Crosswalks in Midtown Atlanta that were painted rainbow colors to support gay pride have cost taxpayers $196,000.

Indeed, an Atlanta intersection now features a four-way rainbow painted on.

The cost of the crosswalks amounted to “$196,000 to install and should last for about 10 years before repairs,” 11Alive reports.

Some Atlantans interviews by 11Alive about the crosswalk expressed disapproval. One said, “I say that money should be spent in schools. This is stuff that could be spent on educating young people instead of trying to make the city look pretty.”

“Let the young people make the city look pretty, because they’re artists and let the taxpayer money go to educating said young people.”

However, another resident said the cost doesn’t bother her, saying, “I support it. I think they’re beautiful and they’re a work of art.”

    Waste of taxpayer money to promote the agenda of one, fractional insignificant group. The rainbow was once a symbol of hope as seen in the sky during or after a rain. Today, it is nothing more than a symbol of the homosexual movements sexual preference – sodomy. I am all for adults doing what ever turns them on in the bedroom but must we spend taxpayer money on promoting symbols that distort the human procreative function?
