Karen Grube is ENTITLED to her opinion, but I seriously doubt many will boycott the Tournament of Roses Parade.........now, some will and they certainly can.......but the float and the wedding is well within the Theme of the Parade this year..........Congratulations to the happy couple and to ALL the happy couples getting married:-)

By the way....when are folks going to learn the difference between "ILLEGAL" and "NOT RECOGNIZED"? They DON'T mean the same thing!!!

It appears that she will NOT be attending or even watching it on TV..........funny how the only folks who might even see that wedding take place is those who are actually attending the Parade..........most probably won't see it on the TV except maybe on the News........silly people just don't get it!!!

Good luck with that boycott, Karen. Don't hurt yourself jumping up and down and screaming, okay?

I suspect this will be another "successful" boycott in the mold of the Baptist boycott of Disney. Lots of people will say they boycotted the parade, but will still watch it with their kids, to whom they can't say no about such a special event.(When the Southern Baptists announced the Disney boycott so many years ago, the park attendance in Orlando actually INCREASED by 5%. As a holder of a large block of Disney stock, I sent the Southern Baptist headquarters a thank you note and a flower arrangement, along with the request that they call a boycott every year.) If anyone is truly bothered by the wedding, which I DO think we will see a big part of on TV (sorry, NorCal), they can simply turn their heads, go take a pee, fix a snack, and on and on.

Karen is still, I see, living in her own special world where she has the power to change things to the way she--and only she--wants them. Her belief that the parade will cease to exist after her boycott is so outlandish that I find myself feeling sorry for her. Someday I'd like to ask her what color the sky is in her special world.

Other than all of that, Happy New Year, everyone. Or, as we say it here in Paradise: Hau'oli Makahikihou.

Sex sex sex, being forced into the minds of every human being young and old. Once upon a time you could mainly pin the sensationalism of it on Judas. But now it's everywhere and has lead to a compulsive, consumerist, and violent society. We are losing our values and virtues every day.

I certainly won't be watching it and don't know anyone who is. Nobody in their right mind wants to watch a pervert parade.

She can boycott about the entire Fortune 500, too, with the possible exception of Exxon, while she's at it.

Do you fantasize about ALL couples getting married having sex with each other? Or just the gay ones?

I don't mentally masturbate little children with it. Nor do I wish to sensationalize it with the rest of the world. The love for my wife, my children, and our marriage stands on its own. The virtues and values of this nation are deteriorating very quickly.
We deserve what is to come. Well, some of us.

Famine, substance abuse, failing currency, endless wars, etc. Just how Judas planned it all along.

Neither do Gay men, but yet here ya are accusing of them of something without ANY real evidence to back up your claim......how pathetic, but then you're just a troll who posts under multiple nics!!!

The love for my wife, my children, grandchildren and my marriage stands on it own as well.....no matter what nasty crap you make up!!!

What is deteriorating in this Country is idiots like yourself who feel they have some right to tell others how to live their lives, by what morals and values all based on their particular religious beliefs!!!
