The Reconstructionist movement run by ultraCalvinist diehards is one of them. They have put Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson and Robert E. Lee in their pantheon of little gods next to Jesus. It must have been a mentally orgasmic day for the Reconstructionist honchos when President Ford restored the full rights of citizenship to General Lee in 1975. (And this rehab job is fully supported by traditionalist Catholic outfits since Pope Pius IX supported the Confederacy) Maybe the Vatican can make them honorary Catholics and declare them saints.
