For some reason, the Globe suddenly cares what blowhard C.J. Doyle thinks about the St. Patrick's Day parade and Marty Walsh's decision to continue the city's mayoral boycott until it allows gay veterans to march. And what he has to say is:
Saint Patrick was a Catholic archbishop and is a Catholic saint. How do you honor a Catholic saint by providing a platform to those who express pride in rejecting Catholic morality? And who castigate that morality as bigotry, hatred and homophobia?
Strangely, the Globe didn't think to ask Doyle for his thoughts on Councilor Linehan marching this year in a parade (with actual Irishmen in an actual Irish country) that has let gays march since 2003. But maybe that's because the Globe didn't actually talk to Doyle - they just quoted a press release he thoughtfully issued just in time to get his name in the press again.
