Trump continued, “I asked Paula [White] to invite some of her friends here that she believes are in contact with God, so that you guys can pray for me that God gives me the wisdom to make the right decision as to whether I run [for President] or not.

Freedom of speech and the old Flag

Can SA Rugby ban the old South African flag at rugby games? In this morning’s Die Burger I argue that they can.

Should SA Rugby ban the old flag? I would say yes, they should because their image is at stake and waiving the flag at a rugby game somehow implicates all of us who watch the game in a yearning for apartheid.

Should the old flag be banned by Parliament? I would say absolutely NO, because that would suppress unpopular political speech, which can only be bad for democracy.
