Conservatives Hit Back

Conservatives and Christians are so often attacked over their beliefs that I rather enjoy seeing them occasionally striking back. And using the legal tools of their foes against the foes concerned seems fair play to me.

So when a school took its students to see the "Da Vinci Code" movie in school time, it seems fair to say that the school was sponsoring an anti-Christian movie (certainly an anti-Catholic one) and that such sponsorship violated the separation of church and state.

One group of Christian parents in Michigan said just that and registered a protest over it.

There should be more of it. If the Left get the invented "separation" doctrine used against them enough, they might actually come to oppose it!

The Decayed English

I am doing a roundup of recent and not so recent flag reports today, inspired by the latest news from England:

"Following warnings by extremist Islamic group al-Muhajiroun, in which the group said that the red cross in the England flag symbolizes the 'blood thirsty crusaders' and the occupation of Muslims, some of the largest companies in England have ordered their workers not to wave the flags".


American Kids Show the Way

From Denver:

"Several students at Shaw Heights Middle School have been disciplined for wearing shirts that depict the American flag, an act that is in direct violation of the public school's recent ban on all flags, depictions of flags, or flag colors on student clothing....

All of the students who were suspended said they had a connection to the military -- either they have a family member now serving or someone in the family had once served. They said despite the school ban, and even if it means another suspension, they will continue to wear their shirts.


Not OK to Burn the Mexican Flag?

It seems to be OK for Leftists to burn the US flag so why not the Mexican flag?

"A Tucson man arrested last month after burning a Mexican flag in protest plans to burn another one this weekend during public Cinco de Mayo festivities.

Roy Warden was arrested April 11, the day after he burned a Mexican flag while demonstrating against the flow of illegal aliens into the United States over the southern border"


Hard to imagine what he could reasonably be charged with as long as the flag concerned was his own property.

No Arrests in Mexico

A U.S. and a Mexican team played a soccer game last year which the Mexico team won. We read of the event:

"There was some booing and whistling during "The Star-Spangled Banner," but the Americans expected worse. After the game, about 100 people gathered for a peaceful celebration near Mexico City's Angel of Independence monument. A few first tried to burn, then trampled a small American flag while chanting "Osama! Osama!"
