BREAKING NEWS: Rainbow flag will fly high in Hillcrest (CA)
http://sdgln.com ^ | 05/16/2012 | BEN CARTWRIGHT

Posted on 05/16/2012 10:17:17 AM PDT by massmike

Very soon, San Diego's LGBT community will see a colorful symbol of their pride flying high above the Hillcrest neighborhood.

Today, the City Council voted 7-0 to approve a proposal by the Hillcrest Business Association (HBA) to install a 65-foot flagpole in the median on Normal Street where it intersects with University Avenue.

Nicholas Moade, owner of Rich's and a donor to the flag project, urged the City Council to pass Item 333. "This flag symbolized tolerance and diversity," Moade said. "As long as LGBT youth are being bullied ... it is important to fly this flag as a beacon of hope."

After the council voted, applause erupted in the room. Many community members left excited about the installation of the project, which is expected to be in place in time for the annual San Diego LGBT Pride celebration, taking place July 20-22.

Hillcrest was ALWAYS the FAG District of San Diego. Now Obama’s Navy will have a Beacon to go to.

Rainbows are cool....

Revelation 10:1-3
And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.

Revelation 14:15-16
And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

Flee from sin. Seek ye the Lord, while He may be found...

What on earth are young mothers supposed to say when they drive by that Gay Pride Flag and their babies ask them what they rainbow flag is all about?

both the mothers will be traumatized by that question and the babies will be shocked when they hear the answer.

Too much therapy will be needed.

I'd like to ask Moade what flag would he suggest be flown for someone like me, who was bullied in Jr. High and High School, and not a homosexual??? What flag should be flown for kids who are "NORMAL"????

Answer: "The rainbow is a creation of God. The rainbow flag symbolizes God's promise not to destroy the Earth by flood"!

Does this work???

“The rainbow is a creation of God. The rainbow flag symbolizes God’s promise not to destroy the Earth by flood!”

But, when those babies enter kindergarten, the teacher in accordance to California law will have to explain to them the meaning of the Rainbow Gay Pride Flag and the kids will learn to distrust their mothers.

AND

“....Normal Street...” WTF?

We have a "Normal Avenue" near here. It runs by what is now called Montclair State University. I think it used to be called Montclair State Teachers' College but its first name was The New Jersey State Normal School at Montclair.

Normal School used to be the common way to refer to teachers' colleges, and so my guess is that this particular "Normal Street" also ran by a teachers' college.

I think it was only in the 1970s that the gays starting taking the area over.

The Normal Street designation is for the normal school, which eventually morphed into San Diego State University. Before the institution relocated to the mesa overlooking U.S. Hwy. 80, it must have been somewhere along the route of Normal Street.

I want to thank the “I’m Queer and in your face” and their bend over backers!

Now if/when we visit San Diego, we will know what shopping area to avoid with that 65’ flag pole on AbbiNormal Street.

Normal, Illinois, got its name from a normal school, now Illinois State University.

Karen Hughes wrote a book which alluded to Normal, IL, in its title: Ten Minutes from Normal. It was inspired by something someone said on a trip, either campaign or presidential, that they were 10 minutes from Normal.

Right now (as of today) we are under His grace but it could end at any moment and then comes His prophetic wrath. So it is a given. Seems like the demons are very busy seeking as many souls they can devour. And America seems to be their last hooray as too many are taken in by fear.

Notice the chain - a chain of bondage/evil and it’s circle that has no end out of it. The chain has to be broken for those caught up in sexual perversion.

We really need to take back the rainbow. Rainbows are a wonderful creation of God and we should take back the usage.

I don't know how, but it should be done.

If you want to put a rainbow somewhere you should do it. To hell what other people think. If anyone gives you grief you patiently tell them that that you are not gay and that it is none of their business anyway.

I refuse to concede anything to homosexuals....well, except for the colors pink and lavender.

Two options:

One: Teach our children the truth, and make sure they attend Bible school at Church.

Two: Either homeschool or private school.

Or, a third option is to make sure to do both the above.

Bumper stickers of the Rainbow with the words, “God’s Creation” should do the trick.

We have the very same thing in Chico, CA. What is now known as Cal State U, Chico, was at first a Normal School. It was located on, among other streets, Normal Avenue.
