Thread Name: Steve Earle takin' heat for new song
Subject: RE: BS: Steve Earle takin' heat for new song
McGrath. The idiom "dink" where I come from is synonomous with, say " asshole". I wasn't aware that in some parts of the world the term "dink' might actually be a racial epithet. (My apologies if that offended anyone who might be referred to as that by some racist asshole!)My point was that in the entries prior to mine (and others at this site from time to time) I have noticed a tendency to stereotype Christians as intolerant jerks.

Is there a link somewhere to a site where we can check out the Earle lyric in question? sb
