YAHWEH, JEHOVAH & ALLAH ANNOUNCE ACCORD: NO MESHUGGAH, GONIFF-FAIGELAHS IN THE HOLY LAND

Well, all snark aside, it looks like solidarity still works. You may recall that I joked yesterday about Christians, Muslims & Jews finding common ground in their offense at a Gay Pride parade through the Holy and sanctified streets of Jerusalem.

Guess what? It worked. Parade organizers cancelled the event, due to "security concerns and pressure from fundamentalist religious leaders who called such a public display in the holy city offensive."

According to the piece, the unified offensive against offensiveness was a success:

Rabbi Yosef Elnikaveh, a prominent religious leader, has said allowing the parade to proceed was surrendering to "mental illness."

Top Muslim leaders said homosexuality is a crime and demanded police punish those involved in the parade.

Christian evangelical groups in Jerusalem have called the parade "provocative" and demanded the public venue be changed.

A predictable response when you think about it. The Jewish leader says "send 'em to therapy," the Muslim leader wants to "send 'em to jail," and the Christian leader wishes to just "send 'em away."

Here's my predictable response: a hearty Fuck You to all three.

Religious Jews don't want to lose any of their flock, they just want to cure the gay ones.

Muslims want send gay Muslims to jail where they have a better chance of converting to real Muslims. Real Muslims don't swing that way.

Christians want to send them away because they don't like being tempted.
