German-language coverage today of the Charleston massacre noted our denunciation of the attack, quoting from and linking to SF. This resulted in a lot of visits to our site from Switzerland, Germany and other parts of Europe.
Some have asked how we should respond to awful events like this which have the potential to harm us politically and culturally. This is part of the answer. We must be clear in denouncing such immoral and un-Christian acts while remaining true to our principles. I believe that SF did this. Even if the coverage we get is hostile (and the German article was definitely hostile), we want the public to know that our movement denounces this awful action.
This was the first real test of our new website and I believe we have contributed positively to the Southern cause.
Thank you to our readers and especially those who commented on the attacks and supported our denunciation of it.
