What is this thing with flags?

Honestly, does it matter?

Symbols are a way to communicate, in my opinion, flags use symbolism and positions of flags also are symbolic so...

While some people like normal crying bout them evil Republicans lowering a flag.

The shake head part here is that people need a license to the state to get married in the first place.

Woo Hoo!

Just like a person has to get the government permission to buy a gun.

People have to get the government permission to marry.

Of course lotso f people get divorced these days.

Hell lets take Missouri that has a rate of 7.3 in 2011 has a divorce rate of 4.

en.wikipedia.org...

So half of the people in that state get married get divorced.

Seems Missouri does have something to be somber about.

More court backlogs.

Yeah, but everybody's got one, so why would one be so much different from another?

They could paint it on the moon or bury it in a pile of #$%^, would there be any great difference, really?

(OK, I must admit, it would be kind of cool if they painted a flag, any flag, on the moon).

Presiding Commissioner Darrell Skiles filed a letter into the record ahead of the vote staking his opposition to “the U.S. high court’s [sic] stamp of approval of what God speaks of as an abomination.”


Because you always have to throw the "Abomination" card into play

What exactly are they mourning? what did they lose?

I don't even know where to start with this... shaking my head or laughing my ass off.

I'm going with the latter.

Below half-masst? Less than half staff? Gosh...they're really, really serious about this

They lost the ability to say no to gay coupled who wanted to get married.

For the love of God!

They cannot say NO anymore!

What more do you want of them?

First gays can get married, then ISIS. I'm surprised no-one else can see it!

That is the stupidest argument I've ever read.

First Gay marriage then Isis next my bunghole. Even Muslim's are terrified of Isis. They don't exactly come bearing peace and goodwill where their tentacles spread.

And as for the gay community, we're never ever going to support a group who takes great delight in throwing us off multistory building.

Think before you type my friend and Deny Ignorance!

It depends on what basis they are mourning the ruling. If it is mourning the loss of state's rights and the 10th amendment then I stand in solidarity with Missouri County.

So, if I want to get on this bus, I have to be offended that Missouri County got offended about the homosexual offensive? No thanks, let them be idiots on their own time.

After legalizing same sex marriage, gay people have now turned defensive due to public backlash after the constitution was finally correctly interpreted in their favor.

It appears everyone has their own interpretation these days, but exegesis (hehe), interpretation protects Missouri County's right to hang the flag how they wish. Of course its going to offend somebody, this is America!

Whats done is done, everyone should get on with their lives. Their grievances are with Big Church now, something the state should keep their noses out of.

Sarcasm eh? Still you must admit a strange association. Humor with shock value I assume.

Apologies.

Next time I'll take a class before I attempt it again.

So, they are having a temper tantrum but the removal of the Confederate flag in S.C. and now the T witter # to remove the flag from private property, etc., is not a tantrum. Okay...

I may not agree with it but they have the right to do so being on state property. Such as with the Confederate flag right?

The only 'rights' states have is to take down flags all together or ban them outright.

God forbid a state just lowers one.
