    Would it be worth it? No. They decided it's best to just leave the hateful school. The girl is way better off anyway.

    The Confederate flag is no different except we're racist enough to tolerate it.
    Why would I care if they fly the Confederate flag? I don't assume those people who fly them are racists.

    People can say, to them, the cross symbolizes aliens. That does not change its purpose of creation. It does not change what the symbol means by creation.

    Symbols mean a million different things by association. But they only mean one thing by creation.
    The cross was a symbol used by pagans long before it became a symbol for Christendom...Hindus and Buddhists in India and China, and by the Persians, Assyrians, and Babylonians, all used the cross as an emblem for their religious and mystical purposes long before the Christian era...one reason I would not own/wear one...

    I'm not interested in excuses. I'm not interested in "but it means pink ponies to me". I'm interested in one thing: What was the symbol created for. People can take their subjective bs and shove it.

    I do not make excuses for their racist history.

    I'm not referring to you. You wouldn't fly the racist flag.

    Exactly, much more terrifying things to worry about in this world than a flag flyin' in the air...

    Then you agree with me. The important thing is the purpose of creation.

    Why not? I have friends who fly Confederate flags. And I have a friend who decorate his home with Confederate symbol. It's a bike group thing.
