Richmond Fed Pisses Off the Virginia Good Old Boys With Gay Flag

Yes, you read that right. Richmond Fed is flying the rainbow banner in honor of National LGBT month and some do-gooders - including those within the Bank's own ranks - are taking issue with this public display of support for sodomy, interior decorating and spoiled pets.
Deep in the confederate stronghold of Richmond, Virginia, there’s something mighty queer afoot: The Federal Reserve building in Richmond has a homosexual rainbow flag fluttering beneath the American flag. Why? Apparently it’s National Gay and Lesbian and BLT Month, and if President Obama wasn’t already minority enough, he is also promoting this celebration of the degenerate “gay lifestyle.” If that rainbow flag continues flying all month, as planned, up to 47% of straight white Virginians might “turn gay” just by being exposed to the colorful banner.
Wonkette shares the following article from ultra-Christian OneNewsNow:
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.”
Said one genius Wonkette commenter "If that Christian is so concerned with morality then why is he working for the Federal Reserve?" zing!
Richmond Fed #2 Sally Green told Richmond.com that the Bank chose to fly the flag because they have "learned it is important to value and embrace differences -- both seen and unseen. We are flying the 'Pride' flag as an example of our commitment to values of acceptance and inclusion."
Is that it? I thought it was just 'cuz gay people tend to have a lot of disposable income and the Fed gets off on money velocity. Shows how misinformed I am.
I say good for them, way to stick it to the man. Oh wait...
