    I still want to hear from the Episcopals on the board. So far, none have stepped forward. I find it hard to believe that there aren't any.

    The flag most certainly has meant racism, treason, slavery etc. to people in history - both in the Civil War era and more recent times. One can consider a symbol of something else, if you want. But it's been hijacked by the racists (much like the Nazis hijacked the swastika) and now you use it at your peril. A new symbol might be a good idea.
    Meh, let them keep their symbol. I like to know who the ignorant people are.

    Why? I'm technically Episcopal. What the hell do Episcopalians have to do with this thread?

    Are you aware of the Confederate symbolism on the Episcopal logo? Just wondering.

    I'd love to see evidence for this. Looks like its just the cross of St. Andrew, a common symbol among Christiandom.

    St. Andrews's Cross is a uniquely Confederate symbol?

    btw, the Polk Flag used St. Georges cross, not St. Andrew's.

    Never took a close look at the battle flag. Have you?

    Didn't think so.

    Thanks for playing.
