NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade: Is Gay the final frontier of, ahem, tolerance?

How about parishioners left behind by suppressed parishes and churches sold and/or demolished?

Cardinal Dolan is taking some heat from conservative Catholics as he will be Grand Marshall of the first New York St. Patrick's Day Parade to include a gay group marching under its own banner.

Next year representatives of parishes suppressed or churches demolished since 2007 should apply to the committee to march under the banner of their extinguished communities.  We are still here in the Archdiocese of New York, we are still Roman Catholic and we are still orphaned by the loss of our parish families.  Yes, we have step-parishes, but we will be orphans for life.

Next year let's march under a banner reading "The Forgotten Remnant of Our Lady of Vilnius."
