Not ONLY Would This Jack Up Their Flag

what would happen to “The Sword in the Stone”? (Which is NOT Excaliber, so don’t even get me started.)

His dragon-slaying heroics have kept his legend alive through the centuries.
But the Church of England is considering rejecting England’s patron saint St George on the grounds that his image is too warlike and may offend Muslims.
Clergy have started a campaign to replace George with St Alban, a Christian martyr in Roman Britain.

Who needs a Jihad when these PC weenies just up and change their history/tradition/sacred symbols to suit Muslim sensibilities on their own?
A Swill Salute to The Gateway Pundit for this horrifying development.
UPDATE: One more good reason to willingly roll over for the IslamoFascists?

Radical Islamic militia fighters in Somalia shot and killed two people who were watching a banned World Cup soccer broadcast, a radio station reported Wednesday.
The hard-line Muslim fighters, who have banned watching television, opened fire after a crowd of teenagers defied their orders to leave a hall where a businessman was showing Tuesday’s Germany-Italy match on satellite television, according to Shabelle Radio, an independent local station. It said the businessman and a teenage girl were killed.

No more TV to rot your brain.

    It’s really sad watching (formerly)Great Britain circle the drain.

    St. Alban’s cross is…yellow. How appropriate.
    St. Alban’s is also where Algore went to school.

    No comment on the replacement of a “dragon-slayer” by someone whose entire claim to fame is, apparently, being a victim.

  4. Nightfly says:

    Excellent point, Ken. In fact, I have quite a comment that I saved for the ping. Warning – it is long and quotes from a few sources.

    I’ll disobey and get you started. If the sword in the stone isn’t Excalibur, what is it?

  6. Dave J says:

    This is patently ridiculous. It is also one more argument for the disestablishment of the Church of England.
    Of course, if the CoE idiotically changed who England’s patron saint was, that would not by itself change what England’s flag is: the Cross of St. George is a state symbol, and while no statute ever made it such (because its use as one is roughly contemporary with Parliament regularly sitting as an instiution in the 13th century), the other later statutes and proclamations creating the Union Flag of 1707 and the current Union Flag of 1801 (better known as the Union Jack) recognized it as one retrospectively. Therefore, I would contend that to change the English national flag would require an Act of Parliament, and given the increased popularity of the St. George’s Cross, there’s no way that’d ever happen.

    Well, Excalibur got lobbed by the watery tart to Arthur, while the Sword-in-the-Stone was the pen sitting on T. H. White’s desk.

    Strange women lying in ponds is no basis for a form of government.
