Boycott of Guinness Beers Continues

Guinness Beer Boycott
"They stabbed you in the back and left you for dead." That is how one New Yorker described the move early this year of Guinness Beer to boycott the annual religious celebration called the St. Patrick Day.

Even media mogul Rupert Murdoch denounced the move by Ireland's iconic national stout to withdraw sponsorship of a popular event in New York over the non-participation of gays. Mr. Murdoch's initial reaction was to serve tit-for-tat by taking on to Twitter and urge drinkers to put down their Guinness pints in protest.

Mr. Murdoch's move produced a tidal wave of support and now various organizations are calling on their members worldwide to boycott Guinness.

"Where will this end? Guinness pulls out of religious parade bullied by gay organizations who try to take it over. Hope all Irish boycott the stuff," Mr. Murdoch tweeted a few months ago.

St Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated annually on 17 March, the death date of the famous patron saint of Ireland, St Patrick.

several popular watering hole for New York beer drinking community, has already stopped selling Guinness because of their sponsorship withdrawal. Straight and religious organizations are being pressured forcefully by gay activists to let them join the religious parade even if it is against the moral beliefs of the organizers.

Guinness said in a statement it had a strong history of supporting diversity and being an advocate of equality for all. This means that even if the organizers do not believe and support the gay agenda, Guinness will try to compel them using all available means to accept gay and lesbian marchers.

"We were hopeful that the policy of exclusion would be reversed for this year’s parade,” a spokesman for the brewery’s parent company, Diageo, said in a statement.

Conservative and traditional group representatives said a couple of days ago that they want to send a strong message to Guinness and gay groups that they will not be pressured to accept anything that is against their moral beliefs.

Hopefully, future religious events realize that they have all the right to resist any kind of political maneuver that will try to change their principles and see that majority of families in the United States are silently supporting their activities.
