(Watch Live) A man who tore down a Pride flag in his city has said he did it because it was 'mocking God' - and he believes his actions are protected under the First Amendment. Charges have been brought against Barrigar over the incident, which he recorded and shared on YouTube. Meanwhile, city officials have come up with the best possible rebuke to Barrigar’s actions - they will instead keep the flag up for even longer. Officials have taken measures to secure the flag to the pole and have decided to keep it up for the rest of the month. It was originally due to fly in the city for just one weekend.
