You are right on. God forgive the Christian pastors of this land for being so out of touch with the attacks on our country and so impotent to affect our culture. This is our fault. The light has gone dim. The salt has lost its savor. Lord, awaken your people and save us before it is too late.

You all hate spooky Muslims so much it's laughable. Making up all kinds of fake situations 😱😂 you Christians think everyone's out there to get you

Christianity: In Christianity, the 8-pointed star represents rebirth or resurrection. It is sometimes called the Star of Redemption or the Star of Bethlehem, and is associated with the birth of Jesus Christ.

You paint a brood swath when you refer to Christians. A little narrow minded about those who believe in Christianity?

The Star of Bethlehem reminds us that the gospel isn’t just for the religious, for the neat and tidy. It’s for not only the poor shepherds of society but also the astrologers of this world, those foreign to us.

The Father announced His Son’s birth to the most unlikely candidates, showing His love for all of humanity, His desire for all to know Him.

The gospel is for everyone, and we have the honor, the joy, and the sacred duty to share it.

BTW The Star of Redemption has six points.

The Minnesota State Flag design uses L'Etoile du Nord.

Absolute crock of shit. The five point star is "American"? There are more Muslim nations with five point stars on their flags than eight point. But that doesn't fit the narrative does it?

The Minnesota State Flag design uses L'Etoile du Nord which is used throughout the Minnesota State Capitol building. I agree that star designs are universal. A really good five point star is on the ceiling of the Pyramid of Unis dating from the 24th Century BC!

Let's see....we are waving Ukraining flags in Congress, we are importing Chinese military men, we are now adding Islamist symbols to our flags and what else? Have we forgotten who we are--or did their ancestors not do a very good job of relaying the hardships and battles won on their behalf, enabling all of us to have good lives in a free country. With these acts we are stepping away from the Republic that our forefathers designed

Anne, the Minnesota State Flag uses L'Etoile du Nord. Minnesotan's are not stepping away from the Constitution, but simply reaffirming the state's history and land.

Crescent and Star: The faith of Islam is symbolized by the Crescent and Star. The Crescent is the early phase of the moon and represents progress. The star signifies illumination with the light of knowledge.

This is dumb. Almost nobody associates an 8-pointed star with Islam, so the sinister symbolism you suggest isn’t there. Next you’ll tell us that octagonal stop signs are part of this dastardly conspiracy.

Right? Cresent and star is widely used. These people are nuts. Prob the same people who think oreos are evil too

One reason I'm not too bothered by the Star itself is that St. Constantine The Great created the star for the city of Constantinople. It is a Christian symbol of a Christian nation even though the Muslims appropriated it.

Also fortunately, Utah went with a five point star but it was a close call. Great article otherwise.

This is because Americans have been “willfully ignorant”, afraid to speak out against what they see and hear and know is objectively wrong if not un American

Yeah it's ignorant to not know a freaking shape can have various meanings and you're all making up scenarios to feel persecuted 😂

The description for the Pocatello, ID flag is, "The compass rose is a directional emblem symbolizing Pocatello’s central role as a transportation and trade hub for rail, road, and air. In addition to its ties to transportation, the rose also points to our past, present, and future." Now, whether that is gaslighting the people, I don't know. They're is a long list of names at the end of the article of flag designers...do any of them sound familiar? I come from that area so hope not that far gone, but, it's a college town ...

I live in WA and the proposed flag, and so many pictured in the article all seem so juvenile and simplistic, no majesty to them...

Do nothing, Mark. It's not islalmic.

Wait until you find out how many muslim majority nations have five point stars on their flags.

Syria, Pakistan, Libya, Tunisia, Turkey, Somalia- all have the same five point star as the good ol' US of A. Is that an "islamic star" now too or does that not fit the narrative?

The Muslim women like being here because their husbands are restricted from beating or killing them here. But, what they don't realize is that they will not be able to continue in freedom here. US will remove kids and women if abuse is detected. They are not obeying Sharia here-but US laws. If I understand correctly the Islamic women are more hateful and aggressive than the men once in the US

I'm very concerned about this, but I am not sure that the Winston Salem one applies here. It is based on the Moravian Star, which you will see hanging from every porch in the city at Christmas. It is based on the Star of Bethlehem and is long linked with the Moravian Church, which was a breakaway Protestant denomination a century before the Reformation. Winston Salem has the 2nd highest concentration of this denomination in the United States and historically was founded by Moravians, so that one might not be a valid concern.

Thank you for educating the uninformed about the Moravian star.

The Minnesota star is L'Etoile du Nord and has been since the state was formed and the star was incorporated in the design of the capital building.

Totally irrelevant to Kent or Toledo, Ohio, or all the other places where Islamists are sneaking in their symbols. We love the Moravians of Zoar, Ohio and Bethlehem Pennsylvania, and the Century-long Prayer Meeting of Moravian history, BUT "this is not that" eight-points!

Expand full comment

I can't tell from the message whether you are agreeing or attacking me. Even the article specifically says that it is a Moravian star. If you visit Winston Salem, you see Moravian symbols everywhere and a good many Moravian churches as well was 2 pre-colonial Moravian settlements: Old Salem and historic Bethabra.

The Minnesota eight point star was incorporated into the Minnesota State Capitol building when it was constructed in the late 1800s. It represents L'Etoile du Nord, the State Motto referring to it being the northernmost of the 48 states. Ascribing islamic references is incorrect, Ms Toboroff. The design is Minnesotan. <p><a href="https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rotunda_floor_of_the_Minnesota_State_Capitol_showing_8-pointed_star.jpg#/media/File:Rotunda_floor_of_the_Minnesota_State_Capitol_showing_8-pointed_star.jpg"><img src="https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e2/Rotunda_floor_of_the_Minnesota_State_Capitol_showing_8-pointed_star.jpg" alt="Rotunda floor of the Minnesota State Capitol showing 8-pointed star.jpg" height="1248" width="1872"></a><br>By Zack Mensinger - <a rel="nofollow" class="external free" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/zack_mensinger/32196106516/">https://www.flickr.com/photos/zack_mensinger/32196106516/</a>, <a href="https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0" title="Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0">CC BY-SA 2.0</a>, <a href="https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=101248784">Link</a></p>
