Organizers with Chicago’s annual gay pride parade have agreed to a later start time after one of Chicago’s oldest Roman Catholic churches objected to a newly-proposed route they claimed would block access to Sunday Masses.
Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church leaders said the new route — which would go by the church for the first time — would draw massive crowds and block the church’s entrance.
The parade attracted 800,000 people last year. It’s held the last Sunday in June and usually starts in the morning.
In a statement late Wednesday, parade organizer Richard Pfeiffer said a noon start will accommodate services.
I slhuod point out that the National Center for Responsible Gaming is a gambling industry front organization funded by many gambling industry giants such as Harrah’s and Bally’s. As with the Republicans, the Democrats are not above putting corporate front men in high positions. Both the Republican and Democratic parties are fronted by corporate front men who would rather serve their corporate masters than the American people.
