First the Chrisitian Exodus (ChristianExodus.org) wants South Carolina to leave the union to become an independent Christian country. Now some idiot wants the University of South Carolina to drop the gamecocks as their mascot. Oh boy, they say since cockfighting is illegal USC should not have them as a mascot. Apparently since it brings up cruelty issues as well as association with other illegal activites such as drugs and illegal gambling. USC has been around since 1801. Suddenly, it should change their mascot? Maybe Clemson University should drop the Tiger as its mascot in light of the recent mauling of a teenage girl. Maybe Southern Cal should drop the Trojan as its mascot. Dont want to offend the ancient Romans, or the condom industry. I think I am going to be sick.
