I AM OLD GLORY

[36]
Posted: Sep 30, 2017 12:08 PM
 

I fly atop the world's tallest buildings.
I stand watch in America's halls of justice.
I stand side by side with the Maple Leaf on the worlds longest undefended border.
I fly majestically over institutions of learning.
I stand guard with power in the world.
Look up and see me.

I stand for peace, honor, truth and justice.
I stand for freedom.
I am confident.
I am arrogant.
I am proud.

When I am flown with my fellow banners,
my head is a little higher,
my colors a little truer.
I bow to no one!I am the Statue and I stand for Old Glory
I am recognized all over the world.
I am honored - I am saluted.
I am loved - I am revered.
I am respected -- and I am feared.

I have fought in every battle of every war for more then 200 years. I was flown at Valley Forge, Gettysburg, Shiloh and Appomattox. I was there at San Juan Hill, the trenches of France, in the Argonne Forest, Anzio, Rome and the beaches of Normandy, Guam, Okinawa, Korea and KheSan, Saigon Vietnam.
Know me, I was there.

I led my troops, I was dirty, battle worn and tired,
but my soldiers cheered me, And I was proud.
I have been burned, torn and trampled on the streets of countries I have helped set free. It does not hurt, for I am invincible.

I have been soiled upon, burned, torn and trampled on the streets of my country. And when it's by those whom I've served in battle -- it hurts.
But I shall overcome -- for I am strong.

I have slipped the bonds of Earth and stood watch over the uncharted frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon.
I have borne silent witness to all
of America's finest hours.

But my finest hours are yet to come.
When I am torn into strips and used as bandages for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I am flown at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent at the grave of their fallen son or daughter, I am proud.

I am Old Glory, Long May I Wave, Long May I Wave.

Exodus 20:3-5.....


Posted: Sep 30, 2017 2:51 PM
 

3. You shall have no other gods except me.
4. You shall not make for yourself any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above or that is in the earth beneath or that is in the water under the earth;
5. You shall not worship them nor serve them; for I the LORD your God am a zealous God, visiting the offenses of the fathers upon their children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me

The American flag in not a God! Nobody is worshiping it.

It is to be respected not disrespected. You need to go back and get the true meaning of what you posted.

Stings doesn't it when Bible verses go against your belief system and at the same time you claim God and the Bible

Go read Ezra 4:15. Stop trying to be self righteous


ain't being self righteous, only mentioned the Bible a handful of times...


Posted: Sep 30, 2017 5:55 PM
 

since I've been on tnet. And only posted three verses, and didn't even expound upon it. I see that it stung you too. Are you going to tell this to all the people who bring up God, or just the ones who point out a verse or verses that contradicts your belief system?

See there you go again. It didn't sting me because I'm a born again believer. Seems like you need to take a long look in the mirror and stop using the Bible to try and push your agenda. There's a big picture here, maybe try to look at the whole thing.


that's all you, I just posted a verse and you took issue with it...


Posted: Oct 1, 2017 3:05 AM
 

So I don't know why you're carrying on about a mirror, because I didn't have a problem with those verses like you did

No flag is my God. I kneel before God and stand for my flag as God commanded.

Yes to the OP. You just needed to be put in your place like any other common pest.


Where in the Bible does it state to stand for a flag?***

Your misuse of the Holy Scripture is offensive and misguided.
Good thing the God of those scriptures forgives us all if we only ask him to.
Have a great Sunday as we worship our Heavenly Father!
Thanks to all the many many souls who sacrificed serving our country and yes our God under the flag of the USA!
God Bless America!

The President has made this a mess---when we have an idiot in Chief the nation will go down the
tubes by stroking hate between americans. You are simply adding to the flames by giving his point of view more attention

Yeah, because surely others beside the President can't believe in honoring our flag as the symbol of the greatest nation in the world.

You're a coward! You have no moral basis to protest our anthem. Let me guess in the third verse where it gives reverence for slaves that even fought against the British you're offended? Well I agree, slaves barely made an impact and maybe they should have been left out. However Francis Key Scott decided to honor them as well. You're a moron!

How is celebrating slaves being murdered an honor to slaves?...


Posted: Sep 30, 2017 6:01 PM
 

You have one sick mind. By the way I wasn't the one who td'd your post. Just responding to the "honor" claim

It's not celebrating anything, or anyone being murdered. It's honoring their sacrifices as well as the other men who fought to overthrow the Royal Rule of the British. Read a history book.

You are making a FALSE STATEMENT to fit whatever agenda..

[1]
Posted: Oct 1, 2017 9:44 AM
 

you have. The REAL third verse is nothing like you suggest!
"Let me guess in the third verse where it gives reverence for slaves that even fought against the British " TOTAL and UTTER BS!!!!
The ACTUAL THIRD VERSE from the original manuscript of the Maryland Historical Society Collection(with Francis Scott Key's original hand writing):

"And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash'd out their foul footstep's pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave."

"Hireling and slave" is an INSULTING reference to the Hessian Soldiers from Germany the British used, who were hired mercenaries who often were drafted peasants with no choice about being hired out by their lords to fight in foreign wars. Want to try and make up something else to fit your own little agenda you are trying to force down other people's throats?
