John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

North Carolina Company Fights Fines And Suit Over Flying Enormous American Flag |

A North Carolina company is fighting fines and a lawsuit reportedly from the city over flying a huge American flag.

Camping World flies a 40-by-80-foot flag outside of its Gander RV location in Statesville, North Carolina, as a way to honor military members and veterans. The city, however, believes Camping World is violating codes that say a flag cannot be more than 25-by-40 feet if it is flown 100 feet from a highway reported Monday.

 

Camping World, an outdoor supply and RV company, said it faced a $50 per day fine since Oct. 15, 2018.

“I don’t care if it goes to $500 a day,” Marcus Lemonis, CEO and chairman of Camping World and Gander RV, said according to WSOC. “It’s not coming down.”

A Statesville spokesperson said the city began fining the company after asking it to take down the flag several times, WSOC reported. City officials failed 3-5 to vote in an ordinance that would allow Camping World to fly a flag of its size.

More than 70,000 people signed Camping World’s Change.org petition in support of flying the flag.

North Carolina officials said in 2015 Camping World could not fly flag due to city ordinance, WSOC reported.

Camping World and Statesville did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

The city ordinance allows them to fly a flag as large as a 2 bedroom house, but Camping World claims that the VETERANS need a flag as large as a McMansion ... Really?

This would have nothing to do with boosting the visibility of an Auto Dealership that sells RVs with the equivalent of the MOTHER OF ALL BILLBOARDS that happens to be a cloth American Flag, would it?
