Melbourne, May 1 (ANI): British council officials have threatened a vicar with 1000-pound fine if he continues to fly a flag of Jesus Christ outside his church.
According to the council officials, they were banning the flag because it advertises Christianity.
The reverend, 52, had hoisted the flag up a 30ft flagpole outside St Andrews Church in Hampton, Evesham, Worcestershire, to celebrate Easter's Holy Week, reports the Courier Mail.
And since the flag was not placed on church's roof, the vicar is said to have violated planning law because he did not apply for 'Advertising Consent' from the council. (ANI)
