Why I Don't Sing The National Anthem

Here's a good, brief piece on the matter about the controversy at Goshen college.

I note with interest his mention of not having flags in their churches as something remarkable. Here in Britain, that is just normal.

When we see the prominent display of the national flag in churches in American television programmes, it always seems odd. We just don't do that in this country. Even the state church doesn't do it.

It seems as though Serbs are a bit like Americans in this respect. The biggest shock I had when walking into a Sebian Orthodox church in England was seeing the colours of the Serbian flag everywhere.
