Regarding the Oct. 5 sports article “Marching band protest gets ECU game off radio station”: As an Episcopal priest I often “take a knee” before the cross and the altar. It’s difficult for me to understand why many people are outraged at the gesture by members of the ECU band during the national anthem.
When I “take a knee” I hope for guidance to improve my life, my faith and my church. Does standing with a puffed-up chest imply that as a nation we’re better than everyone else, that we need no improvement, that we’re already perfect and are not seeking a “more perfect union”?
