If anyone is going to this public hearing, please mention that to fight this the easy way is to allow other religious groups to display a flag on the site. It will make those groups raise the money, it leaves the christian flag in place and the ACLU without a leg to stand on.

You could even require the religious groups to prove that a resident memorialized there was a member of said religion or get the families permission to display a flag on a soldiers behalf.

Just a thought.

Way to go town of king! you all are restoring my faith that there are still people willing to fight for what is right in our country, besides all the active duty and veterans we have in our midst. Thanks to everyone who has stood up and supported and supports the defense of our libertys and are not ashamed to stand up for GOD. Its about time we took a stand against those "loud mouthed few" that seek to impose their will on majority of the rest of us - THANK YOU

If we were to form a theocracy we would be no better than the Taliban, Hitler’s Germany, etc… Only in a free society can religious freedom be truly free when it is not imposed upon the population by a government or mob rule.

I find it interesting these so called “Christians” can’t convert by example. Because the example that has been displayed with their HATE speech towards other Christian, non-Christian religions, atheists, agnostics, etc… surely turns people off if this is what Christianity is all about, hating anyone who has an opinion that differs from yours.

I also doubt that Jesus would approve of their behavior as being that of his flock. I do believe he would ask what have you done for the poor, the weak, those down trodden, people who are about to lose their homes, don’t have enough food to feed their children, etc… on and on and on.

What would be these “Christians” response? But look LORD we have raised your flag and exulted it high upon a place of worship; we bow down before it and swear allegiance to it in your name.
I’m pretty sure he’d send all of you hypocrites out just as he did the money changers at the temple.

Yes, even those of us who are not of the Christian faith know the bible better than those who think they do. It’s a good fiction read.
Christians don’t’ even know how or when the bible was even compiled and how it’s been changed and added to by churches and people throughout the ages to read how MAN wants it to read. Even when shown the evidence of such fact they still deny it. WHY?

Because this is the only thing they have to cling to and be able to make reason out of their existence. Hell, an entire industry is built upon it. Look and the fake healer Benny Hinn who bilks millions out of the ignorant as well as our local church pastors, sucking hundreds of thousands of dollars out of the local population without returning a dime.

Is there money in the church coffers? Do you have money in your bank accounts? Jesus would ask why then are you not sharing that with his people? Why? Because his so called people are hypocrites!
Christians my ****! Thank God, Jesus is not here seeing this crap. This people filling the council chamber are not doing God’s work, they are doing Satan’s work.

A revolution started with one voice, oh yea, it was Called the American Revolution. To get out from under the thumb of dictator King that pushed his religion upon others. Sounds just like you, someone that wants to push his/her religion upon others. You know if you don't like America and freedom for all then move to Antartica and start your theocracy with all your other religious nut jobs

From what I hear Steve is not anonymous, a lot of people seem to know who he is. He should have kept his mouth shut on the situation. Before, he never had to see the flag that was at the park because you cant see it from the road. Now he has to see the Christian Flag everywhere. All I can say to Steve is THANKS. Thanks for doing this & bringing our community closer together & thanks for showing us that the ones that choose, CAN hang Christian flags the way we want. Now you have to see more than you ever imagined! Thank you again Steve!

I quote a resident of King " we don't want no new people in King"...I have lived in King for all of my life. Anytime I have told anyone I am not christian, my children are literaly bullied! The whole problem is not that we dont respect your religion or freedom...its you dont respect ours.

NEWS THAT THEY DON'T WANT YOU  TO HEAR:

Here is a link to the Associated Press story:

http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/A...

"Firefighters let home burn; owner didn't pay fee
(AP)– 50 minutes ago
SOUTH FULTON, Tenn.— Authorities say firefighters in a far western Tennessee city let a mobile home burn down because the owner didn't pay a $75 yearly fee for fire protection."

ABC, CNN, and other biased media will ignore this story. They work for the powers-that-be, and not the people. THIS REALLY HAPPENED: Trained firefighters sat idly by and watched a TN family's home burn to the ground due to the fact that the residence was outside of the city limits, and the owner did not pay a $75 yearly fee to the fire department. When the next-door neighbor's field caught fire, the firefighters quickly put that fire out, yet allowed the home next door to burn to the ground. The homeowner attempted to pay the fee, or whatever amount it would take to have the fire extinguished, but the firefighters on the scene refused. FIGHT THIS INJUSTICE - Repost this article.

Nonsense and besides the point. The case is not about being fair. It is about the Establishment Clause. Just to piss you off, I will personally fund the erection of a flag on government property that flies a Jewish flag, Wiccan Flag, Muslim flag and then another pole that only flies one flag - A Scarlett A, representing the Atheist population. However, since you think this is about being fair, I will demand that the sites be maintained with local tax dollars. I will also erect a webcam focused on the sites. If a vandal does anything to my monuments, I will press charges to the highest extend of the law. Deal?

I read about this Steve. He doesn't seem to care about seeing a flag. He cares about public monies being used to maintain a Christian Monument on public land. He, like me, could care less about seeing flags on people's property. He cares about protecting the laws of the Central Government. Don't you understand the difference?

What Unions are trying to tear down faith? You mean the American Civil Liberties Union? The same not for profit that represents Christian Rights all the time? What in the F are you talking about? Go read a book, Joan.

My Monuments? Wait a minute; these would no longer be your monuments, as they would be up-kept by tax dollars and according to those on your side of the argument, they are the cities. Therefore it is the city that retains the right to press charges. Unless you are conceding that the speech is that of the monument's donor and not the city?
