I don’t know a lot of the backstory, but it’s pretty self explanatory. This business in Homewood, Alabama got the threatening note (above) about their Pride flag display.
This was their response;
If you feel called by your faith to spread the word of God through fear mongering and intimidation, your belief system is flawed, it is fragile, and it is dangerous.
This flag is a peaceful symbol of freedom for the oppressed. It does not threaten your identity, or your safety. And yet, because of its mere existence, you’ve threatened ours.
Our flag comes down at the end of June anyway, but to make our feelings clear—the message of love will not be silenced by your hate.
Still Proud in Homewood
