S.C. Senator: ‘The Devil Is Taking Control Of This Land’
This morning (7/6/15) the South Carolina legislature met to debate what to do with their enshrined Confederate battle flag (aka “treason flag”). The first to speak on the senate side was Lee Bright, a Republican representing Roebuck, a wide spot on state highway 213, south of Spartanburg.
Senator Bright (who has been described as “about as bright as a 4W un-screwed light bulb”) is known for his passionate defense of the flag. After the Charleston AME church murders and the backlash against the Confederate flag as a banner of treason and hate, he got busy. On the 28th of last month, he set up an on-line petition to save the flag. Not only that, but if you make a “quick donation” ($25 – $—–) to his political campaign, he’ll send you a bumper sticker.
So, it was naturally assumed that Senator Bright would rise to his beloved banner’s defense. But the senator had other things on his mind. (Either that, or he was hallucinating that the senate chamber was the Roebuck Baptist church.) It seems that praising his flag wasn’t nearly as important as condemning “deviant behavior.”
Our governor called us in to deal with the flag that sits out front, let’s deal with the national sin that we face today! We talk about abortion but this gay marriage thing, I believe will be one nation gone under like President Reagan said. If we’re not one nation under God, we’ll be one nation gone under.
I watch the White House be lit up in the abomination colors! It is time for the church to rise up…. Romans chapter 1 is clear, the Bible is clear. This nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and they are under assault by men in black robes who were not elected by you.
And to sanctify deviant behavior from five judges, it’s time for us to make our stand, church! It’s time to make our stand and we’re not doing it.
We can rally together and talk about a flag all we want but the devil is taking control of this land and we’re not stopping him!
Let’s find some way to deal with marriage. If we’re not going to find some way to deal with marriage like our forefathers did or push back against a tyrannical government like the founders of this nation did, let’s at least not put these citizens in South Carolina in a position where they’ve got to choose between their faith and their jobs.
Senator Bright likes to use the bible to back up his bigotry, but in reference to that last sentence, he seems to have forgotten about Mark 12:17 –
And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marveled at him.
Meanwhile, the debate on the flag goes on.
