I would hope that protestants would recognize that having a float promoting Protestantism in a Catholic(ish) parade is in poor taste, and so wouldn't do so.  A Protestant on the firefighter's float on the other hand is adding to the event instead of trying to push an agenda.

VladTheEmailer: I alone am best: So I dont get it.

The parade sponsor, backed by a Supreme Court ruling, has said that gays and lesbians have always been allowed to participate and that any form of political activism is banned to maintain the spirit of the parade. MassEquality rejected the condition that its group not march as openly gay veterans.

Whats the problem?

The assumption that being gay is a political statement and not an expression of their identity.

They are not campaigning to make you gay.


But they would be trying to make a political statement about gay rights. That is part of why SCOTUS sided with the Parade (9-0 btw) in allowing them exclude the gays.

Norfolking Chance: Lando Lincoln: That Guy Jeff: 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.

What do veterans have to do with St. Patrick's Day?

What do Americans have to do with St Patrick?


I think if you went to Ireland they would ask what do the Irish have to do with St. Patrick's day.

And now the rightards add "Sam Adams Beer" to the list of people they hate.

At this rate, what products will be left for them to buy besides Chik Fil A and Rush Limbaugh's bottled tea?

VladTheEmailer: TeddyRooseveltsMustache: Harpoon is better than Sam Adams. It kinda sounds like Sam Adams was just pressured by local taverns to back out of it.

I can't imagine a local tavern, even a few local taverns, would have that much influence on their bottom line.

This was a genuine 'fark you' to the organizers


Either way, I don't get how people don't see the parallels between gay rights and other civil rights movements.

IIRC in a previous year they used the claim that it was a parade to celebrate being "Irish" which - for some reason - precluded being gay.

Then a gay Irish group (as in FROM IRELAND) asked to march...

... they were turned down too.

Remember - the guy who is in charge of the parade is named "Wacko" Hurley.

gingerjet: 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.


What do public parades in the US have to do with St Patrick?

flondrix: cameroncrazy1984: Because there is such a thing as a gay Irish person?

God loves the Irish!
Unless, of course, you're gay
That was their pronouncement as the pipes begin to play
You can be a con, a Mafia Don, we'll laugh it all away
But you can't be Irish if you're gay!

Shut up. Off my lawn. Get lost or I'll hit you with my walker. How about I throw my dentures at you?

Also, you're wrong. Still made, still great on a warm summer night.

zzzzt: 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.


There's some idiocy here, sure, but not where you think it is.

You could apply the same logic to any group: "Hey, look at me!  I'm a Catholic!  I pray on my knees!  Whooo!  Look at me!"

So we should tell the Catholics they shouldn't draw attention to themselves and should just mix themselves in with everybody else?

All this Sam Adams hate is lame. At least they're using their significant distribution capabilities to introduce people to other beers, with a brewery people "know".

Everytime I go to the store they have some new flavor, good on them. Couple of their IPAs that came in that case were quite good. Some of the people who try their new flavors will then try microbrews, and then we all win.

Oh, you meant the TB. Yes, sadly. But I like bock beers so Spaten bock. Tasty.

I meant the summer brews by SA. They are still done each year. And I likey.

More than the homophobia, it just bothers me that somebody wants to be controlling about who marches in a St. Patrick's day parade. It's a goddamn parade of drunks celebrating a made-up American holiday that's about getting shiatfaced. They should let whoever the hell wants to march in the stupid parade march in the stupid parade.

Agent Nick Fury: doublesecretprobation: I alone am best: So I dont get it.

The parade sponsor, backed by a Supreme Court ruling, has said that gays and lesbians have always been allowed to participate and that any form of political activism is banned to maintain the spirit of the parade. MassEquality rejected the condition that its group not march as openly gay veterans.

Whats the problem?

By that logic then the Disabled American Veterans should be forbidden from marching as well.

First person I ever farkied as "F'ing idiot".

Congrats.

Normally I'd just ignore you, but what exactly is so idiotic about my statement?



Your first instinct was probably correct.  I've been watching Agent Nick Fury for a while, over several threads, and I've seen him post a lot of crap worthy of plonking.

He's intellectually weak; his best posts are straw-man arguments (2 different threads), tu quoque projection, and generally stupid nonsense.  In terms of his personality or posting style, he is defensive, belligerent, dumb, harshly judgmental of others, and prone to insulting anyone he disagrees with, as you've witnessed.

Each of these adjectives describe specific behaviors I encountered in different threads (I assure you I'm not just tossing synonyms at you, they were separate offenses), and in all that time, I have never once noticed him saying ANYTHING that wasn't stupid, hateful, or hostile --- when not all three.

He is, in short, a complete waste of oxygen --- as far as I can tell.  Maybe underneath all that is a rational, decent human being, but so far, I have seen no evidence to support that hope.

What do non-Catholics have to do with St Patty's Day? I say, if y' nawt a papist, you can fahk off home.

// and anyone who pronounces terminal 'r's gets the sideyes


Paddy's, not Patty's. It's short for Padraig, the Irish form of the name Patrick.

I really wish the farkers would start making Scotch Ale again... I loved the hell out of that stuff! For a while after it became unavailable on its own, you could pick it up in a mix pack with some other brews, but now I don't think you can even get it that way...

Good work Sam Adams, get some free Marketing/Publicity by choosing the "populist" position on the the controversy du jour (gheys)  AND you're saving the $ponsorship fees all at the same time.  You guys have shown me that you can have your cake and eat it too.
