Apparently the State of Misery still has a "flag desecration" law on the books, and Missouri's AG for lack of anything better to do is trying to get the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold the law's constitutionality. Even though the Supreme Court made very clear decades ago that such laws run afoul of the First Amendment.
Also, you can't desecrate what is not sacred, and pieces of cloth bearing the symbols of the state are not sacred. Unless you want to say that the state is holy and its government a church. But then the doctrine of the Separation of Church and State would be entirely absurd.
Hey, let's all give Chris Koster more work to do. Let's get a group of ten or so people and go stand in front of the Arch and blow our noses as obstreperously as we can into United States Flag Handkerchiefs. Let's defile the flag with our snot.
Chris Koster, you can go fuck yourself.
