In the wake of the tragedy that has fallen on Charleston South Carolina and the nation as a whole where a disturbed young man shot and killed 9 parishioners at a Bible meeting this week. The young man’s motive has been said to be that he wanted to start a race war. This is deeply troubling and a sad turn of events for our Nation.

The liberals of course see this as an opportunity to ride the emotions and force changes to this great nation to weaken it even further and make it more like other “advanced countries” of the world. The United States was formed to be One Out of Many. Not one like everyone else. This is not a gun control issue other than some of the parishioners should have been armed themselves as the shooter reloaded 5 times during his attack. Had one or more of the parishioners been armed, we would have had a lot fewer deaths in this tragedy.

Also there is the call for South Carolina to remove the Confederate flag that flies at the capital. The Confederate flag was not created as a symbol of hate, despite being used by the Democrats that wanted slavery in the South. The Confederate flag symbolizes States Rights. Any other use or meaning is a corruption of the original intent of the symbol. For South Carolina it is their heritage. The national president of the NAACP has called for its removal since it has been used as a symbol of hate. And that’s the justification. That could be used to remove the US flag from poles as well as some see it as a symbol of hate. I’m sure the liberals would enjoy removing the US flag.

No this tragic event in Charleston is not about needing strict gun control or about removing the Confederate flag. It’s about an act of murder by a lone individual. And as the families of the victims of this tragedy have expressed, there is a need of forgiveness to Dylann Roof. They are expressing true Christian love to the man who committed a horrible crime. But one he still should be punished for by man’s justice.
