LGBT group to march in South Boston's St. Patrick's Day Parade
Boston ^ | 3/1/14 | Zimmerman

Posted on 03/01/2014 4:03:53 PM PST by mgist

The Boston Globe reported earlier today that Mayor Walsh and parade organizers have negotiated a deal that would allow for LGBT advocacy group MassEquality to march in the parade, however there are conditions attached. Marchers from the group would not be permitted to wear T-shirts or hold signs that include the word gay or refer to sexual orientation.

Everyone knows that they will not abide the “rules” and will still wear the t-shirts and wave signs about being gay...

They just can’t leave us alone, can they. They’ve defiled Catholic hosts, trashed our churches, invaded our children’s scouting groups, ruined the Rose Parade, infected our blood supplies, invaded our White House, squeezed themselves into almost all our tv shows, and now this.

They should cancel the parade. If they let this nose into the tent, the rest of the camel will soon come in.

If Boston's gays wear t shirts Bostonians should consider themselves lucky.

For a better appreciation fly out and watch one of SF's parades.

They should cancel the parade . . . and do it with a big press announcement. Why they cater to these perverts is beyond me. You know damn well that they’ll pull some sort of disgusting obscene stunt during or at the end of the parade. Any bets?

“Anyone who believes they won’t make their sexuality known is delusional.”

Agreed! But they will do it in an Alinsky way that strictly follows the rules.

Say tuxedos with words (not “gay”) emblazoned on them? Hey, not T-shirts, are they now?

I have no doubt that the megalomaniac creepy powers that be want to wipe out the population. They promote abortion, promote homosexuality oppose real STD education, fight religion especially Catholic, push narcotics agenda (ever wonder how marijuana suddenly became kosher and legal and over the US?) Thank George Soros. Just what our kids needed right? More dope. The list goes on and on. Bunch of freaks Gazillionaires, who buy governments, and love no one but themselves.

Everybody needs a good laugh. Instead of getting angry at them just laugh loudly when you see them in drag or acting “fabulous” and point your finger at them. They seem to like attention, right?

Why is Irish ‘pride’ more acceptable than gay ‘pride’- or hispanic ‘pride’ with something like cinco de mayo?

Just a thought for believers who actually care about parades and man made holy days...

Be ‘proud’ people want to share in your celebration of ‘you’ or ‘us’.....

I am sure homosexuals have always marched in the parade. The difference is, before they were marching because they’re Irish. Now, they’re marching because they’re gay. I think fundamental Christian adults should demand to march in Gay Pride parades carrying signs with relevant scripture.

Yes, the Fighting Leprechaun of Notre Dame has a certain look, but was this all nothing but anti-Irish prejudice?

I agree, it irritates me to no end why people figure that being so snide and disrepectful makes them so admirable? People would be fine with anyone regardless of what they do in private, so long as said person has some courtesy. If anything, the whole pride thing has made the whole alternate sexuality thing more repulsive to me than anything else.

Satan is among the most miserable in existence, and as the old saying goes, misery loves company.

As far as dope goes, there’s a lot of ways to take it without smoke, that work. Even if you don’t smoke it at all, you can make twine with it. Then tobacco, well, here’s where policy doesn’t make sense. Nicotine solution makes for a good natural, plant-derived pesticide, that is good, with a few exceptions at actually keeping those critters off the plants, yet they have thrown out nicotine as a pesticide. Again, most products out there have good and bad uses, it’s all up to the person to make honest, wise, choices about how to properly use them.

But don’t rely on the propagandists to tell you that there is actually more uses out there than simply smoking either tobacco and/or hemp.

It’s an old Thomas Nast St Patrick’s day cartoon.

I also have an old 1880s working man’s cartoon of inclusiveness showing the politicians kicking out the hard working Chinese immigrants while allowing the drunk Irishman in.

I love Nast.

I’m Irish—but considering the legacy of the Irish in American politics (and the Church), the Kennedys, Biden, Moynihan, and all the rest of the corrupt, crooked, thieving, baby-murdering shanty Irish in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, Nast’s portrayals reflect my feelings very well.

...and then there is that very stark fact that any “Saint” inclusive of “Saint Patrick” would not be celebrating their life choices. So in that is the quandary...they are marching in a parade in honor of a Saint that would not have supported their life choices. HMMMM? Others in this parade who do honor the ‘Saint’ should point that out.

Raised Catholic in Bavaria, but later converted to the Episcopalian church after his marriage. His negative feelings towards the Irish were influenced by the mistreatment he received from them as an immigrant from Germany, to say nothing of the mass Irish immigrant support for Tammany Hall.

The parade is meaningless. A group is marching in the parade precisely because they practice sodomy.

