From a story in USA Today:
"A poll released last week by the Freedom Forum First Amendment Center in Nashville found 63% oppose a flag amendment, up from 53% last year."
"Clearly, more Americans are having second thoughts about using a constitutional amendment to" instill respect for the flag, said Gene Policinski, the center's executive director. "Many Americans consider it the ultimate test of a free society to permit the insult or even desecration of one of the great symbols of the nation."
I am amazed at the hypocrisy here. The ACLU had little to say about the alleged Quran abuse, but are "concerned" that this law may pass:
The ACLU spokesman comments: "It's scary close," said Terri Schroeder of the American Civil Liberties Union, which opposes the amendment. "People think it's something that's never going to happen. ... The reality is we're very close to losing this battle."
Good! Let it be the first of many battles you begin to lose!
