Hey Kids, Which Is More Important????

wow, this one is just great
Three Yale University students, including a Briton and a Greek national, have been charged in a case involving the burning of a U.S. flag outside a Connecticut house, a court official said on Wednesday.
Anklesaria is British and Angelopoulos is Greek. Both are freshmen. Akbar, a senior, was born in Pakistan but is a U.S. citizen, according to police and court documents. Anklesaria and Angelopoulos turned over their passports.
Akbar worked as an informal translator for U.S. forces during the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan and later published a memoir, "Come Back to Afghanistan," about his experiences there, the Yale Daily News reported.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1989 that flag burning was protected under constitutional free-speech guarantees, invalidating laws in 48 states and outraging veterans' groups and others who say that an important national symbol should be protected from defacement.

"It makes me sick to my stomach to think that someone would burn the American flag," Marc Suraci, 37, owner of the two-story house, told the Register, describing himself as "very, very patriotic."

I always love this game...

For some reason these 'real patriots' keep forgetting that burning a flag is the way you dispose of one that has been desecrated. And it is always sooo much fun when folks are trying to shill protecting the symbol over protecting the substance....

I mean what is the point of making a Flag An Idol, and an Idol For Worshipping, over maintaining the substance of the US Constitution.... Which of course gets massively commical when the "patriotic ones" are the Christianists whining about "secular humanist idols"....


Can we say it loud, and proud?
