    Happy Robert E Lee Day

    Today is Robert E Lee Day in some states. Lee is deserving of such recognition because of his record ?

    Today is also MLK Day, MLK is deserving of such recognition because of his record of elevating Christian principles to apply them to the problems facing society, for his unwavering recognition of human dignity, for is tireless work in defending those facing injustice, for his modern interpretation of the faith for the twentieth century.

    King associated with communists. The holiday is a black holiday and not one recognizing all Americans. King was a rabble rouser who cost states money and provoked violent reactions wherever he went.

    Oh, but I wish that were true today.

    And Lee said his chief concern was to be a humble and earnest Christian. And lived out that desire by whipping recaptured slaves, allowed (encouraged?) his soldiers to kidnap free and escaped blacks to sell, rejected prisoner swaps of it included black soldiers, noted blacks were ill disposed for work and lacked intellectual capacity for full participation in civic life.

    A fine Christian gentleman deserving to be honored.

    And King was a serial adulterer even possibly participating in orgies. A fine Christian gentleman deserving honor...

    I said nothing in defense of Lee.

    True. But my post used ideas of Lee, yours used ideas of King. Both were Christian gentlemen.

    Do you think Lee is worthy of the honor of a holiday?

    Yes. It says a lot about Christians, especially Baptists, that they would so easily be drawn into sexual deviancy, of orgies, at a religiously themed workshop.

    From the evidence, at best he was a unwitting puppet of the USSR, who used him to stir up division and weaken the US.
    Trump is basically "Bruce Wayne pretending to be a foppish retarded billionaire" tier genius, in case nerds need a simpler metaphor.

    Civil rights is a commie plot! I suppose that Letter from a Birmingham Jail is a Trotskyite propaganda?

    I read the speeches and writings, and look at his actions, and see a committed and courageous Christian, whose thought was formed by, and informed by, the Christian faith.

    The point is I do believe that Lee was a committed Christian with a blind spot when it came to slavery, just as King had a blind spot when it came to infidelity.
