    The mayor of Durham, North Carolina, praised a ten-year-old Cub Scout for taking a knee during the Pledge of Allegiance at a recent city council meeting.

    Cub Scout Pack 451 was asked to lead the Pledge of Allegiance during Monday’s city council meeting, but instead of standing in honor of the country, one of the scouts, Liam Holmes, decided to mimic former NFL player Colin Kaepernick, and take a knee.

    “What I did was took a knee against racial discrimination, which is basically when people are mean to other people of different colors,” the child told CBS Channel 17-TV.

    One day the military might take a knee when there are enough of these morons there is no use in dying for one.

    Once they started letting girls in the moral and ethical breakdown was bound to happen.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    I remember that taking a knee used to be a sign of respect and not protest.

    That was generally at an altar or doing prayer. On a football field, it indicates you don't need to run any more plays.
