Anti-gay activists oppose rainbow flag at Tennessee University

A rainbow flag with stripes and stars has created a controversy at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro.

News Channel 5 reports:

The flag is part of a display put together by MT Lambda, MTSU's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans gender student organization. Complaints about the flag, fashioned to resemble the American flag, came into a dean's office at the University three days after the group installed the display. "It's really caught us by surprise that this flag has caused so much controversy, because in essence it's not an American flag, it's symbolic of that," explained Joshua Rigsby, the group's president.
