Pride flag replaces military flags at Fort Wayne VA hospital
wane.com ^ | June 13, 2018

Posted on 06/13/2018 11:20:12 AM PDT by lowbridge

The five flag poles that line the entrance sidewalk to the VA Northern Indiana Health Care System at 2121 Lake Ave. typically fly flags of the country's five branches of military:  Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard.

On Tuesday, through, those flags were taken down and just one was flown in their place: an LGBT pride flag.

The VA Northern Indiana Healthcare System issued the following statement:

"Logistically, we could not add a flag without removing a flag from the poles outside our VA. Rather than single out one military branch's flag to be temporarily replaced with the LGBT flag, we chose to remove all of them for one day in order to show our dedication to serving all Veterans equally."

If God doesn’t punish this country, he owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.

Hmmm. So, once again the 2-4% of the population gets it’s way. Pretty sad.

While I hate it, let it be a message to the sane people in society that evil is marching at us and prepared to destroy us.

You mean the flag that displays God’s promise to the world not to destroy it?

I really wonder if they had proper clearance to do this. Nothing like p***ing off the military.

Why not raise the flag of Black Power to celebrate more social diversity....?

to serving all Veterans equally.

Then there was no need to replace the flags, as you limited it to just those who identify with Gay Pride, and thus failed in your attempt to serve all veterans.

I can’t wait for Trump to take office and put an end to all this nonsense. Oh, wait. Never mind.

I’m not generally in favor of flag burning, but I’d burn that flag in a heartbeat.

It’s a disgrace.

Fire whoever is running that VA facility.

Our military doesn’t exist, fight and die to turn the nation into Cornholistan.
