Today, the Supreme Court of the United States handed down an opinion in Shurtleff v. Boston, holding 9-0 that the city of Boston violated the First Amendment when it refused to fly the Christian flag at city hall. The American Humanist Association denounces this decision and defends the City of Boston’s actions.

“To realize a truly inclusive democracy, we must reject the myth that the United States was founded upon Judeo-Christian values,” comments AHA Executive Director Nadya Dutchin. “We are disappointed in the Supreme Court’s decision to support the continued erosion of separation of church and state.”
