Alabama Gov. Bentley removes Confederate flags from Capitol grounds

Baby steps but at least in the right direction:

On the order of Gov. Robert Bentley, the Confederate battle flag which stands at the foot of the confederate memorial on the state Capitol grounds was taken down this morning.

Two workers came out of the Capitol building about 8:20 a.m. and with no fanfare quickly and quietly took the flag down. They declined to answer questions.

Moments later Gov. Bentley emerged from the Capitol on his way to an appearance in Hackleburg. Asked if he had ordered the flag taken down, the governor said, “Yes I did.”

Asked his reasons for taking it down and if it included what happened in Charleston last week, the governor said, “Yes, partially this is about that. This is the right thing to do. We are facing some major issues in this state regarding the budget and other matters that we need to deal with. This had the potential to become a major distraction as we go forward. I have taxes to raise, we have work to do. And it was my decision that the flag needed to come down.”

Bentley said before he made the final decision he checked to see if there were any impediments in the law or state policy that would prevent him from taking down the flag and found none, so he acted.

Proposed Daytona Beach gun range considers serving alcohol

What could go wrong?

A Volusia County business owner wants to combine a shooting range with a restaurant that serves alcohol, which has some worried about customer safety.

The concept would be the third of its kind in the U.S., and the proposed site sits off Interstate 95 and International Speedway Boulevard in Daytona Beach.

City leaders told Channel 9 they hope the business is successful because of its location, and the owner said there will be several ways to keep customers on both sides of the business safe.

Conservatives Try to Equate Gay Pride Flag With Confederate Flag

The author makes an excellent point if you really think hard about it. You know how the confederate flag is the symbol of slavery, jim crow, segregation and the KKK? The rainbow flag is just as oppressive as a symbol. Christian bakers everywhere live under the fear of having to sell a cake to a gay couple for their wedding under that fabulous rainbow banner:

Under the banner of what is dishonestly called a gay pride or gay “rights” flag, hate, fascism, and intolerance has festered for years, specifically against Christians and conservatives. Under the auspices of a “rights and equality” symbol, Leftists have been on a rampage to take way the rights of others through bullying, lies, and online terrorism.

The list of misdeeds and victims resulting from an increasingly emboldened Big Gay Hate Machine continues to grow.

Under this banner of hate, people are outed against their will, terrorized out of business merely for being Christian, bullied and harassed for thoughtcrimes; moreover, “hate crimes” are being manufactured to keep us divided, Christians are refused service, death threats are hurled, and Christianity is regularly smeared as hate speech.
