Obama ‘proud’ to have homosexual band march in inaugural parade
Catholic News Agency ^ | December 10 2008 | Catholic News Agency

Posted on 12/10/2008 6:38:03 PM PST by Dumb_Ox

President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden have officially invited the Lesbian and Gay Band Association to march in the Inaugural Parade. One of the association’s web sites reports that the group will also march in September as part of the homosexual “Southern Decadence” festival infamous for its public lewd acts.

The Lesbian and Gay Band Association (LGBA) is a network of lesbian and gay bands comprised of concert and marching bands from various American cities.

According to a December 10 press release from the Presidential Inaugural Committee, the group’s appearance in the Inaugural Parade on January 20 will mark the first time an “openly LGBT group” has been invited to participate.

"I am honored to invite these talented groups and individuals to participate in the Inaugural Parade," said President-elect Obama. "These organizations embody the best of our nation's history, diversity and commitment to service. Vice President-elect Biden and I are proud to have them join us in the parade."

The main web site of the Lesbian and Gay Band Association hosts a YouTube video reportedly showing 250 of its members marching in the 35th Annual Village Halloween Parade in Greenwich Village in New York City.

The YouTube video, titled “Male Witch Marching Band – Halloween NYC 08,” shows a glamorously dressed man followed by two people wearing fairy costumes. They lead a band of people dressed as witches who play the song “Gimme Some Lovin’.”

The marchers were attendees at the LGBA’s 2008 conference, titled “Deliciously Wicked.”

“The weekend more than lived up to its name,” the web site states, noting the conference’s receptions, parades, performances, and costume ball.

As of Wednesday morning, the web site for the LGBA’s 2009 conference in New Orleans, lgba2009.org, describes conference plans, saying “We will also be marching in the Southern Decadence Parade on Sunday, September 6th.”

The web site reports that the LGBA conference will be held as part of Southern Decadence and Decafest. The site links to the Southern Decadence festival, which has often been targeted for protest because of its extreme indecency. In 2003, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that it had “become routine” for men to flash their genitals and perform public sex acts at the event, which bills itself as “the Gay Mardis Gras.”

“The city's wildest neighborhood gets even crazier as the French Quarter is packed for the entire event,” the Southern Decadence festival’s current web site says. In its Frequently Asked Questions section, the web site tells those with “an interest in the adult film business” that a pornographic filmmaker will be in attendance.

In a statement on its web site, the LGBA said its participation in the Presidential Inaugural will be “truly our chance to make history.”

Organizations wishing to participate in the parade reportedly submitted an application to the Armed Forces Inaugural Committee, which assisted the Presidential Inaugural Committee in reviewing applications. Experienced military musicians evaluated the presentation skills of marching bands, musical acts, and drill teams.

In total, 1,382 organizations applied to participate in the Inaugural Parade. Many of the groups approved to march in the parade are high school bands.

Can't really add more to that. He's tarnishing the office even before he takes the oath.

The sad thing is, many people have become desensitized to the point that they won't see a problem.

Well maybe the Catholic Church should have made sure it was not sending ACORN millions of dollars of parishoners money. They helped elect a baby killer.

Anybody who believes it’s ok to let newly born babies die without emergency health care is an absolute monster anyway, so nothing would surprise me with this creep.

He looks metrosexual to me. I think he’s “dabbled” in the lifestyle in the past, IMO. Skinny, sharp dressed, big ears.

Democrat officials (but not all of the rank and file) are SO pro-gay that it’s obvious that virtually all of them are lying when they pretend not to support “gay marriage”..... Obama and just about every damned one of them would come out in support of gay marriage if it were not a loser at the polls. This means that the Demagogue scumbags are both liars AND lovers of deviancy.

Some FReepers need to infiltrate this group and egg them on to perform lewd acts during the inaugural parade.

No need. It’s a gay marching band. Some of them will already be playing the skin flute.

Good Grief! Since when is your sexual preference listed along with any activity.

Next, you will be getting a phone call from the public schools to ask, “Do your children wish to play on the heterosexual soccer team or the homosexual one?

Let's blame the deterioration of society and the presidency on the Catholic Church. That's the ticket!

It’s pride about sin... so doesn’t that cancel itself out?

Next we’ll see a proud

band made up of murderers
then a band made up of thieves
then a band made up of liars
then a band made up of jealous people
then a band made up of folks who hate their parents

of course, we could just have one band that encompasses all of these sins,

and call them “Democrats”.

When I see your profile includes comments about "ex-wives" I have to wonder if you are a good Catholic or even a Catholic.

The ACORN contributions were discontinued.

If Obama wasn't such a coward he would come out of the closet and admit he's a homosexual. It makes perfect sense for a gay president to invite a gay band to his inauguration.

Yes, those are valid observations. I very much admit that I am a “prodigal son” who returned to the Church 15 years ago after my last divorce - and no subsequent re-marriage has ever been a consideration. Feel free to bust my balls if you feel like you need to, but those are the facts. I do my best to share my faith with my now teenage children and have done so throughout their lives. The ACORN contributions have now been halted, yes, but I’m not even sure if it’s a permanent stop to it. In any case, the damage has already been done and can’t be undone. The bishops have, in my opinion, betrayed us.

He knew the people weren't ready for a Gay president yet! In 4 years he'll admit that & they get their token gay along with everything else he has to offer!

I am proud to be an American, just not proud of the Democrats and their agendas.

I am not proud of our new so-called president either.

I would suppose in the end, you are right Morgana....it's just that right now, our morality has gone to the lowest level and, no I am not proud of it at all! The America I grew up in the '40's....is gone. That was the America I was proud of!!!

Hmmmmmm.....

Obama has said how proud he has been of his friends —— the domestic terrorists, the Islamist terrorists, the black racists, the extortionists, the felons, the corrupt politicians and now he has added the politically correct homosexual perverts....

I wonder if I can get the Dalia-Bama to invite my band to play in his inaugural parade... We too are considered by some to be sexual perverts, simply because we “love” pigs, sheep, cows and horses..... Our marching band “The Bestiality Beats” is really quite good.

“..this sinful stench happening in Washington!”

It could all have been ironed out to everyone’s satisfaction if the SCOTUS had assisted in resolving the mess. I believe that the American people have the right to know who is going to protect them against internal and external enemies. Instead we install a puzzle in the WH who promises to give us change. What kind of change?

Surprise me.
