NYC's self-appointed head of all things anti-gay & Catholic spins historic parade development

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2014-09-03 At 11.20.20 AmBill Donohue, the extremely anti-gay head of a tiny entity with outsized attention, has the following to say about the relinquishing of a ban that he has long championed:

Bill Donohue comments on the decision by the organizers of New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade to allow an NBC gay group to march in the 2015 parade:

Never in the history of New York’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade have homosexuals been barred from marching, anymore than pro-life Catholics have, but in both cases they were not permitted to have their own unit. I have been assured that the rules have been formally changed to allow both of these groups, as well as others, to march under their own banner. That being the case, there should be no controversy. One would hope that all the new entries will conduct themselves in a manner that honors St. Patrick, lest another round of controversy emerges.

[Catholic League]

Oh please, Bill. You lost this battle, as we always knew you would. With the parade allowing this one LGBT organization, there is no way they will be able to bar LGBT orgs in the future. It is done.

As you might know, Donohue has vowed to march as part of a "Straight Is Great" group. I pray that he will. After the long NYC winter, I always get a yearning for good, unintentionally hilarious camp around the turn of spring.
