Christian Rally Set For SC State House

“AMAZING GRACE” EVENT TO HONOR MOTHER EMANUEL VICTIMS, THEIR FAMILIES || By FITSNEWS ||  Countless story lines have emerged in the aftermath of last month’s horrific, racially motivated “Holy City Massacre” – the mass murder of nine black churchgoers at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in downtown Charleston, S.C.  But none is more…


|| By FITSNEWS ||  Countless story lines have emerged in the aftermath of last month’s horrific, racially motivated “Holy City Massacre” – the mass murder of nine black churchgoers at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in downtown Charleston, S.C.  But none is more amazing that the forgiveness offered by the families of the victims to the 21-year-old white supremacist who gunned their relatives down.

This website doesn’t beat our Bible (in fact our libertarian views routinely compel us to denounce Bible thumpers), but there’s really only one place such forgiveness can come from … just as there’s only one place the evil that started all this can come from.

So it’s fitting an “Amazing Grace” rally is being held in honor of these families … and the loved ones they lost.

Next week’s rally will be held on Monday, July 6, 2015 in the first floor rotunda of the S.C. State House – between governor Nikki Haley and lieutenant governor Henry McMaster‘s offices.  Organizers say the event – which comes as lawmakers take up a bill to remove the Confederate flag from the grounds of the State House – will feature “a diverse group of Christians who will gather for the simple purpose of celebrating the grace of Jesus and gospel witness demonstrated by the families of the victims of the Emanuel shooting.”

Leaders from multiple Christian denominations – including the African Methodist Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Southern Baptist Convention, the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, the Roman Catholic Church, the Presbyterian Church in America, the Church of God in Christ, the United Methodist Church and others – are participating.

Interested in attending?  The rally begins at 9:00 a.m. EDT.

“horrific, racially motivated ”

All you readers that decided to play the game go ahead and do another shot.

I know, you’re drunk already and don’t want to, but if you volunteered to play then it’s a matter of keeping your reputation in tact.

Since this “massacre” was “horrific”, I am still waiting for Folks to enlighten me on the massacres that are non-horrific.

Isn’t everyday a christian rally on at the SC statehouse?

Intelligent-less July 3, 2015 at 10:04 am

FIRST: “This website doesn’t beat our Bible”…THEN: ” but there’s really only one place such forgiveness can come from”….Are you THAT stupid, or do you think other people are? You make a claim, then immediately contradict yourself. You have to be really stupid to be a liberal, or follow a liberal’s teachings.
I guess being Being a Democrat means you can say the most mindless things, and the idiots you’re catering to, gobble it up, regardless.

Squishy123 July 3, 2015 at 11:12 am

What? When did this shooting happen? Was anyone hurt?

The problem with the media is they milk every emotional story to death to the point where it’s just another fucking story about the event.

euwe max July 3, 2015 at 11:13 am

The problem with Republicans…. well, you know.

Squishy123 July 3, 2015 at 11:15 am

If those damn Democrats wouldn’t have put the flag up in the first place…

euwe max July 3, 2015 at 11:16 am

I know… racist bastards.. I wish they’d have stayed in the fucking Democrat party, so they’d have to take responsibility.

The “solid south” Democratic voting pattern began to break down not in the 1960s in response to civil rights but in the 1950s in response to economic development and the Cold War. (Black voters in the north, who had been reliable Republicans, began to abandon the GOP in response to the New Deal, encouraged by activists like Robert Vann to “turn Lincoln’s picture to the wall. That debt has been paid in full.”) In the 1940s, the GOP garnered only about 25 percent of southern votes. The big break came with Eisenhower’s victories. Significant percentages of white southerners voted for Ike even though the Democratic party remained firmly segregationist and even though Eisenhower backed two civil-rights bills and enforced the Brown decision by federalizing the National Guard. They also began to send GOP representatives to the House.

