Does that include the right to burn one's own official US flag?)

Well, there's no such thing as an "official" US flag, but yes, you do have the right to burn one.

Dan, didn't Jesus say, I am the way..no man sees the Father except through me?

I'm not Dan but I'll give my belief: Yes, he did say that. Well, close. No man comes to the Father but by me. But I also believe you don't need to know the name of the bridge to cross it, and many will say "Lord, when did we do good to you?" and be told it was because of how they treated the needy that they are welcome into the Kingdom.

People can proof-text back and forth. The Bible, taken literally and piecewise, contradicts itself all over the place. Overall I think it shows a movement from the self-justifying scratchings of a little Middle-East nomadic society concerning its tribal god, to a universal message of love and acceptance by a universal creator God.
