I don't like this. It makes it all that harder to spot the idiots, when they aren't just burning the flag right in front of you.
Seriously, I do think that flag-burning should be protected speech. I don't like it when people burn the flag, but I like that they have the freedom to do so.
I also don't like the totemic nature of the amendment. When we removed God from all spheres of public office, we seem to have begun the process of transferring our need for the sacred to State objects. Render under Caeser.....
