Lawmaker wants Tennesseans to honor state flag with salute
State Representative Tom DuBois (R-Columbia) wants a four-line rhyme professing pride and love for the Tennessee flag to be recited by the legislature for now, and maybe someday by schoolchildren pledging allegiance to the U.S. flag.
The text of the salute, as set out in House Bill 2874, is:
"Three white stars on a field of blue
God keep them strong and ever true
It is with pride and love that we
Salute the Flag of Tennessee."
Of course, the ACLU is not happy about it.
