As things stand now, the 2015 St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City will have homosexual activists marching…
…under their own banner promoting the acceptance of homosexual sin!!!
And this is because the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, breaking with 252 years of precedent, has authorized an activist homosexual group to march in the 2015 parade.
This homosexual group call themselves, OUT@NBCUniversal.
But there’s even more!
A group called Irish Queers has applied for a place in the parade!
That’s why I am asking you to:
Sign this petition:
Perhaps you know that the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City was founded in 1762, to honor St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.
And it’s the oldest Catholic parade in America and the largest in the world.
So I ask you: Are we going to just stand aside and let this group blatantly promote homosexual sin?
As you know from the Bible, this very sin led God to destroy the cities of Sodom of Gomorrah with fire and brimstone. This matters.
That’s why I’m asking you to:
Sign this petition:
We must try to save the holy memory of Saint Patrick from being dishonored!
And we must try to save the St. Patrick’s Day Parade from becoming a national platform for the promotion of unnatural vice.
And that is why I ask you to:
Sign this petition:
Catholics are deeply disturbed about the Parade Committee’s caving to pressure from homosexual activists to allow OUT to march in the 2015 parade.
Believe me, the liberal news media will make sure that the whole world knows about the decision.
Plus -- many Catholics were again disturbed to learn that having allowed the homosexual group in, the Parade Committee asked Cardinal Dolan to be the Grand Marshall of next year’s parade. And that he accepted.
His acceptance breaks precedent and principle. A previous Archbishop of New York, Cardinal John O’Connor, standing on principle, refused to allow homosexual groups to march in the parade.
Under intense pressure from homosexual activists and then NYC Mayor David Dinkins, Cardinal O’Connor said political correctness was not worth “one comma in the Apostles’ Creed.”
He added, "Irish Catholics have been persecuted for the sole reason that they have refused to compromise Church teaching. What others may call bigotry, Irish Catholics call principle."
He also said that he “could never even be perceived as compromising Catholic teaching by entertaining their admission as an identifiable group in the city's 232nd parade up Manhattan's showcase Avenue in honor of Saint Patrick.”
But now, everything has changed.
And that is why a copy of this petition will be sent to His Eminence Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York.
I think you will agree that, if this ruling stands, it will make it impossible for you and I to participate in the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Simply put, it is wrong for Catholics to march side by side with homosexual activists who openly promote their sinful lifestyle and agenda as normal.
St. Patrick, who did not compromise with the pagan practices of the times, would certainly not approve of doing so. He never backed down or minced words when it came to defending Church teaching!
We also must not back down. We cannot be accomplices to the mainstreaming of homosexual sin.
To this, our conscience says "NO".
It’s just not right. We don’t want to draw down God’s chastisement upon our nation.
But we do want our parade back. The way it used to be in the days of Cardinal O’Connor.
Please think about it. Seriously.
The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is supposed to honor Saint Patrick, the patron of Ireland, and the Archdiocese of New York…..
We cannot honor Saint Patrick by promoting the mainstreaming of the sin of homosexuality.
So let’s ask Saint Patrick, from his place in Heaven, to help us win back HIS Saint Patrick’s Day Parade…after it was hijacked by homosexual activists.
Sign this petition. Urge the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee to:
Here, please ask St. Patrick…
Saint Patrick, from your place in Heaven, help us win back YOUR Saint Patrick’s Day Parade…it was hijacked by homosexual activists. Amen.
