"I can't help but think that the folks who want this flags firmly in place are the same ones who want school prayer to be part of the curriculum."
That's what puzzles me. You'd think those would be the very people who'd recognise flag-worship as a kind of idolatry, and who'd be determined to fight it to the death. More especially so long as reverencing "the flag" isn't even accompanied by any kind of prayer.
What I'd have expected woudl have been that they'd be saying that, so long as there is no place in schools for prayers and religious symbols, there should be no place for any lesser symbols such as flags.
