HAPPY GAY/LESBIAN MONTH!  11:31 am June 2, 2011

Virginia Confederacy Annoyed By Gay Flag At Richmond Federal Reserve

by Wonkette Jr.

Or are you some kind of atheist?Deep in the confederate stronghold of Richmond, Virginia, there’s something mighty queer afoot: The Federal Reserve building in Richmond has a homosexual rainbow flag fluttering beneath the American flag. Why? Apparently it’s National Gay and Lesbian and BLT Month, and if President Obama wasn’t already minority enough, he is also promoting this celebration of the degenerate “gay lifestyle.” If that rainbow flag continues flying all month, as planned, up to 47% of straight white Virginians might “turn gay” just by being exposed to the colorful banner.

A website has a news article about this:

Meanwhile, the Mississippi-based American Family Association has received a complaint from a Federal Reserve employee who objects to the flag and what it represents. In reference to the “gay pride” flag flying just below the American flag, the employee wrote in an email: “For the past five or six years, the homosexual agenda has been pushed down our throats. [The bank president and vice president] have initiated this agenda. This offends me as a Christian.”

Haha, these people are always talking about things being pushed down their throats. Fantasizing much, guys? [One News Now via Wonkette operative "Eric G."]

"BLT Month,"
Mmmmm, bacon!

MittsHairHelmet June 2, 2011 at 11:37 am

Wasn't it a bit stupid to go to war over sandwiches?

OneDollarJuana June 2, 2011 at 11:42 am

Wasn't there a war of the roses? Why not sandwiches?

otakuboyt June 2, 2011 at 12:18 pm

It was in Pasadena, my car was owned by a little old lady from there,

Lascauxcaveman June 2, 2011 at 12:42 pm

A brand new shiny red Super Stock Dodge?

Barb June 2, 2011 at 11:52 am

There was a war of sandwiches. It was fought with subs.

Doktor Zoom June 2, 2011 at 11:58 am

Said one of the sailors as the vessel was hit, "Dude, we're toast."

jqheywood June 2, 2011 at 12:05 pm

Said another of the sailors on that doomed vessel, "This ship was neutral…can't they lettuce alone?"

kateinmt June 3, 2011 at 4:36 pm

Those po'boys.

Fare la Volpe June 2, 2011 at 12:03 pm

There were heros on both sides.

Barb June 2, 2011 at 12:14 pm

This is classic! I'm still laughing, thanks!

Bonzos_Bed_Time June 2, 2011 at 12:09 pm

They were full of seamen.

WriteyWriterton June 2, 2011 at 12:12 pm

Wait, what? The sandwiches? Ew!

Swampgas_Man June 2, 2011 at 6:43 pm

I'd go to war for a good Reuben right now.

By which I mean, I'd shoot somebody for it.

Kidneys4Sale June 2, 2011 at 12:15 pm

Sry. Stands for 'Butt'.

DeeJayKitteh June 2, 2011 at 12:16 pm

If the gays have co-opted bacon, then we truly have won. No one can resist bacon!

Biel_ze_Bubba June 2, 2011 at 12:23 pm

Very clever strategy. I bet you could force that down their throats without hearing any complaints.

CrankyLttlCamperette June 2, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Wait, so it was teh gheys who were behind Baconnaise?

GOPCrusher June 2, 2011 at 5:02 pm

And Baconalia.

finallyhappy June 2, 2011 at 6:22 pm

I like the gheys- but vegetarians do not eat bacon

HempDogbane June 2, 2011 at 12:34 pm

If that Vida girl keeps it up, those Virginians will be wanting vegetables on their BLTs.

AznMom420 June 3, 2011 at 1:30 am

Few things more bacchanalian than taking the girls from the drag club out for bacconalia at dennys.

Lascauxcaveman June 2, 2011 at 11:35 am

"This offends me as Christian"? But I thought Jesus was down with the sinners, crooks and gays.

