Marshall Middle School in Minnesota school become a center of controversy because of a LGBTQIA pride flag hanging in its cafeteria, and a family flag is banned.
For anyone who follows the persistent and ongoing controversy constantly being created by the LGBTQIA community, you know it is not at all about ‘inclusion’ it is about ‘exclusion’. Who is being excluded? The biblical family model of a dad, a mom and a child. What, you have not heard of the LGBTQIA?

Yes, the alphabet soup known as the queer community is expanding, and soon they will be adding the ‘P’ for pedophile. But in the meantime, flags are being hung in elementary and middle schools across America as the battle for our nation’s soul rages. The argument goes that the traditional family is ‘triggering’ for members of the LGBTQIA community, and makes them feel bad. So all references to it have to be removed, that’s the real argument at stake here. For those of you who think this can never happen, maybe a quick visit to our Non-Women Who Menstruate section will help you to see the truth a little more clearly.
Do you know who marches under a banner? People going to war, that’s who. That’s why you see the LGBTQIA Pride Flag at every rally as they march, they are waging war against the traditional family in general, and against God and the Bible in particular. The only thing that stands in their way of victory is the Church, who happens to be lukewarm and sleeping right now. Wanna guess who’s going to win?
Marshall Middle school hangs LGBTQIA flag in cafeteria, bans flag of traditional family
FROM LIFE SITE NEWS: Marshall Middle School in Marshall, Minnesota, serves 679 students in grades 5 to 8. The rainbow pride flag, which is used to represent people who have chosen a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender lifestyle, hangs in the school’s cafeteria alongside the United States flag and a variety of international flags.
A student-circulated petition opposing the LGBTQIA flag and requests to display other flags offered by the school population were not welcomed by the administration.
Thomas More Society Special Counsel Erick Kaardal, who has been retained to represent a group of Marshall residents, commented on the situation. “At the very least, it’s divisive and insensitive. It makes it appear that the school supports one group’s beliefs at the expense of others.” Kaardal added that when students expressed their concern to teachers and administrators over the lifestyle that the flag promotes, they were bullied.
“Whether this was an inappropriate decision by a staff member or a deliberate violation of students’ rights, this is a serious matter,” Kaardal remarked. “It is incumbent upon school officials to write and enforce rules that prevent the public school from being turned into a forum for the display of a single ideology. As members of the academic community, these administrators should understand that you cannot trample on the right to free speech.”
Kaardal stated that the school’s denial of other flags, such as the historical American Gadsden (Don’t Tread on Me) flag and a banner depicting a heterosexual family, shows that officials are imposing ideological beliefs on students.
“Ironically, of course, the rainbow flag is most famous for being involved in protest, but now those advocating that symbol of protest will not tolerate the expression of opposing ideas,” Kaardal observed.
Whether the school’s controversial display of the LGBTQIA pride flag will result in a federal lawsuit remains to be seen, and will depend on how the Marshall School Board responds to the request for its written policies.
“School buildings are funded by public tax dollars,” explained Kaardal. “A ‘viewpoint neutral’ policy toward flags and other displays will assure taxpayers that their money does not go to promote symbols of beliefs they may not agree with. If a federal lawsuit is needed to make this happen, we are equipped to pursue that action.”
