The Dangers of Relativism

Only in San Diego… for now…

The main headline at Drudge and a topic on the Sean Hannity Radio Show this hour deals with a report out of San Diego in the wake of the immigration protests last week. The school board decided to ban ALL kinds of patriotic garb, including wearing the colors red, white, and blue.

Red, white, and blue symbolize the colors on America’s flag–a flag that has stood for hope, liberation, economic and religious opportunity around the world for hundreds of years. So the way to deal with the immigration issue is not just to ban the Mexican flag, but also, apparently, the American flag!?!? This kind of relativism is dangerous in every manifestation in the Culture Wars. I would not have taken these steps and the School Board that approved this should lose their jobs in the next election!

What happens if you possess it but only for the purposes of burning it?

Sounds a bit like smoking pot but not inhaling.

Sounds as if you guys are getting the same crap from the do-gooders as we are. No mention of Christmas or Easter in schools because it might offend other religions. I don’t object to mention, discussion, whatever you call it of all religious observances as we live in a multicultural country. As I am happy to tolerate discussion of their observances I expect the same in return but the mad lefties seem to think we should be inflicted with ‘white man’s guilt’ and be all multicultural while denying our own culture.

Now that statement is not in any way meant to be racist or culturally offensive, just to demand the same courtesy as we try to extend to other cultures and religions.

As I’ve already mentioned before, I have little or no time for organised religion, but have all the time in the world for the original pure philosophy behind them all. – Do good, try to lead a ‘christian (insert other observance if you wish)’ lifestyle, have faith in your ‘Supreme Being’ if that is your philosophy, with tolerance of other’s views.
