And on the bigot side of the reactions to St. Patrick's Day parade organizers allowing a LGBT organization to march under its own banner is Catholic League president Bill Donohue – a longtime supporter of the ban on gay groups in the parade – who is chiefly concerned with whether or not the gays will "behave" come March.
Listen to Donohue's comments on Michelangelo Signorile's radio show yesterday, AFTER THE JUMP…
Donohue also said that his support for the rule change is "conditioned on allowing pro-life Catholics to march under their banner just as the gay group can"
Earlier this year, you'll recall Donohue applying to march in NYC's LGBT Pride parade carrying a "Straight is Great" banner in a challenge to its inclusiveness following controversy over the St. Patrick's Day parade's gay exclusion. Parade organizers said they would welcome Donohue, but the Catholic blowhard later got cold feet about the whole thing and canceled.
And in another anti-gay response to the St. Patrick's Day parade's recent decision, Msgr. Charles Pope with the Archdiocese of Washington is calling for an end to the parade because it has now been hijacked by "those who think anal sex is to be celebrated as an expression of love."
