The Catholic League is sending a strong message
to three different beer brewery companies that boy-
cotted St Patrick s Day parades over gay rights
issues: We should boycott you, too.
Catholic League President Bill Donohue, upset at
the makers of Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams
who pulled out of Boston and New York annual St
Patrick s Day parades after organisers refused to let
gays have their own special marching section, now
says the faithful ought to stop buying those brands,
The Blaze reported.
In a written statement, Donohue said: "No gay
person has ever been barred from marching in any
St Patrick s Day parade, any more than the parade
bans pro-life Catholics or vegetarian Catholics. They
simply cannot march under their own banner. The
parade has one cause: honouring St Patrick. Those
who disagree do not have to march---that s what
diversity is all about."
Donohue also accused the gay rights crowd of
taking part in a "bullying campaign" to pressure the
brewery companies into pulling their sponsorship
Guinness, after pulling its sponsorship from the
New York City parade, received much cheer from
GLAAD, the national gay rights group.
Heineken, meanwhile, pulled away from the same
New York parade, saying in a statement that "we
believe in equality for all," CNN Monday reported.

BEIJING---China s education ministry ordered
a nationwide investigation yesterday into
whether schools are giving students medication
without permission after a protest by parents of
kindergarteners who were given an antiviral
The announcement came a week after an angry
protest by parents whose children were given the
drug in the city of Xi an. Some children suffered
stomach pain, dizziness and other symptoms but
authorities say it is unclear whether it was linked
to the drug.
Police in Xi an said two kindergartens gave
children the medication to improve attendance
rates and boost their incomes. Police said they
have detained suspects and are determining how
extensively the medication was used.
A kindergarten in the northeastern city of Jilin
also was found to be giving the drug to students.
Authorities shut down a kindergarten in the
central city of Yichang after its president admitted
giving pupils an over-the-counter anti-fever
drug and vitamins to boost immunity and
improve attendance, the official Xinhua News
The scandals have raised public concerns over
the safety and health of schoolchildren. (AP)
