If you apply the rules universally, there is no valid reason any person or group can claim discrimination.
Why would a group think it would be an appropriate action to hijack a parade and push for a lifestyle that is sinful and anti-Christian? Why can't St. Patrick's Day be about Saint Patrick and not a venue for pushing politics?
Banning them was very much appropriate. There is a time and a place, and the St. Patty's Day parade is not the time nor the place to have gay rights and rainbow flags waving around and is almost an insult to those who celebrate Saint Patrick's Day in a more traditional sense.

The St. Patricks day parade isn't a "gay pride parade" and furthermore gays were NOT BANNED - they were banned from promoting their fringe ideas via effigy and signage.
The St. Patricks day parade is not a ****ing protest!
