Man Proposes Flying Non-Christian Flags at King Vets Memorial

KING, NC (WGHP) — A man who proposed flying the Muslim flag at the King Veterans Memorial on Sept. 11 decided to move the date on Tuesday.

Steven Hewett, who won four of the 52 weeks of the limited public forum lottery in December, will now fly the Muslim flag on the week of Nov. 28 and leave the flagpole empty on the week of Sept. 5, which includes Sept. 11.

Hewett will also fly the Buddhist flag next week and the Jewish flag on the week of Nov. 21. Hewett originally proposed flying the Christian flag on all four weeks.
