A decision for which I look forward to our resident experts tearing them a new asshole for reasons.

Oh man, all the other brewers should pull out.  The first fully dry St. Patrick's Day parade!

If all the local brewers pull out, I wonder if they'd have to serve Bud and Coors at the breakfast

Good for them.  Every entity that stands up and says "This is bullshiat" when people try to discriminate - against anyone - is one more voice to be head.

LOL - paging Dr. Freud... Dr. Sigmund Freud, please call Admitting...

One more voice to be HEARD.

I'm glad that they're doing it. Sad that companies are becoming more ethical than politicians.
 
2014-03-14 02:44:18 PM  
So the gay agenda is to defund a parade? Somehow, that seems counterintuitive.

the comments in TFA offend me for many reasons, not the least being the awful tastes people have in beer.

That's the thing that I've wondered about. Why are they concerened about THE GHEYS marching when they should be more concerned about the drunken stereotype attached to this day?

I'm still not sure what gays have to do with Saint Patricks Day, but good for Boston Beeer for taking advantage of a good PR move.
 
2014-03-14 03:39:27 PM  
There's some Bostonians who are afraid they will get black out drunk and start making out with one of the gay marchers, that would suck wicked bad.

Because there is such a thing as a gay Irish person?
 
2014-03-14 03:45:31 PM  
In many ways Ireland seems to be years ahead of many in the Irish-American community with regard to LGBT rights. Ireland is holding a national referendum to allow same-sex marriage in their constitution next year (they already have civil unions), and it appears to have broad public support. Poll: 73% of public back allowing same-sex marriage in Constitution
 
2014-03-14 03:46:38 PM  
Sam Adams generally does not promote pulling out
 
2014-03-14 03:46:58 PM  
I hate that the St. Patrick's Day parades have taken this stance (NY has the same issue).  Good on Sam Adams.

Eww, you put that in your mouth? You know, if you try it once that makes you a Sam Adams drinker.

Why do you think St. Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland? Homophobia, that's why. He was afraid one would crawl up his ass and infect him with teh ghey.

Why do some gays feel the need to be in a parade?  I can understand if gays weren't allowed to walk with the firefighter's float or the classic cars, but for gays to walk in a group to announce that they are gay makes as much sense as a group of straight people in a parade with banners about some sexual position/act.  "Hey, look at me!  I like sex that you might disapprove of!  Look at me!"  Idiots.

Exactly. Plus the parade features floats and groups from unions, high schools, churches and local businesses, they let all those non-vet groups march to celebrate their Irishness, just not the gay-Irish.

They need to STFU and remember that politics and beer don't mix unless you want your nose busted.  Shut up and make good beer and lots of money.

why do straight people feel the need to be in a parade? If anything a parade is kinda gay...

I'm sure there's all sorts of variations of people that happen to be Irish. I'm also quite sure that they don't all have parade floats, and that a parade containing a float for every group an Irish person has ever identified with would be ridiculously long.

I honestly have no idea what the details of the start of all this hubub is. The impression I got was someone said "lets put a gay pride float in a St Patrick's Day parade!" and the organizers said "Uh, no, it's a St Patrick's Day parade, not a gay pride parade." Of course, I'm entirely making up the conversation based on impressions from headlines. Maybe it's something insidious like "We are going to let all these different groups have a float, but gays can go fark themselves". I don't know. Either way, it seems to be good PR for Boston Beer, so good for them.

Odd, since it's never (and never will be) cool to drink that swill.

Dr Dreidel: What do non-Catholics have to do with St Patty's Day?


The Catholics aren't organizing the parade.  Its a veterans organization.  So I go back to my original question.

/catholic irish ginger here.  not a veteran.

Maybe because being gay isn't just some icky sex thing. It's also about relationships and marriage.

You know, unless you see an elderly straight couple hold hands and can only picture them farking.

A veterans group that represents gay men and women wanted to march.  After much drama, finger pointing, and fake outrage - the veterans group that organizes the parade said no.  Its hard to get the real story of what happened but since St. Patricks day parades have been notoriously anti-gay in the past - I'm just going to blame the organizers.

Sam Adams beer is fine. It's no Old Style, but it will get you where you're going.
 
2014-03-14 04:09:01 PM  
But, I thought the best part about being gay was that you didn't have to pull out!?
