Jesus v. American Flag
Your liturgy's in my dogma. Your dogma's in my liturgy!
SpinDentist writes: "in a Catholic School in Bridgeport, CT... a teacher who has refused to wave the flag has now been fired. His personal beliefs were that the flag undermined his religious beliefs."
"'The crucifix cancels all flags,' said Kobasa, a longtime peace activist. 'Christ speaks of compassion without boundaries. ...Flags are about separation, assertions of superiority and aggression. The whole notion that loyalty to country is connected to one's religious faith is totally bizarre and unjustified.'"And the school? Well, they strike the quintessentially Christ-like attitude, The Stonewall: "It is not our policy to comment on any internal personnel matter." Now, I'm not one of those people who believes that Jesus was a liberal or anything like that.
I think he was more of a socialist... (AllSpinZone)
