Gay pride flag flies over US Embassy in Tel Aviv


The U.S. Ambassador to Israel, Dan Shapiro, has hoisted the gay pride flag over the embassy building in Tel Aviv.  Todd Starnes grabbed the pic from the embassy’s Facebook page.


“Proudly flying the colors,” Ambassador Dan Shapiro wrote on the embassy’s Facebook page. He posted a photograph showing a rainbow colored flag flying alongside the American flag outside the embassy in Tel Aviv.

“For the first time in history, the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv has raised the Pride flag together with our American flag,” Shapiro wrote. “We are proud to join with the municipality of Tel Aviv-Yafo and its residents in celebrating LGBT Pride Week.”

This is not the first time the rainbow colors have flown over a U.S. embassy.  On May 15, it was flown over the Madrid embassy in Spain.  This is the new trend:  the values the Obama projects to the world as “American” are increasingly out of touch with Americans.

Yet, in our military, Bibles are banned, in the Air Force academy, Bible verses are erased from cadet white boards, while Christian bakers are sent for re-education for not bowing to gay marriage.  A president for all the people?  Not hardly.
