NASHUA - Granite Staters Beth Scaer and Marc Vatter organized a raising of the Christian flag in front of Nashua's City Hall on Resurrection Sunday March 31.
Hal Shurtleff and The Rev. Steve Craft of Camp Constitution were invited to speak at the event.
Camp Constitution won a precedent setting 9-0 U.S. Supreme Court decision "Shurtleff v Boston" concerning the Christian flag, free speech, and religious liberty. Shurtleff urged viewers around the United States to do events like this in their towns and cities.
Scaer had experienced viewpoint discrimination a few years ago when after getting approval and trying to fly her "Save Women Sports" flag, Nashua's mayor caved into complaints by those who support biological men playing in women's sports, Jim Donchess ordered it removed.
In 2017, The City of Boston denied Shurtleff and Camp Constitution a permit to raise the Christian flag to celebrate Constitution Day and the City's rich Christian history. This was the first time the city denied a permit to any group. Prior to that, the city allowed groups and individuals permits to raise the flags of Communist China and Cuba, and the Rainbow and Transgender flags.
Camp Constitution sued the city. In May of 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in favor of Camp Constitution. Since then, cities and towns across the United State have eithered allowed Christians the same right to fly a flag as other groups or have changed their policies to only allow the U.S., state, and town or city flags.
Last Thursday, the Christian flag flew on Connecticut's Capitol Building, and on Saturday, the Christian flag flew on public property in Reading, Pa., attended by the city's mayor Eddie Moran.
The case did not only concern flags, however. According to the Liberty Counsel, the legal team that defended Camp Constitution in "Shurtleff v Boston" overturned what was known as the Lemon Test based on the U.S. Supreme Court's 1971 "Lemon v Kurtzman" case that was used to restrict and silence religious expression in the public arena.
