Why Biloxi's Original Sin™???
In the Bible Belt, the Gulf Coast is considered a sinful environment. Biloxi, the third oldest city in the United States, founded in 1699, has always had a smuggler's past. A port of entry and base for pirates, rum runners, drug smugglers, and similar disreputable types.
Gambling is nothing new to Biloxi, but now it's legal, confined by religion to the heritage of our shores. Evangelical and other religious leaders have publicly stated that the sins and negative karma we have created have brought the Wrath Of God upon Biloxi with Hurricane Katrina, an event predicted by many in the Bible Belt.
The Bible states that sin comes from freedom of choice, such as the unbridled free spirit of Biloxi. Born in Biloxi with a family history that predates the Civil War, I can agree our history is colorful, for the good and the bad. I will never be able to shake it off. I, like my father, his father, and our forefathers before us, was born with Biloxi's Original Sin™.
