Southern Belle Sorority

Consider the effect of 3 to 5 million, political,
social activist ladies, in the roll of Southern Belles. 

 

The topic of a Southern Belle Sorority is one that has for some years, been dear to my heart, and while it should be obvious to everyone concerned that such an organization, if having a zealous, activist membership, would advance the Confederate Cause mightily. Still, one must face the reality of our present age, which means it is not likely; such an organization will come about, without a dynamic and principled leadership.
.
The Sorority spoken of here is not one like unto what we have all seen thus far, a meeting once and a while, on rare occasion maybe showing up at a reenactment or historical display or perhaps a Southern Ball Dance. At the time of the writing of this document, success appears to be a little dubious at best, nonetheless because the concept would be extremely valuable, an effort must be made. Scroll down the page and read about the Southern Belle Sorority!

"Our country demands all our strength, all our energies. To resist the powerful combination now forming against us will require every man at his place. If victorious, we will have everything to hope for in the future. If defeated, nothing will be left for us to live for." --- General Robert E. Lee

Ladies of the Confederacy

"The concept here is to vastly expand the Confederate Cause, not merely its preservation!" 

 

What do we mean by titling this new organization, “Southern Belle Sorority” and why is it necessary? The term ‘Southern Belle’ naturally is well known, even among Yankees, and the historic Southern Belle has become a legend among those who love our history, heritage and culture. Since the ultimate purpose is to attract members from the broader society, particularly young ladies of Colleges and Universities age. However this is where the Southern Belles described here of necessity, must differentiate themselves from all other Confederate or Southern organizations. The ladies, who form this group, must be completely devoted to the Confederate Cause, and prepared to sacrifice in its behalf!
.
Our ladies need to look at the present circumstances in which the Confederate Cause finds it self, as a war, howbeit a political cultural war, then resolve to come together and take action. Those of us who believe in The Cause, have for too long, confined our activities to socializing, and comparing notes, as to what ‘those people’ are doing. It is well pass the time when we need to shift our emphasis to what we will do, in behalf of the Confederate Cause! An example would be to begin in a relaxed and easy manner, whereby a few ladies would come together over coffee or tea in someone’s home, as friends might do on a pleasant and informal occasion.
.
While the concepts described here might best be placed in the feminine language of the ladies, allow me to describe it as a council of war, which would plan and carry out a battle strategy. Therefore this new emerging Sorority might be looked upon as like unto an Army Special Forces Command or else the Navy Seals, applying special weapons and tactics. Again, I am describing the scenario in the masculine, and you ladies would need to translate it into the feminine! Allow me to use an example of something observed locally; it involved a group of ladies, which wanted to teach young people what it was like in the mid 1950, so they decided a true-life demonstration would be better then a lecture.
.
These particular ladies decided it was most important to attract attention, as much as was possible, so they laid out a plan, and worked diligently to put together the items and the strategy necessary to make it happen. One day they all showed up at a popular local shopping center, dressed as would be common during that particular period of time. There plan worked better then they could have ever hoped, so much so that as people passed by, they surrounded the ladies on either size, gazed at the spectacle, and now strange it seemed to our time. The ladies were attired in dresses or skirts and blouses, with hemline from half to two-thirds the distance between the knee and the ankle.
.
The ladies also wore crinoline slips, which cause the skirt to flare or bell outward, as well as a pair of feminine but comfortable slipper type shoes with bobby socks, again all common to that period. When the ladies stopped to address those curious and bold enough to speak to them, the ladies began respond in an accent and style, as if they truly were from the mid 1950’s, and it worked. These ladies also wanted to impress upon the people the difference in common morality, customs as well as the dress of the time period, which they were exemplifying. But more then any thing else was the moral and cultural conditions these ladies described.
.
True, no period of time has ever been perfect, Adam and Eve sinned, and they lived in a perfectly created garden, and had they not committed their transgressions, they would have lived eternal in their garden paradise. The society of the mid 1950’s, which the ladies described was no different, but there were notable differences in the society then and now. Save in rare situations, men and women did not live together {cohabitate}, outside of marriage and upwards of 75 to 85 percent of the women were still virgins when they married. While women normally married young at that time, marriage was expected to be a lifetime commitment, when divorce was sought, it was challenged in court.
.
Also we should be reminded, every school day began with a verse from the Holy Scriptures and a daily prayer, normally the Lord’s Prayer, and Christian Holidays were celebrated. Schools with a Drama Department, usually put on the full story of Christmas from the Bible, and one could expect the Ten Commandments to be found posted at the front of the Classroom. A young High School Boy was once caught breaking into another boy’s locker and stealing its contents, as a punishment he was required to write ‘Thou shalt not steal’ 100 times on the black chalkboard. I would imagine, if he still lives today, he well remembers that commandment!
.
Let us use another example, nearly all Blacks married, and 95 percent of those marriages were for a lifetime! In our time only a small precious few by percentage will marry, and 65 percent or more Black Children are born out of wedlock. Whites fair only slightly better, and we can see the results of this plague of immorality, children living with one parent, poverty having become epidemic. Is there a need to go further? We have in our time a society on the verge of anarchy and collapse, which will certainly happen if the denigration continues. Surely our Southern Belles do not wish to ride this wagon all the way down to the bottom?
.
Additionally, even in the mid 1950’s there were those who were sold on lowering the moral standards of society, among them was the belief that Biblical principles of no sex before or outside of marriage, was as out of date as the middle ages. Such people challenge through legislation and the courts, until as we see today, they have finally won, and morality lost. Our ladies should be able to safety walk down the street unescorted, at any hour day or night; how many of you ladies would feel you’d be safe in doing so? How many would leave your home or car door unlocked, not to mention identity thieves? When will action be taken, when the entire society goes down the sewer?
.
Today we live in a society rapidly becoming another Sodom and Gomorrah, like unto the story in the Bible, and those who believe in the Confederate Cause will see the need to step forward and become activists or else as a sailor might say, go down with the ship. The example of the ladies at the shopping center and their mid 1950’s activism, were not an organization, but merely a group of friends and acquaintances who came together in order to answer what some might say is a trivial question. How did it all begin one cannot be sure, perhaps these young people saw something on television, their I-pad or I-phone; but these ladies chose an open and activist manner of addressing the issue.
.
The issue here is what will our ladies do about the situation? Surely all or the vast majority of the ladies have friends and neighbors who would participate in forming a Southern Belle Sorority, in your area. Perhaps your activism might not follow precisely what has been exemplified here, but be that as it may, it can all begin with friends getting together. Our ladies can have a powerful influence over our ultimate mission and purpose, if they so choose, but it might mean sacrificing the dress and mannerism of the popular culture. Then begin providing a living example of those virtues and values, which made our Confederate Cause, the legend that it is today.
.
{While immediate action on the above is not expected, at some point in the not to distant future, a true activist Southern Belle Sorority will be organized, which will be accomplished by someone else, or if you like, by any one of you, who read this WebPages.}

We hear the term 'million man march' well let me provide you ladies with a new cliche, a Million Southern Belle March.  There are some of you who believe, but aren't so sure you can convience the other ladies.  The South was once known as the Bible Belt, how about reviving a little of that spirit, and begin a Southern Belle Sorority with a prayer, even if there only a few.  You Southern Belles can have an enormous effect on politics and society, which will change the course of a people and nation!  This would not deminish those organizations devoted strictly to preservation, but would rather strengthen and expand the entire Confederate Cause.  How about it ladies?
