North Carolina Church Flies ‘Christian Flag’ Above US Flag Saying: ‘God Is First’

Is this a good idea? A church in North Carolina has just raised the “Christian flag” above the American flag. It may not be a good idea but it certainly is an example of a backlash to Obama’s crusade to destroy Christianity in America today.

First of all, the “Christian flag” is not really a “thing.” By that I mean it is a sort of made up thing, not a real representation of any country or official organization. It is a representation of an idea more than an *official* banner of anything.

However, these people are responding to Obama’s war on Christians in the best, least violent way they know how. And the way things are going, you can certainly understand their ire.

A North Carolina church has sparked a debate with its decision to fly the Christian flag above Old Glory.

Elizabeth Baptist Church in Shelby, N.C., held a flag raising ceremony Sunday to hoist the Christian flag above the stars and stripes.

Rit Varriale, pastor of Elizabeth Baptist Church, was on “Fox and Friends” this morning to explain his church’s decision.

“God is first,” he said, adding that American culture has been pushing back against traditional Christian values for quite some time.

Varriale said that he’s a veteran who loves his country. He explained that he was willing to serve so that Americans could have the freedom to burn, spit and walk on the American flag, but also so that people would have the right to express their religious beliefs.

“I’m incredibly patriotic,” he said. “At the same time, I’m a Christian.”

So, what do you think? Is it a good idea to fly a flag above the American flag.
