The Supreme Court unanimously ruled Monday that Boston violated the Constitution when it refused to fly an explicitly Christian flag outside city hall.
The court ruled that since the city government had allowed other citizens to use the flagpole to express a variety of messages, its rejection of the cross-bearing flag violated the free-speech rights of the religious group that proposed it.
“Boston’s flag-raising program does not express government speech,” Justice Stephen Breyer wrote in the opinion of the court, which reversed a lower court’s judgment.
Joe Biden sided with Boston against the Christian group.
"Devout Catholic" Joe Biden sided with Boston, saying it could prohibit flags from being flown in the community program just because they were Christian.
The Supreme Court UNANIMOUSLY rejected that bigoted argument.
