I recently read a very interesting, and brave, editorial from Bill Donohue of the Catholic League. It appeared on AFA’s national news service - One News Now. He points out the contradiction in the efforts to remove statues all across America because of how the culture now views the words or actions of certain individuals which can often cloud how they are remembered today for their larger contributions.

Tax-funded propagandists in media and academia across Illinois are demonizing the historic 1776 Report report on the public's dime, without offering any examples of errors or inaccuracies among the facts presented by President Donald J. Trump's 1776 Commission.

The nation's educational establishment is responsible for current chaos and lack of restraint...
Statues depicting prominent figures in U.S. history have been coming down across the nation.

There are many recent developments in the godless West.... These are all inevitable consequences of the death of belief in God and Judeo-Christian values, and of the Bible as society's primary moral reference work.
Until her release [last week], Kim Davis, the clerk of rural Rowan County, Kentucky, was confined to a jail cell because she refused to issue marriage licenses over her name to same-sex couples. She has been pilloried in the media for “lawlessness” and compared not to Martin Luther King Jr. for her civil disobedience but to Governor George Wallace of Alabama.

Last Thursday I had the opportunity to see the new Abraham Lincoln movie from Steven Spielberg. It was a technical and visual masterpiece in terms of costume, cast, scenery, computer graphics, etc. Sally Field was remarkable as Mary Lincoln. However, I agree with several historians who criticized the movie’s script, which included nearly 40 uses of profanity. They contend that certain vulgar words were not used in the 1860’s and certainly not by “honest Abe.”
