errrm example. Your saying that there is nothing wrong with having a gay parade in Jerusalem, when it's considered to be very holy, like Mecca is to muslims. So if there is nothing wrong as you say with throwing a parade in Jerusalim which would offended many people, then why would you have a problem with having other event. Why not re-enactments of the crusades while were at it.

Yeah I know the story, but what's your point? Are you asking me what I'd feel like if someone did a wounded knee re-enactment in Jeruselum?

The ground where the towers once stood is getting rebuilt on.

And normally parades can't be held in cemetaries, unless it's a day for the dead...

Does the homosexual community have a history of killing and trying to wipe out a whole race? Come on, Justin.

No not having Wounded knee in Jerusalem but on the grounds where the last free Lakotas were slaughtered.

Would the city council of Jerusalem be considered biggots for not allowing the parade to happen, since the people in the city consider it to be sacred?

No, but I am saying if something is sacred and Religious to people, do you really want to stir the bee's nest?

So it's too sacred for certain people? What does that mean?

I did not say that. I just don't think people would find it appropriate. I am sure all three religions would find some offence to it.

People pracitice religion on non-sacred ground all over the world, should I be offended and riot?

The gay community shouldn't be surprised if there's an outcry against staging a gay pride parade through a city that three of the dominant world religions -- which aren't exactly quiet on the subject of homosexuality -- claim as their own.

Which strikes one as being just a wee bit of a publicity stunt. Not that there's anything wrong with staging such a stunt, it's just that then turning around and crying foul seems a little dubious.

Aren't all parades a publicity stunt of sorts. I'd say threats of violence are a litttle more than crying foul and being dubious...

I absolutely agree, and they deserve the right to march without violence, but they couldn't have been expecting a red carpet.

I don't think the gay community was expecting such a thing. Fighting for equal rights is just that, a fight.

And picking a fight will certainly lead to one.

I just can't even respond to Justin. Your arguments are so nonsensical, and when I can make sense of what you're saying, so irrational, that I am still speechless. There is a huge difference between throwing a parade for a "cause" or whatever that people might disagree with and holding rallies to celebrate killing millions of people and indoctrinate more followers (which I assure you is not the intention of the gay community, though I wouldn't be surprised if you thought it was). Further, gay people were one of the many groups the Nazis sought to kill (hmm, does that make your view of the Nazis more popular?)

As for picking a fight by holding the parade in Jerusalem, sometimes that's what has to be done to advance civil rights. Not giving up a seat on a bus was also picking a fight.
