I was wondering whatever happened to the Knights Templar.

Ok, I'll own it. We DO have some serious nut jobs in my home state. Keeps things entertaining though.

At least they flew it below the U.S. Flag. In Texas it would have been at the same height.

COMING SOON TO A MOSQUE, SYNAGOGUE, OR TEMPLE NEAR YOUR!

Whatever rocks their boat. It's a 'shake of the head' decision I reckon.

Until a few years ago the Stars and Bars was flown atop the Alabama state capitol dome.

It was often even flown without the United States flag.

Now its flown right next door, the grounds could be same same as the state capitol grounds, on the steps to the capitol of the confederacy.

Hopefully the ACLU will be all over that.

GA flew a version of it too back then.
Things change. Slowly sometimes but they change nonetheless.

My daughter attends a small Ag college in South GA. Here friends are from small farming communities in rural parts of the SE. Their attitudes are much more open than their parents were. Their children's will be even more so.

The only Christian flag I've seen is that of the Vatican. Bet they wouldn't approve of that one.

In the old days when radio and TV stations signed off for the night and signed back on in the morning, Alabama stations would play Dixie before the Star Spangled Banner. I always wondered "WHY?"

We Episcopalians have a better looking flag. Why not ours? Oh, that's right. This is Georgia and we are Closet Papists.

The Knights Templar are still going strong, but only as ceremonial troops of grey-haired gents, similar to the Knights of Columbus, who carry swords, but never as military units.

Maybe they just wanted a headline? Nah, maybe they're just parochially small minded.

Those ain't shoes, they look like sneakers. At least they could have worn green crocs!

Every flag with a cross or an X , whether Confederate or Norwegian, uses a Christian symbol.
