Are people in the LGBT community who live in the U.S. not American? Are they living in their own made up country?

"We both feel that way very passionately, but when it comes to the American flagpole, and American embassies, and capitals around the world, one American flag flies," the vice president added.


Wow, I actually totally agree with Pence on this. The LGBTQ community feels the US should be a leader and fly the rainbow flag along with the American flag at US Embassies. They feel by not flying the flag the US government is not supportive and not leading the way.

Have I entered into the twilight zone? Is this what people really think these days? If so then I want a flag with my family flying next to the American flag. Why not?

I feel sad for kids today. I remember growing up and it didn't matter who you were, the American flag was a source of pride. It united all of us. Have we become too fractured? Sad times.

Of course not...The homos are covered under the red, white and blue just like the rest of us...They are no more special than anyone else and don't need nor deserve special recognition...

I think we all have questions and queries, it's part of the human condition you see.

Or do you assume that people in other nations are not people just like yourself?

none of which has to do with the fact we have rules for our embassies.
rules which include flying only the usa flag.

and if you must know, as this is the interwebs; i really have no idea if you are an actual person.

also has nothing to do with our embassies rules.

flags would be an odd thing to be afraid of

Which is exactly the point.

But it's not the flag that's of real concern to those that refuse to see it fly, but what it represents.

The wind of change is what Trump and ilk fear.

There is no clear cut answer to this. For one thing we need to consider the fact that not every country agrees with our choices in regards to sexual freedom, I mean what would happen if we flew a flag like this at an embassy anywhere in the middle East? The other factor would be that it isn't fair to restrict people's freedoms but it also isn't fair to force your opinions on those whom may not agree and when we are talking about something like this that ends up representing the US populace as whole is it right to force this on those Americans that are deeply religous? We have to have balance and I don't see how you can make an arguement to remove all traces of religion from governmental institutions, money, and things like modifying the pledge of allegiance while at the same time arguing for forcing something like sexual orientation into those same institutions. It represents far more than one would think. We need to be fair to all while also being diplomatic in our actions.
