PatriotAction Network Del. Bob Marshall of Virginia wants Gay Pride Flag removed from Richmond Federal Reserve June 2, 2011 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Marshall to Richmond Fed: â€œTake Down That Flagâ€
Manassas, VA-Delegate Robert G. â€œBobâ€ Marshall sent the letter below to the President of the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank asking him to remove the rainbow flag representing homosexual rights which is currently flying under the American Flag in recognition of Gay Pride month outside the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank.
â€œI do not believe that a celebration of â€™gay prideâ€™ has anything to do with the mission of the Federal Reserve under the Federal Reserve Act passed by Congress,â€ said Marshall. â€This is a celebration of a behavior that is still a class six felony in Virginia. How can the American people trust the judgement of the Federal Reserve as an institution when its spokesperson celebrates an attack on public morals?â€ he asked. Marshall urged, â€œTake down that flag!â€
