First Baptist Church, Beebe, Arkansas. Note that the U.S. flag is incorrectly flown versus the Christian flag (the white flag with a blue field). Correct positioning of the U.S. flag is always on its own right (the viewer's left). Churches that incorrectly fly flags in this way are making a clear statement of Christian supremacism, through the improper physical placement of Christian and national symbols.
Flags, and how they are placed relative to each other, were a recurring theme during this roadtrip.
