Oh, it was just a lot of fun - we got the occasional "go make your own parade and then you can exclude people, too!" comment (which demonstrates how much they missed the point...), but, by and large, people either knew about the story and supported us or, when we told them what had happened, they agreed with us - the most-common response being, "Well, that's bullshit." We even got prayed for and debated at by a couple of Christians (not sure just how successful they are at converting people to Christianity in Westport on St. Paddy's Day, of all times). Andy Beals got the second-most kisses, beaten out only by one of our lovely lady attendants holding a "Kiss Me, I'm an Irish Atheist" sign.
A+, would demonstrate again.
