Unable to grumpily take ball and go home, Missouri county uses flags for childish marriage equality protest

by Jeremy Hooper

When it comes to making us look even better in the wake of victory, Dent County, Missouri just did the victorious equality movement a solid:

The Dent County Commission voted unanimously Monday to observe one year of "mourning” over the Supreme Court’s June 26 decision that gay couples have the constitutional right to marriage.

The observance will come in the form of lowering the flags at the Dent County Courthouse and Judicial Building to below half-staff on the 26th day of the month from July 2015 to June 2016.

So move over, whatever thing for which Dent County was most famous before this year. For at least the next few decades, this will be the reputation pockmark that makes every prior disaster seem like a, well—dent.
