The city of Boston, Mass. Is facing a federal lawsuit for religious discrimination on banning the Christian flag back in 2017 and again in 2018, while accepting 284 others.
Hal Shurtleff, the director, and co-founder of Camp Constitution proposed the city to fly the Christian flag (an inter-denominational symbol) as part of Constitution Day for an event. Sadly the town banned its appearance, saying no non-secular flags allowed.
The city would have compromised if Shurtleff called it the Camp Constitution flag instead of the Christian flag. The group was planning a celebration event with pastors to encourage racial reconciliation, freedom in the United States, and the connection between Christianity and the United States. The event was supposed to end with a presentation of the Christian flag. However, considering the city’s rejection, it was canceled.
Matthew Staver, founder, and chairman of Liberty Counsel, a religious freedom law firm- who is representing Shurtleff stated-
“There’s no question that it is an unconstitutional act and originally said it was a violation of the First Amendment, which I find ironic.” Boston, Mass is under major violation of both the First Amendment and the Establishment Clause. To censor religious viewpoints, whereas secular viewpoints are permitted is unbelievable. – states Staver
One example, the city allowed the Turkish flag an (Islamic star and crescent) to be raised on city hall flagpoles 13 times since 2005, according to the suit. The city has approved dozens of other countries to fly their flags including other religions in the past.
Previously, A federal court ruled against Shurtleff. Luckily the new lawsuit brings to the light new “key facts” that Liberty Counsel believes will compel a result in Camp Constitution’s favor.
