The Catholic Action League of Massachusetts today is calling upon the Allied War Veterans Council of South Boston—the organizers of Boston’s Saint Patrick’s Day Parade—to remove the name of the saint from the March 18th parade.
A parade named in honor of the saint who brought the Catholic Faith to Ireland will now showcase homosexual groups who not only express pride in rejecting the Faith of Saint Patrick, but who castigate its moral code as bigotry, hatred, and homophobia.
It will also feature politicians who repudiate Catholic teaching on the sanctity of life and the integrity of marriage, and who believe that Catholics have no moral or legal right to preserve the Christian character of Saint Patrick’s Day.
The organizers of the anti-Catholic carnival on Broadway should stop misappropriating, exploiting, and cheapening the venerable name of our patron saint for an event which advertises those who repudiate the beliefs of Saint Patrick. The March 18th parade, as presently constituted, is an insult to Saint Patrick, and an affront to all faithful Catholics.