(No, I didn't say 'went down.' Get your mind outta the gutter, Christians.)

snoopyfan2010 June 2, 2011 at 12:49 pm

Yes, something about only the sick needing a doctor, right?

chilequiles June 2, 2011 at 5:18 pm

Stupid lepers should pull themselves up by their bootstraps. The lesions are just god's way of saying he hates them.

Well you should of thought about that before I thought about that!

Angry_Marmot June 3, 2011 at 5:47 am

You're thinking of Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth. The easily offended one is American Jesus™ with franchises all over the country. Happens all the time.

nounverb911 June 2, 2011 at 11:35 am

"Mississippi-based American Family Association has received a complaint from a Federal Reserve employee who objects to the flag and what it represents."
What about the confederate flag?

KeepFnThatChicken June 2, 2011 at 11:45 am

Heritage, not hate. You wear your X, I'll wear mine.

Doktor Zoom June 2, 2011 at 11:47 am

OH, totally different. Cuz that one's about Heritage, not hate, you know.

mumbly_joe June 2, 2011 at 11:59 am

Heritage of hate, that is.

Lascauxcaveman June 2, 2011 at 12:51 pm

The gays can play the "heritage" card too, y'know.

Fly your gay confederate freak flag high, gays!

"These colors run like a girl."

elviouslyqueer June 2, 2011 at 1:31 pm

OMG WANT. (Although explaining it to my African-American boyfriend might be a bit problematic, mind.)

CalamityJames June 2, 2011 at 2:04 pm

Dammit, I should have known you'd have a cullerd fella. Oh well, I'm still fapping away to that Chris Pine avatar.

Sue4466 June 2, 2011 at 11:49 am

Oh, the confederate flag's okay. No one would confuse it with tolerance, human rights, or common decency.

Redhead June 2, 2011 at 12:01 pm

That's about white men persecuting other people. This rainbow flag is about white (closeted) men feeling persecuted by other people. See the difference?

Terry June 2, 2011 at 12:18 pm

Apparently, the Confederate flag should be flying ABOVE the American flag.

zhubajie June 2, 2011 at 6:12 pm

Don't they object to everything? Maybe they should just list the 1-2 things they DON'T object to?

Arken June 2, 2011 at 11:35 am

No, I'm totally with them. If these homosexuals try to push their agenda on me, they can suck my cock!

Tengu June 2, 2011 at 11:36 am

Wait till they see the Fed's new three dollar bill.

No, but G. Gordon Liddy is cuming out of the closet.

MissusBarry June 2, 2011 at 11:36 am

Walking by the Lucky Charms in the cereal aisle turned me gay just last week.

UpFistTroll June 2, 2011 at 11:38 am

Don't worry, I hear walking past the "Wheaties" will turn you straight again.

Ah, the cure…right in front of our noses all these years!

Bonzos_Bed_Time June 2, 2011 at 12:15 pm

Yes, all those pictures of strapping young men, oozing testosterone driven virility will make you think about lady parts like nothing else!

UpFistTroll June 2, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Fine, YOU try to find a "straight" cereal. I seriously thought about this. Grape Nuts? No way. Rice Krispies? I don't think so. Maybe those old generic white boxes of "CORN FLAKES" with the black Army-stencil lettering on them.

Lascauxcaveman June 2, 2011 at 12:56 pm

Naw, that last one is clearly a case of overcompensating.

SexySmurf June 2, 2011 at 11:45 am

What happened when you looked at the Fruity Pebbles?

Fare la Volpe June 2, 2011 at 11:47 am

Talk about a gay old time.

MissusBarry June 2, 2011 at 11:51 am

Satan's hand is everywhere, tempting me to sin. I think it best I join a convent, where I can be married to Jeebus and live happily ever after. Or, just not eat cereal or drive by the Federal Reserve down yonder. /crisis=solved

neiltheblaze June 2, 2011 at 12:03 pm

Take it from Katherine Jean Lopez – that doesn't always work. She was a bride of Jesus too – but it didn't stop her from lusting after the viscerally manly charms of Jonah Goldberg or Ross Douthat. She lusted in her heart, at the very least, and Jesus was pretty jealous.

