Will The Homosexuals Defile Jerusalem?

Tensions are rising in the holy city. Yesterday the Knesset held a meeting about the planned international homosexual parade scheduled for next month in Jerusalem. A survey was presented which in my humble opinion accurately reflects the attitude of the public:
MK Yitzchak Levy (National Union/NRP) presented a survey showing that a large majority of the public - including a full 63% of the secular public - is against holding the gay pride parade in Jerusalem.

Among the public defining itself as traditional, the number was 81%, and among the religious, 99-100%.

"Don't force yourselves upon a city that clearly doesn't want you," Levy said.
I can only second MK Levy's request. Former Sephardic Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef has come out strongly against the parade, and so has Rabbi Yosef Sholom Elyashiv.

I do not know if homosexuality is a physical malady, a mental disease, or a genetic defect. Whatever it is it is certainly nothing to be proud of.
