Onward Confederate Christian Soldiers

Have you seen this? No, really.
Battle Flag of The Holy Bible.
Have you? Can it be made any clearer that Confederate Jesus is a racist? As are Confederates, the Arkansas GOP & these astounding Arkansas legislators:
After Arkansas Republicans disavowed a book by state representative Jon Hubbard (R-AR) claiming slavery was “a blessing in disguise” for African Americans, Hubbard’s colleague, state Rep. Loy Mauch (R-AR) has been outed by the Arkansas Times for his pro-slavery, pro-Confederacy letters to the editor over the past decade. Mauch’s run for reelection this year is backed by the Arkansas Republican Party.

In letters to the Democrat-Gazette, Mauch vehemently defended slavery and repeatedly suggested Jesus condoned it:
If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it, why was it in the Constitution and why wasn’t there a war before 1861?The South has always stood by the Constitution and limited government. When one attacks the Confederate Battle Flag, he is certainly denouncing these principles of government as well as Christianity.
His other letters call Abraham Lincoln a Marxist and celebrate the Confederate flag as “a symbol of Christian liberty vs. the new world order.” He also organized a conference in 2004 praising John Wilkes Booth and calling for the removal of an Abraham Lincoln statue. Mauch has been supported mainly by contributions from the Republican Party and other Arkansas candidates. Now, the state GOP is pulling all funds from Mauch, Hubbard and another state legislative candidate, Charlie Fuqua, who wants to expel all Muslims from the country and thinks rebellious children should receive the death penalty.

Though the party committee has cut them off, the three candidates are still receiving support from other Arkansas politicians, including U.S. Reps Steve Womack (R) and Tim Griffin (R). Mauch has also been endorsed by the National Rifle Association and the Arkansas Right to Life PAC.
Beyond denial; right there in, if you'll pardon us, ebony & ivory. (Well, gray & black because it's all about the nuance here.) And so far beyond any possible parody or spoof it has to be true. The nut-picking of Loy Mauch's letters to the editor is not to be missed, don't be satisfied w/ TP's recap. And Rep. Rep. Mauch must've said/done something else inane; this image trotted out by the Arkansas Times & then TP has been in the Just Another Blog &c.™ editorial hard-drive since November 2010. When not-a-theocrat Mauch was elected.

Duh. The only people denying that most of the GOP are racist thugs are the racist thugs of the GOP. And the only reason the GOP has a problem with it is that if you're too obvious it costs you votes.

The triumph of ideology over electability. Oh well. There's always guns and bombs...

Damn, Sherman should have turned around and marched back from the sea. Obviously, these yay-hoos didn't learn their lesson.

Editor Differs:
These bastards have all been elected.

Starting to think the Stars & Bars should be treated as the Krauts treat all that Nazi tat. When you get right down to it the Nazis were actually more legit/legal than the secessionists.

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
