OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Some Republican lawmakers say they’re upset about a man’s plan to put up a gay pride-themed, 6-foot-tall pole in the Capitol rotunda to celebrate the fictional holiday Festivus from the sitcom "Seinfeld."
Four GOP lawmakers issued a statement Thursday saying they perceived the display as an attack on Christianity.
A Florida man submitted a formal request to display the pole in the rotunda, and it was approved by the Office of Management and Enterprise Services.
