Casey is of the class of 93 Collinsville Alabama where Ive known him since 86. His father is a former Mayor. I think it fair to say the pastor there since 76 and wife, John and Gloria Morgan are the spiritual political godparents of Casey especially on abortion. But three of their four sons resist Mattox super charged right wing politics, in particular the openly gay son Matthew, a Yale Div School Graduate. Others named shortly but the list also includes in the county, the FBC Ft Payne product Cherilynne Crowe, a Samford and Vanderbilt grad, now on staff with the Baptist Church State group for religious liberty with historic DC offices.

Could be a sixty Minutes show before this is all over given the Hispanic influence in the town and the implications for the valedictorian and salutatorian of CHS 2013, both undocumented when they walked. The fetus or DACA justice, spotlight on Gloria Morgan, who did a lot of things right and was faithful to the world she was raised in, a prayer warrior who with Casey and three of her four sons should begin an immediate read of Robert Jones, White Too Long, to see if they missed something along the way.

God Bless America, My Lincoln Republican Grandfather Jordan, and Judge Frank Johnson. I could be mistaken but I am convinced those two join me in opposing Amy Coney and Casey Mattox and Gloria Morgan on this Supreme Court Nomination and the Way it is going Down!!!!!

Casey shares the political world of Yellowhammer News which is buttressing the campaign of Tommy Tuberville in Alabama. In some exchanges with Scott Samson a yesterday I used the world miscreant. Somebody reported me and I had my comment privileges across Facebook stymied for three days. What follows was my comment somebody at Yellowhammer used to stifle me

No hate, apparently you are not aware of Dorothy Day or Bonhoeffer. My first cousin's wife is Devout Catholic of the ACB stripe with a PHD on the works of Tolkien We have civil unflinching conversations often. You are the miscreant in this exchange. Check goodfaithmedia.org daily for enlightenment in the Christian Way.

Collinsville Prayer Walk ten 15

Postby Stephen Fox » Thu Oct 15, 2020 10:55 am

My comment on the facebook page of organizer, Trinka Gorham Payton

For the Soul of America I am praying for the defeat of Donald Trump and Tommy Tuberville and that Amy Coney Barrett stand down till the election is decided to honor the wishes of a Great Jew Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. From my wide reading of the authentic Baptist view of the separation of church and state, Amy Coney Barrett is wrong and seeks a preference for fundamentalism. I pray too as did my Mother and my Sister and first cousin Tim wood and we are not bamboozled by the likes of Franklin Graham and Bob Jeffress the pastor of FBC Dallas and we may be voting differently than Gloria Morgan. Our Christian Baptist views are more in line with Mark Wilson of Auburn the Ex Director of Collinsville Libraries network to the Auburn University's Living Democracy. See Miss Peacock's statement there about Collinsville recently promoted by Collinsville High School. Please leave this posted in Jesus name. Thank you


This after the day there was a feature in Bham News on Dekalb Co Bama, mommas home county, as Tuberville Country.

White Trash in Collinsville

Postby Stephen Fox » Sat Feb 06, 2021 11:22 am

There is one family that came to mind in a facebook dustup this last week that pretty much resonate with all 27 words for White Trash in the book by the same name of a few years ago.

My favorite is offscouring of the KJV and the Thomas Hardy Jude that I may have somebody invoke at my funeral or memorial service when my time comes.

Most of have extensions of the family that fall somewhere within the following essay, and I wanted to give it notice while near at hand

Better oolitics for Collinsville

Postby Stephen Fox » Fri Aug 20, 2021 3:53 pm

Im in facebook time out for seven days and could not leave the following comment on a Collinsville facebook page

good history but church of the Highlands is gonna have to come up with a better politician than Phil Williams a Trump complicitor if the country is to rebound. Christians should pay attention to Fox News, and school board members and local leaders should know their American History which in Collinsville would include reading Jill Lepore's These Truths, Azar Nafisi's This Republic of Imagination,, Ed Bridges Bicentennial History of Alabama especially the chapter on the Civil War and the distorted teaching of the Daughters of the Confederacy in textbooks of public high schools for a hundred year. Single issue voting on abortion has got to go, there has to be more political discernment which in collinsville would mean all christians put at the top of their list a Clean DACA Bill which is 25 years overdue.

Casey Mattox transparency only goes so far

Postby Stephen Fox » Wed Sep 15, 2021 10:55 am

The stepchild on matters of abortion and fundamentalist politics, Mattox a spiritual stepchild of John and Gloria Morgan transparency only goes so far in light of the Balmer, Edsall piece today in the NY Times. Balmer was a visiting proff at Yale for Matt Morgan, the third son of the Morgans.

I think it safe to say three of Morgan's son, John and Matt of UVA and Mark of Duke, are pro choice if you ask the right questions. And Daughter in law Susan had a first cousin who worked for 20 years for Planned Parenthood in Georgia, a product of the Westminster Prez PCUSA in Greenville SC
