The Richmond Federal Reserve Bank, a private financial institution, decided to honor LGBT Pride month by flying a gay pride flag right underneath the American flag on its pole. This sticks in the craw of some of its neighbors, unfortunately, to include the anti-gay group The Family Foundation.
The Family Foundation has an excellent view of the flag from their office windows, and boy are they pissed!
"Though The Family Foundation's new office in Richmond has a beautiful view of the state capitol and the flags, the rainbow flag fluttering from the flagpole outside the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond is also in view. Foundation president Victoria Cobb does not expect it to fly away any time soon.
"'Our expectation is it'll be flying all month,' she predicts. 'We think the Federal Reserve ought to be focused on the economy rather than focusing on special rights.'"
What, because there's an Economy Pride month? So they should be flying the flag... uh, of our economy?
"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.'"
Well, the bank clearly doesn't give a shit. They pretty much told detractors of the flag to eff off, and Victoria Cobb is quite correct in her prediction: they plan to fly the flag all month long.
