Bill Donahue on Current's Young Turks show
There's always room for you, Bill.
Here's an idea: Do it.
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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
