Back in September of 2017, Camp Constitution was denied a permit by the City of Boston to fly the Christian flag on a public access flagpole where flags of Communist China, Cuba, and the Rainbow flag among others are allowed to fly. Camp Constitution contacted Liberty Counsel, and within a day, the good folks at Liberty Counsel agreed to take the case. Since then, there has been several courtroom appearances, and international media coverage, but over the past few days, the story has gone viral. Dozens of media outlets including World Net Daily, Fox News, Fox TV, Breitbart, The Blaze, the Daily Caller, Lifesite News. Today, Hal Shurtleff, Director of Camp Constitution, appeared on the Jeff Kuhner Show, a popular Boston-area talk show host: https://www.iheart.com/podcast/658-the-kuhner-report-28754718/episode/camp-constitution-is-suing-boston-for-46968211/?cmp=web_share&pname=fb&campid=s&keyid=29008946&fbclid=IwAR1R2jI9KykAXdHr8M8EUolQZVj7I-GFrHT3eYz0WQVsVla9Pq_M5-6AnMk
Camp Constitution’s goal was to hold an event on Boston’s City Hall Plaza on or close to Constitution Day September 17 where it planned to have Rev. Steve Craft, Pastor William Levi, and Richard Howell give speeches on the need for racial reconciliation, the blessings of liberty, and Boston’s Christian heritage. The raising of the Christian flag would have concluded the ceremony. Hal Shurtleff, the staff at Camp Constitution, and the legal team at Liberty Counsel are optimistic that they will win the suit.
