhabitants (and Protestant) Mardi Gras is not the roman like orgy one sees on Bourbon street engaged in by some tourists. It is always a lot more of a family affair and much more moderated than what one would see on a Girl Gone Wild (New Orleans edition).
