Stories of bigotry and rage rarely end well. But in the case of stolen pride flags and a threat against a League City couple, the story ends with optimism and the upholding of core democratic values and constitutional principles.
Last week, The Daily News reported about the recurring theft of rainbow pride flags at a home in the affluent South Shore Harbour neighborhood. The culprit left behind a menacing note: “So help me God if you ever disrespect the American flag again, a whole lot more than your flag is getting taken. I don’t support gays, clearly, but I don’t give a damn if you keep it to yourself.”
