Reminds me of the time I was asked to speak at some Cemetery by some Civil War group in Arkansas. I was still fresh out of California and about 25. I don’t know if I wasn’t paying attention or what. I had prepared a very stirring speech with lots of quotes, mostly from Abe Lincoln and other notable Yankees. After the service was over I discovered it was a Confederate Memorial Day service sponsored by the Sons of the Confederacy. At that point in my life had never heard of this organization. I guess my attempt to make an excuse didn’t really smooth things over neither. "Son’s of the Confederacy"? I thought you were all dead!"

--This isn’t the sort of praying God really wants to hear.
