It's been suggested that "dildos of terror" mistake is the network's "most embarrassing flub ever," but now, the man behind the flag has come forward, saying he intentionally designed the piece as an ISIS parody.
"The brutalization and murder of individuals simply for holding differing beliefs, or for being of an alternate sexuality, is this organization’s hallmark and something that should be at the top of the world’s conscience," he said in the statement, which was cited by The Mirror and Metro UK. "The victimization of an individual because of their sexuality, regarding the person as nothing more than a sex object, is highlighted in this work by the use of the dildo motif."
A full image of the flag, which Coombs calls "Dildosis," that appeared at London Pride can be seen below:
The Artist Behind The Gay Pride Flag Mistaken For ISIS Speaks Out
This is a little older story but bears posting. It is very funny and also makes a good point. It was the only such flag pointing out that ISIS is anti-gay, which is routinely ignored by the militant homosexual lobby. They are quick to make Christians out to be anti-gay, but Muslims and Jews usually get a pass.