What does Jesus need with all those brides anyway? What is he, Mormon or something?

neiltheblaze June 2, 2011 at 12:08 pm

I see Mr. Downfisty also lusts after the manly charms of Jonah Goldberg and Ross Douthat too. Or maybe it's the manly charms of Katherine Jean Lopez.

weejee June 2, 2011 at 11:58 am

"This offends me as a Christian.”

Yep…

Naked_Bunny June 2, 2011 at 11:58 am

I assume by "this" he means "idolatry".

Terry June 2, 2011 at 12:20 pm

Maybe it's the the whole money changing thing that offends him. Didn't Jesus drive the money changers out of the temple?

BlueMonkeh June 2, 2011 at 1:30 pm

Don't worry. Said offendee was probably busy forwarding the "libruls and their stupid political correctness" emails before that little bit of COLOR caught his eye.

MLite June 2, 2011 at 11:38 am

Haha, Da Gayz are going to infect all the money with their gay-ness, and then everyone will be gay…including China because they have all our money. Oh lord, 1.3 billion gay Chinese…truly the End Times are upon us!

mavenmaven June 2, 2011 at 11:46 am

Ken Jeong would then have competition for the next few Hangover movies…

PubOption June 2, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Would solve the population problem in China.

MLite June 2, 2011 at 1:11 pm

But then where would we adopt our babies from?

zhubajie June 2, 2011 at 6:14 pm

Believe me, there are lots of non-gay Chinese!

SorosBot June 2, 2011 at 11:38 am

Those mean gays, existing and all just so they can offend this poor Christian banker. What's next – some atheists and Muslims will exist to offend him? Or uppity women who don't act as their husbands' property? Poor oppressed Christian, not being allowed to oppress everyone who isn't him.

GOPCrusher June 2, 2011 at 5:11 pm

You know, I can honestly say that I've never had a gay person show up at my door, trying to shove a Chick Tract or Book of Mormon or The Watchtower in my hand.
Who's offending who?

memzilla June 2, 2011 at 11:38 am

They were really annoyed because the Rainbow Flag was flying above the Confederate Flag.

GhostBuggy June 2, 2011 at 11:59 am

I've heard the Confederate flag likes to be on the bottom, though.

sweetcommunist June 2, 2011 at 3:12 pm

Hey, this ain't South Carolina. We Virginians know better than to fly the Confederate flag.

…she types, sitting in an office two blocks away from the Museum of the Confederacy

simplyblue7 June 2, 2011 at 11:38 am

"If that rainbow flag continues flying all month, as planned, up to 47% of straight white Virginians might “turn gay” just by being exposed to the colorful banner"

So that's all it takes to turn my cute coworker gay? I'll be right back…

genxr June 2, 2011 at 12:13 pm

Stop that. I told you already, my cubicle does not need redecorating.

nappyduggs June 2, 2011 at 1:20 pm

"I'll be right back."
Not if you do it right, honey.

WhatTheHeck June 2, 2011 at 11:39 am

Aren't these guys satisfied with all the Tornadoes god is sending to rip those gay flags to shreds? Or do they want god to do some more natural-disaster christian “work?’

Lascauxcaveman June 2, 2011 at 1:04 pm

I hear they're wiping out western Massachusetts, now. Oh, let me guess, that must be the most Christian part of the state. Why isn't God sending a few twisters to wipe out Boston? I hear that place is gayer than Sodom.

hagajim June 2, 2011 at 11:39 am

Those homo bankers are ruining everything.

SexySmurf June 2, 2011 at 11:40 am

If that Christian is so concerned with morality then why is he working for the Federal Reserve?

4TheTurnstiles June 2, 2011 at 11:40 am

The only pleasure these people get is in being offended. That is, of pleasures they publicly admit to or refuse to lie about.

