The Christian American Response
The Christian American response to anti-American sentiment involves their belief in the freedom and equality of all people.
No American citizen should watch a US flag burn without also remembering the many American soldiers who suffered and died to free African Americans from slavery.
What is the response of Christian Americans to Americans who burn the American flag? The Christian response, which is based on their belief in the freedom and equality of all people, is that the burning of the American flag shouldn’t be looked upon without forgetting the many people who have died far from home in hopes of protecting the liberty of their nation. No American citizen should watch a US flag burn without also remembering the many American soldiers who suffered and died to free African Americans from slavery.
Those who burn the flag should also remember that they are free to do that because of the soldiers who have been willing to give up their lives to defend the principle of freedom of expression. What the families of those soldiers have gone through should also be kept in mind as people trample the flag and burn it in the street. What also shouldn’t be ignored is that those who trample on the flag also trample on ages of human effort to rise above the barbarity of their natural state, form more humane societies, and develop the idea of a free society.
The time and effort spent desecrating the flag would be better spent using the freedom the flag gives them to make positive changes in society that contribute to the advancement of freedom and equality. Burning the flag doesn’t speak against injustices concerning freedom and equality but instead insults the people who have been willing to die to stand against those injustices. Many people who burn the flag may not realize that, and they would hopefully turn from doing it if they realized what it really meant.
