This is what happens when Christians do not stand up for what we believe in. Let this serve as a lesson to be learned by all the rest of us, not to let this happen where we live.

Does the city of King not know who they are messing with removing this flag. This earth didn't just happen into being and neither are humans a genetic mistake. Everyone should be proud to fly the Christian and the American flag. ONE NATION UNDER GOD!!!!!

Why is it that all we seem to do is cater to everyone else's belief's rather than the one our country was founded on! If they don't like the way we worship they can go back home where they came from-they have the right to worship as they want to so should we-it's our country!

You know if the person didn't like it they should have just looked the other way! I mean come on really this is what it's come down to? I think we as a city, state, and country need to say enough is enough. I am ashamed as a citizen of King that this even went to a vote, of course seeing as how our city council has made such great choices in the past on what it should do for the city this doesn't surprise me, just addds more fuel to the angry fire I already have burning!

Gun Toter, thanks for reminding me that the well of human stupidity is nigh inexhaustible. Us libs are all about live and let live. At least, not the made-up bogey monsters that dolts like you seem to be so enamored of imagining.

Polling data from the 2001 ARIS study, described below, indicate that:

81% of American adults identify themselves with a specific religion: 76.5%(159 million) of Americans identify themselves as Christian. Source: < http://www.religioustolerance.org/chr_prac2.h... ;

Seems like we could get enough support to put an end to this maddness!!

Maybe we should just tear the park down & build a mosque?I always thought N.C.was a Christian state. Guess I was wrong. Way to go King.Pretty sad GOD or anything to do with GOD is bad.

So, so sad. Once again, Christians receive a blow, while all other faiths are allowed their religious freedoms to do as they choose. You cannot "offend" anyone (except Christians), you can't step on anyone's religious toes....take a look around at a government and a world without God and a place where you cannot say the name of Jesus without being considered a fanatic. It all keeps going farther and farther downhill...school shooting, kids killing parents, parents killing their babies, teachers with no morals molesting our kids that we trust them with, people hitting human beings and driving away like they were a pesky animal in the road. Bring God back into our world and give the devil the boot!! Okay guys, I am done.

"view from the pew" You my friend are absolutely right. It's just the principle of the matter that upsets me.

Here's an idea if they wanted to put it to a vote why didn't they let the Veterans that this park is a memorial to vote on it.

How about I threaten to sue for removing the flag? I have a heck of a lot more than $300,000 to screw King over with for their asinine decision. King you guys are a bunch of morons. Between this and suspending a citizens right to carry a firearm you are showing yourself to be no friend of Christians and firearms owners. I may have to stop patronizing King business until the people of King get enough sense to vote you idiots out (and replace that dunce of a police chief).
