An LGBTQ “pride” group in NYC, Pride Center, is calling on local businesses in the Staten Island area to boycott the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade because the parade organizers — a local Catholic group — won’t allow them to turn essentially turn the parade into a gay pride march.
GCN reports that the group has applied at least twice to march in the St. Patrick’s day and has been denied each time. Larry Cummings, the president of the Ancient Order of Hibernians who organizes the parade said, “Our parade is for Irish heritage and culture. It is not a political or sexual identification parade.”
In other words, Cummings isn’t going to allow militant homosexuals to rebrand their march and overtake it for their homosexual purposes. They already have the annual gay pride march, the Thanksgiving Day parade, the women’s rights march, and the Martin Luther King parade for that. Leave this one alone.
But that isn’t stopping the militant gay group from advancing their cause. The executive director of Pride Center Staten Island, Carol Bullock, has called on local businesses to boycott the parade, telling Spectrum News, “Any organization who has applied, rethink marching that day. Any organization who is thinking of applying, again, please rethink that decision.”
Reportedly, aggressive homosexuals have threatened protest against organizations who want to sign up for the march and have posted a sign on the original sign-up location stating, “Due to the threat of a protest by the gay pride people/politicians/and ministers of other faiths on the holy grounds of Blessed Sacrament Church the parade must move the parade sign-ups to 300 Manor Rd.”
