Is it illegal? Wouldn't bother me in the least if they did, as long as it was not on MY property.

This woman was wrong in changing the lyrics to the National Anthem. It was an insult to the Anthem, IMO. She should be barred from any future appearances at city functions. It was simply not the right thing to do.
I can't wait, currently restoring my 71 caddy for the party.

As a form of self expression it is protected under the first amendment. Same as the act of burning the American flag in protest is protected. Or gathering to protest the IHATEFAGS church.

Now, burning the cross as a form of intimdation or as a threat against an individual or group, pretty sure that is not protected under that amendment.

Here's the thing I never understood about the KKK. They are basically a WASP group, so why do they burn crosses? Wouldn't that be like desecrating their holy symbol? Not that I would expect anything that the KKK does to make sense.

Maybe it has something to do with the fire and brimstone, or maybe the power of the burning bush.

I don't get it either. Seems like it would equate to a U.S. Marine reciting the pledge of allegiance while holding a burning flag. Does not make any sense at all.

Whoa................back the horse up. I'm not going to let you claim that Christians have anything to do with the KKK without backing it up with real literature. Don't be one of those tools, that you claim all Christians are. Back it up with a true resourse.

KKK burnt the crosses in the front yards of Baptist Churches and Catholic (most protestant) as well as minorities yards ....................They were not Agnostic Churches being targeted.

To me, the statement you just made is similar to the KKK, except you desire to destroy us through your words and political actions.

the KKK is a Christian group, but that doesn't mean all Christians are racist.

The reason they burn crosses is to "bask in the light of Christ"

um, ok, you were awfully quick to jump on the persecuted christian bandwagon here. what is the problem with what I said? I said that the KKK is a WASP group. I don't remember ever seeing any black or jewish KKK members or atheist KKK members. So what was the problem here? how could I have phrased it to better suit your liking?

edit: I supposed I could have inserted a disclaimer saying I don't believe that all christians are members of the kkk, but you'd have to be a complete moron to take that away from what I originally said. ;) good day.

I only posted the cross burning statement based on if it is done, it is "bad" and racist, but she can sing the "black national anthem" and of course thats not racist

How many KKK members have you seen, and do you know, that you can verify are not Jewish ( Im making the presumption you mean the religion ), or atheist, or even black for that matter.

The fact that this made so much news IS the issue. It should simply be that she didn't get paid and is barred from being hired in the future. NOT because she's black, but because she was hired to do a prescribed job and failed to do so. I don't care if she sang "jimmy cracked corn" honestly. She was hired to sing the National Anthem and did not do her job. She shouldn't be hired in the future because she has shown she is not trustworthy to complete a simple task. You don't hire the wedding band, that turns your reception in to a MegaDeath concert, twice right?
