Less Hell, More Angels

This is a short documentary about tolerance, bikers, and brotherhood. At the Blessing of the Bikes in Gautier, MS, I witnessed southern Christian motorcycle clubs do something alarming. They engendered brotherhood, seemingly oblivious to the fact that they were recklessly exploding cherished clichés about The South. Is everything better, and is Mississippi one giant nexus of harmony? No. But, man oh man, there sure seems to be a lot more love in the deep South than you hear about. And why is that? I guess it’s because we obsess about what’s broken, to the point that we sometimes become myopic, ignoring the love that’s also out there… and which is also part of the truth. ”

Quote of the day

Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.
