Lá Fhéile Pádraig!!!

OMG! Now They Want To Use Saint Patrick’s Day As A Media Bitch?

There comes a time when a movements urge and persistence destroys their cause in the eyes of a logical person.

First let me state – I am not homophobic.

Now, here is my beef.

In just about all public agenda’s the Pride Movement has stolen the actual meaning by claiming prejudice or alienation. This applies to ALL political area’s, every type of public gathering and lately parade’s.

Today, it is The Saint Patrick’s Day Parade’s. For those who are not sure of the true meaning of this “celebration”, here is Wikipedia’s answer:

Saint Patrick’s Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, “the Day of the Festival of Patrick”) is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated annually on 17 March, the death date of the most commonly-recognised patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461).
Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early seventeenth century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland),[4] the Eastern Orthodox Church and Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland,[3] as well as celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general.[5] Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilithe, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks.[6]Christians also attend church services,[5][7] and the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption.[5][6][8][9]
Saint Patrick’s Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland,[10] Northern Ireland,[11] Newfoundland and Labrador and Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world; especially in Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand.

So, why then should this become a posturing agenda for the Pride Movement? What does one’s sexual preference have to do with Saint Patrick?

Why is it so necessary to steal the spotlight to make your point? Should we begin to dress Leperchauns in rainbow coloured clothing? Should Santa also dress to please?

The Pride movement should realize that over-saturation only leads to less participation.
Get mad at me, I could care less. I have watched this happen to the Canada Day Ceremonies, The Pride Festival, Easter and now, Saint Patrick’s Day.

I shake my head and wonder when and what is next.

Society needs to get it’s brakes tuned up. There are far more serious problems in the world other then “Look at me, I am gay”.

What about the thousands living on welfare or disability which pays one third of the Federal Poverty Standard? What about the elderly who get lost in the cracks?

Why can’t we leave century old traditions alone and let not everything have some political agenda?

UNTIL THEN, I REMAIN, DANN – JUST AS I AM.