FNMA June 2, 2011 at 11:53 am

So what you're saying is that they derive pleasure from having things crammed down their throats?

Pithaughn June 2, 2011 at 12:44 pm

Ah, but they have to exaggerate their offense with style to really get off, especially the second time. My sister tells me that there is now a daily "assault" in CA schools of cross dressers, trans-gender wanna be s etc. An ASSAULT. When pressed for numbers and actual examples, not so much. Apparently the random low frequency kid actually is multiplied in their mind because they are exposed to the same incident over and over in the echo chamber of Rite Wing Noize that is their reality.

OneDollarJuana June 2, 2011 at 11:41 am

Why are Southerners offended by the slogan "Jesus has two daddies"? Hell, Jesus is his own daddy! How much more Southern can you get?

If it wasn't for the fact that the male sexytime parts, including mine, hold no appeal for me at all, I'd go gay just to piss these fuckers off.

You could be a much snappier dresser though, just think of that!

KeepFnThatChicken June 2, 2011 at 11:42 am

For the past five or six years, the homosexual agenda has been pushed down our throats.

Well, at least you can't get pregnant that way.

Swampgas_Man June 2, 2011 at 6:50 pm

Personally, I think we should shove it up their asses.

freakishlywrong June 2, 2011 at 11:43 am

This give me an excuse to use "buttsecks" in a sentance. I wonder how much that offended Xtian wants to get buttsecked by a big strapping gay? His sphincter is probably all a-quiver.

neiltheblaze June 2, 2011 at 11:44 am

BLT PRIDE!!!!

Try to add a little color into the drab, boring lives of pathetic straight Southern guys and what happens? They flip!

Well, being homosexual I'm only interested in shoving one thing down the throat of this droopy-eyed Confederate Gomer. And it ain't my "agenda", Nancy Boy.

Chet Kincaid June 2, 2011 at 2:22 pm

"Flip" has two meanings! Stop gay-agendizing decent language!

neiltheblaze June 2, 2011 at 4:15 pm

I think of it as "faggotizing" – but whatevs.

Smitros June 2, 2011 at 11:44 am

So fractional reserve banking and a fiat currency are gay, and the best-known alternative is gold buggery. What's a straight man to do for a medium of exchange and a store of value?

WriteyWriterton June 2, 2011 at 12:20 pm

Um…quantitative easing, wink-wink, nudge-nudge?

Smitros June 2, 2011 at 12:30 pm

I don't know. QE and QE2 refer to, um, a queen.

'Tis a quandary, then.

"Rammed." Ram tough!

littlebigdaddy June 2, 2011 at 12:21 pm

No, that's "rammed up your ass" and, yeah, I guess that's pretty gay.

PhilippePetain June 2, 2011 at 12:22 pm

I think I may start going on Breitbart and complain about "THIS GAY AGENDA GETTING RAMMED UP OUR ASSES" every time they have a bigoted post and see if the dumbfucks get on board.

prommie June 2, 2011 at 12:32 pm

They'll probably tell you to shove your gay agenda up your ass, and that you should get lost before they stick their boot up your ass, and that you can just suck their dick if you don't like it, too.

SorosBot June 2, 2011 at 11:47 am

"Pushed down our throats?" I'm offended as a comedian.

Poindexter718 June 2, 2011 at 11:55 am

I'm offended as an economist: everyone knows teh gays are prepared to expand M1 in the interest of full employment regardless of the resulting inflationary pressures.

littlebigdaddy June 2, 2011 at 12:23 pm

That's because of their well-known tendency to get hysterical at the slightest little thing.

donner_froh June 2, 2011 at 2:06 pm

You had me at "expand" but I just went wile with "pressure".

Doktor Zoom June 2, 2011 at 11:55 am

Reminds me of that old obituary headline: "Chester Morrill, 92, Was Fed Secretary".

And the gays probably crammed that down his throat as well.

seppdecker June 2, 2011 at 11:55 am

Obscene money lending and market manipulations don't offend him, but a bit of colored cloth does. Nice priorities, closet case.

