I live in King and an one of the veterans with a service plaque at the memorial.I feel it is disrespectful to reprecent and favor only one of the religions of the service men honored here. No one asked me which religous flag or flags to fly at the memorial. I would have said fly all religous flags or fly none. Religion isn,t dictated or establiced by majority rule.

Seriously. So many people posting on this board don't seem to have a clue what the law is on this topic.

No kidding! It's amazing how some folks are against the ACLU when it is the organization out there protecting our freedom of speech and religion. And also protecting our US Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence.
