    well i have no problem with what flag anybody flies so long as the American flag is flown above it. their loyalty should be to America first.

    Umm, no. It can be level with, but not higher than the Colors. I'm sure that my Jewish wife would be glad to know that your statement is "as it should" be, though. Especially since the Christian faith was born from the Jewish tradition. But that is another thread entirely. (I am a southern baptist, fwiw.)

    Not according to US law, and the majority of sites that I found with information on the Christian flag. The thing is, is that there are many other religions in this country besides the Christian faith. It IS NOT the be all, end all religion here. To say that it is goes against the very reason that this country was founded to begin with. Like I said, I am faithful, and I am a believer, but this is where I separate myself with a portion of people from my faith.

    Thing is,countries come and countries go.The U.S.could fall tomorrow,but the Christian will remain.
    Not country,family or self comes before it.Law is one thing,but we live by our conscience.
    I don't believe God recognizes a piece of cloth in the breeze to begin with.So I guess the discussion is actually for naught.However if law is how you state it to be on the subject,our Church will take down the American flag so not to be in violation.We too are Baptist.

    The US Flag always flies above other flags. Even in foreign countries it flies above or not at all.

    That is what I was taught in school and the military.

    Being Baptist doesn't mean being above the law no matter what your feelings are. In this country the American Flag flies higher than other flags. In other countries it flies level with the host countries flag it never takes a subservient position. There is no nation called Christian and trying to place a church in the same category as a nation is like comparing Kumquats to apples, 2 completely different subjects. Don't confuse your Christianity with your nationality.

    Geez, I've never seen an argument before over whether the American flag or Christian flag flies higher. It is true when flown side by side on poles no flag should fly higher than the American flag. That said, I have been in a number of churches that displayed the Christian flag, it was always on the inside of the church with the American flag on one side, the Christian flag on the other AT EQUAL HEIGHTS.

    It isn't like anyone is asking it to be a choice of one over the other. I don't think our government has ever sought to reign supreme over our faith. In fact in the Marine Corps we were told that our motto "Semper Fidelis" meant always faithful to our God , our country, and our Corps...IN THAT ORDER.

    Let's not make an issue where none exists.

    Congrats by the way to Cody and the patriots who supported him. One thing about standing up for the flag...when you do somebodies always got your back.
