Ted_Peppy: mark12A: Nobody is being banned from the parade because they're gay.

The parade doesn't want organized Gay Groups in the parade advertising their sexuality. People accept gays, they're just getting very sick and tired of gay groups waving their dicks in everybody's faces and screaming "HEY WE'RE GAY, ARE WE AWESOME OR WHAT????" all the time now. Maybe parents don't want to have to explain what gays are to their six year olds at a freakin' parade.

Just give it a rest already. People don't go to parades to learn about other people's kinks, OK?

So no "Kiss me (even though you're a guy and I'm a guy) I'm Irish!" signs?

I'm not sure that "Kiss me, I'm Irish" is sexual.  Guinness is demanding that the parade allow signs and banners proclaiming sexual diversity.  It's not a sexual diversity parade, it's a St. Patrick's Day Parade.  I think Guinness is being unreasonable about this.


How dare the firefighters carry banners. It's not a firefighter parade, it's a St Patrick's Day Parade.

How dare the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts carry banners. It's not for them, it's for St. Patrick.

How dare local schools and their bands carry signs. It's not about them, it's about St. Patrick.

papatex: patrick767: papatex: Oh look. Another one of these stories again....

What's getting tiresome in my mind is some people are "allowed" to have a public opinion and some people aren't...

If I'm a Christian and my opinion is that being gay doesn't make sense, I'm a bigot...

Wrong. You are a bigot if you deny rights to and discriminate against gays. You are a bigot if you see gays as inferior to other people. If you're having a giant farking community parade and you specifically exclude gay people, then yes, that also suggests a bigoted motive.

And just to be clear, anti-gay Christians see being gay as rather worse than just "not making sense". They see it as a sin, as something that is against God, at a minimum.

If I'm a LGBT and my opinion is there is no God, it's just their opinion...

What an odd way to put it. Like straight people, some LGBT people believe in God or gods, some don't.

I'm not saying I get bullied, nor will I ever say that, but let's all make sure we realize its a two way street and regardless of if you like it or not, the parade committee can do whatever they darn well please, regardless of a few beer makers don't like it.

Of course they can. They can also reap the consequences of their decision.

No, you didn't say you're getting bullied, but you did claim a double standard is being used against you. It suggests that you feel persecuted, which is patently absurd.

So this goes for those with the opinion against the LGBT community, but the LGBT community shouldn't have to deal with the "consequences" of their decisions?

No, I'm not bullied, nor am I persecuted. But you further my point by automatically assuming that notion based on my opinion..

Apparently it doesn't matter that 9/11 happened on W's watch.  Maybe it wasn't a terrorist attack in their opinions.  I'd respectfully argue that it was much worse than anything that happened in Libya.

But here's the thing: the problem is that this situation exists exactly as you wrote it. The 'Irish' bit comes first for the Catholics, and the Republicans, and the Swing Dancers. The only ones who won't commit to setting their other identifier aside for a while are the gays.

The occasion is St. Patrick's Day. If you can't see it in your heart to put the Irish first and foremost for the few hours of the parade, you shouldn't be in the parade.


Clearly you have a dizzying intellect.

Are you claiming that everyone who marches in the parade has a banner that just says "Irish" and nothing else?

Sorry to say this on St Patrick's Day, but I don't like drinking.  It's a lifestyle choice that I don't understand, but I support it, even though sometimes people go a little overboard with this stuff and make me feel uncomfortable.

Don't get me wrong: some of my friends drink alcohol, and I admit that I did some "experimentation" with drinking in college, but ultimately it wasn't my taste.  So, drink on!  Just don't push it on defenseless young Catholic children; that's wrong.

Now, back to the subject at hand: Murdoch and Bachmann can kiss my big old white butt.  I'm not actually comfortable with people osculating my butt, either, so I'm going to have to charge them a few pints of Guinness for it; I'll trade them to my beer fanatic friends in exchange for sex with their wives.  This way, everybody wins.

nymersic: ambassador_ahab: kronicfeld: Didn't the entire GOP just get done telling us that we don't NEED anti-discrimination laws, because those who discriminate against gays will feel retribution from the free market and go out of business

Yep.  It's so hypocritical it often seems like satire.

They think this:
Laws Banning Discrimination Against Homosexuals = Bad and unnecessary because the free market will dictate which businesses succeed or fail.
Laws Banning Discrimination Against any other Minority Group = Bad and unnecessary (see above.)
Laws Banning Discrimination Against Conservative Christians = Good, because this particular group is getting bullied by (insert minority here.)  Without these laws, people can't practice their sincerely-held beliefs, blah blah blah.

