Battle Hymn of the Republic in Christian magazine


Dear Chuck:

Today’s Christian magazine had an article featuring the Battle Hymn of the Republic. Here is the link:

Battle Hymn of the Republic

I would encourage all compatriots to write this magazine and let them know that Julia Ward Howe was not a Christian and that this is not a Christian hymn, but a song of wrath against the South.

I’m going to tell them I will never sing this song in my church.

Please contact the editor, who by the way is black, at the following email address:
