Flags in Churches

October 19, 2001 (one month after 9-11)

The October 7 article on the flag was timely and appropriate.  When flags proliferate, it is good to be reminded of their significance.

As the article observed, when the flag of the United States of America is displayed with another flag in churches, it is placed to the speaker's right, the position of honor and superior prominence.  Then the audience facing him sees symbolic evidence that the speaker's allegiance to the United States of America is superior.
