One Christian Flag Is Lowered And One Hundred Took Its Place

Once again, we see a small town bullied by the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). The atheist activist group has made a habit of targeting small, poor communities and their religious (Christian) symbols. And they have struck again in a small town in Mississippi.

The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent a letter on Jan. 20 to Rienzi Mayor Walter Williams to assert that the flag, which had been flown in Veterans Memorial Park, was unconstitutional. It said that it had been contacted by a local resident—who was not named—to advise them of the flag’s presence.

And facing legal extortion and financial threat, the town was left with little option but to comply with the letter.

FFRF urged Williams to utilize a completely secular display instead, and noted that it can be “quite costly” to ignore their request as another city settled with FFRF in 2015 for $500,000.

But the citizens of Rienzi did not want to put up with these bully tactics. They were determined to make their displeasure with this known. They were not going to take this lying down.

On Saturday, more than 100 residents from the small town of 300 held a rally in support of the flag, some themselves bearing the emblem.

“We’re not gonna let other people, or a foundation, or anybody else up in Wisconsin tell us that we can’t fly our flag!” organizer Kevin Nelms proclaimed to those gathered.

“My whole point behind this [is], you’re gonna take one down, we’re gonna put a hundred back up,” he added to reporters. Supporters ran another Christian flag up the flagpole during the event.

Nelms and his group rode from the VFW on their motorcycles to Veterans Memorial Park, flying the flag as they went.

This should be the reaction of all good Christians when their rights are turned against them as is the habit of these atheists.  FFRF do not want freedom, but conformity.
