    Didn't think so.
    St. Andrews Cross - yes. And?

    Leonidas Polk - nope. But I just looked him and I'm unmoved. What's your point?

    I hope that's now what he's trying to say since that is a blatantly false and ridiculous statement, particularly as it pertains to the Episcopal Flag(s).

    The only ignorance I've seen is the pro-north/Anti-Confederate Flag side, which got handily schooled BTW.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    At least I came up with a source a hell of a lot better than YahooAnswers.

    And, you got all kinds of paper hanging on the wall, too.

    Looked into getting your money back, yet?

    I remember at least one other time when you claimed to have "schooled" me. I asked you to prove it and you did NOTHING.

    This seems to be your M.O.

    The symbol was created after the Civil War and is synbolic of Leonidas Polk's service in the Confederate Army.

    I think he's suggesting that the Episcopal flag was made by Polk.

    Ive seen no evidence of this. And even if it were, the Polk flag is nothing like that Stars & Bars.

    You didn't even realize you were beat, I gave up on you. Don't confuse that with winning.
