    Why this bothers anyone (the flags flying at whatever height) is beyond me. It's people LOOKING for a reason to get upset...and lawyers looking for money.

    Just like the Pledge of Allegience----any toe hold to attack religion.

    Yep, I knew this was coming too. I'm not Roman Catholic and it wouldn't bother me if the flags were flown at half-staff all across the country. That's one of the things I liked about John Paul II, he appealed to more than just Roman Catholics. Flying the flag at half-staff doesn't make it look like everyone is Roman Catholic, it just makes it look like they are honoring someone that deserves it.

    The left will say that the govt shouldn't be showing any favoritism as the article has said already. I think the ACLU has checked out thier law books on this one and found it too hot to handle. It will just sit back and let other groups fight this battle for em.
