Missouri County will lower flag for one-year to mourn the same-sex marriage ruling


A Republican-filled county commission in Missouri voted 3-0 to lower the American flag to half-staff on the 26th of the month for an entire year of “mourning” after the Supreme Court’s gay marriage decision.

The flag will begin flying half-staff at the Dent County Courthouse and Judicial Building starting this month, ending in June of 2016.

In a letter filed into the record ahead of the vote, presiding Commissioner Darrell Skiles wrote that “the U.S. high court’s [sic] stamp of approval of what God speaks of as an abomination.”

Skiles continued, saying that “all who see these flags at this lowered position be reminded of this despicable Supreme Court travesty” and wrote this is reason enough to support his plan.
