I think involving religion (meaning politics at the same time) is unecessary for pride events. Of course pride is political in its purpose, however these symbols make things more messy. And let's not even talk about the fact that in the name of religion we are witnessing genocide nowadays and these symbols should stay away imho. No negativity hould be present at pride.

Imagine, in a thread regarding Jews, saying religion is causing genocide "nowadays".

Yeah just like in the past of course, isn't it true? After second thought maybe I should not have brought it up here so apologies everyone.

They banned it because it looks like the Israeli flag, not because it's a Jewish flag. There's a difference. Their intention isn't to be anti-Jewish, it's to be anti-Israel.

Tbh, I think putting any religious symbol on the pride flag is kind of like putting a "POC pride/BLM ✊🏽" symbol on a Confederate flag. I know that's not a great analogy but it's the best I got atm :emma:

But if they're allowing a Christian and Muslim one they should just allow the Star of David one :shrug:

They should ban all of them, let's leave religion/countries out of it.

I agree either all in or all out.

So they ban the Israeli flag because they are violating human rights of the Palestinians, ok I understand, everyone should fight against the Israeli government and their actions.

But they don't ban the Palestinian flag even though Hamas, Fatah and the majority of the citizens in Gaza and the West Bank are violating the LGBTQ+ Palestinians rights, torturing them and killing them?:interestinga:

Are we fighting for gay rights or fighting for other causes?

If they want, they can march as Gays for Palestine, but not as a gay pride during the pride month, this is f-cking insulting for all the LGTBQ+ Palestinian victims.

The LGBTQ+ Palestinians are miserable and no one cares about them.

It's a separate march from the main DC Pride. So don't further the confusion.

It's subjective on which religion is "the least homophobic" because all Abrahamic Religions state same-sex relations is sin.

You're always going to have homophobia.

Again, the Star of David is more than a religious symbol.
