by Rev. Austin Miles
Now seen as the President of the people, he has made tough decisions in the face of opposition, has shown polite grace to enemies, and his contribution to blacks is immeasurable, giving them security like no other time in history.
Many books have been written about him. The reading public is [in] almost total agreement that these books accurately characterize him.
THE MOVIE: now has attained Rock Star Status with the new movie, Lincoln (well who did you THINK I was writing about? Sheesh!)
This movie rates 3 Gs...Great Production, Great Portrayals with Great history. Sally Field's carbon of was beautifully played. The entire cast nailed it perfectly.
This excellent movie, based on the book, Team of Rivals by details the passion behind passing the 13th Amendment, better known as The Emancipation Proclamation, which would make slavery illegal.
Tensions were high between the Republicans and Democrats over the 13th Amendment and the great effort to reach swing voters. The Civil War had been raging for four years with the death toll over 600,000, a war that had exploded over the very issue of freeing the slaves.
The movie clearly shows that it was DEMOCRATS who viciously fought against the passage of the13th Amendment and when it was suggested that the blacks might one day have the right to vote, loud boos and shaking of fists filled the chambers. Like the DNC when they booed God.
A Democrat house member sarcastically stated that if the 'negroe's' are allowed to vote, next thing you know, WOMEN will have the right to vote. That thought was also met with a chorus of boos and shaking of fists. Why the idea of such a thing!
Now hold on! If it is the DEMOCRATS who are racist and declaring war on women, how come they accuse the Republicans of doing those exact things, which they are not, while the Democrats ARE.
The Bible does state: "Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest; for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things." Romans 2:1
In other words, people do tend to judge others according to their own standard of conduct.
The Dems should consider this movie before accusing Republicans of being racists and at war with women. The movie shows the truth. To do that now will serve only to discredit the democrats even more.
WISHING A HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL !
