LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A Florida man applied on Monday afternoon to place a “Gay Pride Festivus Pole” at the state Capitol grounds in Little Rock.
Executive Director for the Humanity Fund Chaz Stevens said he sent in an Arkansas Secretary of State Temporary Display application around 1 p.m. on Monday.
Sen. Bart Hester, R-Cave Springs, told Fox16, “He has the right to ask. The legislature approved the 10 Commandments as a historical document. Look at our state and national Capitol. They are covered in scripture and the 10 Commandments. I fail to see a gay pole as having any historical significance in the founding of our state or nation.”
