I'm from the south and I have a point to make.

Posted by madeline on August 31, 2006, at 7:05:58

Let me say that I am all about being from the south. I love it. I wouldn't live anywhere else. As a result, I see the confederate flag flying nearly every single day in one form or the other. Do I fly that flag over my house?
Absolutely NOT.
I know that to a whole lot of people that flag represents slavery, oppression and war. Therefore, being sensitive to those people, I support all efforts to ban that flag from public display, even though I may see it as a symbol of southern pride and nothing else. I don't care if they are right or wrong, those people offended by this flag have a right to have their feelings respected, despite how I may feel about the south and my pride in it.

I feel the same way about whether or not the jews killed christ. It shouldn't matter. To me, something, even if it just a statement, that has been exploited and used to justify anti-semitism is dangerous and disrespectful.
I think we are all entitled to our beliefs, but we are NOT entitled to use those beliefs to denigrate others.

Just my opinion.
