Theocracy in Sheep's Clothing 

Meanwhile, in Israel, the religious bigots have their heads as far up their asses as the American ones:
Jerusalem officials said Thursday they will ban the annual gay pride parade set for next week, claiming the march would offend many of the holy city's residents.
Oh, fuck you. This coming from the same government that claims to be the world target for oppression, and they perpetuate the same crap themselves. Most American Jews I know have no problem with gays; in fact, some of the most gay-friendly straight people I know are Jewish. Why? Because they know what it's like to be oppressed. Historically, in America, in fact, Jews and Gays have often been banished to the same ghettos. Or have you never heard of show biz?

So, whose asses are the powers that be in Jerusalem kissing? Hm. Must be the Muslims. They're the only religious folk in that area I can think of who would be offended by an inclusive, tolerant parade.

And, anyway -- this is democracy and freedom? The thing our government is supposed to be supporting in the Middle East? Hm. Seems to me that, instead of Iran, after we pull our asses out of Iraq, we should be looking elsewhere to instill Western Democracy.

Fucking hypocrites...
