A timeline on the War Between the States and the issue of slavery:

The War is popularly dated to have begun on April 12th, 1861.

The Emancipation Proclamation was not issued by Lincoln until January 1, 1863.

Maryland, a Union state, did not end slavery until the adoption of a new State Constitution on November 1st, 1864.

Missouri, which never officially seceeded from the Union, abolished slavery by statute on January 11, 1865.

On April 9, 1865, near Appomattox Court House, Virginia, Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his Army of Northern Virginia to Union General Ulysses S. Grant.

Delaware, a Union state, rejected the 13th and 14th Amendments, and slavery ended there only when the 13th Amendment took effect nationally in December, 1865.

Kentucky, which never officially seceeded from the Union, rejected the 13th Amendment, and slavery ended there only when it took effect nationally in December, 1865.

The War Between the States was never about slavery, and this simple timeline should be proof enough of that.

The following article is from the newspaper Jewish Post & Opinion, published June 28, 1968:

BOSTON —A political scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who has been speaking to Jewish conventions over the past few months, told the Reform Rabbis meeting here that Jews are not white.

Mayor's Comments on Battle of Liberty Place Monument Removal

Mayor Mitch Landrieu sounds like a Social Justice Warrior as he held a news conference on the early-morning removal of the Battle of Liberty Place monument in New Orleans. He even borrowed quotes from the Bible so that he may sound holy while promoting his Marxist agenda.

Christianity, the South, and the Culture War

By Rev. Steve Wilkins

Culture implies far more than common food, dress, or accent. The root of our English word "culture" is the Latin "cultus," which to the Romans signified worship of the divine. This reminds us of the foundation of culture which is so often forgotten in our day. As Russell Kirk has noted, "[C]ulture arises from the cult; that is, people are joined together in worship, and out of their religious association grows the organized human community."1

Culture implies a common way of life, common standards, a common worldview, if you will. But this commonality is founded ultimately not upon economic status, race, or nationality, but, as the word indicates, a common faith. Christopher Dawson puts it this way, "It is clear that a common way of life involves a common view of life, common standards of behavior, and common standards of value, and consequently a culture is a spiritual community which owes its unity to common beliefs and common ways of thought far more than to any unanimity of physical type.... Therefore from the beginning the social way of life which is culture has been deliberately ordered and directed in accordance with the higher laws of life which are religion."2
