LGBT groups march in NYC St. Patrick’s Day parade, but – surprise – these other groups still excluded

[Ed. – But hey, at least Hiz wildly popular Onner Mayor de Blasio was in attendance.]

Organizers of New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade have stopped two pro-life groups from participating in the traditionally Catholic celebration, while allowing two groups that oppose Catholic teachings to participate.

Parade committee chairman John Lahey reportedly has boasted about the 2016 parade being the “most inclusive” yet, but that “inclusion” appears only to apply to the groups that Lahey and his committee agree with politically.

The parade committee has banned pro-life groups for decades and “their exclusion has been used as the primary ‘justification’ for also keeping LGBT organizations out.” This year, however, at least two gay rights groups were approved to participate in the parade, while pro-life groups appear to still be shut out, according to the report.
