Digging Up The Dead - And Response (2)

Sunday, June 20, 2021

The remains of General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife have been dug up from a park in Memphis and moved to a Confederate museum.  General Forrest was a grand wizard in the KKK and therefore is hated.  How much did that cost the taxpayers?

Robert Byrd and his wife remains are in the Columbia Gardens Cemetery in Arlington, Va., very close to Arlington National Cemetery.  He was an organizer and member of the KKK. He organized 150 men to start a new KKK chapter.

That was apparently just fine. Joe Biden gave the eulogy at his funeral.  Said he was a mentor and good friend.  No hate there.

How ironic.

If we start digging up remains of all the people some group hates, we will have more holes in the ground than chipmunks make in my yard daily.

I have heard that soon all remains of the dead will be ground up and spread around like fertilizer. That is a good way to end that hate issue.

I’m not sure God ever intended the remains of the dead be dug up for any reason.  I think we may be out of bounds on this issue.
