I'm sure we all have opinions on the recognition of MLK day. I'm not of color and my opinions would be different if I were. But there is a "Christian" school in Mississippi that was closed yesterday. According to their calendar on their website, it wasn't for MLK day but it was "Robert E. Lee day".

Traditionally celebrated on the same day, 3rd Monday in January.

Robert E Lee's birthday is Jan 19, MLK's is is Jan 15.

Right now MLK day just another day to try to fool the masses with the lying MSM into thinking Trumps a racist.
They will spend more time trying to make Trump look like a racist than talking about MLK and what he did.
That FAR FAR more important to MSM and liberals than what MLK was all about and did.

When I moved to Virginia back in 1990, I was surprised to learn that yesterday was a state holiday known as “Lee-Jackson-King Day.” It isn’t anymore. That school in Mississippi has a bad history department. How could any Mississippian have admiration for Lee? Lee refused to send Longstreet’s corps to join up with Johnston in Jackson, MS to help relieve Pemberton in Vicksburg. Instead, he took the Army of Northern Virginia north to Gettysburg and the rest, as they say, is history.

Used to not think much of MLK...until I listened to his speeches. He was a great man. Today, he would get run out of most black colleges and be considered a hate group by the SPLC.

You may be right...I have yet to look into the man.

I find the idea of celebrating REL day on MLK day discussing. This school has a rep that opposes the stated Christian ethic. While I don’t believe MLK merited a nat’l holiday, calling the same day REL day is simply not Christian in the way I was raised.

Which of the Commandments did they violate?

Paul said: There is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him” (Romans 10:12.) Then Gentiles were the lowest of the low and were often referred to as dogs. Celebrating a holiday for Robert E Lee on the established holiday of a Black is no mistake. If they had wanted to truly celebrate REL, they could easily have done it on his actual birthday.

As I stated previously, this school has a reputation of racist tendencies which violates a lot of Christian ethics including Love your neighbor as yourself. Sadly, racism is with us and is promoted by both sides of the argument.

The school is the Carroll Academy Rebels. They are a private school and can choose who and what to celebrate on their calendar. For you to question that school's Christianity is pathetic. If you consider MLK a saint you haven't looked at much unbiased history. To me it would be more relevant to question the Christian bona fides of a public school that disparages Jesus by minimizing the celebration of Christmas or Easter.

So it is now not only politically incorrect to celebrate Robert E. Lee's birthday in lieu of MLK's, it is also unchristian. "....Oh brave new world that has such people in it....."

You’ve clearly not read anything I’ve written. What I know about the school came from a grandfather of two boys that attend that school. He talked to me about the irony of their Christian ethics and things he has seen personally at their school events. I know a minister whose son has played football against that school and said the same things.

As to your accusation that I think MLK is a saint, please post where I said that. You can’t. You simply made that crap up.

A person can poop in their living room and call it a bathroom but better homes and gardens ain't giving them the cover.
