Australian Catholic's smirching of R. E. Lee
General Robert E. Lee, American mass murderer?
By, Dr. Andrew Thomas Kania
"Our mortal enemy is our mortal enemy, he seeks to kill us. But after he is incarcerated, and can do us no more harm, let us turn, as Abraham Lincoln exhorted, to the better angels of our nature, and not go down the road to blood-lust and revenge. For this reason alone, a man who probably helped to kill more Americans than any other in history, General Robert E. Lee (1807 - 1870) was spared his life."
Want to talk about mass murderers? We could start with a number of Catholic Popes!! ... PoP
