Parents at a school in Alabama are demanding the removal of a rainbow flag which is currently waving in one of the classes as a sign of acceptance and tolerance. The flag, at Auburn High School in Alabama, was made by members of a school club last week and put on display in a teacher’s classroom. But angry parents have demanded that the symbol be torn down signing an online petition which compared a rainbow flag to celebration of racism and slavery demanding to put the confederate flag nearby. They say that the flag makes students feel uncomfortable if their parents don’t support LGBT. “[We] would like for you to consider the uproar and chaos that would ensue were a teacher to hang for example a Confederate, Christian, or Heterosexual Flag in their classroom. There would likely be protests, emails from teachers, and threatening of lawsuits from parents with differing viewpoints.[We] ask that the Pride Flag be removed from Auburn High School in order to preserve a welcoming, beneficial, and unbiased learning environment for students from all political backgrounds attending Auburn High School,” the petition read. The supporters of the rainbow flag have already signed the petition of their own asking to protect it.
