This is from our attorney Mat Staver:Over the 12 years before Constitution Day 2017, the City of Boston approved 284 applications by private groups to temporarily raise a flag on the city’s flagpole during their event. But application number 285 was denied solely because Camp Constitution’s application included one word—the word “Christian.”
Boston’s website states it wants to “create an environment in the city where everyone feels included, and is treated with respect.”
But when Boston says “everyone,” it means everyone BUT Christians.
Camp Constitution applied to hold an event to celebrate Christian contributions to Boston and Massachusetts. During the one-hour program, Camp Constitution applied to raise the “Christian flag” on the city’s “public forum” flagpole, which its website said is open to “all applicants.”
But the City of Boston DENIED Camp Constitution’s application SOLELY because it included the word “Christian.”
We lost this case twice in the lower district court, then lost twice at the court of appeals. But the Supreme Court has taken up the case and will issue a ruling that will impact the entire country!
