So as a Christian, I've been bombarded lately by all of the recent controversy, and of all the things I'm annoyed about, it's the Confederate Freakout. It's come out of nowhere and is honestly rather pathetic. The run down of my opinion is this. You can not like the Confederacy. That's fine. You can hate their battle flag all you want. That's fine. I don't care either way about it. I just honestly think the issue shouldn't even be one.
But it's really gotten to an all time low. Just today I read Memphis' city council voted to remove a memorial and statue... ...and grave, of a confederate general.
...What. Is. Wrong. With. YOU?!
To anyone with a slight degree of morality, I would hope you would take issue with this. Ok, he was a Confederate. So? That's not a reason, dare I say a legal reason to tear up his grave people! It's wrong, wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong to violate a person's grave! You don't ever do that! Even if ghosts don't exist, answer me this: how would you feel about people tearing up your grave? You'd be angry right? I take issue with all of this because it just proves morality in this country isn't considered anymore.
Very little makes me angry anymore. But this people... ...this is just horridly wrong. When's it going to stop? Are you going to burn down every historic plantation? I'm pretty sure that counts as a Confederate landmark! How about some of the major buildings in the south? Pretty sure a lot of those are still around that are Confederate, better burn them down, am I right?
Everyone, just stop. Digging up the past, ripping open old wounds, this does nothing. To those of you who said pulling down the Confederate Flag was the beginning of the end or some nonsense like that, you've ended and begun nothing. It's sad, pathetic even to think that after all this time, our country still broils over the same emotional garbage, the same divisions, and the same problems. We may have put an end to the slavery, but if we can't let go of our emotional attachments to something from so long ago, racism will never die. Because it's this stuff, digging up the past when it should stay buried, that prevents the death of these social issues. It's our fault. And we need to stop.
