Great minds BonoVox.

That's the really fascinating thing about biggotted U2 fans - do you guys plug your ears when they play Pride or MLK? Did you hide under your chair at Vertigo shows when they read the declaration for human rights? Do you realize that your favorite band would be disgusted with your views that do not embrace diversity and everybody's differences? I may be an atheist but I can respect Bono's spirituality, especially his belief that it's for God alone to judge people. Who are you to judge others in the name of God?

How the hell can you equate being Gay with being a Nazi?

I came into this thread thinking that it would be about the Dark Side of the Moon/Wizard of Oz sync.

I now leave this thread horribly offended and disappointed.

Is a protest march the same thing as a parade?

I respect and wish MLK was never killed by a biggoted person(s) I listened to the Decleration of Human Rights. Let's see where did I say I hated Gay people no where so stop putting words in my mouth. Obviously for an atheist like you, you seem more hateful as to put words in my mouth.

You seem to be judging me. What have you done to help your fellow man, woman or child????????

I never compared them to fucking Nazi's, but you seem to twist that to fit your taste. Dread I know you are Former Military and do you think that Skin Heads and KKK Members have a right to protest, even though they are some of the most evil SOB's in the world??

What I am saying is if they can have there Gay Parade in Jerusalem, then I think other groups should have a right to also since some think it's not sacred ground.

This year, the organizers have decided to hold the parade in Jerusalem which ,as everyone knows, is Judaism's holiest city, as well as being the holy city for Christians and Muslims too.

While Israel is truly a democratic country, the decision to hold the parade in Jerusalem (which has a predominate ultra-religious community) has been met with controversy and violence from the religious communities (as you can see in the article below).

you attached the wrong article

Flier Offers NIS 20,000 for Killing Gays
Tuesday, July 11, 2006 / 15 Tammuz 5766



(IsraelNN.com) A leaflet distributed in several neighborhoods in Jerusalem offered NIS 20,000 ($5000.US )to anyone who kills participants in the International Gay Pride Parade scheduled to take place in Jerusalem next month.

The flier also suggested that fire bombs be used to kill the participants and gave instructions on how to construct them.

The parade has generated much opposition from many religious groups in the city who are opposed to the holding of such a parade in Jerusalem. Public opinion polls show that the vast majority of Jerusalem residents are against the parade.

Later this week, a police report is expected to be issued as to whether the parade is considered a security risk. If the report determines that it is, the parade may be cancelled.

When I put Gay parade and Nazi in the same line it was only example and I was not comparing them to Nazis. So let's say I put Christian coalition or Comicon or others what would you say then??

Dread I never Ever said I hated GAY people!

So wrong. But I wonder how many will now jump up and down and say must be them Christians.

OMG me too!!! It was like a mirage or something

I think it was a novel idea to do a parade in Jerusalem. The message there is that the people in the 3 dominant religions affiliated with the city can open their eyes and truly see people of the homosexual community as Children of God just as themselves.

The horrid reaction to this simple message makes me think society as a whole is a lot further behind than I had originally thought in terms of equal justice.

Read it again, Dreadsox. He did not equate or even compare being gay with being a Nzai.

Somebody tell me: these belief systems being spoken of...these universal truths...these supposed actual words of Yahweh, Jesus and Allah...are they really lame and weak? So weak that their followers shake in their boots when a harmless parade comes by for a couple hours?

I want a God that's strong and doesn't get scared of a parade. And, hey, one that maybe even likes the harmless people in the parade and doesn't want them killed.

Can somebody pass along a God like that?

Your precise words: "So don't you think it would be insulting to muslims, Jews and Christians to throw a party (Gay Parade, Nazi Rally or what ever)" - you're saying a Nazi rally is a party on equal footing with a gay pride parade with equal power to offend.

When you equate a gay pride parade with a Nazi rally (which is exactly what you did - we can all read), you're making an implicit comparison.

No, you never said "Nazis and Gays are the same". But you implied it.

You honestly never thought about what that kind of comparison suggests?

I'm with Dread on this - if I were a moderator I'd be having a serious discussion with the rest of the forum staff right now.
