    So what? Isn't that the kind of freedom our country is supposed to stand for? Aren't people free to dislike the government if they want?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I didn't say there was anything wrong with it. It was said that people burn the flag because they dislike the USA enough to set on fire the very symbol of it. To which I said, or they dislike the US government enough to set on fire the very symbol of it. Making a difference in burning the flag related to the government as opposed to the country itself.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I think it should be allowed.
