GUINNESS BOYCOTT TAPS KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
http://www.catholicleague.org ^ | April 14, 2014 | Bill Donohue

Posted on 04/14/2014 9:33:54 AM PDT by NKP_Vet

Bill Donohue comments on the latest developments in the Catholic League’s boycott of Guinness:

We have amassed over 7,000 email addresses from the Knights of Columbus, constituting over 1,500 councils across all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Today, we are asking the Knights to join us in our boycott of Guinness.

We are confident that many Knights will participate. How do we know? Because we have been contacted by many councils already, anticipating our appeal to them.

When Guinness pulled the plug on its sponsorship of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City—over the bogus argument that gays are barred from marching—it insulted Catholics of every ethnicity. The only way to send the corporate bullies at Guinness a message is to hit them in the pocket book.

Guinness isn’t a company anymore. It is a brand of Diageo plc.

Until conservative Christians get serious about inconveniencing themselves a little and making these sold-out sodomite companies stand up and notice, we'll keep getting kicked in the dirt.

Boycott anything Diageo. I have no problem with gays but I certainly will do what I can to hurt the gaystapo.

Diaego also markets Harp lager, Red Stripe lager and
Smithwick’s ale in the USA as well as Guinness. THeir beer sales are 22% of revenue.

For those, like me, who actually like Guinness stout or extra stout, oatmeal stout like that made by Ninkasi in Oregon is a superior substitute.

Craft breweries come up with superior products, don’t they?

This Knight didn’t wait to be asked. No Guinness (my favorite) and no Sam Adams for me ever again.

Thanks for the list.

I used to occasionally drink Captain Morgan. Not any more.

The pirate is gay

I’ll boycott drinking Guinness, but you’ll have to pry my Smithwick’s (now owned by Guinness) from my cold, dead hands.

Craft brweries seem like the way to go these days with corporate “PC” running rampant

We have two close by. Both have excellent food also. One even makes their own sausage. Blue Cat Pub in Moline and Iron Spike in Galesburg Ill.

Some U.S. microbrew companies make stout; this is a good opportunity to try them out while smacking Guinness for their unacceptable attitude.
