Town fights demand to remove Christian flag: ‘It’s going to get worse . . . but we cannot bow down’

A small Mississippi town is fighting back after it was forced to remove a Christian flag from a war memorial.

More than 100 people gathered at Veterans Memorial Park in Rienzi with many of them waving Christian flags after the mayor had to remove the flag due to a threat of a lawsuit from the Freedom from Religion Foundation, WREG reported.

“I’m telling you folks I’m no preacher. But it’s going to get worse; can I get an Amen? It’s going to get worse, but we cannot bow down. We can’t lay down if we stand up till our death, that’s what we need to do,” rally organizer Kevin Nelms, WCBI reported. “There just comes a point in time when you’ve got to be politically incorrect and take a stand,” said Nelms.

“I never dreamed that something like this would have happened in a town this small, but it happened,” Mayor Walter Williams said.

“You can bet your bottom dollar, that flag is gonna fly again,” he added.

The rally came after a recent letter sent to the town by the FRF threatened a $500,000 lawsuit if the flag wasn’t removed from the war memorial.
