Atheism and Communism are tied at the hip. I don't know of even one atheist that believes in capitalism, would salute the American flag, or even stand during the national anthem.
"As an atheist capitalist I say bull5h17 to that."

That translation was not TRUE to what the man actually was saying. The way the translations were worded shows that the interpreter had a bias against that culture / religion. Remember guys, we used to do the very same thing as little as a 100 years ago. These people are much poorer TODAY than we were 100 years ago. They are generally illiterate or at best educated by religious community centers that teach them this manner is the CORRECT manner of living. I am not condoning this activity by any means, I am just trying to even the playing field before accusations are blindly put forth.

"As a non-American, I salute the American flag at every opportunity. I have a very deep respect for Americans, as something of a historian of WWII in Europe. THOSE were Americans."
I remember you once saying that you hate nationalism. Why do you salute our flag then?
I'm not trying to start an argument, but more hoping to get a new perspective.
