Cross Spangled Banner

Cross Spangled Banner

In one of the most flamboyant cases of religious (and christian) oppression, the religious right is at it again. This time, they are trying to take away the flag, the symbol that is supposed to unite us all and make it blatantly christian. Recent affirmations by the Congress on the mottos "In God We trust" and "Under God" have ruffled the feathers of many non-believers, secularists and other religious people who worship many gods as exclusionary and perplexing given the serious economic issues of higher importance, but this takes it a step further.

As Christians, America is our responsibility second only to the Lord. And America has forgotten God.
This Christian flag of the United States is designed to do away with an arbitrary element: the star, which is proudly used, too, on the flags of China, North Korea, Vietnam, Pakistan, Somalia, Bosnia and, sadly, more like these.
What better way for us to bless the very nation we have built with the one universal symbol of His virtue?
This flag is a small symbolic act that contributes to the course of history and can help bring salvation to millions — every Christians responsibility.
For God and Country.

This is taken word for word from their website. Wake up, people, and realize that there are those who wish to take your civil liberties from you to make this a theocracy. They are actively trying to make this a christian nation above all else and doing it on many fronts, from marriage equality to personhood definitions to bullying homosexuals, to national mottos to foreign policy on Israel and other important issues to science education, and now to flags. It's time to stand up and have your voices heard that this is unacceptable. We will not sit idly by while you defame the freedoms we hold dear and that this country was truly founded on, freedom from religious persecution... that what your sinister flag means: religious persecution. You might as well be defecating on it or burning it.

This is the pledge of allegiance as it was before 1954, when Americans in panic from communist russia added those slanderous words "Under God":
