Then your website is worse than Kim il-Sung, you accept one-sided adoration from Union fans and collect golden statues of yourselves. The War has cavalry engagements because every single Confederate knew of the Orthodox Church, "Freedom or Death" is the chant of the Greek Independence movement. The Latin Church attempts to convert the Orthodox Church throughout the Balkans. Every single song is about a great Caesar and Pope , a demagogue, an ochlocrat. Governor George Wallace is about the stations of Churches respecting each others stations and the races respecting their stations and basically, everything in its place. "Richmond is a Hard Road to Travel", appropriately links the ministries attached to Stonewall Jackson and the Union General Pope and a Universal Yankee Nation.
as you don't know when to shut up (and on the first day out of a ban at this) we need time to discuss this. unfortunately for you that means knacki_gra.gif a little longer. you get an email when it's sorted cop.gif

5fish, the Southern Baptists never teach this church history. Always had the Lottie Moon Offering drive...without ever knowing who (exactly) Lottie Moon was!
She was a missionary from Virginia who spent her life as a missionary in China. She was a letter writer and wrote many...


Her entire 40-year career was spent in northern China, first in Tengchow and later in Pingtu. Not satisfied to be only a teacher of Chinese children, she also became an effective evangelist of Chinese

Yes, Lottie Moon's career was long and fruitful. However, during the war she and her sisters were Confederate spies. Lottie was known for leaving guys at the altar (Ambrose Burnside being one of them) - because being engaged got them to tell her things they wouldn't otherwise. She did marry the last one, however, since he stuck a gun in her ribs. (Yes, I love that man of mine!)

The trouble with the split in the Baptist church was it was over sending slave-owning missionaries to Africa and China. The Northern Baptists did not approve. After the Civil War ended slavery, the dispute over slave owners being missionaries was ended as well, and she began her work. Quite dedicated, had a long life, and did good. Religion and a sense of duty to others was very strong after the war - lots of conversions, ministries, missionaries, and other came out of it. It was a post-war Great Awakening - this country has them every so often.

You'd think that the end of the Civil War would re-unite the Baptist church, but it didn't.
