I was driving around today and saw one very large flag flown at half staff today. I couldn't remember anyone important dying in the last day or so. So I pondered it to my dh and he said "what day is today" I said "Good Friday"....He gave me a knowing look.
I have never seen or noticed anyone ever flying a flag at half staff for Good Friday in honor of Jesus. I thought it was wonderful.
Have you ever noticed it?
Not trying to get a debate or start anything was just curious. I guess since I am usually at work on Good Friday I never noticed it before.
The flag was actually flown today to show respect for our local Florida State Representative Clay Ford who passed away.
The flag was in front of a car dealership.
regardless of those who want to vomit at the thought of it being flown at half staff in honor of Jesus, I still think its an awesome idea, and you can agree with it or not. Why should Christianity be the only religion that is being repressed openly in this country? Everyday in this supposedly FREE country Christianity takes hits in one way shape or form because it offends someone.
I am offended by the Islamic extremists who attacked our country on 9/11. Are you offended by them? Are you offended that they were trying to build a Mosque near where the Twin Towers were? I am. Is anyone going to do anything to offend them NO, can't do that, that wouldn't be right. They have the freedom of religion in this country.
I just love double standards!!!
I made an update also on page 7 (I think), with some historical facts on the founding fathers and some statements made by the Supreme Court.
