“Cheers to Guinness”

18 Mar


I appreciate this news from yesterday’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations: http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/hamill-cheers-guinness-pope-rejecting-bigotry-st-patrick-day-article-1.1724815. As journalist Denis Hamill notes, “Pope Francis is more accepting of gays in the church than the anachronistic [New York City] St. Patrick’s Day parade committee.” And it’s not just the committee. Hamill continues, “I hear from people all the time that gays are welcome to march up Fifth Ave. in the parade as long as they don’t identify themselves as members of the LGBT community.” That is, as long as they identify-by-default as members of the hetero community?

Hmm. Here’s to corporate activism making a difference.
