Four Dem Members of Congress Sued for Displaying Pride Flag

Flag

Chris Sevier, a bigot who cannot accept marriage equality is the law of the land, sued four Democratic members of Congress for displaying Pride flags outside their D.C. offices.

Sevier served Reps. Susan Davis of San Diego, Alan Lowenthal of Long Beach, Calif., Don Beyer of Virginia, and Earl Blumenauer of Oregon with lawsuits this week. Sevier makes the ludicrous claim that homosexuality is a religion and the Pride flags violate the separation of church and state.

Long obsessed with LGBT people, Sevier made a name for himself by trying to marry his laptop to make a nonsensical point about marriage equality (same-sex marriage involves two consenting adults, while marrying hardware does not). Not only does the wingnut want marriage equality abolished, Sevier is asking a federal judge to overturn the Supreme Court ruling that legalized sodomy, and is advocating for the removal of Davis, Lowenthal, Beyer, and Blumenauer from office.

"The Defendants know or should know that they are advancing a threat to Democracy," reads part of Sevier's complaint, "to the point that they are unfit to hold office and should be removed for cause for representing an internalized danger to National Security interests."

Davis said she will not take down the flag while she defends herself from Sevier's suit. Lowenthal also stood by his decision to display the Pride flag, which was desecrated this year.

“The amazing response we’ve gotten (to the flag) has been overwhelmingly supportive,” Davis told The San Diego Union-Tribune.
