Christian nationalist flag bill advances

A bill introduced by State Senator John Kavanagh (R-Fountain Hills), SB1022, would force HOAs to privilege a Christian nationalist hate group’s flag. The bill will be considered in Senate Government Committee on 10am Jan 17th. Public comments will be heard.

Governor Katie Hobbs (D) signed a similar bill written by Kavanagh this year, privileging the Betsy Ross flag. SB1022 goes much further.

The “Appeal to Heaven” flag was flown prominently by extremists during the Jan. 6th insurrection (above). It is connected to a political movement of evangelical Christians who oppose same-sex marriage, reproductive freedoms, and other supposed “biblical” principles. Similar protections are not offered for flags representing the beliefs of Americans with any other religious views.
