*** If gays make up less than 10% of the overall population, why are these folks so afraid? Because they are cowards, that's why:





Organizers of the Antelope Valley Fair in Lancaster, Calif., north of Los Angeles, have taken down rainbow flags after receiving a complaint about the flags’ association with the LGBT rights movement, NBC’s Los Angeles affiliate reported Friday.



The flags were among several colorful ones flying at the fair,
and organizers were reportedly unaware of the gay connection. General manager Dan Jacobs said he received a call “from a very irate individual that explained to me what we had up,” Jacobs told the station.



Fair organizers say they were not making a political statement by either flying the flags or taking them down, but officials of the the Lancaster Outreach Center, a social service agency, said taking them down sends a negative message.



“This isn’t the first time the Antelope Valley has faced allegations of bigotry,” the TV station reported. The U.S. Justice Department is investigating allegations of civil rights violations by police in Lancaster and neighboring Palmdale.

What? The bringing down the flags or the fact that anyone cares about this garbage?



Personally I think this should be on like page 10 of the National Enquirer behind the bearded lady who married Bigfoot.

Clowns. Spiders. Heights. And religious extremists. Definitely religious extremists. Give one of those psychotics a foothold and we get Fred Phelps (best case scenario), or we get f@$%ing Jonestown (worst case scenario), or we get G.W. Bush on steroids (apocalypse scenario.)

Where does it say anyone was afraid of homosexuals?



Ray did you make up that part??



Funny how you disingenuously change "principled opposition" to "afraid"



But then you homosexual activists just love to twist language and "studies" to bolster your flagging case

*** I once was afraid of greasy un-educated bigots. Not any more.



Oh, they still are greasy and ignorant, but now in the minority.



You can lead a hell-bent bigot to the articles, but you can't make them learn.
