Sick of the offended

I am tired. I am tired of all the people wanting to tear down Confederate statues, monuments, historical markers and any other signs of the Civil War because it “offends” them.

 

My questions for these “leaders” are:

1. Why aren’t you doing this in Atlanta? The Atlanta NAACP president and various ministers should know there are at least 25 memorials in the Atlanta area.

2. You “ministers”: If I remember my Bible, Jesus said “Feed my sheep.” He did not say “Tear down all the Roman statues because they offend you.”

3. With all the problems we have in Augusta (unemployment, gang violence, Hyde Park) and Atlanta (same problems), anybody “offended” by a rock is either using that as an excuse or has bigger emotional issues that they need to deal with.
