The enemies of Christ are hard at work to remove any and all Christian influence from our country, which was founded on Christian principles and a reliance on Jesus Christ.  

School children are being taught that George Washington crossed the Delaware and chopped down a cherry tree, but not that he was a Christian.  They are not being told what he had to say about God, Jesus Christ, or the Bible.  This is not only true of George Washington, but of nearly all of the founders and early leaders of our country.  Most were Christians who put their trust and faith in God.  We know that, because they said so.  However, this is not being taught to our children even though it's true.  And, why?  Because it isn't politically correct and some non-Christian might claim to be  offended. 

For generations we've been taught that Abraham Lincoln was a great man who saved the country and freed the slaves.  Scores of people, misled by erroneous teaching, have visited his statue in Washington, D.C. to pay homage to his image as if he were some god in a Greek temple.  Of course, we know him to have been a tyrant who's inflated ego, poor judgment, and illegal acts caused the death of over six hundred thousand Americans and immeasurable suffering.

At the same time, honorable, Christian men like Robert E. Lee, T.J. "Stonewall" Jackson, and all of our Confederate generals, who fought to save the country and it's constitution, have been vilified and called traitors.  Our brave and noble Confederate forefathers are being called a "racist army."  Our proud Southern heritage is being mocked and our legacy shamed by those whose only interest is self promotion.  They pick fights and find fault in what is true and right in order to increase the audience of  their radio or television programs, or add to the readership of their newspaper columns or websites.  They criticize and attack what is honorable and true, while they have no honor and care nothing for truth.  
Southern states who asked their young men to leave their homes and families to go to war to defend it against a terrorist invasion, and now refuse to honor their sacrifice because it isn't politically correct are a disgrace.  Southerners who have bought in to the Union lies and will not seek or accept the truth even when it's presented to them, because of what someone might think, are a shame and unworthy of their own heritage.  

The Sons of Confederate Veterans has been given the "defense of the Confederate soldier's good name," and "the guardianship of his history."  As such we may get mad and upset at these self-serving hypocritical bigots that attack our noble Southern heritage and brave Confederate forefathers, but I firmly believe God is for us, and the Bible tells us in Romans 8:31, "If God be for us, who can be against us?"
