    Goes to show the group in opposition have very little knowledge of what the rainbow flag means if they used the word "provocative" to describe it.

    Excellent. Anything that pisses off bigots sounds like a good thing to me.

    I'm confused. Aren't xmas tree lights usually multicoloured (i.e. "rainbow")?

    Then again, compared to the theory that barcodes are the tool of the Devil this is downright pedestrian.

    Like it's not provocation to drive someone to suicide...

    Hopefully they will realize how evil their complaints are someday.

    Love and tolerance are provocative ideas, I guess...

    Too bad how they tried to dismiss it by saying it's for Mandela now, like they were caving in.

    They're really beautiful and they did a nice job. It's tragic to be in memory of another teen suicide.

    we could always just turn them off, and say it is a statement about the fact that the right wing political movement in italy is proving to be nothing more than a bunch of drunken sex perverts who promotes the trafficking of underage teen girls into prostitution to fulfil the sexual deviancies of prime minister burielsconi, and the lack of lighting is a statement about how they are turning italy into every stereotype that exists about italy.
