Lawsuit: City of Boston Prohibits Raising a Christian Flag While Flying 284 Other Flags

The war on Christianity continues from liberal government bureaucrats.

A new federal lawsuit alleges that the city of Boston is engaging in an unconstitutional infringement on religious liberty by banning a flag with a Christian cross emblem from being flown at City Hall while allowing nearly 300 other flags to be flown from the same location.

Liberty Counsel filed a lawsuit on Monday on behalf of Hal Shurtleff and his Camp Constitution organization. Shurtleff wanted to fly a flag with the Christian cross prominently displayed to commemorate Constitution Day in 2017 and 2018 while hosting an event celebrating contributions by Christians to the cause of liberty, but was ultimately denied the request.

Shurtleff claims his basic civil rights are being violated by the refusal of his request. The lawsuit builds a strong case that unfair standards are being applied that are discriminatory against Christians.

The lawsuit claims that the city allowed the Turkish flag featuring the Islamic star and crescent to be raised at city hall at least 13 times between 2005 and 2019. Over the same time period, the town raised Chinese, Cuban and Vatican flags as well.

They totaled 284 different flags that have been allowed to be flown over that same time period, not even including the flags celebrating the explicitly anti-Christian LGBT agenda. No requests were ever denied until Shurtleff proposed the Christian flag to be flown, showing the town’s likely bias against believers in Christ.

“Yet, despite all of these many flag raisings containing religious symbols and imagery, and the City’s allowing the official flag of the Catholic Church, Camp Constitution’s proposed flag raising was denied because it was ‘religious,’” the suit says.

““There can be no dispute that the City’s denial impermissibly discriminated between religion and non-religion, and discriminated between religious sects. Both violate the Establishment Clause,” the suit adds.

Liberty Counsel claims that the city is violating the rights of Shurtleff that are enshrined in the 1st and 14th Amendments of the Constitution by refusing to fly the Christian flag.

“Censoring religious viewpoints in a public forum where secular viewpoints are permitted violates the First Amendment,” Liberty Counsel Chairman Mat Staver said.

“Boston city officials may not ban the Christian flag as part of a privately-sponsored event when they allow any other flag by numerous private organizations. It’s time for the court to stop the city’s unconstitutional censorship,” he added.

A federal appeals court had previously upheld the ban on flying the Christian flag last month. US District Court Judge Denise Casper, who was appointed to the bench by President Barack Obama, had previously tossed an injunction filed by Shurtleff with the incomprehensible rationale that his request somehow infringed on “government speech.”

Aided by Liberty Counsel, Shurtleff will have another day in court to defend his rights. If the lawsuit is successful, that victory can help stem the tide of institutionalized discrimination against the Christian faith that is picking up in the U.S. and across the West.

SATURDAY 9/26: Franklin Graham’s ‘Prayer March’ in Washington D.C. Aims to Revive Christianity to Unite Americans

The truth of Christ is desperately needed in the hearts of Americans.

Renowned pastor Franklin Graham is set to hold his Prayer March 2020 on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 12pm to 2pm at the Lincoln Memorial during a time in which national unity is desperately needed.

“America is in trouble. Our communities are hurting, our people are divided, and there’s fear and uncertainty all around us. Let’s join together and do the most important thing: pray!” Graham announced on the group’s website.

The 1.8-mile march will begin at the Lincoln Memorial then continue through the World War II Memorial. The Christians will then make their way to the Washington Monument over to the National Museum of American History & Culture and then to the National Archives before ending at the U.S. Capitol.

“Prayer is our most important weapon. It allows us to go directly to the King of Kings, directly to stand in front of the throne of grace, and make our petitions directly to the throne of God,” Graham said in a video promoting the march.

Because of the marxist Black Lives Matter terror movement and the COVID-19 scamdemic, religious freedom in America is under attack like never before.

Big League Politics has reported on how churches are getting fined for merely holding in-person services, which is heinously unconstitutional and makes a mockery of the 1st Amendment:

Over the past week, North Valley Baptist Church in Santa Clara, California has amassed $15,000 in fines for holding church gatherings.

Christianity Daily noted that the church’s move violated the county’s health order and “It was the largest corona virus related fines levied in Santa Clara County.”

On August 23, 2020, the county slapped the church with two $5,000 fines for holding services indoor during the morning and evening. The church was fined again $5,000 for conducting another service in-person.

On the church’s door, there was a cease-and-desist letter posted, which explained that “North Valley Baptist was in violation of the health order for holding indoor services, failing to ensure mask-wearing and social distancing indoors, singing during services and failing to submit a social distancing protocol.”

The $5000 fine in question is the highest possible financial penalty for businesses that violate the Wuhan virus health order that Santa Clara county implemented earlier in August. Counsel James Williams remarked that “the county has avoided issuing fines in favor of working with businesses to bring them into compliance.”

Local governments across the nation are exploiting the Wuhan virus pandemic to implement policies that undermine the right to peaceful gatherings and certain forms of social activity that individuals on the right or organizations that uphold traditional values tend to participate in.

The founders of Black Lives Matter have been explicit about their marxist intentions. They hope to not just inflict racial dominance over white people, but also to destroy the capitalist system and impose a tyranny on America that resulted in the gruesome murders of tens of millions of Christians worldwide.

Only the blood of Christ can re-purify the American nation, which has drifted into secularism and may experience damnation as a result. The Prayer March could be the stop of America’s slide into Sodom and Gomorrah.
