Lou Engle Calls for the Religious Right to Emulate Confederate Generals
Wow. Rarely are we privileged to witness such a moronic convergence of right wing bigotry, as Lou Engle of The Call says the religious right should model themselves after the Confederacy to fight “the homosexual agenda.”
Very bad craziness indeed.
During his speech at the Christian Broadcasting Network’s “Week of Prayer” yesterday, Lou Engle asked for support of his upcoming The Call: Virginia prayer rally, saying that Virginia should fight back against Washington D.C., just as Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson did during the Civil War. General Lee “had an anointing or something,” Engle said, “he was able to restrain Washington, he took his stand and held back those forces.” Engle also pointed to Stonewall Jackson for “rallying the Virginians” against the Union as a model to fight the “homosexual agenda” and the demonic “principalities and powers” behind homosexuality. Engle said, “Raise up a stonewall to restrain the agenda that is coming out of D.C.”
Somebody should let ol’ Lou know that the Confederacy lost.
