Stop Dishonoring St. Patrick!
The Catholic Action League of Massachusetts and MassResistance are urging the Allied War Veterans Council of South Boston---the organizers of Boston's St. Patrick's Day/Evacuation Day Parade---to remove the name of St. Patrick from the event, as it no longer has any meaningful connection to the Catholic Religion of the Apostle of Ireland.
Having succumbed to political pressure orchestrated by Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and Congressman Stephen Lynch, a suborned minority on the Veterans Council has callously betrayed everything that the late Council Commander John J. "Wacko" Hurley stood for and fought for, and has improvidently discarded his hard won 9 to 0 victory before the U. S. Supreme Court (which gave them the right to include or exclude any groups).
As a result, two neo-pagan homosexual organizations will become permanent fixtures in a parade dedicated to the saint who delivered, in a single lifetime, an entire nation from the darkness of paganism. One group is OUTVETS, an organization contrived for the sole purpose of imposing itself on a parade in honor of a Catholic saint. The other group, Boston Pride, is the organizer of the city's repulsive, pornographic "gay pride" parade.
Permitting homosexual groups to march destroys the traditional character of the parade, erases whatever remains of its Catholic identity, and reduces it to a secularized cultural carnival. It has also driven faithful Catholics away, including Immaculate Heart of Mary School, whose float of St. Patrick blessing the children was, for two decades, the iconic image of the parade.
OUTVETS and Boston Pride have no interest in honoring St. Patrick for bringing the Catholic Faith to Ireland. For them, Catholicism is an enemy to be defeated. They are exploiting the name of a Catholic saint to promote public acceptance of their sexual behavior and anti-Christian ideology.
It is impossible and dishonest to honor St. Patrick by showcasing those who not only express pride in rejecting the religion and morality of St. Patrick, but who castigate those beliefs as bigotry, hatred, and homophobia.
Please join us signing this petition urging the Veterans Council to stop dishonoring Saint Patrick and remove his name from the anti-Catholic spectacle which will occur on March 20th---Palm Sunday!
