It is funny to me how that democrats, liberals, leftists, and most elements of the media have suddenly become shocked and appalled about old statues of Confederate Generals, but at the same time fall on their knees in worship and adoration for images and statues of people like Margaret Sanger, Charles Darwin, and Senator Robert Byrd. Their complaint, as if they had just recently learned this, is that the Confederates were racist slaveholders.
Take a look at some of the heroes of liberals and ask why they worship these, who were actually much more racist than any Confederate General. Charles Darwin wrote in his book, The Descent of Man, that dark skinned Africans were inferior to Caucasians and were closer to Apes in the “evolutionary chain.”
Margaret Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood, and is exalted by the same people who are currently condemning Confederates of the past. Just read Sanger’s views of those of African ancestry. She referred to them as the “unfit race of human weeds.” Her promotion of abortion involved her view that what she called “inferior people” should be “weeded out” of humanity. The liberals love her.
Democratic Senator Robert Byrd served over 50 years in the Senate. He has been honored with a huge statue in the state capitol of West Virginia. He was among the strongest opponents of the passage of the civil rights movement of 1964. Byrd was a recruiter for, and a leader in the KKK. He wrote in 1944, “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.” I wonder why the leftists aren’t bothered about the multiple statues honoring the legacy of Senator Byrd?
Bible believers understand that there are no “superior” of “inferior” races, but that we are all of one race, the human race. We know that, “red and yellow, brown, olive, black and white and all the shades in between,” we are all sinners whose only hope is in the mercy and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ to save those who repent and believe on Him for salvation and deliverance. Amen.
