Screw St. Patrick's

To the chairman of the Ancient Order of Hibernians that will not allow Irish gays to march on their St. Paddy's day parade: It's your stinking parade and you can invite whoever you want. However, comparing gays to neo-nazis and klansmen IS A BIT MUCH.

Dunleavy set off a firestorm when he told The Irish Times: "If an Israeli group wants to march in New York, do you allow Neo-Nazis into their parade? If African Americans are marching in Harlem, do they have to let the Ku Klux Klan into their parade?"

Referring to the Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization, Dunleavy said, "People have rights. If we let the ILGO in, is it the Irish Prostitute Association next?"

How about the Benighted Irish Asshole Association? Are they marching?

On the other hand, Irish gays have not been allowed on this stupid parade for 16 years so they should get the hint. March on your own parade.
