The Christian flag, Boston City HallCraig F. Walker

BOSTON, Massachusetts (LifeSiteNews) – Activists raised a Christian flag over Boston City Hall on Wednesday, thanks to a Supreme Court ruling in May that affirmed their right to do so.

A unanimous Court first ruled in May in Shurtleff v. Boston, that the city violated the rights of Christian activists when it denied them permission to fly a Christian flag, despite allowing other groups to raise banners in support of different beliefs and countries.

The battle over the flag went back to 2017, Hal Shurtleff, the founder of Camp Constitution, said at the flag raising event, August 3. “I do want to give the glory to God,” Shurtleff said, while thanking others who had supported him in his fight with the city.

“We have a great Constitution, and we have a wonderful First Amendment. But just like when it comes to muscles, it you don’t use it, you get weak,” Shurtleff said. “When I got the rejection email from the city, and it said separation for church and state, I knew we had a case.”

“God’s hand was in this from the beginning,” said Shurtleff as the flag was raised above the Boston square.

There are countless reasons to conclude modern sex-education is less about critical thinking and more about indoctrinating and sexualizing children at as young an age as possible.

Consider these 3 questions: 

  • Why are politicians around the world pushing radical transgender theories on children as young as 5? 
  • Why is the World Health Organization calling for 4 year-olds to be taught how to masturbate?
  • Why are children in schools being shown graphic images of sex and told anything goes so long as consent is established, if not to encourage our sons and daughters to become sexually active? 

A sane society would try to shield impressionable children from becoming sexualized, and encourage them not to watch pornography, take puberty blockers or mutilate their genitalia, but our schools increasingly promote these behaviors.

In reality, the media, most politicians, and many education chiefs are obliterating a parent's ability to protect their child's innocence and identity. 

We must realize: these elites want children to have THEIR values, not YOURS. SIGN THE PLEDGE!

The results of this explicit, inappropriate sex-saturated culture and education have been startling: there have never been more children claiming to be transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual, nor have we ever seen such high levels of sexual assaults by minors.

Countless politicians, media personalities and education chiefs are too busy promoting woke trends to realize that sexualizing minors amounts to grooming, and has devastating consequences in many cases.

Children whose inhibitions are broken down risk addiction to pornography, teenage pregnancy, STDs, gender dysphoria, online shaming, and a whole host of other negative outcomes. 

Parents, not the government, must be in control of what their child is taught about sex.

Just listen to the type of materials public schools in the U.S. are promoting: 

That's why we are asking you to sign the Parents' Pledge that you will pull your children out of sex-education classes if your school chooses to sexualize your child.

The Parents' Pledge is our best chance of winning back our children's schools before they're entirely lost to radical sex-obsessed teachers' unions who are foisting these curricula on teachers.

Do you really want other adults deciding what your child is exposed to? Of course not.

Please share this brand new grassroots Parents' Pledge with like-minded parents and join a growing movement of mothers and fathers who are wise to the threat of their child being led into sexual activity.

Since 2005, there were 284 different applications approved to raise different flags, according to Liberty Counsel. The city even allowed a flag for the Communist People’s Republic of China to fly.

“The only reason why Camp Constitution’s request to fly this flag was denied was not because of the flag itself. It was Hal Shurtleff’s view of that flag,” Liberty Counsel Chairman Mat Staver stated in a news release about the event. Liberty Counsel represented Shurtleff and Camp Constitution.

“It was because of one word in the application—the word ‘Christian’ that preceded the word ‘flag.’ He was told by the city official that if he changed the name of the flag to a nonreligious name on the application, that flag could have flown in 2017—if Hal would have lied and called it the Camp Constitution flag. This is not the Camp Constitution flag. It is the Christian flag,” Staver wrote in the news release.
