Maybe elected officials in Mississippi thought that the far left would leave them alone after they agreed to remove the Confederate emblem from their state flag. However, as the state gets ready to unveil a new flag, the opposite has happened.
House Bill 1796, passed last month, requires that the state flag "not include the design of the Confederate battle flag" but says it must include "In God We Trust."
The fact that Mississippi would want to include that phrase on its state flag should not come as a surprise. After all, polling has shown that the Magnolia State is the most religious in the nation. It's only natural that the state's flag would reflect the values of its residents. MORE
