Anyway, the move upset Catholic League's president Bill Donohue, who insists that his issue isn't with an LGBT group participating, but rather with the event's organizers making an exception for them. Officially, organizations who espouse a political message aren't allowed to march, so why should OUT@NBCUniversal be allowed in while, say, a pro-life group would remain unwelcome?

behind his official pouting desk
|Also, nothing kills a festive atmosphere like|
people calling each other baby-murderers.
Ok, so if there's no politics at the parade, how come Donohue's Catholic League has been allowed to march for all these years? Well, the Catholic League isn't out there endorsing any particular message. Sure, they're a religious group, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they're political.

I don't know, sounds kinda gay..."
|Who the hell is that,|
some kind of Irish Santa?
"...the parade is not about gays or abortion or anything other than St. Patrick."
-Bill Dono-wait, has he ever
even been to the parade?
|I'm confused. Was St. Patrick a|
leprechaun or an alcoholic?
The shame here is that It would have been pretty cool to see the Catholic League marching along side an LGBT organization in common celebration of Ireland's patron saint of snake drowning. Too bad Donohue had to get all butt-hurt about it. Now, instead of 'participating in American public life' he'll be sitting at home, watching the parade on TV and harumphing over how the gays have ruined everything.
