I could be making a mistake about this subject. There was tons of posts over the Hardee flag and ANV flags a few months ago. Did Porcher state that the southern cross he designed had no religious meaning? But how could that be when he designed a St. George cross as his first design, but was complained about by Jews. Or did he not desing a St. George first and designed the southern X shaped cross ( not st. Andrews cross) in response to complaints. To me the southern cross is a symbol of the ethnic southern military in the wbts and the ethnic south today. The religious aspect of the cross and other southern crosses comes as a second thought. Today I sometimes view the southern cross as a symbol of a southern christian people trying to defy the attacks on christianity and southern values, and also trying to defy the immoral glorification of many aspects of modern american culture. I also view it as a christian symbol of the southern people in defiance of marxist America's rejection of christianity and worship of corrupt man as a solution to our nation's problems.I realize that the south had a lot of people( especially young people) who became worse after the 1980s just like the rest of the nation. I got away from my original question and topic. Sorry LOl!!
