St Patrick's Day: Guinness drops parade sponsorship over gay rights
The Telegraph ^ | 3/17/2014

Posted on 03/17/2014 2:26:39 AM PDT by markomalley

Guinness has dropped its sponsorship of New York's St Patrick's Day march after organisers refused to allow groups marching in the parade carrying pro-gay signs.

The beer-maker announced its descision after gay groups threatened to dump its product from the shelves of the Stonewall Inn, the birthplace of the gay rights movement. Guinness is not alone in boycotting the annual event. Other beer companies joined the boycotts earlier, with Sam Adams withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston's parade and Heineken following suit in New York.

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio will become the first mayor in decades to sit out the traditional march on Monday and Boston Mayor Martin Walsh didn't march in his city's parade on Sunday, either, after talks broke down that would have allowed a gay group to march.

So, on the list of "not to drink" -- Anheiser-Busch and Miller (support for illegals, support for sodomites); Sam Adams, Heineken, and now Guinness (sodomite-friendly).

So, what to drink?

By the way, let me suggest that you should be VERY careful about what beers you drink. A lot of brews that look to be smallish traditional European beers have been gobbled up by Anheuser-Busch / InBev, including, sadly, these:

Various Churches need to run floats expressing their views in Gay Parades.

Irish have always been the gays of the UK anyway.

I never regularly drank Guinness, so I can’t boycott. :) I’ll never drink ‘em now, though.

Most businesses operate from a bottom line, so I wonder ... do these beer companies have some kind of poll that indicates the faggots are heavy beer drinkers and their boycott of their beer would really hurt sales?

Or have the queers gotten into leadership positions of all these faggot friendly companies ?

So, Guinness believes it’s homosexual customers are more important than it’s Catholic customers?

FROM THE ARTICLE "The beer-maker announced its descision after gay groups threatened to dump its product from the shelves of the Stonewall Inn, the birthplace of the gay rights movement."

Guinness is submitting to threats

Well it is hard for me to be an effective boycotter of InBev because I haven’t purchased any of their products in a very long time.

So I guess I will continue to do so to the best of my ability.

The freaks have more discretionary income (since they have no offspring), and they are plagued by alcoholism and other substance abuse problems. Guinness is something a straight person can only drink in limited quntities anyway, and perverts probably have no issues with the horrendous bowel movements the next day...

Need to change that to "How should it".

Unfortunately it is, due to the liberal legal precedent that has been set called "If even one complains".

That is assuming the complaint is deemed to be politically correct at the time. Which should be the new definition of social insanity.

They’ve somehow bought into the myth that homosexuals comprise a significant percentage of the population. Hollywood and Madison Avenue have done that with their TV Sitcoms with the ubiquitous gay central character, along with a myriad number of ads that try to make you believe homosexuality is commonplace. It is not.

It must have been around 1990 that Miller aired a TV Ad stating that they were proud sponsors of “The Gay Olympics”! I have boycotted Miller products ever since.

St Patrick is recognized as one of the world's great evangelists, having led over 120,000 people to Christ and the waters of baptism.

Actual Words of the REAL St Patrick:

For beyond any doubt on that day we shall rise again in the brightness of the sun, that is, in the glory of Christ Jesus our Redeemer, as children of the living God and co-heirs of Christ, made in his image; for we shall reign through him and for him and in him.

For the sun we see rises each day for us at [his] command, but it will never reign, neither will its splendor last, but all who worship it will come wretchedly to punishment. We, on the other hand, shall not die, who believe in and worship the true sun, Christ, who will never die, no more shall he die who has done Christ's will, but will abide for ever just as Christ abides for ever, who reigns with God the Father Almighty and with the Holy Spirit before the beginning of time and now and for ever and ever. Amen. (From Patrick's Confession)

If you homebrew, don't forget the official blessing of beer (from the Rituale Romanum):
V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. Who made heaven and earth.
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
Let us pray.

Bless, + O Lord, this creature beer, which thou hast deigned to produce from the fat of grain: that it may be a salutary remedy to the human race, and grant through the invocation of thy holy name; that, whoever shall drink it, may gain health in body and peace in soul. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

I don’t know how to post pics but gay parades in San fransicko has always been in your face obscene.

Do the gays want to flaunt themselves naked or wearing bondage outfits in this religious celebration of Irish Catholics?

Not yet...but eventually, yes. The Devil has worked in them to utterly reject God...now they are evangelists for their cause.

Don't forget that we fight not against flesh and blood...

Murphy's is good. So is Beamish. But, neither is widely available nor does it store well.

One of the worst things ever to pass my lips (other than when I talk) was some stale Murphy's in Southampton, England. That still gives me nightmares, and I don't think I'll need to be embalmed when my number's up as I'm sure there is still poison in my blood from that!

It is all the fag-lovers that they are scared of. There aren’t that many true sodomites in the world, but there are huge swaths that support and promote this behavior. For some reason that is beyond my understanding.

The only reason anyone needs these sponsorships is to pay for licensing and permits.

I say they should go rogue and have a parade without them.

Murphy’s loves the fags as well.

They are owned by Heineken - who has also pulled out of the St. Patrick’s Parade so they can stand in solidarity with sodomites.

I will never touch the stuff.

Murphy’s and Beamish are both made by Heineken. Heineken has pulled out of the St. Patrick’s Parade to show their support for sodomites. So they are both good beers if you support homosexuals.

If half of the people are against your decision, and half are for it, but the half that are for it are the ones that will act on it, you side with them, assuming it is an amoral decision.

Otherwise, if you have integrity, you let your conscience decide and let the chips fall where they may.

Agreed, Guinness is a bit watery compared with Sheaf, which is one hearty Aussie brew.
