Should It Be Legal To Burn the Federal Flag?

8 12 2006

“Desecration” means “to divest of a sacred character or office.” Is the American flag, battle emblem of the
U.S. government, supposed to be “sacred”? Are we to make a religion of statolatry? What sort of grotesque religion is that? And what is “desecrate” supposed to mean? What specific acts are to be outlawed? Burning seems to be the big problem, although the quantity of flag- burning in the United States seems to be somewhere close to zero.
