A Civilian City and “Military Religious Flags”
The North Carolina city of King has been in the news over the past few months over its decision to remove a Christian flag from a veteran’s memorial — after a threat of financial ruin from the ACLU. Local citizens subsequently raised their own Christian flag, and then stood guard over it 24/7.
King officials, with pro bono assistance from the Alliance Defense Fund, recently voted to reinstate the memorial…sort of:
The King City Council approved a policy Monday night that eventually would allow a Christian flag to fly again at a memorial at the city’s Central Park as a part of a limited public display of religious flags recognized by the U.S. military.