Of course, pro-abortion Catholic politicians have been marching in St. Patrick’s Day parades for decades, often acting as Grand Marshall.

What did st Patrick have to do w lesbian rights recognition?

None, but as the Sodomites sought to force their way into just Lot's house, the demons that drive the homosexual activist work to force there way into every place they are excluded from, for thereby the devil can claim dominion, as he seeks God's throne, and to substitute his fabrications of what God created.

Well the good Ancient Order of Hibernians kept this from happening to the Fifth Avenue parade, in NY, so , where are the defenders in Boston, is what I wonder.

This is not Mississippi, and RCs and mainline Prots are overall in favor of gay marriage, and evangelicals are relatively very few.

If you like stats:

In 2003, all major religious groups opposed same-sex marriage, with the exception of the religiously unaffiliated. Today, there are major religious groups on both sides of the issue. Religiously unaffiliated Americans (73%), white mainline Protestants (62%), white Catholics (58%), and Hispanic Catholics (56%) all favor allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry. A majority (83%) of Jewish Americans also favor legalizing same-sex marriage. Hispanic Protestants are divided; 46% favor allowing gay and lesbian couples to legally marry and 49% oppose. By contrast, nearly 7-in-10 (69%) white evangelical Protestants and nearly 6-in-10 (59%) black Protestants oppose same-sex marriage. Only 27% of white evangelical Protestants and 35% of black Protestants support same-sex marriage.

White evangelical Protestants make up 19% of the adult population today, down from 24% in 2003, and white mainline Protestants, who represent 14% of the adult popula- tion today, made up 21% of Americans in 2003. While the proportion of Catholics in America has remained largely steady during the last decade, there has been a sea change in the ethnic makeup of the Catholic population. In 2003, Catholics were 68% white and 22 % Hispanic; among Catholics in 2013, the percentage of Hispanics has grown to 34%, while the percent- age of whites has declined to 60%.

Democrats are most likely to say American culture and way of life is better now than it was in the 1950s, with nearly 6-in-10 (59%) in agreement; independents (42%), Republicans (31%), and members of the Tea Party (22%) are significantly less likely to say the same. - http://publicreligion.org/site/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/2014.LGBT_REPORT.pdf

You lose the argument at ‘58% of Catholics...’

As much as those would agree with you, Catholicism is by its foundation simply not a democratic organization given to mob rule and cultural mood

It’s founding, instructional document, states a very brief, certain, biblical rule on homosexuality.

If the entire catholic population and hierarchy disagreed with it, it would not change.

Adam and Eve disagreed with God and allowed the serpent in, and allowed
themselves to be swayed against the simple rule given to them, to not know good and evil, to not be the arbiters of what is right, but to leave that to God. And God didnt change his rule to suit their mob rule. They brought death and shame, through pride

This is no different.

58% means nothing more than that they are misguided.

They are free to go to some other church that goes along with their thinking, but they’ll still have a problem, they’ll be judged as Catholics, who, BTW, have access to the catechism so much more easily than they have access to just about any other information

Google: what does the catechism state about homosexuality. Ot what does the Catholic Church state...

It’s three paragraphs written for lay people

http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p3s2c2a6.htm

And then here’s something from Courage, the catholic spiritual support group

And it puts them at odds with St. Patrick. By their nature, saints followed the will of God, that includes following the order of the catechism, at least at and near the time of their death, at judgement time.

So this is scandalous

Actually, regardless of what the uninspired CCC states, there was no distinct class of believers called "saints," and this is used to refer to all saints. (Rm. 15:25; 2Cor. 1:1; 9:1 Eph 1:1; 2:19; 4:12; (Philippians 1:1; Colossians 1:4)

Meanwhile the first universal Roman Catechism (also called, the Catechism of the Council of Trent ) was first published in 1566, and before Trent RC doctrine was much less standardized and more variegated. And which Catechism, was a result of the Reformation, as was the first infallible canon.

And some of what is usually told is as regards the works of this pious man is lacking substantiation, and other information can be rather sparse.

His own writings provide nothing that can be dated more precisely than the 5th century....The Irish annals for the fifth century are not contemporary documents,[11] but were compiled in the mid-6th century at the earliest...A variety of dates are given for his death.

Most modern scholars follow a variant of T. F. O'Rahilly's "Two Patricks" theory.[20] That is to say, many of the traditions later attached to Saint Patrick actually concerned Palladius, who Prosper of Aquitaine's Chronicle says was sent by Pope Celestine I as the first bishop to Irish Christians in 431.- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Patrick

Shaff also write of him: http://www.ccel.org/ccel/schaff /hcc4.i.ii.ix.html
