The flags are purchased and flown at constituents' requests, and include personal messages that until last week could not make mention of God or other religious sentiments.
God should never have been censored, said Ohio Republican Rep. Michael Turner, who represents LaRochelle and processed his flag request. Our religious freedoms, protected in the Constitution, will always be challenged, and it will take all of us to be diligent to protect these freedoms."

Please ping your Scouting list.
