I don't know how many times I have heard people say they are not against gays- only against gay marriage. But what does a parade have to do with gay marriage? Absolutely nothing. I think alot of people use the line that they are only against gay marriage. When it comes down to it, they are against all rights for gays.

I know this is just a pick-up from AP but I would have loved to get some local insight on the St. Paul and Minneapolis parade policies!

Boycotting a St. Patrick's Day parade? Yeah, those Democrats are really people of character. Not. Read about the annual Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco where men of a certain persuasion walk around nude and openly play with themselves while Democrat politicians parade along on floats condoning the entire affair. Do a Yahoo search for Folsom Street Fair. Warning, the pictures you will see of these men are quite graphic. That is what Democrats condone, so you should see it. See what you Democrats vote for. Those are the "rights" you wish to grant.

"Do a Yahoo search for Folsom Street Fair. Warning, the pictures you will see of these men are quite graphic........Those are the rights you wish to grant."............... Take a look at Mardi Gras pictures and then come to the conclusion that this is indicative of all mainstream hetrosexuals. Folsom Street isn't neither and is not a reason to deny people their rights. Of course, people are just looking for an excuse. The same thing has happened to all minorities through history.