I always love the history rewriters. People who look at something years later and interpret it when there is plenty of contemporaneous.information, by people who were actually there. For example Lee Atwater on the Republican Southern Strategy,

“You start out in 1954, by saying nigger, nigger, nigger. By 1968, you can’t say nigger, that hurts you, back-fires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states rights, and all that stuff and you’re getting so abstract. Now you’re talking about cutting taxes. We want to cut this is much more abstract than even the busing thing and a hell of a lot more abstract than nigger, nigger.”

So go sell your revisionist history to people in the wingnut echo chamber. No one is stupid enough to believe you any more.

Republicans aren’t in denial about the migration of racists into the Republican party – they’re simply scum.

guest July 3, 2015 at 11:48 am

These Republican gains came not from the most rural and “deep south” regions, but rather from the newer cities and suburbs. If the new southern Republican voters were white racists, one would have expected Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia to be the first to turn. Instead, as Gerard Alexander notes in “The Myth of the Racist Republicans,” the turn toward the GOP began in Virginia, North Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, and Florida. Eisenhower did best in the peripheral states. Alexander concludes: “The GOP’s southern electorate was not rural, nativist, less educated, afraid of change, or concentrated in the . . . Deep South. It was disproportionately suburban, middle-class, educated, young, non-native southern, and concentrated in the growth points that were the least ‘Southern’ parts of the south.”

no myth… all you have to do is look around. Where are the racists? Rubbing elbows with liberals?

What a bunch of crap.

Maybe they can get The Kenyan to show up and lead a sing along.

euwe max July 3, 2015 at 11:13 am

Squishy123 July 3, 2015 at 11:14 am

The losers, you mean in the shooting? Its going to take a while, someone’s going to need to bring some shovels.

no, you know.. the white war hero who graduated next to last in his class and the snow ditz… and the white guy from Kolob with the magic underwear, and the munster kid.

I contend that Liberalism is a personality disorder. Every personality disorder is based in Narcissism. Liberals are individuals who worship at their own altars. Obama is a clear example of narcissistic behavior. He starts every sentence with “I”, making everything about “him”. A Liberal narcissist can not bring himself to think of anything greater than himself. They simply hate America and the celebration of its founding because they are jealous of the attention. It pains them to the core of their being.

You are a prime example of an American hater.Happy July 4th. Go pull some wings off flies or steal American flags from a graveyard.Shit on a police officer or deface a public monument.
The rest of us will praise God,enjoy family and laugh at you liberals and perverts.

You say that like you think I give a shit.

guest July 3, 2015 at 11:33 am

Give em a break Squishy.July 4th is a tough time for Fits and the gang.

Liberalism is a hideous disease that is destroying our country.
Consider kindergarton kids wanting to sing God Bless the USA and being told they can’t by their principal because the song is divisive, and then singing the song off campus only to be heckled by liberals and told they will burn in hell….consider libatards raping,deficating on flags and police cars. We are in a world of trouble if we don’t reign this disease in….

What Christians need at the Statehouse is an exorcism. “Out, Demon, Out!”

The century-plus of racism, hate, greed, dishonesty and other foundations of post-bellum southern conservatism needs be leached from the very walls and pillars.

I know you deep-dyed conservatives hate it, civil rights and all that. And it must especially hurt that ex-slave-state pols pulled off your first big, up to huge, real losses: Harry and Lyndon. And now your closer conservative pols are buckling–nay, many rushing–to erase even your symbolic relics of position. But in this state Tillman empowered the rural white trash to run the state (he didn’t even like the lintheads; they had to wait for Blease) and now at long last apparently it is their time to reassume their more natural position as noisy but ultimately compliant serfs. Times change.

Amen July 3, 2015 at 12:31 pm

Well said.

Squishy123 July 3, 2015 at 1:22 pm

Times change, too bad the actions of those bitching about the flag won’t. I’m sure crime, drop out rates, illegitimacy and car tire and wheel sizes will all drop as fast as the flag drops off the flag pole. Shit’s not going to change, it’ll just give them one less thing to bitch about.
