Should American flag be displayed first?

I pass by the intersection of West Lane and Armstrong most every day.

I have noticed the new Sikh church has installed a very tall flag pole, 50-60 feet. They have put a yellow flag; I assume it is their Sikh religion flag.

I'm not sure if there are any rules about putting an American flag above all other flags. I think they should show they are American citizens first and Sikhs second. I hope others have noticed.

    I think people make a big fuss out of nothing - America is not a religion, a religion is above a country. If these guys had their Indian flag higher than the US flag then I think we should all object.
    If a Jewish synagogue had their flag higher than the American flag, I do not think anybody would object.
    One should respect all religions no matter if its Sikhism or Christianity and their must be distinction between religion and state.
