  3. I should approach them and say that my grandfather who fought in WWII was a Muslim and therefore they should put a flag representing Islam up. That should reveal the hypocrisy.

  5. At least 12 Muslim-Americans died for Ol' Glory in Viet Nam. They and psybermonkey's gramps want the Crescent Moon hoisted.
    P.S. That's 8 more than the American Baptist Church

  6. What are the "Christian rights" that lady was talking about? Are those special rights only Christian get?

  7. PPS: According to the above stats, even fewer atheists died in Viet Nam. None, in fact. Look it up.

  8. Add my atheist grandfather who was a surgeon in the Navy in WWII.

  9. Of course, don't you know how it works? We're supposed to be grateful they begrudgingly tolerate us being American citizens so long as we keep quite and hide.

  10. Firstly, I don't think religions should have flags. Secondly, if they do have to have flags, I don't mind representing the beliefs of people who died - but they have to have EVERY flag to represent EVERY belief. And they all have to be displayed in an equal and fair manner.

    So why not propose flying flags for every belief instead of just one? (and that will include non belief, of course).

    This is something I've been thinking about - perhaps a new tactic for trying to get these narrow-minded believers to truly understand what religious freedom means, is to make sure if one religion is represented publically, they ALL have to. I wonder how much longer they will take their religions to the streets.

  12. "People who say there are no atheists in foxholes, haven't spent enough time in foxholes."

    My Dad, WWII Marine (9th Marines) and Korean War US Army badly wounded vet was an atheist till the day he died. I'm a former-Marine, Vietnam era, who is also an atheist.

  13. The commentator says "Supporters say removing the flag is a disgrace to veterans who fought and died to fly it."

    I would like any of these 75 christians to name one veteran who died in order to fly it. Funny, I thought they died for their country.

  14. It's another graven image, among many Christian graven images.

  15. The people they interviewed are so ignorant. at 0:57s in the old guy says something like "we cant let one person ruin it for the majority". First, the majority does not make something right. Second stuff like this was decided by the "majority" then the whole nation would be christian and religious freedom would truely be out the window and that would be bad for religion, as soon as the majority could abitrarily decide that catholics were no longer 'correct' christians in evangelical america.

  16. A christian flag? Who knew? I've never seen that thing before...ever.
    I would think that if Amercian veterans fought and died for any flag it would be the Stars and Stripes.

  17. Nice job vilifying the ACLU there, Faux News. Next time the NSA rapes your ass because you made a joke over the phone or you get copyright-raped by (other) copyright trolls don't come crying to it for legal defense.

  18. I think it is so good and you feel so easy when you work from home. At other way it is
    difficult too because when you have any problem there is no one to help out.
