Imagine all of the good these folks could do if they would quite standing around a christian flag and go out into the community and be true christians! I don't recall any stories about Jesus standing 24 hour vigil outside of churches...he was out preaching and helping others...

The guy that started this mess by complaining about the flag should be run out of town, but no one knows who he is as he is too scared to reveal his identity. Move some where else loser if you don't like it.

this is a great story. one jerk tries to have a small cross removed from a memorial in which vets have placed in memory of their fallen brothers and now the community has stood its ground on the issue. now there are flags and crosses placed all over the city of king. talk about a plan backfiring.lol.. thats awesome. may this be a lesson to politically correct liberal america.

this is still a nation where we are founded in christian beliefs. that image of a soldier kneeling in front of a tombstone(in the shape of a cross) and all of the grave markers in the arlington cemetery only shows that our forefathers had strong religious beliefs and cannot be simply erased from history because some of us as a people have grown sensitive, and weak. many americans have accepted the idea that we should give up our christian heritage and our christian beliefs because it offends the minority who has moved to our "free" land or offend those who worship the muslim religion or choose to not believe that there is a higher power than themselves.

they took prayer out of schools. how did that work out for them? the stats show an insane increase in all that is "bad" after that move.(look it up yourselves)at what point will the offended minority be satisfied with the removal of all that is Christ like. do they not have more offensive issues to stand against (like rapist murderers and thieves who are released from jail to re-offend)or something more important than a small "offensive" cross. we push tolerance for everything except allowing a small cross on city property.funny huh.

this is just my humble opinion and i guess everyone is entitled to one. i'm not even going to respond to any of the negative posts i read because some people will never get it. they will continue to go through life with "hate" toward those who try to live a "Christian" life. this is a bigger issue than a small cross and a kneeling soldier. its about what that cross means to those who placed it. it gave them new life and hope in a confusing world which many who fight against them will never understand. thanks to those who have chosen to take a stand. God Bless.

The ones who started this mess are the ones who allowed a religious flag to be placed on government property. You shouldn't feel such hatred towards someone who was standing up for his rights.

Matthew 6:5-6: "And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men....when thou prayest, enter into thy closet and when thou has shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret...."

Your Jesus said to pray in private. He also said not to have open displays of your faith, as all that was for was to draw attention to yourself.

"Jesus....decries giving alms openly, praying in public...Jesus points out that if it is human acclaim that is wanted, then...that is all the reward that is likely to come."

It would appear that Jesus promoted private prayer, and condemned public prayer. A Bible-believing Christian would logically oppose prayer in school and other public places.

Ebane - Do unto others as you would have others do unto you doesn't seem to fit ... Golden Rule is not from the Holy Bible. You might wanta check ur info.
It's not a bad idea however, like "Cleanliness is next to Godliness." Praise be to God.

These people are not there to be in prayer as they have stated that they are there to make sure the flag stays flying. In other words, they are standing vigil over the flag (and cross) to make sure it stays there.

Yea, Jesus dd a lot of good. Lol...He lived on earth for about 33 yrs. and left with no evidence for his existence. His followers have done such a great job of leading: The Christian Wars, torture, plundering, pillaging, rape, murder, all in the name of God, The Inquisition, Spanish Inquisition, Jerry Falwell, Jim Baker, Martin Luther, catholic priests' pedophilia, Jimmy Swaggert, Bishop Eddie Long. Boy, he left a lot of great role models to look up to didn't he? But the worst role model was Jesus himself. Speak the great words he spoke on sermon on the mount then when no-believers die they get to go to an eternal hell of torture and suffering. That praying does a lot of good doesn't it? What great compassion. Do unto others as you would have others do unto you doesn't seem to fit Jesus. No matter, because Jesus was such a hypocrite then we know why all of his followers and are so cruel and hypocritical.
Ebane, you are in en extermely sad state of mind and PRAYER, LOTS of it, is what you are in need of. I will not respond to any of your false and rediculious statments of Jesus, as they are not worthy of a response. Talk about hate...the ONLY hate I have seen or heard since this had began, has been agianst Christians, which is exactly why we as Christians, will fight this battle with all that we have. In the end, Christians will be victorious, and you (all non-believers) will bow before God and proclaim he is God regardless of you believe so or not...May God have mercy on your soul, as the devil has complete control over your life....

The truth hurts. You are too blinded by your faith to question it. Keep living in your cocoon of belief. Don't ever grow and question. Don't ever see the world and religion for what it is. It is belief and faith that is the problem. The less atheism the worst the world will be. The more blind faith we have the worst the world will be. Look at countries that have little to no atheism and you will find ignorance, crime poverty dominate. Check out crime rates in states with more atheism. Atheists think and reason. People of faith are blinded by their faith. It is not a positive quality to bow your knee and head and blindly follow. A person of faith displays his laziness to learn and observe. Good luck with that. Instead of praying why don't you do something constructive like truly helping others. Quit trying to show everyone that you are Christian and live it. Christianity is dying a slow death.

I knew you would show up sooner or later. I am happy to see that you have given my Lord and Savior the respect of using a capital letter for his name. Thank you! Maybe there is hope for you.
