It is a tendency for Americans to merge God and country, even though the founders were careful not to. They understood theocracy in a deep and personal way. Many were escapees from governments that were also religions.
Not sure what the Bible has to do with the Confederate Flag. Christian soldiers, marching off to defend their property? Bollocks. The South has a rich history of independence marred by one of the oldest, most odious traditions in man’s evolution; a dependency on slave labor.
In Exodus, we read of how God allegedly led the slaves out of Egypt. Time to free ourselves of this flag. Release the south from this bondage.
