Initially, I felt that if flag-burning was protected and that the cross burning took place with the permission of the property owner and was not done someplace where it was likely to intimidate anyone, then why not? Since then, I changed my mind. Cross burning is a form of terrorism. Even if done in private, I see it as terrorism training. What if some people took a fuselage of an airplane deep in the woods and practised hijackings? Like all of the hijackings, even prior to September 11, 2001, cross burning comes with a history of terror and murder. So the Klan of today is not the same as the Klan in the past? How many times do white supremacists need to motivate themselves with their views before they actually act upon them? Here's a link to a news story, if anyone is otherwise uninformed. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,72716,00.html Anyway, just thought I'd put this one out there to see what others think.
