At least some cities in this country are willing to stand up for morality and common decency.If you're gay,why must you insist on marching around telling everyone?

Minnesotans are conventional, salt-of-the-earth type of people. It is contrary to their sense of decency for people to flaunt their sexuality.
It is also contrary to their sense of patriotism to fly the rainbow flag on the same flagpole as an American Flag.

halloween parades are for the kids, last thing people needs is fagsnpedophiles handing candy to their 5yr old. SanFran is the place for that parade.

So they don't mention having an opposite-sex spouse? No wet t-shirt contests or trip clubs? No beauty pageants? BS. Straights flaunt their orientation all the time.

Per the flag code, you can fly another flag on the same pole as the US flag as long as the latter is topmost.

Why do queers have such trouble with reading comprehension? I didn't say that you couldn't fly another flag on the same flagpole as the American Flag. I said it would insult some peoples sense of patriotism if they saw a rainbow flag on the same flagpole as the American Flag.

Too bad. There are more gay patriots in this country than there are people in Minnesota.

Maybe for the attention. You know, like you, who has to go around telling everyone lies, like gay people are not moral and decent people and that you don't like them.

Why don't you shut up?

Is 'fagsnpedophiles' a word from your alternative reality?
I never heard it before.

Why would you say that? Aren't homosexuals also U.S. citizens if they were born here (or are naturalized citizens)?

I wouldn't be surprised if there's the idea of a discrimination lawsuit against the city.

I never said that queers are not citizens. I said "It is also contrary to their [Minnesotans] sense of patriotism to fly the rainbow flag on the same flagpole as an American Flag."

Yes, a lawsuit. It's the new homosexual retirement plan.

The idea of a group of sexual deviants marching in a parade geared toward children is ludicrous!

Look what happened to the Catholic Church when it got lax on homosexual priests!
