Bill Donohue is fuming mad. The head of the tiny yet boisterous and well-funded Catholic League is demanding to be allowed to march in this year’s New York City Pride parade under the banner “Straight is Great.”Ah, but his bluff hath been called: NYC Pride organizers are fine with that idea.
“Mr. Donohue and his group are free to participate in the 2014 March. His group’s presence affirms the need for this year’s Pride theme, ‘We Have Won When We’re One.’ Straight is great – as long as there’s no hate,” said David Studinski, March Director of NYC Pride.Bill Donohue is a one-man hate group, and the simple fact that he continues to be supported by the American Catholic Church in his various pronouncements of what the church thinks continues to put a Donohue-sized dent in any suppositions that the scandal-plagued church might be reforming itself. There's no particular Catholic value involved in Bill Donohue wanting to march in a gay pride parade in condemnation of The Gays, he just wants to do it because he's a hate-obsessed asshole who goes to bed every night pissed off that His Holiness in Rome doesn't just hand off the daily operations of things to Bill Donohue so Bill Donohue can get things done.
There's no problem here: Bill Donohue wants to march in the New York Gay Pride parade, and the New York Gay Pride parade says he's perfectly free to do it. Get yer ass up there, Bill. Put your posterboard where your mouth is. Bring an archbishop or two, if there are still any willing to be seen in public with you.
