Puritan Board Freshman
To me this indicates that a lot of southern allegiance to Christian values is bound up in an affinity for the past and not Christianity for its own sake. There may be a historical connection between the confederacy and southern Christianity, but there is no necessary logical connection between a flag from a war 160 years ago fought in large part to defend the institution of slavery and obedience to the law of God in not killing babies. Northern conservatives were on the other side of that war and we hate abortion too.Confederate Flag gone today, voting Democrat tomorrow. Just look at my Georgia right now. We removed our heritage from our flag back when I was in elementary school. Now, less than two decades later, our state is on the cusp of giving 16 electoral votes to a baby-slaughtering communist.
