Stand for the Flag, Kneel for the Cross (Mini-Blog #21)

shirt-1536834333-e0e64505ca726f67f39dcbdced7c8466To any folks posting, “Stand for the flag, kneel at the cross.”

Why is kneeling seen as such a disrespectful act? If kneeling here is so dishonoring for the flag, then why is kneeling every acceptable, especially for the cross?

Why do you insist on thinking that kneeling is a sign of disrespect? It is not a sign of disrespect.

I was Episcopalian for a good bit of time in my life, and in the Episcopal Church, and other churches, they kneel at certain parts of the service and practice something called genuflecting which is a form of kneeling as well, but out of a sign of respect and reverence.

Kneeling during prayer is about contriteness and sincerity, to show humility.

There is nothing in flag etiquette that says kneeling is a sign of disrespect.

Why are you being so inconsistent? Kneeling for the flag? Disrespectful (despite etiquette not addressing it)! Kneeling for Jesus and the cross? Respectful.

This is complete and utter bullshit and one of the most inconsistent, logical fallacies I hear from this group.

Kneeling has historically always been a sign of respect. Consistently a sign of respect and honor.
