    Default How about?

    How about we get rid of Los Angeles itself???? After all, with the name being an honorific to the Virgin Mary, it MUST be offensive to the Muslims, etc.

    We have a civil war statue here in Franklin TN, in the center of town, which was protested several weeks ago, but HEAVILY "guarded" by men nearby in pickup trucks all day and night. Now a petition is circulating to remove/save it. Trust me, this could get VERY ugly.

    People have totally been eaten up with what I call "boogeyman brain".

    Taking down cultural/historical landmarks is all part of an effort to erase and rewrite history and remove cultural identities. People then have no culture to embrace or history to learn from. They no longer have a flag to wave. They no longer have anything unique to call their own and to be proud of. This makes them nameless, faceless, and interchangeable. This makes them easier for the globalists to manage.

    (Do you notice all the cultural unrest that's been happening in the U.S.? I believe it's completely orchestrated and encouraged, because the West/non-third-worlders are a problem for the globalists. They have too much freedom and money, and they need to be brought down to the level of everyone else in order to be controlled. People in the UK can't speak freely about certain topics on the street or even on the internet—and especially not against a certain religion—without threat of arrest. They're discouraged from flying the Union Jack so as not to offend anyone.)

    This removal of identity is also made easier by the transition to internet. Information can be edited to whatever they want it to say. It can be removed completely and forgotten. When all of the paper books that printed the truth are lost or fall apart, all that will remain is the digital record. He who controls the internet will control everything—history, information, money, the news, the truth...

    They'll eventually take down any Christian symbols, which they've been doing already with the Ten Commandments and Christmas trees. They'll move on to statues or artwork of Jesus, Bible verses, crosses, angels, and anything remotely related to THE God.

    Call me jaded, but I really do believe this. Just typing all this has me upset. I think I'll go look at cat pictures.

    Could this be considered a beginning of a "changing of the times" referred to in the last days???

    Sadly, there's already been a call by liberal lunatics to remove the Jefferson Memorial.

    Such a great point! I pray they don't take Christmas with the lights and decorations, the good will and the joy.

    Hold on...I actually approve of this erasing of Columbus Day. What we were taught in our elementary school textbooks was whitewashed version of his story. In reality, Columbus and his men did despicable things. Journals and historical accounts show that he was brutal. His men abused women, children, natives, and engaged in human trafficking. If you dig, you will find plenty of incriminating information and historical accounts that show that he was NO man of God.

    Also, he never actually discovered continental America. Also, the first European to discover American soil was probably the Scandinavian Leif Erikkson (and I'm pretty proud of that fact, as I share his surname), and hundreds of years before Columbus sailed to the islands south of Florida (and that's it, Columbus never set foot on our actual country).

    Basically, this hero worshiping of Christopher Columbus is based on a lot of myths. So I fully support this move in erasing Columbus Day. It's hardly the first time we've been sold some half-truths via public school elementary textbooks, right?

    I would be all for getting rid of the day alone.

    Not converting it into something else cause of feelings.

    Jesus doesn't care bout skin color. Nor do I.

    I don't even like Americans honestly celebrating Cinco de Mayo

    The bolded part above, me too, BorrowedTime! I remember when I first started seeing this being celebrated, I was wondering, 'why did we take a Mexican holiday and adopt it in the USA?' then I remembered....beer
    "Therefore my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable,
    always abounding in the work of the Lord;
    knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain."

    Ahh, again! More myths prevail! Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexico's military success against the French in the 1860s. It is commonly thought to be Mexico's Independence Day--but it is not! Mexico's Independence Day is September 16.
    And like it or not, Mexicans have brought a lot of their culture (and good food) to America. I live in Denver, which has a VERY high number of Mexican immigrants (also Native Americans--and these cultures are a true melting pot between here and Santa Fe and even the border), and the Cinco de Mayo celebration here is always a big deal to them. It's fine. I can't say I wouldn't still celebrate the 4th of July if I ever up and moved to England. My Mexican friends and neighbors don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo because of beer, that's not true or kind.

    But Cinco de Mayo in the U.S. is a celebration of Mexican-American culture, not Mexico's holiday of Independence Day. That was last week.

    Here's a really good explanation on the significance of Cinco de Mayo, and how/why it is celebrated here even more so than in actual Mexico:

    I’m going to be honest I stopped right here.

    I already knew Cinco is over what the MEXICAN ARMY did.

    I live in America. We actually fought against Mexico.

    I’m not interested in celebrating other countries victories be it Ghangis Khan or Alexander the Greats or the St Patty’s day.

    My number one priority is the well being of America and it’s acheivments and downfalls.

    I served in the United States Marine Corps. Not the Mexican Army.

    I was addressing Firefly's comment about adopting Mexican holidays. Cinco de Mayo in the United States is not as much about the army's achievements as it is celebrating Mexican-American culture, however.

    It's obvious we have very different viewpoints about where patriotism stands in our priorities, and I respect that you put America first and admire your service. I'm not so concerned about country lines anymore as I am bringing people of all nations into the Church before Jesus comes back for us. My identity as an American is nothing compared to my identity in Christ.
