    It's a double standard, but it's the Jaycees' parade. They don't have to allow it if they don't want to.

    If the Parents and Families of Lesbians can have banners with gestating babies, so should the pro-life group. That is a seriously bad double standard.
    Do you work hard at being so droll or is it a 'gift' ?

    They'll probably march with their normal regard for "family friendly" events.

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    Tell them to use this pic:



    It almost looks like a float. Shouldn't be a problem.

    A developing baby in a womb is somehow offensive? If it was an aborted fetus, then yeah, a parade is no place for that from a tactful perspective, but a healthy fetus? WTF? I happen to be on the fence with this issue, but when the hell are we going to remember the 1st amendment.

    People, we are losing our liberty each and every day. Each and every day.

    It doesn't matter if they have a double standard or not. The Jaycees can decide who and what can be in their parade.

    YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS

    If you approve of the Order Of Ancient Hibernians being legally able to bar the Irish American GLBT Association from the St Patrick's Day Parade, then you also approve of the Jaycees being able to decide who can do what in their parade.

    They do have that right. And those that are offended by their intolerant attitude have the right to refuse to attend or support their functions. There are a lot of people that are more offended by this slanted venue than would be offended by the picture of a baby.

    You are absolutely correct. They have the right to associate with whom they choose. OTOH, I am surprised that the Jaycees, who have a reputation as a pretty straight-laced organization, would choose to exclude a pro-life church group and permit gay groups. Especially since their stated creed includes a statement of faith:

    We believe:
    That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;
    That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;
    That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;
    That government should be of laws rather than of men;
    That Earth's great treasure lies in human personality;
    And that service to humanity is the best work of life.
    --Odysseus
    Sic Hacer Pace, Para Bellum.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
