First Christian Church in Katy receives dozens of Pride flags and donations after thieves continue to steal them

The First Christian Church on Cinco Ranch Road near Katy is receiving support and donations from all over the country after their Pride flags continue to be stolen by thieves.

“I think this is too much hate in the world and this was my way of sort of countering that hate, making it be just a little more positive, so this was my act of goodness,” Luis Salinas said.

Reverend Heather Tolleson said it happened over a dozen times this month. The most recent incident happened Sunday in broad daylight, and it was caught on camera.

On Monday, Tolleson and Salinas met for the first time. Luis drove from Montrose to donate a bag full of Pride flags after seeing KPRC 2’s story about thieves stealing them from the First Christian church near Katy several times this month.

“I just felt that this was horrible what people are doing. It’s such a hateful act just taking something from somebody just because of hate. So, I was just trying to counter that hate with a little good will for these people,” he said.
