It's a flag that demonstrates your sexual preference. What's next, a flag for those that like it doggie style? Should we put that on display too? The whole thing of displaying your preferences is perverted.

Agreed.

Ah. The doggy style flag floating majestically against a clear blue sky. Another for the missionary position folks. God Bless America. Feeling patriotic.

And just reading all the homophobic replies reinforces why we still need a Gay Pride celebration.

If the SecState disagrees, an ambassador can still choose to fly it. Might not be politically smart though.
No. The Ambassador may not act against the orders/direction of the SecState in this or other matters.

Thatís your problem if your mind instantly goes to sex when you see gay pride anything. Might want to look into that.

Whoever made these requests from the embassies need to be relieved of their duties.

Your first reason sounds justified. But your second reason ruined your whole post. Why are gays fruit to loops?

What did they ever do to you?
