Default Re: Flag Burning

No it shouldn't be against the law, the flag is a symbol and everything can be a symbol. For instance a tree is a symbol, to me, of peace and nature, but people burn trees all the time. In essence by burning a flag you are burning a piece of cloth, to some that cloth symbolizes something, and the burning of that cloth is also a symbol. This would be freedom of expression, even though many view it as an act of hate.
