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

The war on Christianity continues from liberal government bureaucrats.

Published

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.

Trump Administration Posits That Transgender ‘Girls’ are Male, Triggering LGBT Advocates

The Trump administration is striking back against LGBT insanity.

Published

on

The Trump administration, led by Attorney General William Barr, is pushing back against LGBT insanity that is causing young girls to lose scholarship opportunities by competing against biological males in school sporting events.

The Department of Justice issued a legal document on Tuesday in Hartford, Conn. The document pertains to a case filed by the pro-Christian legal organization Alliance Defending Freedom, who are representing high school girls on the receiving end of alleged discrimination by school officials allowing birth men to participate in their sporting events.

The feds allege that the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) is violating Title IX in how the agency interprets gender identity.

“Under CIAC’s interpretation of Title IX, however, schools may not account for the real physiological differences between men and women. Instead, schools must have certain biological males — namely, those who publicly identify as female — compete against biological females,” Barr and his team wrote about the case.

“In so doing, CIAC deprives those women of the single-sex athletic competitions that are one of the marquee accomplishments of Title IX,” they added.

High school seniors Selina Soule of Glastonbury, Conn., and Chelsea Mitchell of Canton, Conn. filed the lawsuit along with co-plaintiff Alanna Smith, a sophomore at Danbury High School, last year in order to push back against transgender insanity.

“What Plaintiffs alleged — and what is true — is that due to physiological differences, female athletes cannot beat ‘comparably talented and trained’ males,” ADF attorney Christiana Holcomb said about the case.

Far-left special interest groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) are up in arms about the Trump administration’s embrace of common sense and rejection of LGBT dogma. ACLU attorney Chase Strangio made a strange allusion to coronavirus while whining about the administration’s behavior in a Twitter post.

“This is what the Attorney General is prioritizing while 12 people died last night from COVID-19 related complications at the hospital near my house. When we let the gov’t police our bodies like this, they will always leave “undesirable” bodies to die,” Strangio worte.

Strangio is representing the boys who claim they are girls and is adamant about their “right” to deprive biological women of their ability to receive scholarships opportunities in sports.

“Our clients are two high school seniors who are just trying to enjoy their final track season of high school and who now have to contend with the federal government arguing against their right to equal educational opportunities,” Strangio said to the AP.

“History will look back on these anti-trans attacks with deep regret and shame. In the meantime we will continue to fight for the rights of all girls to participate in the sports they love,” he added.

Big League Politics will continue to cover this case as it makes its way through the courts as well as other perverse and abusive actions related to the satanic LGBT agenda.
