Yet another example of liberal-left idiot-think, hypocrisy, and intolerance: A Christmas parade in Denver Colorado that bans the words “Merry Christmas”, and bans a church group from participating and singing Christmas hymns and carols, but allows a gay, lesbian, bisexual and transvestite native Indian group to promote their lifestyle to the kids.
Among those allowed to participate is the Two Spirit Society of Denver, a support group for American Indians who are homosexual, bisexual, or transgendered, honoring them as “holy people.”
Also included are performers of the Lion Dance, a Chinese New Year tradition “meant to chase away evil spirits and welcome good luck and good fortune for the year,” reports the Rocky Mountain News.
Despite the inclusion of these groups with spiritual connotations, parade spokesman Michael Krikorian said the event does not allow “direct religious themes.” Included in the ban are signs that read “Merry Christmas” and the singing or playing of Christmas hymns.
“We want to avoid that specific religious message out of respect for other religions in the region,” Krikorian told the News. “It could be construed as disrespectful to other people who enjoy a parade each year.”
