(Gawker)   Bill Donohue turned down Pride parade's offer to march because he didn't want to take part in mandatory "gay training sessions," which naturally was just an informational meeting that tells everyone when and where to be to let the parade run smoothly   (gawker.com) divider line 120

"Gay training sessions"?

...is that where homosexual gentlemen get together to build model railroads?
 
2014-03-23 12:39:12 PM  
So all this idiot has managed to do is demonstrate that he is FAR more frightened of gay people than they are of him.

Brilliant.

He doesn't need the mandatory gay training sessions. I'm sure he's already very experienced. It should all be old hat by now.

I have a feeling Bill LOVES where the penis goes way too much for his own comfort. I cannot prove this, however, I choose to believe it.

He looks fabulous to me.

His audience doesn't think that way.  The people he reaches out to - devout Catholics, usually people who watch EWTN - see him as a modern day crusader against the anti-Catholic hate in the world.  That's a large umbrella for a devout Catholic, and it includes freedom of choice, gay rights, suggestive music and TV, criticism of pedophile priests, separation of Church and State, and anything else that disagrees with how the RCC runs.  As with dioceses and religious orders, his group doesn't claim to speak for the Church (even though they are completely in line with the Church and used as a public defense network), and is financially separate in case of lawsuit.

So basically he applied expecting to be rejected and had to come up with a bullshiat reason why he wasn't even planning to march to start with?

2014-03-23 03:06:36 PM  
And here lies the difference between this piece of shiat and a member of a group truly being oppressed or having their rights violated. At some point in their struggles women, gays, blacks, etc would have boldly followed through on their actions, where this lil biatch won't. He's a bleating goat of an attention whore.
 
2014-03-23 03:07:52 PM  
Perhaps he was afraid of being picked as the bottom in a train run.

Wait, a bigoted piece of fundie shiat is a coward? Totally unheard of!

This is like the third time you've said something that would normally be a lame run-of-the-mill yet still highly offensive homophobic/racist joke but instead becomes genuinely disturbing and depressing when I notice I've farkied you as an actual cop. I can't remember what made me label you as such but I hope I was wrong when I did that. Or you have a terrible sense of humor.

He's Catholic, the priest already taught him that.
 
2014-03-23 03:17:55 PM  
I'm pretty sure no one in a gay parade needs gay training sessions.  I'm pretty sure they've got that part covered.

A "conservative" is a liar who mischaracterizes people, issues and policies for purely political gain? Color me shocked. It's not like that's what being what passes for a "conservative" today requires. I mean you don't HAVE to be a blatant liar... you could just be very ignorant too. One or the other.

2014-03-23 03:42:40 PM  
I'm not gay, so I guess I have no idea what it's like to think about penis so much.  But then again, I'm not Bill Donohue, either.
 
2014-03-23 03:51:51 PM  
Don't worry, Bill. If you don't test into AP Gay, you can take two semesters of remedial homosexuality and get your training in that way.

This particular stunt on his part was so asinine that even the folks on Free Republic were calling him out as a moron.

That, my friends, is an achievement.

Satanic_Hamster: So basically he applied expecting to be rejected and had to come up with a bullshiat reason why he wasn't even planning to march to start with?


From what I heard, he didn't really "apply", he jokingly said on some conservative interview/talk show "oh I should apply to be in the parade!  that'll show them!" or something like that.
 
2014-03-23 04:09:44 PM  
I love going to the gay pride parades here in Toronto, they're a huge fun event.  I've been in the crowd 3 times, and in the parade twice.  But there's these nudists that like to join the parade, hangin their floppy donkey dick out in the sun.  And when I see that, I go "aww, dude, what the hell!".  And everybody calls me a homophobe.

Doubtful.  They wouldn't have sent him info on going to the parade group leaders raining unless he applied.  Ain' nobody got time fo' dat.

As noted above - he applied on the assumption they wouldn't let him in, so he could call them out on being as bigoted as St. Patrick's Day parade organizers who don't let gay groups march (and with whom he agrees).

Instead, they said, "Sure.  Come on and march." and sent him the organizational info.

He then had to find a reason why he was unwilling to march that wasn't "I'm afraid I'll get stuff thrown at me" or "Crap - I'm afraid I'd get my ass kicked"... basically anything other than "I'm a lily-livered coward who exhorts others to sacrifice for their faith but really don't want any inconvenience other than the energy it takes to be a total, unmitigated asshole."  So he says this, and the devout Catholics who pay attention to him will believe it, because they're used to believing things that require a substantial amount of mind-bending suspension of reality anyway.

He made a lame argument that the St. Patrick's Day parade should be allowed to not let gay people in because there's no way they'd let straight people into the Gay Pride Parade.

The organizers of the NYC Pride parade called his bluff and said all he needed to do was file an application and go to a meeting, and he'd be in.  They proved what a total piece of shiat liar he is, and now he's pussying out.
