A new billboard went up in Times Square and it has people talking. In big black letters, the sign proclaims, "NO GAYS ALLOWED."


If the sign seems shocking, that is the point! Under the larger letters, a message reads "STOP Alliance Defending Freedom. Learn more at NoGays.org."

The goal is to shine a spotlight on the conservative Christian legal group Alliance Defending Freedom, or ADF which the Southern Poverty Law Center describes as a hate group against the LGBTQ community.

The ADF encourages businesses to deny service to LGBTQ people and criminalize homosexuality. If that seems ridiculous in this day and age, consider a hardware store in Tennessee, Amyx Hardware & Roofing Supplies in Grainger County, which hung a "No Gays Allowed" sign in their front window.

A spokesperson for Citizens for Transparency, Caleb Cade, told NBC News:

The nogaysallowed.org also has an informational video.

But this issue has many passionate supporters who often know what it's like to care for someone who would have benefited from the practice. They told their stories after Redditor Random2328 asked the online community,

"What are your thoughts on medically assisted death?"

Privilege is discussed quite a bit these days, and for good reason. So many people are able to live life longer, more peacefully, and freely than others thanks to factors they had no control over.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

Redditor u/Xanduh wanted everyone to chat about legal life fails by asking:

What do you wish was illegal?

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.

Kindness always gives you a little thump to your heart that nothing else can truly provide. A rush of knowing you've made someone's day better. And you may change the trajectory of that person's life because of it.
