flag burning

14 07 2006

I’ve wondered before what I thought about the issue of flag-burning, as in just how serious an issue it is.  Not that I would ever do it, but there are cases where people burn flags in protest, and there’s a debate whether that falls under free speech or should be punished.  Then someone pointed out how the Pledge of Allegiance for our country references the flag, and that puts it in a different light.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to The Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

And so what are flag-burners saying?  If they are doing the opposite of pledging allegiance to our country, then that could be a very serious issue…
