Catholic League and Pro-Life Group Won’t March in St. Patrick Parade But Gay Group Will

CNSNews.com) – Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, said he will not march in the 2015 St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City because he was repeatedly misled by parade committee officials that a pro-life group would be allowed to march, along with a pro-gay contingent, as part of an alleged rules change agreement.

“My reasons for withdrawing from the parade have nothing to do with Cardinal Dolan or with gays,” said Donohue in a Sept. 11 statement. “It has to do with being betrayed by the parade committee. They not only told me one thing, and did another, they decided to include a gay group that is neither Catholic nor Irish while stiffing pro-life Catholics. This is as stunning as it is indefensible.”

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City has taken place nearly every year, on the feast day of St. Patrick (Mar. 17), since 1762. Although the Ancient Order of Hibernians ran the parade for many years, control was handed over to an independent committee in 1994.Scissors-32x32.png
