My how things have changed!
From: trebelman@juno.com

Chuck, I can remember when the group "Alabama" toured all over America, had rave reviews, was given top billing & many times had a Confederate flag as their backdrop and none were offended. I still have their album with a Confederate flag as its cover. My how things have changed! We Southern American’s can blame ourselves for being asleep and allowing the NAACP, the ACLU, & Morris Dee’s SPLC to let this happen through their crafty hate propaganda over the last decade or so. Hate is a learned thing and they have cunningly use the word "offend" as a means to brainwash our youth into accepting today’s multicultural society that wishes to do away with our Southern American Judeo-Christian values and all it’s symbols. If I may; – let me quote Matthew: 24, 9-13; – – "and then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. but he who endures to the end shall be saved" – – – 2nd Timothy 3:1-5; " For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God," – (and on). I believe this pretty well sums up our world of today.

Thanks for the time and "Laus Deo"!
