They’re off like a herd of turtles: In Florida "Redneck" is a religion

from the Smoking Gun
This directly from the Smoking Gun:

"Suspect Joshua Lee Joehlin told cops that he is a member of the “Redneck” faith. Joehlin, a 20-year-old Texan, was busted early Sunday morning on a felony charge of engaging in a lewd and lascivious act with a minor. Joehlin is being held in the Manatee County jail in lieu of $10,000 bond."

For the record here is the Wikipedia definition of a redneck:

"Originally used in reference to poor, white farmers, redneck is a historically derogatory slang term to refer to working class Southerners in the United States.[1] It is similar in meaning to "cracker" (especially regarding Georgia and Florida), "hillbilly" (especially regarding Appalachia and the Ozarks)[2] and "white trash".
