Yet More Evidence that the insane Christo-Fascists are out of control.

KING, N.C. – The Christian flag is everywhere in the small city of King: flying in front of barbecue joints and hair salons, stuck to the bumpers of trucks, hanging in windows and emblazoned on T-shirts.

The relatively obscure emblem has become omnipresent because of one place it can’t appear: flying above a war memorial in a public park.

The city council decided last month to remove the flag from above the monument in Central Park after a resident complained, and after city leaders got letters from the American Civil Liberties Union and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State urging them to remove it.

That decision incensed veterans groups, churches and others in King, a city of about 6,000 people 15 miles north of Winston-Salem. Ray Martini, 63, an Air Force veteran who served in Vietnam, launched a round-the-clock vigil to guard a replica Christian flag hanging on a wooden pole in front of the war memorial.

    This truly insane……when did being a Christian make a political statement? Does anyone have trouble understanding the phrase…under God? Flying a Christain flag on a site already displaying a cross does not denigrate Moslem or Jews or any other religious group or even atheists. This COUNTRY fights its wars wherever the MILITARY fights for the COUNTRY…the COUNTRY has the phrase ONE NATION UNDER GOD in its pledge wether or not the indiv military person believes in one god, many gods or even none that phrase still stands. Ipso facto this nation and its military fight under God. The flag merely shows one symbol of God IN A GENERIC SENSE not an absolut dictat THAT THIS IS THE ONLY SYMBOL WE ACCEPT

      The “under god” crap was added to the pledge during the Joe McCarty years and is one of two reasons I stopped saying the pledge that is a lie. The other part being about with “liberty and justice for all”, an obvious lie since many of us in this nation experience neither liberty nor justice.

      Further this country does not fight its wars “under god”. Aside from there being no invisible sky daddy, god has nothing to do with our constant wars of imperialistic aggression, greed and power do.

      There is a reason for separation of church and state. If one wants to fly a Christian flag let them fly it over a Christian cemetery.

      I am fed up with the Christo-fascist effort to institute their version of Sharia upon this secular nation.
