Gay Haters To Richmond’s Federal Reserve Bank: Take Down That Rainbow Flag!

Richmond’s Federal Reserve Bank, which just happens to be a PRIVATE banking business has decided at the request of thier LGBT employee group PRISM that for the entire month of June they will fly the Rainbow Flag outside the bank under the stars and stripes. 

Chief operating officer at the bank Sally Green has stated that: “We strongly support a diverse and inclusive culture at the Richmond Fed and have learned that it is important to value and embrace differences, both seen and unseen. We are flying the “Pride’ flag as an example of our commitment to the values of acceptance and inclusion.”

Yea for the Richmond’s Federal Reserve Bank!

But of course there are always the haters who say that this is taking “tolerance too far”
