We are not asking all of the questions that need to be answered to provide a reasonable decision.

Point one: Which christians does this flag represent? The christians who believe Jesus is a) man and not god b) god and his body is a figment of our imagination c) half god and half man d) all god and all man e) one of a duality of false and real god f) one of three manifestations of a single god?

Point two: I served for 20 years along side christians of all stripes, muslims, buddhists, sikhs, pagans, native americans, and many unnamed faiths. To fly the flag of only one religion disrespects their sacrifices.

Point three: If you don't want to fly the flags of all religions because the flag of islam has not earned the right because of 9/11, consider this. The christian flag has also not earned the right because of Oklahoma City. That bombing was conducted by a christian.

There are two honorable solutions to this controversy. Fly the flag of every religion, or fly none of them.

Please enlighten us what is the difference in the USMC flag and the Christian flag? You make no sense. So tell us does the Christian flag make you want to be religious, or does the Marine flag make you want to be a Marine? And no your not a smartkinggal, you are the dumbasarockKingGal if you did not understand what he meant. I am so embarassed for you."

Actually she is a smart gal. You’re obviously an idiot if you have to be told the difference. So we will try to use simple language so you will understand. Please let us know if you do not know the definition or meaning of any of our words.

The USMC flag represents a branch of service that is associated with Marines (non-religious group), just as the other branches flags are respective their service members.

The Christian Flag represents a religious group that associates themselves with a religious belief that wishes to convert and force everyone to their perverted way of thinking and interpretation of their bible. Very similar to the Taliban and Al-Qaida - all three are militant groups.

Even though you may not look at the Christian flag as a problem because it represents your beliefs, to others it represents an oppressive group of people who wish to control everyone, forcing them to bow down to their God. Hmm, no difference than Al-Qaida.

I do hope this clears it up for your little mind and if any words are too big for you please let us know and we will dumb it down so you can understand

Well I have good news, it looks as if the memorial is going to be sold to group asscociated with Veterans. So now they can put the Christian flag back. Most of the towns people are for this. Minus a handful.

Sad that a group of fanatical religious zealots have to force their religious beliefs upon a memorial that is supposed to commemorate ALL Veterans not just Christian Veterans.

The City of KING should be ashamed of itself. This has not brought the city closer it has put neighbor against neighbor. Many of other faiths will not speak up in fear of scorn or retribution against their families and businesses. United my a-s-s!

So does this mean that ONLY CHRISTIAN Veterans can have markers place there?

Why don't we rename it CHRISTIAN VETERANS ONLY MEMORIAL!!!!!!!!!!
