If you were expecting those leaders to be from the Vatican you would, of course, be mistaken. It was Russian Jews living in Jerusalem who last week were protesting this abomination on the land where Christ walked.
Moscow, July 22, Interfax - The Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia (FJCR) is outraged with a gay pride in Jerusalem held this Thursday.
"Manifestations of such exhibitionism - demonstration of your sexual orientation in public - is unacceptable. First of all, we express strong protest to Jerusalem authorities as they permitted this abusive action," FJCR president Alexander Boroda said commenting the event on Interfax-Religion request.
He stressed that being a believer, he cannot stay indifferent to the developments in the Holy Land as Israel and Jerusalem are "holy places for the Jews of the whole world," and reminded that Judaism as well as other monotheistic religions categorically prohibits homosexuality and practices "strongly negative attitude to homosexual relations."
"A religious person bases on the conviction that we should not be guided by our passions. God set laws of behavior restricting us. Until a person stays at home, he can do whatever he wants, but out in the open it is necessary to coordinate your actions with other people's behavioral norms," Boroda said
