The best use of pallets I’ve seen is the great Pallet Maze at the Brown County Fair. The next best is the pallet bookshelf I built one afternoon long ago that now surely occupies a place of honor in some unknown renter’s furniture.
The Rondell Robins 4-H-ers also dig pallets… but pallets for theocracy?
I won’t throw a Flag Code flag—it’s a pallet, not an actual banner meant to fly from a pole, and I welcome creative interpretations of the American flag and the exploration of Stars-and Stripes symbolism.
So what does it mean to mingle the American flag and the Christian cross? What message does such a flag send to Americans who are not Christian? Christian readers, how would you feel if our 4-H-ers had palletized something like the Malaysian flag, with the U.S. stars reconfigured into a Muslim crescent to celebrate the Mohammedans among us and to suggest that their religion is patriotic, too? What about stars rearranged in the form of a Star of David, or Buddha, or maybe just a nice smiley face?
And Christians, as believers in a faith meant to counter and critique earthly powers, how do you feel about your symbol being merged with the banner of today’s Rome?
