A gay rights group in New York will protest at the traditional St Patrick's Day Parade today.

The group, Irish Queers, plans to disrupt the parade, which excludes members of the LGBT community on the grounds that it is a religious event.

"We're sick of hearing city officials say they can’t intercede in the homophobia because it’s a religious march," said Tierney Gleason of Irish Queers.

"If it's a religious anti-gay parade, and uniformed cops and firefighters have to be pulled out.

"It can't be both privately religious and publicly Irish."

Today's St Patrick's Day parade will be the 247th in the New York's history.

Its a right of association. The Supreme Court ruled on this in the Boy Scout case. The real agenda of the G/L lobby is to coerce acceptance of an immoral behavioral practice. That is quite un-american in scope.
