The hate ignorance continues….

The hate ignorance continues….

Saint John’s Episcopal Church located Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn, New York as joined the hysteria sweeping the nation.  This hysteria is manifesting after 152 years of dormancy.   

Between 1842 and 1847 General Robert E. Lee was stationed at Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn (NY). 
During this period General Lee donated a maple tree to be placed in front of Saint John’s Episcopal Church in Forth Hamilton.   Note the American Civil War or as it is known in the south, “The War of Northern Aggression” was between 1861 and 1865. 

At the outbreak of the war General Lee joined the Southern troops, the Confederacy.  Following what his native state of Virginia did by joining the Confederacy.  During this period in American history people consider themselves citizens of and loyal to the state of their birth and /or lived it. 

In 1912, forty-seven years after the end of that war a plaque was placed in front of the tree.  The inscription read:

This tree was planted by
General Robert Edward Lee
While stationed at
Fort Hamilton
From 1842-1847
The tree has been restored
And this tablet placed upon it
By the New York Chapter
United Daughters of the Confederacy
April 1912

In 1912 the war was still fresh in the minds of the American people.  That will be equivalent to an event that happened in 1970 to this year 2017. What is remarkable the war being so fresh in the minds of the American people there was a chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy in New York, the epicenter the “northern aggression,” the Union’s North, Yankees all.  In 1912 this Confederate chapter was tolerated in New York, while in today’s America the word “tolerant” is only allowed if approved by the politically correct subversives.   

In 1912 with the war in recent memory the people of New York had no problem with the chapter of the United Daughter of the Confederacy being in their midst, so why 105 years after the memorial was placed, and 152 years after the end of the Civil War, that memorial is a problem?   

The Church removed the memorial.  Bishop Lawrence Provenzano of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island was quoted as saying,

“I think it is the responsible thing for us to do.”

Does that mean for the past 105 years the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island has not been doing the “responsible thing?”  Should there be consequences for not being responsible for over a century? 

Truth is the Episcopal Diocese allowed it to be bullied by the politically correct gangsters.
