Gay bullies: judge not, lest ye be judged?

See also

Supposedly, gays and lesbians have been excluded from the Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade, and the New York parade as well, due only to their sexual orientation. Consequently, the mayors of those respective cities did not or will not participate in them either. But what's behind the scenes on this issue?

In Boston, it was that the organizers wanted no indication of any sexual orientation on any parade floats, banners, or clothing. This ban applied to everyone and thus was to be enforced equally, so no true inequality was involved. But then the gays and lesbians essentially demanded they be allowed to proclaim themselves en route and were thus excluded.

Why should such things be allowed as a matter of course in any given function? Why must one proclaim their sexual orientation all the time under any circumstance? Especially as gays and lesbians weren't among the founders, organizers, or parade sponsors, why should they feel they have the right to make demands upon it, again, empathizing that no one else was allowed to express messages about their sexual preferences? It leaves us to wonder who's really all that uncertain about who they are.

This is what they are: gay bullies. They aren't demanding simple tolerance; they are demanding capitulation. They are demanding, through heavily coercive means, that everyone, everywhere, and under every circumstance, not merely accept but promote their chosen lifestyle. This includes even organizations which celebrations of a heritage which has little if anything to do with them, such St. Patrick's Day parades trying to be nonpartisan, as at least the Boston parade strives towards. It isn't about inclusion at all. It's about unconditional surrender in favor of a cause many people simply cannot support, and for significant reasons.

We are all expected to examine our consciences when considering our actions. We have no less a moral authority than the Pope cautioning us about judging people, and rightly so. That said, there are two points to be made: one, while we cannot judge people we must judge actions (and their potential positive and negative effects on society) and two, who, and we mean who, are the gay rights activists in Boston and New York judging?
