Richmond Fed Reserve Flying RAINBOW,Homosexual flag

I feel much better now. The Federal Reserve in Ricmond has so much time on it’s hands that now that the national’s economy is in full swing  it can spend “special” time flying the Homosexual flag from its building. My heart swells with pride as our country makes sure there is inclusion for everyone. Hey Richmond, let’s not forget to honor and include everyone-fly Anthony Weiner’s briefs under your rainbow flag.

Del. Robert G. Marshall, R-Prince Williamis asking the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank to remove the rainbowflag flying below the American flag outside of the building, calling itspresence “a serious deficiency of judgment by your organization, one notlimited to social issues.”

In a letter to Richmond Fed President Jeffrey M. Lacker, Marshall says the homosexual behavior
“celebrated” by the bank “undermines the American economy” and is a class sixfelony in Virginia.

“The Richmond Fed’s endorsement of costly,anti-social, immoral behavior is rejected by 6,000 years of Western Religious and moral teaching,” writes Marshall, who is among the GeneralAssembly’s most conservative members and has long been outspoken on gay-rights issues. “You want the American people to trust your [judgment] in economic matters when your spokesperson celebrates an attack onpublic morals?”

Sally Green, the bank’s first vice president andchief operating officer, said earlier this week,       “We are flying the pride flag as an example of our commitment to the values of acceptance and inclusion.”

The flag is being flown at the request of PRISM, a Richmond Fed group representing gay, lesbian,bisexual and transgender employees and allies.

Its presence also prompted mention from Victoria Cobb, president of The Family Foundation in an email release on
Wednesday.

“Although the Federal Reserve is a private entity, it isdisappointing to see it participate in this celebration,” she said. “At The Family Foundation, we will simply choose to use this flag, like the view of Mr. Jefferson’s capitol, as motivation for the work that lies ahead.”
