The Catholic League has commended a decision by the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council to cancel the 1994 St. Patrick’s Day parade following a court order which would have permitted homosexual militants to march.

Suffolk County Superior Court Judge J. Harold Flannery issued the order on December 15.

Catholic League Operations Director C. Joseph Doyle blasted the decision as an “insult to Irish-Americans and the citizens of South Boston.” Doyle also took the judge to task for suggesting, in his decision, that St. Patrick had condoned or had been indifferent to homosexual behavior.
