What is a Huguenot? What Johnny Depp and others need to know.Posted on Jun 5th, 2011 | Category: Blog, Rebirth historical notes
The Huguenot fight for civil liberty that altered the fate of nations.
When one law, one faith, one king is the rule of the day, those who dare to think otherwise risked being the targets of terror and intolerance. Only a few are brave enough to speak their conscience, but not without the risk of death or dungeon. Soon, the name Huguenot (pronounced hoo-guh-no) is applied to these reformers and dissenters, and many Huguenots and Humanists alike stand together in civil disobedience against the combined corruption and and cruelty of church and state.
The Huguenot persecution began with the bravest and best educated nobles and soon included massacres of innocent women and children, simply for their stand on the ideals on freedom, the right to speak their conscience and the right to assemble without fear of persecution. This courage and sacrifice begin the philosophical debate on basic civil liberties and directly led to the basic principles of the U.S. Constitution.
“Rebirth’s” history also includes the heritage of Robert Duval, Johnny Depp, Warren Buffet, Steve Forbes, Kenneth Branagh, Winston Churchill, over a dozen American Presidents, millions of U.S.and world citizens ( as well as over 75 percent of England’s indigenous population — many of which– unknowingly, share this legacy of honor.) ALL those living in freedom and those longing for freedom will be outraged and ultimately inspired by this provocative true story.
