A 59 year-old Boston man is challenging the city’s refusal to fly a Christian flag over city hall to recognize Christianity’s historical contributions to both Boston and the state of Massachusetts, the Boston Globe reports.
Camp Constitution is a charitable trust dedicated to promoting “understanding of our Judeo-Christian moral heritage, our American heritage of courage and ingenuity, including the genius of our United States Constitution, and the application of free enterprise” through a variety of discussions, activities, and events.
Last year its director, Harold Shurtleff, wanted to fly a Christian flag with a red cross on a blue background, with white on three sides, at the city hall to commemorate “the civic and social contributions of the Christian community to the City, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, religious tolerance, the Rule of Law, and the US Constitution.”
But the city denied him a permit on the grounds that it “maintains a policy and practice of respectfully refraining from flying non-secular flags on City Hall flagpoles,” and said it would consider a request to fly a non-religious flag instead.
