There’s religious adherence to the Pride flag during Pride Month, that most holy month.

In Spokane, Washington, they decided to paint a crosswalk with the Pride Progress flag.

You might think there would be a problem painting a crosswalk with Pride Progress flags because people walk and drive over it. It is a crosswalk.

It turns out there was a group of three teenagers who were on Lime electric scooters doing wheelies on the Pride Progress flag and then got caught on tape doing that.

They were arrested and charged with first-degree malicious mischief. They could go to jail because they did wheelies on the Pride Progress flag.

It was later reported they were also doing wheelies in other areas of town as well. 

But — Thou Must Not Have Any Other Gods Besides The Pride Progress Flag. This religion must never, ever be faced with dissent.

Malicious mischief?

Two of the three teens were underage, and they’ve not been named. So apparently, Lime is now announcing it will be implementing a no-go zone around that crosswalk, which means a scooter driven over the mural will be shut down remotely.

Everyone has to tiptoe right around the Pride Progress flag that’s on the ground.

I’m really looking forward to Pride Month now, including people putting Pride Progress flags on all the seats on airplanes. If you sit on one of those seats, you’ll go to jail in a flash. That would be just great. Can’t wait.

The situation in Spokane is like the child’s game “The Floor Is Lava,” except the floor is the Pride Progress flag. Don’t walk on it. Don’t do it. If you do, you will be punished.

A press release from the city of Spokane stated, “Officers observed widespread damage as black scuff marks consistent with scooter wheels were observed across the entirety of the mural. The area is clearly marked to keep traffic away as it was just re-painted to repair previous damage.”

Attached to the [press] release were two photos demonstrating the extent of the damage, both of which showed faint black marks on the street painting consistent with thin tire marks,” The Publica reported. “The alleged vandalism, which was claimed by many to be motivated by homophobia, resulted in an outpouring of condemnation from Spokane’s LGBT community and those purporting to be LGBT allies.

A local journalist complained he had seen other teenagers running over the pride mural crosswalk while he was reporting. He state, “A group of five to six kids just started doing donuts and creating skid marks on the Pride Mural.” He said they were also doing wheelies.

As we all know, there are no skid marks anywhere in America on roads. None.

If you don’t want people to drive on some image, don’t put it on the road. It feels like you’re daring people.

This is not the first time this has happened. In February, a 19-year-old was arrested after performing burnouts with his truck on a Pride crosswalk in Delray Beach, Florida. He was charged with felony criminal mischief.

This is so tiresome. Not to mention the fact that the media ignore cases where pro-life centers get burned down.

But step on a Pride Progress flag on the sidewalk and they’ll arrest you.
