‘Before turning against the U.S. military to command the Confederate army, Robert E. Lee served as the superintendent of West Point, the hallowed military academy that produced patriots like Ulysses S. Grant, Douglas MacArthur and Dwight Eisenhower.
But in the coming days, the storied academy will take down a portrait of Lee dressed in his Confederate uniform from its library, where it has been hanging since the 1950s and place it in storage. It will also remove the stone bust of the Civil War’s top southern general at Reconciliation Plaza. And Lee’s quote about honor will be stripped from the academy’s Honor Plaza.
The moves are part of a Department of Defense directive issued in October ordering the academy to address racial injustice and do away with installations that “commemorate or memorialize the Confederacy.”‘https://www.npr.org/2022/12/22/1145107950/west-point-confederate-symbols-robert-e-lee
‘Freedom Blend Coffee is a ministry under the umbrella of Freedom for Youth Ministries. It works to empower young adults with work training and life skills that produce “development, restoration and hope.”
“Employment training is at the heart of our mission at Freedom Blend Coffee,” according to the group’s website. “We teach young adults, age 18-25, valuable customer service, food safety and hospitality skills along with life and career skills that empower them to enter the workplace more confident and more prepared for the challenges before them.”
Broadlawns Medical Center is a hospital in Des Moines owned by the people of Polk County. It is a governmental entity.
So, the two parties we’re talking about in this situation who entered into a contractual agreement include a ministry and a governmental entity.
And if you’re wondering, Broadlawns was well aware before entering into the agreement that Freedom Blend Coffee was a Christ-centered ministry.
How do we know this? Because an email dated Dec. 30, 2021 from Constance Rainey to Broadlawns CEO Anthony Coleman makes it clear:
The two parties entered into a contract that would continue for one year effective April 15, 2022.
“While the parties are entering this relationship with the hope and anticipation that this will be a long-term mutually beneficial relationship, this agreement may be unilaterally terminated by either party with 30 days written notice to the other party,” said one of the provisions of the contract.
That contract was signed on March 15, 2022. Five months later Broadlawns terminated the contract due to Freedom for Youth’s religious beliefs.
To put it another way — a government entity punished a ministry for its faith.’ Full article at https://theiowastandard.com/punished-for-faith-governmental-entity-terminates-contract-with-ministry-over-religious-beliefs/
‘Academics and university officials have an “ethical” and “professional duty” to “denounce the GOP,” according to one professor at the University of Michigan’s flagship Ann Arbor campus.
“Republicans say professors are the enemy,” Professor Silke-Maria Weineck wrote in an essay for The Chronicle of Higher Education on September 6. “They’re right – we are.”’https://www.thecollegefix.com/academics-have-professional-duty-to-denounce-the-gop-umich-professor/
Gab is one of the few media sources that still hold to the freedom of the press. Well, that’s enough for the US Government to want to cause Gab trouble https://tv.gab.com/channel/a/view/addressing-the-adl-hit-piece-on-630273d3b8daa2282193c7e8.
