Fame speaks of sacrifice
I can understand conversation on Fame, but to what end? Fame, in a nonverbal way, speaks to us about the lives that were lost to defend one’s opinion and way of life with the ultimate price of one’s own life. That transcends the war that was fought between the North and the South to any other wars fought in the pursuit of liberty.
As Mark Wineka already pointed out, the winged Fame is private property owned by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, and free speech is their right. I am not deserving of a vote on the matter as I was born in the North. However, as it is one of the most beautiful pieces of art that I have encountered, and appreciative of its message, I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is. Where can I send a $100 check in your support of keeping Fame right where it is, Daughters of the Confederacy?
How about everyone else that wants to see Fame stay?

God does not make mistakes. He never has and He never will.
I do not understand “cross-dressers” but I’m betting it has to do with homosexuality of some kind. Transgenders, take note: God has never mistakenly put a male soul into a female embryo or a female soul into a male embryo.
And as for homosexuals of any gender, have you changed your life style? If not, God knows you not, and will tell you so at your judgment. I do not see why you think you deserve the same rights and benefits as normal married couples.
Homophobia? I think the term phobia describes “a fear of…” I fear no one. Bold, you say? No. God is by my side at all times. What will be, will be. But all things, good or bad as human nature would see it, are controlled by God. Some of you need to change your lifestyles and seek forgiveness. Time’s a’ wastin’.
