New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who plans to skip the nation’s largest St. Patrick's Day parade because participants are banned from carrying signs or banners identifying themselves as gay, joined the gay-friendly St. Pat’s For All Parade Sunday, saying it honors the traditions of the city by celebrating inclusion.

“This is a parade that celebrates inclusion. … That is what the city is about. That is what has made this city strong,” De Blasio said after arriving at the parade, an annual tradition in Queens that attracts a few thousand participants.

In a nod to those who started the Queens parade in 2000, the mayor said it was sometimes necessary to “start a positive change, even when it doesn’t seem easy.”

“Over time,” De Blasio added, “people cling to it. They understand it’s the right way.” …

The New City liberal democrats voted for this ####.

Zero sympathy from the rest of America when this insane liberal rams his progressive actions down the throats of New Yorkers.

I propose next year they’ll be even more inclusive by letting KKK and the Nazi party join the parade.

Liberals are such morons! Bumper sticker morality!

Since when is the St. Patricks day parade about sexual preference? Will heteros and bisexuals be displaying their sexuality as well? The fact is, this isn’t about sexuality at all with Marxist slime like duh Blasio aka Warren Wilhelm. It’s about fascism. You will embrace sodomy because I Warren Wilhelm demand it.

The day is not about drunkeness, politics, sinfulness, depravity nor of being merely Irish.

The day is about Christ's servant Patrick who converted the pagans of Ireland to the One True God so that they may be saved.

The St. Patrick’s day parade is a celebration of the Catholicism that sustained Irish immigrants as they became Americans. It continues to be the Faith of many. It would be hypocritical for a neo pagan pro abortion, pro homosexual marriage mayor like de Blasio to intrude in a Catholic celebration.

There’s a reason that celebration was started in “Queens”

It is absolutely “Not” inclusive.

I’m certain no theological leaders of any stripe will be participating in this narcisistic and singular “Culture “ event.

Yes, we must be “inclusive.” Which means excluding everybody who finds homosexuality an abomination.

He missed, but wasn’t missed, at the 39th annual Queens County St. Patrick’s Day Parade ... the City’s 2nd largest parade ... on Saturday in Rockaway Beach.

Anytime homosexuals get to prance around in public has never been, nor will ever be about inclusion.

Imagine that, a grown man marching with a band of coprophilic male queers. Perhaps he can pick up a few of their diseases to pass around his office community.