How is this hypocritical?  You guys are so intent on seeing these guys as the bad guys... I mean, they are the bad guys, I guess, but you're so intent on seeing them that way, that you immediately imagine all of their actions to be wrong.  It's fascinating.  It's its own form of bigotry, right there.
If they say it's fine to have no laws banning discrimination because the free market will take care of it, they're talking about stuff exactly like this:  people will protest and boycotts will happen.
So now they're being bigoted and boycotting something on the other side, that goes against their beliefs.  There's no request for laws preventing bullying of Christians.  Not here, anyway (yeah, I know, you get them saying they need legislation to prevent bullying of Christians in schools, etc., but that's not what this is).

This whole thread:  Seriously, what the hell?  You guys are the ones either being idiots, being hypocritical, or both.  They're just being honest in their bigotry and intents.  You guys deceive yourselves.  Good job, pat yourselves on the back.


It's its own form of bigotry, right there.

"Kiss me I'm Irish" and "start drinking at 9am" are clearly family-friendly concepts.

TFA doesn't even describe what was explicitly banned.  Was it dancing in thongs and dry-humping each other while shooting glitter guns?  Or was it wearing a shirt that says "Kiss me I'm LGBT"?  Or maybe just a rainbow?  Where else will the leprechauns hide their gold???

Anyway, what's the point of hiding the world from your kids?  Until being LGBT is accepted in society, every parent is going to have to explain this crap to their kids.  Once it's in, they'll learn it like they learn the rest of our culture.  From TV.

mark12A: The parade doesn't want organized Gay Groups in the parade advertising their sexuality.


i assume they're also banning other displays of sexuality, such as buttons/shirts that say, "f*ck me, i'm irish," right?

Honest question... why do lunch erals have to resort to this. Nobody is banning gays and lesbians. They at banning needless politics at a parade about being drunk. God Damn people. Grow up.

Next year if the ban continues, I suggest someone enter the parade with an utterly mundane looking float celebrating the usual bullshiat. Then as they pass the viewing stand, drop the sides to reveal a bunch of oiled up men in leather gstrings gyrating and grinding away to some gay anthem. Just for the laugh.

Yeah, call for a boycott of Guinness on St. Patrick's Day. I'm sure that'll work.

papatex: If I'm a Christian and my opinion is that being gay doesn't make sense, I'm a bigot...


Calling you on your bullshiat here.

I don't care if you think being gay makes sense or not. But when you attempt to legislate your religion, I care. I care a great deal.
I don't care if someone says there's a god, or even if according to that god, I'm going to some eternal torment. Deliver your message, and move on. But when you continue to harass and harangue, you are breaking the law. Stop it.
I don't care if the end times come and this god of yours is revealed to be the actual creator of the universe and all us blind, misled fools will now suffer for it. If your god was worthy of worship, he would have been worshipped.

So, say homosexuality doesn't make sense. Even tell others that it upsets and revolts you. But don't stand in the way of a secular nation when it tries to ensure that ALL of its citizens have EQUAL rights.

Just kidding, I was going to drink them anyway.

SkinnyHead: I read that the parade is not banning gays, they just don't want people carrying sex signs. That sounds reasonable.


I could use a helpful picture of what a sex sign looks like.

Rupert owns a lot of stock in Guinness, so by asking for a boycott because they stand up for the LGBT community, it will urge LGBT supporters to fly a middle finger in Rupert's face and buy lots o' Guinness and thus increase the value of his holdings.

Good job... ish?

kronicfeld: Didn't the entire GOP just get done telling us that we don't NEED anti-discrimination laws, because those who discriminate against gays will feel retribution from the free market and go out of business


Yep.  It's so hypocritical it often seems like satire.

They think this:
Laws Banning Discrimination Against Homosexuals = Bad and unnecessary because the free market will dictate which businesses succeed or fail.
Laws Banning Discrimination Against any other Minority Group = Bad and unnecessary (see above.)
Laws Banning Discrimination Against Conservative Christians = Good, because this particular group is getting bullied by (insert minority here.)  Without these laws, people can't practice their sincerely-held beliefs, blah blah blah.

Didn't the entire GOP just get done telling us that we don't NEED anti-discrimination laws, because those who discriminate against gays will feel retribution from the free market and go out of business? And isn't this exactly what we're seeing happen here? And now they're lamenting it?



"That doesn't make any sense" doesn't really have any effect on them.
