    Ive seen no evidence of this. And even if it were, the Polk flag is nothing like that Stars & Bars.
    Nope, never made that claim. But don't let my actual comments get in your way. Keep fabricating.

    Yup. And you are still losing. Now that we have established what everyone is up to let's get back to you guys finally proving your case.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

Every day you lend more credence to the old saying 'give them enough rope and they will hang themselves."

    And I still do not know what you are raving on about. And its obvious that neither do you.

    Re: Is the Confederate flag a symbol of treason?

    Dear Apdst,

    The Episcopal flag was not adopted by the Church until 1940 and it was created in 1918. Here is explanation of the flag's design by its creator:


    “The red cross is the oldest Christian
    symbol dating back to the third century.
    The white represents purity and the red the
    b l o o d o f t h e m a r t y r s . T h e b l u e i s
    ecclesiastical blue, light in color, and used
    in the clothing of the Blessed Virgin Mary
    and on this flag represents the human
    nature of our Lord which He got from His
    virgin mother.
    “ The nine cross-crosslets or Jerusalem
    crosses represent the nine dioceses that
    convened in Philadelphia in 1789 when the
    Constitution of the Protestant Episcopal
    Church was adopted with its House of
    Bishops and House of Clerical and Lay
    Deputies and the Book of Common Prayer.
    “The nine cross-crosslets are set in the
    form of a St. Andrew’s cross in memory of
    the fact that, to avoid swearing allegiance
    to the British Crown, Bishop-elect Samuel
    Se abury of Conne c t i cut had to go to
    Scotland to be consecrated by Scottish
    bishops.

    I see no mention of the Confederacy.

    Love,
    What are you talking about?

    Ohhhhhh! Now ya'll are screaming for evidence! You didn't seem to need evidence for your wild ass claims. So far, the closest thing actual docs any of you have produced is Haymarket's YahooAnswers link.

    Funny how ya'll suddenly want supporting documentation, when you didn't think you needed for your own ****.

    so you're saying you have no evidence for your claim?
