YES it does say something about flying a Christian flag on government property. Read the establishment clause to the first amendment. It states that Congress (aka the government) cannot establish a religion..........
This is about the weakest load of fertilizer I have seen yet. "Not A religious battle" Very well then if its not about religion. Since it was neither a religious organization nor the city government that place the flag on the monument you may be correct. the it is not a religious issue at all, it is purely freedom of speech. Please quit mutilating the first amendment
It reads
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Please stop trying to mislead

..........Do you know that ALL the veterans on the monument want the flag flown there? NO, not all of them do. No one should be subjected to seeing this flag on government owned property. This is a matter of separation of church and state ..........
“Separation of Church and State” is a catch phrase
Here is a request that has not adequately been answered!

I wish one of these great thinkers would provide a ratified US document that uses the words “Separation of Church and State”. Not a letter, an interpretation, or a ruling, but a ratified document. Then we can talk about what to uphold.

Without “prohibiting the free exercise of religion, or abridging the freedom of speech”, can a government consisting of “We the people” truly ‘separate’ from religious faiths? Was the first amendments intent to remove all religious influence from government (or in our case the public square) or about removing all government influence from religion i.e.‘Government controlled Religions’?

Next they will want to prohibit people of faith from seeking public office.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Yes Please the first six will do "CONGRESS shall make NO LAW RESPECTING.........." You seem to have skipped a few

When a govt endorses one religion, via symbol or statement, the have gone to far...thats what the constitution says...and they are NOT stopping you from worhsip..worship all you want, just not using land my tax money pays for.
Since i am not from there i have to ask...who was the dumb **** in charge who didnt see this coming? I mean don't you people in king have a town lawyer who should have warned you ahead of time. Or are the folks you elect just to bull headed to listen... You could have almost given the land to them at that time...but now you have a giant crap storm..and your residents are paying for it

I heard that the city of King had lost track of it's village idiot and I was quiet sure the name that came of across the dispatch was ROB. Soooo, I did a little checking around and sure enough it was Rob, his therapist told dispatch that he ran away after they struggled with him to get him out of his Hong Kong Phooey pajamas, he wanted to laze around in them all day, they said yesterday they had the same problem, only it was Army pajamas. They believe he may be hiding out in Germanton. Usually they offer a reward for the safe return of a missing person, but the City of King realized the offer of a cash reward may motivate someone to look for him, so no cash reward in this case. I would, being the nice person I am, advise people that he kicks, bites and swears a lot. And, don't believe him he doesn't use toilet paper, he just poops and pees in his depends.

That's true, but it will also,(just in case the ACLU comes into it and forces the City Of King to look for him), allow searchers to know where to avoid.

Rob and Dixie flirt at a seniors' singles bar. After a few drinks, Dixie asks Rob, "If I took you out for a full night of wining, dining and dancing, what would you wear?"
Rob replies shyly, "Depends...."
"Depends on what?" Dixie asks.

"On my bottom -- where else?!"
