Yes, you can actually buy one of these so you can remind “both Americans and those abroad, of the Virtue that this Great Nation was founded on.”

But are they safe to burn? Or will they give off toxic fumes? What a dilemma, having to choose between my free speech and my health!!!!

Welcome to the future. It’s a lot like the past.

The field of blue looks like a cemetery. Is the inference that America is built on Imperialism through military aggression?

This isn’t an example of dominionism IMO but instead an example of the ridiculous nonsense that is embraced as part of the American evangelical Christian subculture. Add to this such things as cross Christmas trees, Jesus pencils, GodSpace, etc. which even some evangelicals themselves have criticized. It’s materialist consumerism dress up as religion.

I think this flag gives a truer explanation of what this country stands for:

Is it weird that I feel conflicted over being discussed by this, when I’ve no problem whatsoever with an American flag with rainbow stripes?

When I justify it by thinking to myself, “well, theirs is in the spirit of ‘our way, and only our way,’ and ours is in the spirit of ‘us too.’,” is that a legitimate distinction…or just a convenient one?

Correction: “…conflicted over being *disgusted* by this…”

Five hidden messages in the American flag

I don’t know how to insert a link in these comments so you will have to cut and paste it out if you wish to read the article.
Using the flag for a political message tool is nothing new.
Sorry I am not in a place where I could watch the BBC program on this subject.

Christopher said “When I justify it by thinking to myself, “well, theirs is in the spirit of ‘our way, and only our way,’ and ours is in the spirit of ‘us too.’,” is that a legitimate distinction…or just a convenient one?”.

I think that is an accurate characterization of where both sides are coming from.
