Bent Over the Rainbow

Those wacky gay-haters are at it again. This time, the focus is on a lovely little bed and breakfast in Meade, Kansas called the Lakeway Hotel Bed & Breakfast Inn.

Seems J.R. and Robin Knight, the couple that runs the hotel, received a gift of a rainbow flag from their 12-year old son before he headed to California to stay with his grandparents. You know, because he will be "over the rainbow" and won't forget them - isn't that the sweetest thing? The Knights hung the flag outside their inn and the next thing you know, the local paper is making a huge deal out of this gay-friendly symbol. Someone even tried to cut it down.

So now there are people from all over sending rainbow flags to the Knights, and even helping support them by paying for rooms via credit card, even if they have no intention of travelling to Meade.

That takes some courage to stand up for your rights in the face of ridiculous ignorance. The worst part of stories like these is that the people who are doing the harassing are always the first to call themselves Christians. I know I'm not saying anything that hasn't been said a hundred and fifty bazilion times before, but it just makes me SO GOD DAMN MAD.... grr!
