Gen. Robert E. Lee descendant leaves pulpit after backlash
A descendant of Gen. Robert E. Lee has stepped down as pastor of his North Carolina church after facing blowback over his comments denouncing racism and lauding the Black Lives Matter movement.
By Eliott C. McLaughlin, CNN

“My name is Robert Lee IV; I am a descendant of Robert E. Lee, the Civil War general whose statue was at the center of violence in Charlottesville. We have made my ancestor an idol of white supremacy, racism and hate. As a pastor it is my moral duty to speak out against racism, America’s original sin. Today, I call on all of us with privilege and power to answer God’s call to confront racism and white supremacy head-on. We can find inspiration in the Black Lives Matter movement, the women who marched in the Women’s March in January and especially Heather Heyer who died fighting for her beliefs in Charlottesville.”

Dang, son.

Rico Lavelle paid all the respect to the National Anthem by singing the thing and then kneeling to show his solidarity, so never, ever let it be said that kneeling is a sign of disrespect to our flag or our anthem.

It’s especially noteworthy that he knelt on the word “brave”–a reminder that kneeling is not a sign of disrespect, but of courage.

The story begins with a person who is an orphan; or someone who feels like an orphan, alone, separate, different, and misunderstood. This character has questions about their circumstance (for example:”Why did my parents die?”, “Why doesn’t anyone like me?”, Why am I always in trouble?”, “What will I do with my life?”, etc.). These questions set off the journey.
