  1. Whether or not it’s funny, it has a well-established history. During the Civil War, there were competing versions of a popular song about the war. Both the Union and the Confederacy had a variation of a tune called “the Battlecry of Freedom.” The Union version was what you’d expect, but the Confederate version was explictly cast in Romans versus Christians rhetoric:

    “Our Dixie Forever, she’s never at a loss,
    Down with the eagle, and up with the Cross.”
