There is a chance that this latest attempt at a constitutional amendment will pass, allowing congress to pass a law prohibiting desecration of the flag. In the interim period between passing the amendment and passing the actual law, would you burn a flag in protest?
Personally, I would. I think the amendment is a desecration to the Constitution, actually. If this law passes it could lead to Congress supressing other forms of free speech, and we’d be that much closer to resembling our enemies. While it is still legal, I would publicly burn a flag in protest. After the law was passed, I’m not so sure I’d be willing to go to jail or pay a fine for the privilege. Maybe.
So would you burn a flag in protest?
