    Indigenous people have an ongoing claim to the Black Hills, site of Mount Rushmore.

    NC, so would you consider the American flag an idol?

    Sure. I do think it is a type of idol. It's not for me. I wouldn't spend pages on a forum defending it. For me it's a symbol, nothing more. Have one, don't have one, I'll still be an American. I don't have one. I still feel American and when I think about the Constitution, or even consider what I will be voting for, I have no problem focusing on American things.

    I also have no problem pledging to it, if that is the norm. I don't say 'under god', cuz it irritates me, but I say the rest.

    Some people idolize it. Burn one, and watch what happens. I think that's just silly to worry about it, but some people have it as an idol.

    That said, I don't have an issue with idols. I'm an atheist. I don't have to worry about offending any gods.

    Simon, remember the illustration used in one of the magazines or "Reasoning Book" dealing with your thread?

    "If your son was killed with a knife, would wearing a knife around your neck be a great way to honor him?" WTS used the "Gun" analogy.

    Happy New Year Mr. Simon! Wealth and Peace be with you in 2013, thank you for your hard work of bringing Jehovah's Witnesses a forum they can vent either direction, without feeling obligated to obey a group mind.

    Peace to your family!

    I'm pretty sure that Jesus is much more offended by the stupidity done in his name than he is by all the crosses.

    Tammy, do you celebrate Christmas or have you changed your mind on the Cross, Trinity or Hell-fire? Just curious, Christmas tree stuff is still bothering my conscience from secular non-JW sources, I respect your opinion as a fellow Christian on these matters.

    Flying High Now, there's plenty of anger to go around when Jesus come's back.
