SILICON VALLEY, California (The Adobo Chronicles®) – From the Atlantic to the Pacific, from sea to shining sea, rainbow-colored filters are showing up on Facebook pages — all in the name of marriage equality.
Facebook profile photos are now sporting the colors of the gay flag. It all started soon after the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling Friday, declaring that marriage is a constitutional right for all — gay or straight. The popular social network now enables Facebook users to upload the Pride colors that serve as a filter to their profile photos.
But there is huge glitch.
It appears that that if Facebook detects that the user is a conservative, member of the religious right, or has posted anti gay-marriage comments in the past, a different filter is uploaded and it’s not anything close to the rainbow colors.
Among the first to notice the glitch was Texas Governor Greg Abbott who has criticized the Supreme Court ruling and is asking his constituents to face the ruling with civil disobedience.
Others with similar experience included Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Senator Ted Cruz.