CapeClod June 2, 2011 at 11:55 am

We should be concerned. Its not like these Christians are easily offended.

BlueMonkeh June 2, 2011 at 11:57 am

randcoolcatdaddy June 2, 2011 at 11:57 am

As a worshipper of Zeus, these upstart Christians are most offensive to my sensibilities.

weejee June 2, 2011 at 12:00 pm

They're scared that historians will discover that Stonewall Jackson's real name was Johnson and his Stonewall nickname had nothing to do with piles of rocks.

“For the past five or six years, the homosexual agenda has been pushed down our throats."

It all started with that g–damned Bush administration and their intrusive social engineering!

But I thought Christians love fairies, especially sky fairies.

mrpuma2u June 2, 2011 at 2:17 pm

Umm fairies are little woodland emissaries of satan. At least to these mouth breather cousin humpin' rednecks.

Satan.

Wotan?

All of th… oh, fuck it.

ThundercatHo June 2, 2011 at 12:08 pm

A rainbow flag offends you? Oh, so sorry. Cuz the giant aborted fetus pictures on billboards, truck panels, etc. is not offensive at all. In fact, it was so tastefully done that I'm thinking of hanging one in my living room. Fucking asshole.

CivicHoliday June 2, 2011 at 12:11 pm

Jesus didn't really have two daddies. He just had a mommy who was good at lying and who liked "riding the donkey to bethlehem" in more than one way.

ThundercatHo June 2, 2011 at 12:15 pm

The celebration of the degenerate "gay lifestyle" month will finish up with President Obama flying his unicorn over a sparkling rainbow all the way down to Florida. There, he will shove his gigantic, negro penis up Rush Limbaugh's flabby ass whilst our favorite radio personality sings "Rocket Man" into his golden microphone.

Biel_ze_Bubba June 2, 2011 at 1:08 pm

Sounds fabulous!

realmurkin June 5, 2011 at 8:46 pm

I hope Barry uses protection. I don't even want to think about what mutant strains of disease must fester up in there.

prommie June 2, 2011 at 12:18 pm

I spent my high school years living in the Souf, and I can testify that your typical straight white cracker rednecks tend to be strangely obsessed with ass-fucking. The topic just comes up waaaaay too much, in taunts, threats, and jokes. If you rile up a cracker, without fail the first thing they will do is threaten to stick something up your ass, usually their "gun," sometimes a boot. They are just plain obsessed with what they call "cornholing," they fantasize about prison rape. Its creepy. I think they're all just jealous of teh gheys.

SexySmurf June 2, 2011 at 12:24 pm

So, Deliverance was a documentary?

Deliverance was written by a respected poet, James Dickey, and the central theme of gay rape is not meant to be sensationalist or shocking, its an exploration of a big part of the psyche of the southern male, their fascination with sodomy as a dominance display, and their fear of it, of being emasculated by being butt-fucked.

UpFistTroll June 2, 2011 at 12:54 pm

Okay, so you basically said when I did below, but with much more eloquence.

prommie June 2, 2011 at 1:19 pm

Me rite good! Yay!

WhatTheHolyHeck June 2, 2011 at 1:23 pm

So it's basically ancient Rome all over again, but without the laurel wreaths or decent plumbing.

littlebigdaddy June 2, 2011 at 12:30 pm

Yeah, I played football in high school in that region and it was the most latent homosexual environment I have ever experienced. (I was never in the military). I think it is fair to say that those people have contemplated the mechanics of buttsechs more than just about anyone else on the planet.

prommie June 2, 2011 at 12:41 pm

The topic of sex with farm animals was also a constant.

UpFistTroll June 2, 2011 at 12:50 pm

Oh, I don't know, it seems to fit right along with that whole "it's not gay if you're the man" attitude. That's what these people are afraid of: not the gays themselves, but the terrifying fact that they might be the bottom in a relationship.

