Conservative Christian Group Posts Positive Article About Local Muslims and Members Flip Out, Forcing an Apology

The Family Policy Institute of Washington (state) is one of those anti-gay groups that thinks giving the LGBT community equal rights is tantamount to chaos.

Yesterday, Vacula went to City Hall to inquire about the decision. How come his banner wasn’t placed somewhere easily visible? Was there a reason?
