46. Many would argue that the flag does have deep spiritual significance -
- and our military lays their life on the line for it so I can't agree that there's difference between the two. Guess it depends on your viewpoint.

To me this is the NYC Mosque/Community Center debate turned around. Some object that the center is disrespectful, lacks empathy, and shouldn't be built while others maintain its within their Constitutional rights to build it. How can we argue that its ok for the Community Center to be built even though it is upsetting to some yet also argue against the koran burnings for the same reason? Both are within their Constitutional rights to do so. I don't see where money impacts liberties and certainly the community center will raise funds as well.

I think the best we can hope for in this situation is that the fire permit isn't issued and the fire chief puts an end to it on those grounds.
