Are we as Christians going to let 1 person dictate the removal of our flag the same way we let 1 person remove prayer from our schools? I think this should be voted on in November, through local government, with the winning magority deciding on weather it stays or goes. Let the people of the county decide as a majority. Are we truly going to let ourselves as Christians to always be pushed around just because of 1 person? This country was founded on Christian beliefs!

All of our rights are being slowing taken away and we just allow a Nobama to dictate how our government should be, where is Lee Harvey Oswald... I believe he would be angry

You mean you don't know when prayer was in school? Until that ignorant woman pushed to have prayer removed...we prayed every day before school strated. The start of MINIORITY RULE in America.
Did you fail history class?
By the way PRAYER is still legal in schoo. ANY student can pray. And every September in many schools across this nation there's one day set aside for MEET YOU AT THE POLE...where students lead a Bible study, sing songs, and PRAY, PRAY, PRAY.
I can't believe you didn't know prayer was legal in schools!
Amazing.

What is it with morons today. They missed the part in the Constitutional Amendment of "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;..." No one is being FORCED to believe anything. No religion is being established. BUT the expression 'thereof' is being prohibited.
Once again, the MINORITY rules. GAG. PUKE.

When did the secularists come to your church or home and tell you not to pray? It never happened and hopefully never will. Teachers and coaches, in public schools because they are considered public officials, are not permitted to lead prayers with students. It is against the law. Students can lead their own prayers in schools without teacher's aid. Having a flag fly on government property is establishing a state religion. The American flag and state flag are the ones that represent America and North Carolinians.

Where did I mention anything about not being permitted to pray in our church or home? You're one of those who believe CHRISTIANITY SHOULD STAY IN CHURCHES? Get your head outta your hind parts, bubba. I never said anything about school staff being permitted to lead a prayer. Sheesh, are you that stupid? I take it reading comprehension disabilty is your illness.
No Christian flag allowed to be flown, but ask why the city closes down for 'winter break'? If there wasn't any birth of Christ, NO ONE would have a 'winter break'. It used to be called CHRISTMAS VACATION and EASTER VACATION. No Easter, then those college kids wouldn't be off drinking, drugging, and screwing their ńsses off on 'SPRING BREAK'. Why does the government close down...and stores...on December 25? Ever see the gov't and businesses shut down on Eid Mubarak, Yom Kippur, Buddha's Birthday, any Wiccan holy days, or Hindu holy days, or maybe Ramadan? I think not.
Why not have the government WORK during Christmas season? Some companies even shut down on GOOD FRIDAY for crying out loud! Yet people get their panties in a bunch over a Christian flag...or a Christian creche and scream about HAVING CHRISTIANITY SHOVED DOWN THEIR THROATS. OH GAG, PUKE ALL OVER THE PLACE!
What would YOU do if you were told you have to work on Christmas, and everyone else gets it off? You'd whine and cry about it not being fair.

Since you think you're a Constitutional law expert, would you kindly explain how flying a Christian flag is ESTABLISHING A STATE RELIGION? Flying the flag FORCES no one to believe ANYTHING. I'm eagerly waiting your learned explanation.
