Displaying American Flag "Offensive", Burning it or Spitting on it "Not Offensive"

Mansfield TX- CBS- A woman was asked to take down an American flag she had brought to her office celebrating Memorial Day because it was "offensive".

When Debbie McLucas came to work Friday, her boss told her another supervisor had found her flag offensive. "I was just totally speechless. I was like, 'You're kidding me,'" McLucas said.

McLucas' husband and sons are former military men. Her daughter is currently serving in Iraq as a combat medic.

Stifling a cry, McLucas said, "I just wonder if all those young men and women over there are really doing this for nothing."

Apparently in America today it's perfectly fine to throw it on the ground, burn it, desecrate it or spit on the American flag but proudly displaying it is "offensive".

"After a thorough roasting in the blogosphere, Kindred officials decided to let hospital supervisor Debbie McLucas put an American flag back on her office wall."

"We have invited the employee (McLucas) to put the flag back up,"
