USA, Massachusetts: Adding Insult to Injury, Parade Lets Scott Lively March

Monday, March 17th, 2014

Scott LivelyThe man at least partially responsible for stirring up homophobia in Russia and Uganda and encouraging both to pass harsh anti gay laws marched in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Boston yesterday, while gays were turned away.

Seriously.

On Top Magazine reports:

Scott Lively, an ardent opponent of gay rights and a Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate, marched in South Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade on Sunday. The parade’s policy banning gay organizations from participating has been widely criticized. Many politicians, including Mayor Marty J. Walsh and Congressman Stephen Lynch, skipped the parade over the policy.

Could the organizers of the Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade be any more insultingly homophobic and anti-gay than this?
