A Richmond, Va. circuit court judge has put a stay of 10 days on Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam’s decision to take down an iconic statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.
Concerned citizen William C. Gregory filed a lawsuit contending that the state promised to “affectionately protect” the statue when it initially annexed the land from Henrico County. The lawsuit noted that Gregory is the great-grandson of a couple who signed the original deed. The judge granted a 10-day injunction so his lawsuit can be adequately heard.
The statue has been in place since the late 1800s, which features the legendary general atop his horse on a majestic 50-foot base. Gregory’s lawyer, Joseph E. Blackburn Jr., argued in a court filing that the state “guaranteed” to “hold said statue and pedestal and circle of ground perpetually sacred to the monumental purpose” and “faithfully guard it and affectionately protect it.” The judge who signed off on the order is currently unknown.
Last week, Gov. Northam announced his intentions to remove the statue and put it into storage to appease Black Lives Matter rioters who have repeatedly desecrated the monument:
Virginia will remove a statue honoring Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in the city of Richmond “as soon as possible,” Gov. Ralph Northam announced Thursday.
“Today, we’re here to be honest about our past and talk about our future,” Northam said, adding: “We have to confront where we’ve been in order to shape where we’re going.”
The statue will be placed into storage, where it will remain until government leaders and the community can discuss its future, according to the governor.
“In Virginia, for more than 400 years, we have set high ideals about freedom and equality,” Northam said, “but we have fallen short of many of them.”
The statue will be removed from Richmond’s Monument Avenue, which is lined with effigies of Confederate generals. Of all the monuments, Lee’s looms the largest — and unlike the others, it is owned by the state, a six-story monument on a 100-foot island of land that the state also owns.
It’s up to Richmond, the Confederacy’s former capital, to decide what to do with the other statues; the city is in the process of determining what their fates will be.
“I know Richmond is going to do the right thing,” Northam said — prompting Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney, who was standing near Northam, to nod his head vigorously.
“It’s time to put an end to the Lost Cause and fully embrace the righteous cause,” Stoney said at Thursday’s news conference. “It’s time to replace the racist symbols of oppression and inequality — symbols that have literally dominated our landscape.”
“It’s time to heal, ladies and gentlemen,” he added.
The courts have put a halt to the cultural genocide pushed by left-wing terrorists in Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA, and they have time to do the right thing and protect their history from the anti-civilizational hordes.
SATURDAY 9/26: Franklin Graham’s ‘Prayer March’ in Washington D.C. Aims to Revive Christianity to Unite Americans
The truth of Christ is desperately needed in the hearts of Americans.
Renowned pastor Franklin Graham is set to hold his Prayer March 2020 on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 12pm to 2pm at the Lincoln Memorial during a time in which national unity is desperately needed.
“America is in trouble. Our communities are hurting, our people are divided, and there’s fear and uncertainty all around us. Let’s join together and do the most important thing: pray!” Graham announced on the group’s website.
The 1.8-mile march will begin at the Lincoln Memorial then continue through the World War II Memorial. The Christians will then make their way to the Washington Monument over to the National Museum of American History & Culture and then to the National Archives before ending at the U.S. Capitol.
“Prayer is our most important weapon. It allows us to go directly to the King of Kings, directly to stand in front of the throne of grace, and make our petitions directly to the throne of God,” Graham said in a video promoting the march.
Because of the marxist Black Lives Matter terror movement and the COVID-19 scamdemic, religious freedom in America is under attack like never before.
Big League Politics has reported on how churches are getting fined for merely holding in-person services, which is heinously unconstitutional and makes a mockery of the 1st Amendment:
Over the past week, North Valley Baptist Church in Santa Clara, California has amassed $15,000 in fines for holding church gatherings.
Christianity Daily noted that the church’s move violated the county’s health order and “It was the largest corona virus related fines levied in Santa Clara County.”
On August 23, 2020, the county slapped the church with two $5,000 fines for holding services indoor during the morning and evening. The church was fined again $5,000 for conducting another service in-person.
On the church’s door, there was a cease-and-desist letter posted, which explained that “North Valley Baptist was in violation of the health order for holding indoor services, failing to ensure mask-wearing and social distancing indoors, singing during services and failing to submit a social distancing protocol.”
The $5000 fine in question is the highest possible financial penalty for businesses that violate the Wuhan virus health order that Santa Clara county implemented earlier in August. Counsel James Williams remarked that “the county has avoided issuing fines in favor of working with businesses to bring them into compliance.”
Local governments across the nation are exploiting the Wuhan virus pandemic to implement policies that undermine the right to peaceful gatherings and certain forms of social activity that individuals on the right or organizations that uphold traditional values tend to participate in.
The founders of Black Lives Matter have been explicit about their marxist intentions. They hope to not just inflict racial dominance over white people, but also to destroy the capitalist system and impose a tyranny on America that resulted in the gruesome murders of tens of millions of Christians worldwide.

Only the blood of Christ can re-purify the American nation, which has drifted into secularism and may experience damnation as a result. The Prayer March could be the stop of America’s slide into Sodom and Gomorrah.
