Culture news: Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams pull sponsorship of St. Patrick's Day parades
The exertion of corporate pressure in support of homosexuality extends to beer. Guinness and Heineken pulled support from the St. Patrick's Day parade in New York, and Sam Adams pulled support from the one in Boston. The U.S. Supreme Court had ruled in 1995, in a 9-0 decision, that organizers are free to determine their own rules for the parade under the First Amendment. This is yet another illustration that the issue at hand is not one of "tolerance." Instead it is about the forced acceptance of homosexuality and the destruction of a worldview that considers it to be wrong.
