Yes gay people are an embarrassment to humanity. Immoral and Godless.
I fully support gays and lesbians. (Transgenders not so much... But that's another topic)
However, these parades are disgusting... They promote sexuality on a level that should be beyond acceptable.
That can be very offensive, and I believe it works against the actual acceptance of gays...
They are no different than us. So why parade in underwear and rainbows and all that brouhaha?
A straight pride parade with as much promoted sexuality would be an afront to society and morally wrong.
Why should it be different for them!?
I have countless gay friends. My brother whom in love very much is gay. His bf of 7 years was like family to me.
And most of them agree with me on this.
As for guiness stepping out....I agree its an attempt at gaining popularity by jumping on a trending issue...

EVERY parade (other than the gay only ones of course) is a straight parade.
HELLO, straight people are the ones running and participating in them....
The real problem here is that gays didn't want to abide by the parade rules which did not allow them to walk with the signs and symbols that would allow them to identify themselves as gay, but then those rules are the same for every other group marching. Look them up. Any group marching has to conform to those same rules.

But if they were representing the Gay Community they should be allowed to Have a sign that says it correct?
other representations had their Logos, Symbols Banner etc. so what is the difference?
i don't believe anyone wanted to turn it into a Scary Pride Parade, they just wanted to represent the community in symphony with the Parade
"2014 GUIDELINES FOR THE
ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE
4. The only banners allowed are ones identifying the unit or “England Get Out of Ireland”. Only one identifying
banner for each unit. NO EXCEPTIONS!!
The decision came down to the refusal of the organisers to allow a banner with the LGBT sign on it.

You still cannot see the forest for all of the trees. Again if they felt so strong about marching in the parade then why not march as people instead of "gay" people ? Why did they insist on displaying their gay pride at that particular parade ?Because they were not concerned at all with the St. Patricks Day Parade. They had another agenda entirely in mind.
Same situation as with the BSA. The BSA was a Christian organization, you had to take an oath to God, learn Christian principles and all but homosexuals insisted on not being just boy scouts, but gay boy scouts. Why not start their own troop ? One that holds true to their own ideals instead of confiscating someone else's group ? I ran a troop for 12 years and I assure you if they had intended on just being Boy Scouts instead of proclaiming their sexuality (which a dang 11 year old boy has no business proclaiming to begin with) there would have never had been a problem. If the gay people had just left their sexual lifestyle in the bedroom in that particular instance then I believe there would have been no problem at all.

Studies suggesting some genetic link are not the same as studies proving a "gay gene", which hasn't ever happened.
The issue is that a group was old they weren't allowed to push their agenda in a St. Patrick's Day parade.
