Hanging on both sides of the courthouse as you drive downtown are the huge obnoxious banners for a Shenandoah valley gay pride event. I don't know the criteria for placing banners on the courthouse property but this offends me to no end. I have heard many people reiterate that this is extremely offensive to them and they resent that they have to be exposed to this kind of material on their own city property. While this issue disturbs and offends me I respect the right of people to organize and execute this event however the promotion of this on city property is dead wrong. Leaving it up offends many people, removing it only means that a private entity has to seek conventional means to promote their event. The city would not allow other sexually themed events to hang on court square, there should not be an exception for this. It's trash and hurts the city.

My 'pride' is my Roman Catholic, Western, ancestral traditions which promote monogamy, marital fidelity, chastity, virginity, piety, and the common good. Though a sinner, I take no pride in Western local mockery of these traditions. Keep your mind/body/spirit pollution off of public property, please! There are young eyes, minds, hearts, and souls on City streets!

McConnell in "Free Exercise As the Framers Understood It"; The Bill of RIghts: Original Meaning and Current Understanding.
