http://irishcatholics.proboards.com/...&page=14#12124A few thoughts on the contrast between the Eucharistic Congress and the Gay Pride march.
The Congress took place mainly in stadia hired for the occasion, and well away from the city centre. The March took place right through the centre of Dublin, along the classic route from Parnell Square to Kildare Street via O'Connell Street.
For weeks before the Gay Pride march banners promoting it were displayed on lampposts (public property) in the city centre and the roads radiating out from it. There were no equivalent Congress banners on lampposts in the city centre (there were a few in Drumcondra).
What does this say about the respective confidence of the two sets of promoters? Which was being presented as a slightly shameful eccentricity to be tolerated only so long as it is inconspicuous, which was actively promoted as a glorious thing which can only be beneficial and which everyone must accept and cherish?

Scary time in the Ukraine, it would be understandable if the LGBT community became more militant with these draconian measures....

There are two reasons to love that picture.
Supporters of the Chic-fil-a chain flocked to the restaurant Wednesday for a “customer appreciation day”. The restaurant announced record one-day sales.
Gay activists are organizing a same sex kiss-in, or other PDA’s with their SO’s to use an American expression at the restaurant today. but there is dissension in the ranks, some believe it is too in your face and will accomplish little. I’d agree with that.
Politicians in Chicago, DC, NYC, and San Fran, have said the chain is not welcome in those cities, but have had to walk back their comments because of 1st amendment issues.
Two points to note. 1: Chic-fil-a puts its money where its mouth is. They close on Sundays for religious reasons and donate multi millions to their preferred causes.
2: I don’t believe I’ve ever eaten worse chicken.
