It’s going to be a long June for me here in Mad City. Why you ask, do I say this?
Because for the next month, people will talk about an issue of immense moral, social and political importance as if it were a professional sporting event. Really and truly, what of substance is accomplished by putting up a rainbow flag? This kind of virtue signaling is indicative of the immaturity of the activists.
Want to win the respect of your neighbor? Then doing something worthy of respect.
Here’s a hint. That ain’t putting up a flag advertising your allegiance to a cause most everyone in town supports or at least won’t publicly criticize.
You can read about the flag at the link under my signature.
The flag will be flown over the Capitol’s East Wing through June 30, which is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month.
