Subsequent to burning through $12,500 to raise two extra flagpoles before City Hall and endorsing what the board presently sees as an absurd banner arrangement, just the Pride banner has been flown so far on what is alluded to as the solidarity post. En route, the board discussed and slowed down after demands were made to fly the Christian banner, the Thin Blue Line banner, the Breast Cancer Awareness banner, and most as of late the white COVID banner.
Indeed, even as individuals from the general population voiced their disappointment over the whole banner issue, the gathering casted a ballot to support flying the Christian banner in April 2022, alongside the Thin Blue Line banner and the Breast Cancer Awareness banner in October, as well as cancelling the whole banner strategy.
The Christian banner solicitation came through Councilman Rick Perez after an application with 120 marks by Hollister occupants was submitted last June. It was postponed, however, as a letter was shipped off the state’s principal legal officer for an assessment.
Then, at that point, when the chance emerged that the banner approach would be repealed, Mayor Ignacio Velazquez said he mentioned that it be put on the Sept. 20 plan without sitting tight for the head legal officer’s reaction.
Velazquez related how he ventured out to Afghanistan in 2003, where he said he saw issues among Islam and Christianity. He didn’t clarify what he implied, however he at last recommended the flying of the Christian banner ought to be taken back to the committee despite the fact that it was clear by his prior remarks that he would not help it.
Perez said, “With respect to Afghanistan, this is America, and we have opportunity here. I’m weary of this entire banner issue, so we should get to a vote and continue on.” He later apologized for “being excessively brutal.”
Four occupants scrutinized the committee’s thought processes concerning victimization Christianity, an absence of information on the Constitution, and the chance of claims.
Salinas couldn’t help contradicting different speakers, saying she accepted the division of chapel and state did apply, and rehashed a remark she made at a past chamber meeting: “That Christian banner doesn’t address myself, nor a huge, calm larger part of the local area.”
She proceeded to say that the main explanation there was a development to raise the Christian banner was on the grounds that the LGBTQ Pride banner was flown. She guaranteed, without confirmation, that neighborhood Christians “don’t need the gay banner up there in light of the fact that it’s corrupt.”
