Because Nothing Says ‘Acceptance’ Like….Errr…Coercion..

Abingdon town council has voted against a motion to fly the rainbow flag from the town’s county hall for a Pride event.

By one vote. But that’s democracy for you. And it’s not like they didn’t have a good reason:

The council said the flag would set a “clear precedent” for other flags to be flown in the town, the BBC reported.

Quite! Their town, their rules.

Doesn’t stop the identity politics crowd having a massive hissy fit, though (does anything?):

An Oxford Pride spokesperson told Pink News: “It’s important to show the community that their town supports them regardless of sexuality and gender, unfortunately some of Abingdon town council don’t agree.

*rolls eyes*

“For the town council to refuse this emblem of inclusion and acceptance, indicates that there are some still in control who do not wish such virtues to be part of an English town.”

Because they didn’t fly a flag, they are all homophobes? Get over yourself!

    Is it possible that the council vote reflects the feelings of the town’s population?

    As for the Oxford Pride spokesperson, maybe they should learn not to get in peoples faces – they might not like the consequences.

      They never seem to do this in Muslim countries, do they?

    If it’s ‘inclusion and acceptance’ then they should be happy not to be prosecuted. There you go – accepted. You don’t get special treatment that’s what these people really want.

    My supposed elected representative (MP) told me he very nearly reported me to the police for a disparaging comment about ‘pride’ marches that I left on his Facebook page.

    While at his office, my Christian views were treated with considerable contempt and ridicule by both him and the person with him.

    Well done to anybody and everybody who stands up to the insidious and dangerous advance of the subversion agents that are militant LGBT activists. My MP is married and supposedly heterosexual, although such were his protestations that it is impossible at this stage to discern if he is completely brainwashed, a subversion agent himself, or a closet case (or any two or all three).
