Bill de Blasio skip St. Patrick’s Day parade over ban on pro-gay signs

New York City's new mayor is continuing his public fight against pro-life and pro-family organizations, this time becoming the city's first mayor in 20 years to boycott the annual St. Patrick's Day parade because organizers will not allow pro-homosexual signs, reports LifeSiteNes.

On the heels of his support for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's belief that social conservatives have “no place in the state of New York,” Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters on Tuesday that he is “not planning on marching in the parade,” and that he has not marched “in the past in [his] capacity as an elected official.”

De Blasio said his reasoning was “exclusion of some individuals in this city” by “organizers of the parade.” Parade organizers have said that while homosexuals may march in the parade, activist pro-homosexual groups may not display banners or other means of supporting homosexual relationships.

Catholic League President Bill Donahue snarkily praised de Blasio's decision, saying he was “delighted.”

“I lead the Catholic League contingent every year, and I do not want to march with a public official who does not want to be associated with Irish Catholics,” said Donahue, who noted the parade does not allow pro-life signs either.
