Au contraire. I can clearly see the faux patriotism in your posts.  But thanks for your concern....ignation is sickening to many.

 

Humans can pray without a crucifix; and they can be patriotic without a flag, without a song or even  kneeling.  The rightous indignation is pathetic!

Are all of the fans at football games and other sporting events being "disrespectful to our flag" by sitting on their 'behinds' or wandering around the stadium, getting food or drink (etc), when the national anthem is being played? Or is that ........... oh, uh ............ white privilege?

You don't "get it" and never will. Carry on with your own fake indignation.

NC makes a valid point. I'll do a better job at calling out all disrespect to the flag.

Will we all do the same? without political bias? I'm committed... how 'bout you?

Yes or No will do. I'm a yes.


I will call out every instance of someone's Constitutional right to peacefully protest being hindered or taken away. That is what would have happened if the NFL owners had not stood behind those protesting. I will do a better job of "calling out" those who hinder another in exercising their Constitutional rights ..... how 'bout you ????

Perhaps, you didn't see the commentary posted early on - if you don't comprehend white privilige, then that is your problem, not everyone else's.    https://www.facebook.com/wfaachannel8/videos/10155033949226545/

Taking a knee is also no different than a Christian baker refusing to bake a cake for a gay couple, because he believes their lifestyle is prohibited by his religion. Anyone here defend the baker?

 

I won't defend the baker in this analogy. The reason is the baker singles out gays, because the Christian Old Testament prohibits gays. However the Christian Old Testament prohibits a lot of stuff, such as divorce, sex before marriage, tattoos, worshiping other gods, taking the Lord's name in vain, eating shellfish, so on and so on. Many of these religious crimes are punishable by death, according to the Bible.

 

However the baker only singles out gays. 

 

This tells me the baker is basically imposing his own Christian version of Jim Crow as applied to gays for basically the same reason Jim Crow is applied to blacks or other non-white peoples. Which is in my opinion to keep them in their place in society.

 

I don't believe that behavior is Christ like,  or acceptable as 2017 Americans,  or human beings.

1st Kudo for encouragement....

 

Welcome to the forum, DKarmol.....I hope you post here frequently.  new voices are needed.

 

To your post....

 

Let's see....not providing a service to one class of American that you provide others is discrimination and against the US Constitution according to the SCOTUS.

 

Kneeling in protest, permitted by the Constitution, doesn't discriminate against anyone.

 

How do you equate the two?  I don't agree there's "no difference".  Can you explain?

 

Again, WELCOME!
