Why the Threat?
Honestly, I wouldn't have had anything to say about this run-of-the-mill article about the first gay pride parade under the first gay mayor of Providence. But this is something that I just had to point out, particularly when the focus of the entire report is on the "diversity" and openness of the city:
I guess businesses will have to learn after "slipping" what Monteiro considers to be disrespectful. I would guess that my opposition to gay marriage might put me in the "disrespectful" column, although it isn't in opposition to homosexuals that I hold that position.
Of course, the context in which Monteiro's statement was made to the Providence Journal might have made a huge difference, but as it is within the article it sticks out like a sinister threat.
