Hell, a place where all good things are banned, but are performed in excess by the people that banned them
I realized I was in bible belt hell when the preacher that lead the campaign to stay a dry county was arrested for DUI, having an eight ball, and a tranny hooker on his way to church to condemn all the evil sinners

An area of the U.S., primarily the South, that has an enormously large number of Protestants. It's also a stereotypical term that recognizes the far southern United States for its faith, morals and huge presence of Protestant denominations including the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), the world’s largest Protestant denomination. This stereotype paints people in the region as Rednecks, NASCAR lovers, radical Bible thumpers, and narrowminded bigots.

The Bible Belt stereotype is most prevalent in rural areas of the South, however.
