    I don't know why I'm bothering. I'll let you get back to fussing about the big bad gays ruining everything for everyone else.
    Whatever, bottomline if you can't see what they are saying. Then that's on you. Then of course their actions show it.....for the reality that it is.

    as far as the parade id have to know EXACTLY what the verbiage is about the rules

    from my understanding it seems that the banner that was banned was a banner that would just identify a gay veterans group, if that was it then IMO banning the sign is absolutely wrong.

    If its something else, well that would have to be presented to me and my decision might be different.

    Heya AJ. The Verbage was for No political activism.....by ANY!

    Sam Adams pulled out of Boston's parade, which takes place on Sunday, and Heineken yanked its support of the New York City parade, slated for Monday. Both parades are allowing gay groups to march but are banning signage about sexual orientation.....snip~

    Hey MMC

    so do you have any evidence of "activism" or am i mistaken about what i read in a different article?

    Educate me please with the info you may know . . .

    From my understanding its a Gay Veterans group, a sign saying that isnt activism in anyway or did they request approval for some other types of signs?

    There are no gun activists, abortion activists, immigrations activist. For or against to be in the parades.


    In February, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that he would not be marching in this year's parade in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Boston Mayor Martin Walsh has vowed not to attend the parade unless LGBT groups are allowed to march openly.

    They were told they could march..... but no signage.

    I wonder if groups participating in the parade will be carrying banners identifying units or hometowns or any other such things.

    I've been looking for a copy of the parade rules, but the South Boston parade's site is broken in places and the New York parade's site is just plain broken.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    The High School Marching Bands will have their Names of their High School on their Banners. Guess that would denote where they come from and what neighborhoods.

    In seriousness, this is how things are supposed to work in a republic (as opposed to an authoritarian government). Solutions are less imposed by law and more emergent from community. Leadership and change are as much the result of civilian participation as political mandate.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Just out of curiosity, if a military unit wanted to march with full honors would you say the Military has plenty of other days, Armed Forces Day, 4th of July, etc- so it's a St. Patrick's parade and if they want to march they should be in civilian clothes with nothing to denote who they are and what they stand for?
    Anyone else throwing their political agenda in everyone's face?

    Well good. Why should families and children - anyone for that matter be subjected to gays pushing outlandish behavior in public.


    DeBlasio and "Panti Bliss"


    Should these children be subjected to that? I say no.

    What really gets me is that, with respect to Boston, this isn't just a group of random gay folks who want to march for the sake of marching. If they were I'd still be fine with it, but this is a group of gay veterans who want to identify themselves as gay while marching in a parade organized by a veteran's group.
    Why is the fact that they are gay important enough to amrch with banners about it? What are they trying to accomplish with that?