Peace in our time June 2, 2011 at 1:08 pm

To be fair to the rednecks, it's not always their fault.

Some farm animals can be VERY seductive!

prommie June 2, 2011 at 1:18 pm

That heifer was asking for it, she was giving me the eye, teasing me.

Chet Kincaid June 2, 2011 at 2:37 pm

It's a Homeopathic treatment for Homosexuality.* The more assfucking in word and deed, the more you immunize yourself against the Queer Flu!

*Yeah, I know what I did there.

If I had a nickel for every time one of these outrage-stuffed evangelical wing-nuts goes off on anything inclusive, I'd be in that 10% that's gonna be the target of all future advertising.

MMathS June 2, 2011 at 12:19 pm

I guess this is where I hop off the libtard train. Bigotry aside, why is the federal government recognizing gay pride and/or flying gay pride flag?

Fare la Volpe June 2, 2011 at 12:24 pm

Because it's 235 years late.

WriteyWriterton June 2, 2011 at 12:26 pm

[snark off]
I think the point is to celebrate diversity and inclusion – supposed U.S.-y values.

On the other hand, you can get yourself in a right fix if you celebrate diversity with flag-flying to the extent it means flying a flag for homophobic racists – i.e., The Stars and Bars.

[snark on]

MMathS June 2, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Yeah. I mean, I didn't mean to offend anyone by my humble question, as opposed to the reason behind flying the ol' stars and bars over government buildings.

I guess I see the diversity/inclusiveness purpose. Folks should keep downfisting me, though.

BaldarTFlagass June 2, 2011 at 12:53 pm

Probably for the same reason they blow the horn for Black History Month in February, Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (May), Filipino American Heritage Month (October), National Hispanic Heritage Month (Sep-Oct), Jewish American Heritage Month (May), Women's History Month (March), National Disability Employment Awareness Month (October), Irish-American Heritage Month (March, of course).
So, do you have something against micks, gimps, gashes, yids, spics, flips, gooks, niggers, and homos?

AJWjr. June 2, 2011 at 1:13 pm

All of them, Katie?

MMathS June 2, 2011 at 1:48 pm

Wait. You don't?

finallyhappy June 2, 2011 at 6:30 pm

For our Month- Jewish Heritage- we have asked that they fly a corned beef sandwich .

problemwithcaring June 2, 2011 at 9:55 pm

And Black people don't even want a flag, let alone fly one on the Federal building. We just want the racist ones that are already up there to come down for 28 days.

BlueMonkeh June 2, 2011 at 3:19 pm

No, no no…you stay on that libtard crazy train.

We can all appreciate a difference of opinion as long as there is no halt to the snark.

Word.

Mort_Sinclair June 2, 2011 at 12:21 pm

Apparently they didn't get the memo in Virginia that the word is no longer gay, it's Takei. Who doesn't love themselves a little George Takei and his quest to gayify America? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRkIWB3HIEs

It's been 6 days now, and I still can't stop laughing about your use of the word "brownest" to describe that song. You slay me.

How about teh gheys take down their fag flag right after th rednecks take down their traitor flag a/k/a the confederate flag.

WriteyWriterton June 2, 2011 at 12:37 pm

Well said. I tell Lubavitchers who approach me that I'll be happy to listen to them the day they let women worship in the same pews as men.

WriteyWriterton June 2, 2011 at 12:38 pm

Though I'm not sure "pews" is the right word, but I'm a really lousy excuse for teh Jewishness.

One minute you're looking at a pretty multi colored flag, the next minute you are a mo fuck toy during Fleet Week.

And somewhere Dr. Barry Hussian chuckles..

Does this mean we can now play the Don't ask, don't tell card during an IRS audit? The Conservetards would love that!!!

"This offends me as a Christian"

Honestly, I guess we have something in common, then, because the AFA used to offend me as a Christian, back when I was one.

aguacatero June 2, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Lucky that particular gay pride flag happens to be a bottom, or this would be an even bigger controversy!

