Speaker Gunn on #msflag, changes in hearts of men

By: Magnolia Tribune - August 15, 2017

Speaker Philip Gunn released the following statement:

“Though it is not to say that everyone who flies Mississippi’s flag has feelings of hatred in their hearts, the confederate battle emblem is painful for many people. It is obvious that the confederate battle emblem continues to be associated with attitudes of bigotry, hatred and racial superiority. I believe this association will only continue to increase, therefore providing more reason to disassociate with this flag.I want to see the flag changed. But, we must acknowledge that changing our state flag, alone, is not going to solve the problem of bigotry, hatred or racial superiority. Only changes in the hearts of men are going to solve these problems. For these reasons, we should pray for God to change the hearts of all those who believe and practice such evil.”
