After decades of being banned, gay groups will now be allowed to march with banners during the St. Patrick’s day parade in New York City.  The ban was apparently lifted after pressure fell upon parade organizers from politicians and sponsors.  (see: http://www.sacerdotus.com/2014/03/green-beats-rainbow.html)

Organizers of the parade are calling it a “gesture of goodwill.”  The first group to march will be  “OUT@NBCUniversal” in 2015.  More groups will be allowed to apply to march in subsequent years.

Surprisingly, Cardinal Dolan, archbishop of New York is okay with the lifting of the ban as well. He said during a news conference, “I have no trouble with the decision at all, I think the decision is a wise one.” Dolan was also chosen to be the 2015 Grand Marshal for the parade

I have mixed feelings about the decision. It is unfortunate that this traditional institution honoring St.

Patrick has succumbed to pressure “aka” threats from politicians and sponsors.  Nevertheless, the Catholic Church has been trying hard to make it clear that it accepts the LGBT as individuals seeking God and does not endorse their way of life.

What do you think?   Comment below.
