Contrary to flag etiquette, the rainbow flag was hoisted higher than the American flag. The campaign in Binghampton, New York, June 3, had an interesting twist. As we raised the American flag to begin our efforts in favor of traditional marriage, a group of people standing on the opposite side of the street in front of City Hall were about to do the same.
However, they were not raising old glory. Instead they were hoisting the very symbol of the opposition: a rainbow flag, with the approval of city mayor Matthew Ryan.
Breaking with flag etiquette
Those in attendance could not help notice that the rainbow flag -- an internationally recognized symbol of a group whose members openly promote unnatural vice -- was in a visibly higher position to that of the American flag. Besides being in direct conflict to flag etiquette, which clearly states that no flag or pennant may be placed above the [American] flag,
it was also a message to the citizens of Binghamton that the homosexual movement has conquered their city.
In a peaceful act of reparation organized by the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, faithful Catholics pray the rosary on the opposite side of the street, under the gaze
of a statue of Our Lady Fatima.
