Pride Flags Flying in Downtown Stroudsburg for the First Time

STROUDSBURG, Pa. - -It's a first on the streets of downtown Stroudsburg. LGBTQ Pride flags were put up for Pride Month.

Rainbow flags line the 700 block of Main Street and down to the courthouse.

"It says a lot. It would make me feel welcomed. I think that's important," Jan Hoffman said.

"It's very positive because it's spreading a message to people that might have different views," Sera Heil said.

"I have no issue with it. I like people to express their feelings. They have all rights to. Everybody is human at the end of the day," Jahrod Amoroso said.

Novus Care Services paid for roughly 25 flags to be flown here in downtown Stroudsburg. It's an owned and operated LGBT company.

Borough council and the mayor's office unanimously approved the decision to fly the rainbow flags.

Mayor Tarah Probst said she wasn't worried at all about the flags being a potentially controversial issue.

"Whoever is upset about it, I'm sorry that they're offended, but truthfully it's all good and it's a positive thing," Mayor Probst said.

"It's a wonderful way to welcome them to the university and the town. It's cool and we accept you. I think it's accepting and I think it's important to people to feel accepted," Hoffman said.

The pride flags will be on display through the rest of the month.

    Rom 1:26-27
    26For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural,27and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error.
    Lev 20:13
    13If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death; their blood is upon them.
    I guess with should put up flags to promote other sins also…..

    Novus Care Services: A company that exists solely due to the sexually immoral lifestyles of people. (AIDS, HIV, STD’s) No gays and promiscuity = No Novus.

    Funny how that all works out.

    Let’s see how long this comment stays up.

    The sign that a town is really struggling to get people in to live, shop, etc.

    Locals know it’s a crime-ridden dump, so let’s promote it to the gays because they usually have money and they’re looking for a safe space.

    San Francisco come to mind anyone?
