Ban religious expression on national flags

odi
Sam_Cecil

Expression related to any religious views must be banned from national Flags by the UN. There are many religions around the world and countries must not get to choose which religion they represent. Globalization aims to unite the world but this only leads to separating nations on a religious basis. We can see it in the present world conflicts the US and its fellow allies are involved in.

Because if we do- openly- it will be called racist, sexist, homophobic, or ignorant. The truth is that people are very afraid of the Tyranny of the Politically Correct. And this has led to a kind of "personal censorship" where people only can speak on certain subjects, and i...
