Carter Blasts Baptists

Atlanta, GA - At a press conference on Thursday, former president Jimmy Carter blasted Southern Baptists by saying, "Southern Baptists are the worst people in the history of this country."

When asked why this is the case, he said that Southern Baptists are "too legalistic, too intolerant, not loving enough, and do not have a good foreign policy."

Earlier this week, as he was promoting the sales of his new Sunday School pamphlets, Carter took an unprecedented shot at current President George W. Bush. Carter accused Bush of having the worst administration in the history of this country. He later admitted, off the record, that Bush's foreign policy was actually better than that of one other president - Jimmy Carter (see 1979: Iran, Afghanistan, Nicaragua, Moscow Olympics).

Now that Carter, a former president and former Southern Baptist, has made harsh statements about members of these two groups, other organizations have been put on the alert. The Boy Scouts of America, 4-H, the National Rifle Association, Habitat for Humanity, and Act Up (all former or current Carter clubs) are all bracing for a blast from the former president.

Charlton Heston, former president of the NRA, reportedly said of Carter, "Bring him on."
