Dr. Minzey And Civil War - And Response

Friday, May 25, 2018

Dr. Jack Minzey truly understands what is happening in our society today. After reading this article, I am convinced that we are headed toward a civil war.

I am a conservative Christian who does not understand the thinking of a liberal progressive Democrat. I have voted and still would vote for those that believe and fight for conservative causes and some were Democrats. But they are no longer just Democrats but liberal progressives who are against everything I believe in and are angry that I will not believe their way.

I believe in truth and justice, but they want you to believe their truth, which is not truth at all. 

Having lived in the South all my life I know we are slow to adapt to the ways of the rest of the states, but it is here and taking over as fast as it can through corruption, power and money.

This is the best article I've read on this topic. Right on the mark.

Thanks for presenting Dr. Minzey's final paper.

I never saw that movie but I did stop beating up on Danny Kay.  Years later, I got to read the Thurber classic. It was a magazine article and ... (click for more)
