obamaWhether Barack Obama is a Christian or not has been a raging debate for years. He claims he is a Christian, but continues to offer praise for Islam. Few people ever see him visiting a church today, but we do know that he spent two decades attending the church of the most radical pastor in American, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, who blamed America for the 9/11 attacks and regularly spewed anti-Semitic, anti-white and anti-American rhetoric. Needless to say, the President’s foundations as a Christian are troubling.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
