Charade Dishonors Saint Patrick and Parade

Saint Patrick
In Boston and New York, persons with same-sex inclinations representing gay activist groups are marching openly for the first time in Saint Patrick’s Day parades after years of lobbying and court battles. In Boston, two LGBT groups have been invited to participate in the parade “honoring” Saint Patrick – Out Vets and Boston Pride. In New York, Out@NBC-Universal will be allowed to march in the parade for the first time.

These groups reject Catholic teaching on the immorality of homosexual acts and advocate for same-sex “marriage.” The Church is on the defensive, and Church leaders are concerned about appearing intolerant. Of course, the Church does not reject those who struggle with same-sex attraction, but does teach that homosexual acts are contrary to Natural Law and are gravely immoral—just as any sexual acts outside of the sacrament of marriage are immoral.

The LGBT groups are not simply marching as individuals. They march to advance an agenda that is diametrically opposed to what the Catholic Church stands for.
