    Fag?



    Oh, sweetheart, you're just so precious. Did you step out of the 80s when nobody was looking?

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

    Plenty of Catholics, especially American Catholics, support same sex rights. "Religion" as a whole isn't at odd with homosexuality. Only some religions and some religious are. There is basically nothing that "religion" as a whole does.

    Really, children hate fun parades. They want to watch social and political activism.

    In short, of course they should not allow political groups to use the parade.
    How exactly is opposing the exclusion of gays political, but the excluding in the first place is not political? If you don't want the event to be use to promote an agenda, then it shouldn't have been excluding people in the first place.

    The implication being that a group of homosexuals proclaiming what they are is activism. Other groups, meanwhile, aren't condemned to activism by their very existence. That's a pretty messed up double standard.

    A parade being thrown by a veteran's group. If anybody has a right to participate it would be veterans, and I see no reason why identifying themselves as gay should cause anybody any problems.

    I've seen parades. I've seen banners in parades, the sort that are long and rectangular and require 2 people to carry them. I'd be fine with a banner like that identifying a gay vet's group and I can't imagine why such a banner would cause a problem.

    3.)They were told they could march..... but no signage.
    1.) i understand this
    2.) i knew this also thanks
    3.) so you know as much as me, theres no proof of "ACTIVISM" and currently it seems they are being discriminated against and not allowed signage while others are

    thanks MMC, ill keep reading other stuff to because currently it seems theres no activism present but i could be wrong if evidence surfaces

    Who's competing with them? If a group representing the LGBT Community walks behind a marching band, so what? It's not a race. They're not taking someone else's place. They just want a sign identifying their group like all the other groups marching.

    First, my understanding is that Lent isn't just about giving something up and that often it's about taking something on. Second, I am pretty sure that you are overgeneralizing about what "the Irish" do...here, Irish-Americans.

    Thank you for your explanation, though.

    So assume for a second that they're not in drag. They just want to march down the street dressed normally carrying one sign that identifies them. They're not bringing out the gay orgy float.
