Stand up. Speak up
Continuing with my program of introducing our topics in every possible forum, I seem to have started a pleasant little dustup in a previously soporific Yahoo egroup. The group is officially for certain religious/liturgical/doctrinal topics, but hey, one member — a Catholic priest — played off Independence Day in drawing attention to the hellish state of this country and its new neocon-driven civil religion.
I jumped in and upped the ante a bit. Have had to lower it a couple times (e.g. by inviting members to contact me directly for further input). But just now I couldn’t resist laying a whole lot more goodies on them:
Personally I also think the various models of Confederate flag also make the perfect "political" statement inside church sanctuaries. They contain incorporating the regular "Latin" cross or St. Andrew’s cross. The main "Confederate flag" is, despite all the recent politically correct yap to the contrary, the universal symbol of popular resistance to oppression. It was waved as the Berlin Wall came down. I plan to start using the General (Bishop) Polk unit flag as a covering for our organ console — with no gold fringe, thank you very much.
"Today the Christian flag is one of the oldest unchanged flags in the world. It was conceived at Brighton Chapel, Coney Island, New York, Sunday, September 26, 1897, and was presented in its present form the following Sunday by its originator. Call it chance, or providence, serendipity, or the plan of God.
"……………The Christian flag is the only free flag in the world. It is different from every other flag, religious or secular, ancient or modern. It is uncontrolled, independent, and universal."
Might does not make right. Government is not God. Thanks, gang — /\/>>>
