    I expected a spate of angry comments. I guess Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t read comics either.

    Guess again, people.
    Learn before you spout things you know little about.

    The Encyclopedia Americana says: “The flag, like the cross, is sacred.” The flag is the symbol of the State. Therefore, bowing down to it or saluting it is a religious ceremony that gives reverence to the State.

    Given that the pledge of allegiance to the country or to the flag is virtually a religious expression, it should be obvious that such action would be in conflict with those who believe allegiance only belongs to God.

    In 1943 the Supreme Court ruled in the West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette case that public school students are not required to say the Pledge, concluding that “compulsory unification of opinion” violates the First Amendment. In a later opinion, the Court held that students are also not required to stand for the Pledge.

    Encyclopedia Americana is spewing the typical liberal garbage. I have never thought of the flag as asacred object, but do love my country.

    If the Encyclopedia Americana isn’t your cup of tea, try the following:
    “Early flags were almost purely of a religious character… The national banner of England for centuries – the red cross of St. George – was a religious one; in fact the aid of religion seems ever to have been sought to give sanctity to national flags, and origin of many can be traced to a sacred banner.”
    Encyclopedia Britannica (1946)

    “[Historian] Carlton Hayes pointed out long ago that the ritual of flag-worship and oath-taking in an American school is a religious observance… And that these daily rituals are religious has been at last affirmed by the Supreme Court in a series of cases.”
    The American Character (New York, 1956)

    Though opinions may vary, the facts remain the same as borne out by secular recordings.

    Jehovah’s Witnesses are a cult. But using God’s name in vain is not right. I’ll guess tomorrow comic by Rick Stromoski will be about Muslims’ Allah, right, or about Native Americans’ Manitu, right? Well, no, that would be islamophobia, racism, etc.? Only Christianity can be mocked by the Liberal, tolerant, culturally sensitive, peace-loving people of the West today…
