Gay pride-themed "Festivus" poles have popped up across the U.S.

While the religious right continues bemoaning the War on Christmas, atheist activist Chaz Stevens is poles apart in his seasonal mission. The Florida-based software designer and executive director of the two-man equal rights advocacy organization the Humanity Fund has launched a national campaign of “elite trolling”: erecting glittery, 6-foot-tall “rainbow gay pride”-decorated Festivus poles topped with disco balls at various city halls, public spaces, and capitol grounds across the country. One will even blare the iconically campy anthem “It’s Raining Men.” [link]
