    It was probably all the narrow minded bible thumping screwballs from remote, rural North Carolina that got all bent out of shape over that lifeguard's rainbow flag.icon_cool.gif

    God that guy is annoying. Lifeguard towers fly yellow, red, green and yellow with black flags according to water conditions. Let the lifeguard wear a rainbow t-shirt or whatever to show his pride. There should be no other flag up there to confuse the people he's supposed to be keeping safe. This is just basic common sense for a lifeguard. I'd bet money he was made to take the flag down by his supervisor, not because of bigotry but because it's a violation of safety regulations.

    I tend to agree. Most US lifeguard towers fly flags that are color-coded to signal water conditions. The objections to this may have also had anti-gay sentiments, but if that station normally flies water condition flags to inform the swimmers (if apparently was in fact also flying a yellow Caution flag), then that's all that should be flying. No confusing personal messages permitted, of any kind.
