Jerusalem Bans Gay Pride Parade

"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."

"Organizers of the parade appealed to Israel's Supreme Court to repeal the ruling, saying the decision was a violation of the homosexual community's freedom of expression."

According to this logic, the city should allow a neo-nazi white supremacist parade.

"A majority of Jerusalem's more than 600,000 residents are either Orthodox Jews or Muslim or Christian Palestinians -- conservative communities that oppose homosexuality."
