    I see this as eventually causing a backlash. I see this as a reason that may cause more Catholic democrats to start voting Republican.
    Not if those Catholic Democrats following the teachings of Jesus Christ and their pope.

    Again, this is where I think the committee made the mistake. They should have allowed the banner with the name of the group free of any activist messaging. Just like they do with the rest of the participants. If their concern was truly that they didn't want the acitivism in the parade. It would have put the issue on the group and force them to prove that their motivation was to participate, not to make a statement.

    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!

    It's anti-Christian to be gay?

    Wow, the persecution complex never ceases to amaze. I suppose it's anti-Semitic to be Christian, then?

    If somebody being who they are is an insult to you, you are the problem, not them.
