With all this back and forth about the CSA battle flag, I keep thinking of two different verses. The first is Philippians 2:3-4 (http://biblia.com/bible/esv/Php2.3-4). The second is 1 Corinthians 6:12 (http://biblia.com/bible/esv/1Co6.12). 

Long story short, are we so hung up on defending our own rights and our own preferences that we're willing to spit in the face of brothers & sisters in Christ? Spin it however you want, and I've played the "states rights!!!!" game myself on more than one occasion, the CSA Battle Flag is inextricably linked with the Civil War, and the primary states' right at issue in the Civil War was the ability to own as chattel another human being. 

The swastika has its origins as a good luck symbol in ancient civilizations. The "n-word" was slang for Negro, and was innocuous in its origins. 

Regardless of an item's ORIGINS though, they take on cultural meaning specific to their current context. The Battle Flag is weighted down by such context today, and an infantile insistence on flying the flag "just because" serves no redeeming purpose. 

Sometimes we are called upon to set aside our own rights so that we won't be a stumbling block to others. 

Or, to put it another way, would you rather be right, or be in a relationship?

I'm having issues adding a feed to Feedly. The feed URL is http://bpnews.net/rss/ I know it's a good feed. My RSS feeds plugin in Chrome recognizes, the W3C Schools validator okays it, and various other online feed readers/tools will all display the contents. However, Feedly insists that there is no feed there.

Sweet 16 birthday present for my oldest. It's an iPhone easel. She loves to draw and sketch and uses her phone to look up pictures.

The build was inspired by a similar item done in plastic that I saw on Etsy. I still have to attach the prop leg on the back, but the primary build is done.
