Here’s a heartwarming story. Amongst the age-old strife in Israel, religious officials from the Muslim, Jewish and Christian communities have buried their differences and come together in a never before seen union, for a common purpose. What could that be, you ask, what common cause could have brought these diverse people together? Well obviously – to ban a gay parade. Get a load of the peace and love that is the united voice of religions:
"I promise there's going to be bloodshed - not just on that day, but for months afterward," declared New York Rabbi Yehuda Levin, a representative of the Rabbinical Alliance of America.
"If gays will dare approach the Temple Mount during the parade, they will do so over our dead bodies," said MK Ibrahim Sarsur (United Arab List- Ta'al).
"Go send them to parade somewhere else," said one Sufi cleric. "That place can become Sodom, and God can smite them there."
And God bless you too. Isn’t it great that all the usual hatred and violence for each other, inspired by their different sky-fairies, can just this once be put aside to focus on what is really important – stopping queers from marching. God must be proud.
