    Do you support the petition of changing the US flag to the color rainbow?

    Now that gay marriages are legalized in all states, people are making a petition to change the US flag to rainbow colors. Do you think they are taking it too far or is it a good idea?

    Absolutely terrible idea.  Who thought that up?  Not everyone has to personally accept same-sex marriage even though it is the law.  We're talking about Freedom of Speech for Christians--changing the whole flag is a ridiculous idea.  I think this is some kind of joke question, is it not?

    Stupid, Stupid, Stupid!!!! The entire nation is not gay therefore this makes no sense. Now if the LGBTQ community would like to buy up a country or an island and create that flag for that country great! Until 100% of the country is gay though this makes no sense!

    I'm afraid I have to believe this is some sort of twisted joke.......or simply a means to garner more and more attention. 
    If a group seriously started an actual "petition" of this nature and is circulating it expecting to get anywhere, let's face it.....they are a bit crazy, ridiculous and let's not forget  STUPID.

    Never ever gonna happen...

    It's a nice story but it's bogus:

      and...that's actually a relief Keith.Thanks.I didn't think to check snopes!  U're a good watch dog!  I wouldn't even go so far as to say, "It's a nice story!!"  It's too ludicrous.....(Yes, I know.  Should have been my first clue!)

      My finely tuned B.S. detector went off a few days ago when this story was making the rounds on Facebook, and whenever that happens, Snopes is my first stop...haha

    They might as well.  Freedom of religion means nothing in this country anymore.

      Quite possible that you are correct.

    No.  The colors on the American Flag represent traditional things, such as the blood people shed so that we can have freedom. 
    The US represents many people, not just those who are GLBT.  It seems that everything is suddenly up for grabs this day, and personally, I am sick of it.

    If we lose all of our traditions, we lose ourselves.
