During the Olympics when I saw the flag carried by Ethiopian athletes, I knew the flag was "wrong". Thank you for reminding me why.

Gotta love foreigners trying to tell Ethiopians what is right and wrong. Forget trying to understand the meaning behind the star on the flag, lets just sit behind our computer and judge everyone else.

As far as I know, the star symbolises the diversity and unity. I have read that the old flag remains popular with followers of Haile Selassie, which might explain why Gebre posted the image.
Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.

You are correct, he is a follower of Haile Selassie. He views the emperor as infallible.

Christ appearing in the Old Testament:
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. -The Lord Jesus

The Saviour is made of elements which are distinct from one another yet He is not two Persons. God forbid! For both natures are one by the combination. -St. Gregory Nazianzen

Fun with thick wooden sticks?

You can use them for "sword" duels. Or smack others on heads or backs without any reason.

Yep.  The metric system was invented because the Eurotards were having too much trouble remembering anything that could not be counted on their fingers.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

No offence taken.

These are cardboard plans/templats/models for stained glass windows purposed for an another one church. They were hung up so that they are not molding somewhere in a basement. They are not windows.
