A Freeper Not-So-Newbie, joined in May or so of 2003 after lurking for 9 months or so. A conservative Christian, a Dad, a Scout Leader, a musician. I work IT on the side.

Update 2008:

I've done some real soul-searching, based on this article: www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2091118/posts

As a result, here are the only flags I support:

Excerpted from wikipedia.org

St George Cross in the United States

For centuries, and as carried by crusaders throughout Europe during the crusades, it has long been referred to as "God's Flag". This interpretation of the Flag of Saint George as "God's Flag" was carried to America by early members of the Church of England and Anglican community in early American history. Rather than representing English nationality, and instead recognized in the United Sates as "God's Flag", provisions have been made in United States Code (US Flag Code as specified in 4 USC Title 7) as the only flag allowed to fly higher and in a superior position of the US National Flag in certain circumstances. The flag flown for religious purposes, rather than national, is generally in pennant form. See US Navy Church Pennant. This is in recognition of the fact that the US acknowledges itself to be a "Nation Under God". During this century, the US Navy has adopted a navy church pennant that replaces the red cross of St George with a blue cross.

I still believe in One Nation Under God

The Original Stars and Stripes

The Betsy Ross flag is an early design of American flag popularly attributed to Betsy Ross using the common motifs of alternating red-and-white striped field with white stars in a blue canton. The flag was designed during the American Revolution and features 13 stars to represent the original 13 colonies. The distinctive feature of the Ross flag is the arrangement the 5-pointed stars in a circle.

I still believe in the ideals set forth in the Constitution

The Lone Star flag

The Texas flag is known as the "Lone Star Flag" (giving Texas its nickname of the "Lone Star State"). This flag was introduced to the Congress of the Republic of Texas on December 28, 1838, by Senator William H. Wharton. It was adopted on January 24, 1839 as the final national flag of the Republic of Texas.

I believe in the Nation and Republic of Texas, paid for first in cash, then in the blood of patriots, then loosely united with the other 27 existing states in the United States of America

Flag of Israel

The flag of Israel was adopted on October 28, 1948, five months after the country's establishment. It depicts a blue Star of David on a white background, between two horizontal blue stripes. The blue color is mandated only as "dark sky-blue",[1] and varies from flag to flag, ranging from a hue of pure blue, sometimes shaded almost as dark as navy blue, to hues about 75% toward pure cyan and shades as light as very light blue.[2] The flag was designed for the Zionist Movement in 1891. The basic design recalls the Tallit, the Jewish prayer shawl, which is white with blue stripes. The hexagram in the centre is the Magen David ("shield of David"). It became a Jewish symbol starting in late medieval Prague, and was adopted by the First Zionist Congress in 1897.[1]

I believe that God's covenants are eternal and everlasting. What He promised to Abraham is still binding and in full effect.
