Funny (political, religious) pictures

Also, the cognitive dissonance required to have the American and Confederate flags on the same pole is astounding.

Wait, they probably don't understand why that would be an issue in the first place. Nevermind.
 
Yes, that's pretty much what it means.

It gets even better! Their Thin Blue Line flag violates the US Flag Code, which prohibits the flag from being used or altered for advertising purposes or for clothing or whatnot.

Most people treat the flag code as "guidelines more than rules" (as they should, per the First Amendment), but the people who start frothing at the mouth about kneeling in protest for the anthem and 'disrespecting the flag' are also usually the ones with these altered versions of the flag, or flag clothing, or a dirty and torn flag flying off the back of their pickup. :rolleyes:

Fun fact, but people usually get around that by removing a star or stripe from the flag. Since very few people actually count the stars, and since removing a star making it not count as a "legitimate" American Flag, many companies like Disney can get away with putting flags up all over their parks that don't ever need to be sailed at half-mast or follow any type of flag regulations. Clothing apparel often do this too.

The Thin Blue Line flag likely gets around it by simply removing the flags colors, making it black and white, minus the single blue line. The guideline regulations have always been what to do with "legitimate" flags that have the proper colors, stars, and stripes, and not with "similar" flags.

I just want to say the flag code is stupid and if you want to advertise with a 50 star flag then why the fuck not.
 
Hey absolutely had to have whatever he was going to the store for, must have been one hell of a good deal.

I don't get it, why did the last guy start babbling at the end?
The story of the Tower of Babel was that, to stop the mortals from succeeding in building a tower to heaven, God made them all speak different languages (previously there had only been one language) and that's the church explanation for why we have different languages today.
 
Reaching to the heavens to take on God, building a high tower, tower of Babel, creation of all languages....
