Equality Texas Delivers Gay Pride Flag To Hateful Anti-Muslim Lawmaker’s Office

In case you missed it, state Rep. Molly White posted a hateful, Islamophobic rant on her Facebook page this morning to mark Muslim lobbying day at the Capitol. Here’s what the Republican from Belton wrote:

“Today is Texas Muslim Capital day (sic) in Austin. The House is in recess until Monday. Most Members including myself are back in District. I did leave an Israeli flag on the reception desk in my office with instructions to staff to ask representatives from the Muslim community to renounce Islamic terrorist groups and publicly announce allegiance to America and our laws. We will see how long they stay in my office.”

In a show of solidarity with religious minorities, Equality Texas responded to White’s rant by delivering a gay Pride flag to her office:

Equality Texas @EqualityTexas
There are many flags that celebrate the diversity and unity of TX. We decided to help build Rep White's collection.

I wonder if White will fly the flag when LGBT advocates visit her office during the group’s Faith Advocacy Day in February. Maybe she’ll put up a straight pride flag instead and demand that visitors pledge allegiance to the Texas GOP plank endorsing “reparative therapy.”
