FLY­ING OF FLAG DIS­AP­POINT­ING

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Opinion -

I WAS very dis­ap­pointed that the Town of Vic­to­ria Park, at a re­cent coun­cil meet­ing, de­cided to fly the rain­bow flag in sup­port of gay mar­riage.

My be­lief is that the de­ci­sion to vote one way or the other is a per­sonal de­ci­sion and coun­cils, AFL HQ, pri­vate or pub­lic com­pa­nies should not get in­volved.

Per­son­ally I have no strong views ei­ther way on the sub­ject (I have both gay and les­bian friends), but it seems to me that some peo­ple jump on the band­wagon be­cause it might seem "fash­ion­able".

If the right to have an abor­tion or pros­ti­tu­tion was on the agenda, would they fly a flag for those causes? I think not. LIBBY MAG­ILL Vic­to­ria Park
