Recently Donald Trump tweeted the following:

"Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag - if they do, there must be consequences - perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!"

Thoughts? I stand by freedom of speech and expression and, even if flag-burning is a rather crude method of criticizing the government, it still is a form of expression and should be protected by law in my opinion. However, I would be curious to hear someone's reasons for wanting to criminalize burning a flag.

I mean, heck, in my opinion the Lord's name is sacred, but a flag isn't. If blasphemy is protected by law - as I believe it should be in a secular democracy - than so should flag burning.