BlueStateLibel June 2, 2011 at 12:32 pm

It's nice to know an employee of the Federal Reserve is worried most about–gays! One day, I think, the shit will really hit the fan, and gays, birth control and all the other wedge issues will be wiped once and for all from the minds of the small-minded cretins. Until then, I think I'll hang the gay flag proudly from my home just to piss them off.

Oblios_Cap June 2, 2011 at 12:33 pm

I find the depictions of a man nailed to a cross, whipped and wearing a crown of thorns rather distrubing, but not as distrubing as people telling me that he did it for me and that I need to constantly praise him for his suffering on my behalf.

Oh, and though his blood supposedly washed away all my sins, all men are still sinners . So what was the point of going through all that, dude?

finallyhappy June 2, 2011 at 6:31 pm

not for me- I am Jewish so I am damn glad he didn't go through all that shit on my account.

Fair's fair. Fat, garbage-eating conservatives offend me as a lean, sexy (arguably!) person, but you don't see me sending emails whining about it to Huckabee, Chrisite, or Ailes.

OneYieldRegular June 2, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Speaking of rainbow flags, did anyone see John Boehner's tie yesterday?

ThundercatHo June 2, 2011 at 2:00 pm

Eric Cantor (Rectum, VA) bought it for him for Big Daddy's Day.

snapfinger23 June 2, 2011 at 12:48 pm

As a Christian, I am totally NOT offended. And neither are my gay neighbors in the pew.

glamourdammerung June 2, 2011 at 12:58 pm

I am more offended that we do not send drone strikes on places with "rebel" flags. But I have very low tolerance for terrorists, so I guess that some Breitard is going to cry about how I am a bigot.

glamourdammerung June 2, 2011 at 1:03 pm

Hitler was not only Christian, but deeply concerned about how Christianity was not represented in the laws and governing of the country. Sound familiar?

Chet Kincaid June 2, 2011 at 2:33 pm

Opinions differ on that. The most you can say definitively is that Christianity was part of his toolbox for achieving his ends.

glamourdammerung June 2, 2011 at 2:58 pm

He was a Catholic in good standing until that whole suicide thing. And the Catholics certainly helped out with moving Nazis after the war when the "we had to do it or get killed" excuse was not credible.

mumbly_joe June 2, 2011 at 1:12 pm

Huh. Weird. And here I was assuming that the rainbow flag just meant that that's where they be keepin' me pot o' gold.

WhatTheHolyHeck June 2, 2011 at 1:25 pm

It is deeply, fundamentally unfair that this comment is buried on page 2.

As a former long time resident of Richmond (graduate school) that is definitely not the gayest thing going on it town. Dirt woman versus Dickie disgusting?

Very hypocritical considering that Jefferson Davis was wearing a dress when he was captured.

Sassomatic June 2, 2011 at 3:40 pm

But that flag doesn't represent homosexuality, it represents our, um, heritage. Our queer heritage.

lochnessmonster June 2, 2011 at 5:37 pm

Wow, can't imagine what they think of the new Illinois law about civil partnerships.

BZ1 June 2, 2011 at 5:41 pm

The group that protested is advocating the flying of the Christian Flag, described as "…unlike all national flags and all denominational flags of various churches, it has no earthly bonds or allegiances…" what the goooblygook does this mean?

carlgt1 June 2, 2011 at 11:06 pm

well it's not going to make them gay – e.g. it's not like flying the Confederate flag on gov't buildings has made the people of the south a bunch of traitorous, racist hicks — oh wait a minute…

Negropolis June 3, 2011 at 12:18 am

Meanwhile, the Mississippi-based…

Stop. Yeah, right there. You had me at "Mississippi-based."

BTW, I know we joke about "pushed down our throats", but honestly, what is that? That's not a phrase I've ever used, and it seems to come up every.damned.time a conservative feels threatened, regardless of their socio-economic background. It's always about throats and stuff being forced down them.
