    We're at a point where a gay could rob a bank and his defense would be that he/she is gay and that would be enough to let the person walk.... Hell look at the New Black Panthers walking away from threatening voters with baseball bats back in 2008 - they walked...

    The double standards in society are doing nothing more than promoting obnoxious and sometimes violent behavior by minority groups - gays included. Of course anyone who questions their actions is deemed a "homophobe" "racist" or misogynist..... In their sick twisted minds if you judge them and their actions you automatically hate them or "feel superior (as the definition of racism implies)"

    Being different doesn't give minorities the right to crash parties or parades for political reasons.

    Gays have their own pride parade, so how would they feel if a bunch of evangelists crashed their parade - I suppose they would be asked to leave if they intended to promote religious and political messages. however this is exactly what the gays are trying to do to the St. Patty's day parade.

    IMO, if these clowns show up spewing political nonsense and attempting to take over the parade they will be escorted away swiftly, and if they get obnoxious enough they will likely get their asses kicked.

    There is an old saying; "get in where you fit in" - gay activists and their politics don't "fit in" at an Irish parade....

    Also, it's funny how they chose the Irish parade.... Why not a New Black Panther parade or a Muslim parade or protest..... Oh that's right because those groups will use extreme violence to keep you away from their celebrations....
    This post is AWESOME!!!!
    the part in read is all that needed posted

    but the rest tells people all they need to know about views that are topically uneducated, bigoted and dishonest.

    Thank you for finally admitting the truth

    So were the gays pushing a POLITICAL agenda by marching? Got ANY proof of that?

    As far as knowing where you fit in... how much you wanna bet a nickle there are gay Irish folks in this country- and few over in the Mother Country?

    All kinds of non Irish folks march in these parades, you seem intent on painting all gays as militants.

    It would be like me saying all folks from Chicago are like you.

    I was thinking the same thing, does anyone even drink Sam Adams and Heineken any more? Last time I saw a someone order a Heineken I think it was sitting on a table next to a Barttles & James wine cooler back in 1983.

    Businesses don't make moves like this due to moral reasons. They do it as as calculated move to target a different audience. This was a desperate move by two beer companies who have lost a ton of market share. Sam Adams is basically going out of business.

    But people aren't allowed to have religious views anymore. Didn't you get the memo on that?

    I never saw who actually made the policy about banning gays. I mean the mayor pulled out even. Who actually in charge?

I can practice my right to call you out on your hypocrisy just like you're exercising your right to voice your support for LGBT issues.

    There, done, this is America. I have no issue with what Sam Adams did, nor I hope they have any issue with my decision to stop drinking their beer.

    My guess is that this recent trend of having corporations voice their support or contempt for political issues will fade rather quickly.


    Tim-
    Stop drinking a beer because they sort-of support gays = OK

    Stop eating at Chik-fil-A because they don't = Pushing your America-ruining agenda.

    Got it.

    They're not banned from marching, they're banned from carrying a sign like every other group. From the source:

    Both parades are allowing gay groups to march but are banning signage about sexual orientation.

    Gay rights activists praised Heineken's decision.

    "Heineken sent the right message to LGBT youth, customers and employees who simply want to be part of the celebration," Sarah Kate Ellis, president of gay rights group GLAAD, said in a statement.

    A Heineken representative told CNBC on Friday: "We believe in equality for all. We are no longer a sponsor of Monday's parade."

    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.....snip~

    Beer makers drop out of St. Patrick's parades that ban openly gay marchers

    Seems all it took.....was a Facebook Page of Bars saying they would no longer Serve Sam Adams beer if they didn't pull their support for this St Patty's Day Parade. What are your thoughts upon the matter? Right thing to do or not?
    I'd say it is up to each beer manufacture. Their choice. I'm not sure if I was head of any commercial firm if I would want to get that firm involved in politics. It could only hurt sales from one or the other group. But I think the loss of any sales or a few bars would really hurt either of these beer manufactures. It could lead to a boom in sales from the opposite group like the gay boycott of Chik Filet, they sold more chicken than ever once those who supported gay rights decided to boycott them. The gay boycott was good business to them and now that controversy is in the past.

    I say each should abide by their own conscious, nothing more, nothing less.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
