It is not only with great sadness, but with a righteous anger that the members of the Pactum Institute, not only in America, but around the world have noted the removal of the statue of of Confederate General Robert E. Lee in Richmond, Virginia. 

We recognize that statues erected in public spaces in remembrance of God-fearing Christian men such as General Lee cause great offense to our enemies in the same way that statues of idols and enemies of Christ cause offense to us. It is therefore evident that the removal of the statue itself is but a symptom of a much bigger dilemma: the tyranny of the godless by which they are continually suppressing the righteous children of God and our Christian heritage, because of their hatred of our King, Jesus Christ.

The sure knowledge that General Lee himself is in no way affected by this atrocity by virtue of currently enjoying the riches and glories of eternal salvation, gives us great comfort. We also take comfort in the knowledge that Christ will be victorious and conquer all his enemies, including those who are responsible for this most disgraceful act.

In the meantime, the Pactum Institute strongly suggests secession or at least increased regional and local autonomy as a means of maintaining the peace between ourselves and our enemies so that we can each develop our fundamentally incompatible cultures within our own respective communities and countries.
