Shriners: Don't dishonor Confederate Veterans by banning their flag!!
This petition made change with 1,730 supporters!
On 10th day of August, 2015 Jerry G. Gantt, Imperial Potentate of Shriners International issued Special Order #4 prohibiting any Shriner (in an official capacity) to display a Confederate flag in public or in private, AND prohibits any Shriner (in official capacity) to participate in ANY event where a Confederate flag is displayed.
This Special Order is a slap in the face to the 70,000,000 descendants of Confederate Veterans (also now considered by Federal law to be US Veterans) whose forbearers loved, served and were protected by the Southern Cross.
Tell the Imperial Potentate to rescind his order! Although the good works of the Shirners are appreciated, Potentate Gantt's action is disrespecting your family and that you are offended.
