Christian Flag Mystery

Friday, July 1st, 2011 by JEL

Last October I wrote a post about the Christian flag. I had never heard of such a flag and I ‘fessed up as such. Now, this blog is on the WordPress platform and when you go into the back-end, you can see all sorts of stats about how many people came to the blog, which pages they visited, and what search terms they used to find it.

Well, day after day, many people find us by searching for “christian flag.” Given that only one post out of a couple hundred dealt with the flag, I’ve been a bit mystified. So I went to Google and typed in “christian flag,” thinking I’d see our post pretty high in the search results.


I went through quite a few pages and never found us. So the mystery deepens. How are people interested in the Christian flag finding us, and why are they coming to a site that deals with our book and trying to set the message straight about Jesus’ teachings. If you have any info, pass it along in the comments.

There’s a Christian Flag?

Learn something new every day. Until today I had no idea there was such a thing as a Christian flag. Funny, I don’t remember reading about it in any of the Gospels. But I digress.

Christian FlagHave you been following the story about King, North Carolina? They have a Veterans Memorial in one of their parks and a Christian flag was flying there. Somebody complained that it was a violation of the First Amendment (separation of church and state) and asked that it be removed. King’s city council voted 3-1 to take the flag down and then people got upset. Here’s one complaint:

“Americans are slowly losing their religious freedoms and liberties. One day we’re going to wake up and find out liberties are completely gone. We’ve got to do something about it.” – Larry Reeves of King, member of Calvary Baptist

I agree with him on losing our liberties (Patriot Act anyone?). But where is the loss of religious freedom? There were others on hand:

“Stirring up this mess goes against Jesus, who preached peace and tolerance for all people. This seems to be intolerant of other people. There was once a dude named Adolf who had a flag and got all amped up about it. Think about it. Jesus just wants us all to get along.” – Colin Covington of King
