I think that someone with the same-sex-attraction disorder can be proud of himself if he overcomes his inclination and doesn't act upon it. This is truly a great achievement. Of course one doesn't have to publicize this, and it certainly not a cause for a parade. One should walk humbly with the Lord.
I think that all of the above is self evident. So why in the world do those afflicted with the SSA disorder like to hold parades? Why do they want to parade around in Jerusalem?
The reason is of course to alter public opinion. They desire that the public accept their deviant acts as something acceptable. This strategy has certainly worked in many places. The legislation against homosexual acts has been removed from the books in many places including Israel. The cursed practices of the ancient Egyptians and Canaanites have been accepted as an "alternate lifestyle" among many in secular circles.
Jerusalem is a different story. The "politically correct" dictates that drive certain politicians and infect the minds of most television-watching-couch-potatoes mean nothing to the overwhelming majority of Jerusalem's inhabitants. The public will not accept depravity even if the deviants and their supporters in the Orwellian press tries to disguise it as modernity. Once again the minority is trying to force its will on the majority. It looks like we are in for another round of riots and civil disobedience:
A meeting was held a few days ago in the home of the head of the Eidah Hareidit court, Rabbi Yitzchak Tuvia Weiss, who said, "Tell [Public Security Minister Avi] Dichter that he had better build another ten jails to hold all the protestors. This will be a real war."Like I said, "Oy Gay!"
