Once, on [US] Flag Day, I was listening to one of the local Bible radio stations, and the announcer was just going on and on about the flag and what it means and why it's so important to show it utmost honor, respect, and homage. I was forcefully struck by the irony: Here's someone who would be aghast at the idea of venerating an icon or statue of Christ or Mary, but he has no problem venerating a flag.
