M any of the marchers' T-shirts simply read, "Put our flag back."

A soldier fight a lonely battle for our freedom that take a life or their life be taken away from home.They serve our Country with pride and hope one day they will return . There are some do not come home at all .Some will remain missing forever and never know what happen to them.
Salty tears are shed and family waiting for loved ones to come home. Our Country was founded on Christianity and In God WE Trust . Different flags fly all the time and people looked at it, and nothing is said. So, let the Christian Flag -- Fly high. I know I am not from King, NC...but, I will try to find a Christian Flag to fly here.

I think you are confused as to what our soldiers fight for. They don't fight for the christian flag. They fight for the American flag and what it represents. If they don't fight for the American flag and our constitution they are horribly mistaken.

We are not founded on christianity. You are confused. And please don't try and tear at our heartstrings with this insipid story of soldiers sacrificing their lives for our christianity.

What other flags are speaking of flying at the king memorial with another religious affiliation?
