Once again the PC crowd and secularists taking Christ out of Christmas … Organizers have renamed it the Patchogue Holiday Boat Parade from the Patchogue Christmas Boat Parade. It is not even Halloween and the assault on Christmas has begun. According to the organizers there were complaints that the parade of less inclusive. Complaints? How many 3? One might want to look as to what the reason for the parade was. Was it, um … Christmas? The assault on Christmas begins once again in the name of inclusion. We all might want to remember “the reason for the season”. Its not about a parade … it is about the birth of Christ.
Organizers in the town on Long Island, near New York City, said the parade has had several names over its roughly 15-year existence. The name was changed again this year after complaints that the use of “Christmas” seemed to make the parade less inclusive.
“When I think about fireworks, I don’t think about Christmas anyway,” Mayor Paul Pontieri said.
The venerable Grucci company is famous for providing spectacular fireworks displays at major national celebrations. It is based in Brookhaven, not far from Patchogue.
