The Cross and the Flag

This piece here by Roger Owens got me thinking about Romans 14:13-23. In thinking about scriptural matters, I pondered the confederate flag. I ask why do some of my Christian brothers and sisters say and post things on the Internet that are hurtful to me and others? Some of them use Romans to explain why Christians should not drink or engage in things that might cause another brother to struggle, yet they are okay telling others that I am too sensitive to the confederate flag. They offer claims that it does not represent white supremacy, though we continue to tell them it does. How can a brother seek to walk with Christ when another brother exhibits symbols of hate? Christianity offers too much good for individuals to promulgate mixed messages.
