'Family March' in Haifa is set to counter gay pride parade (Jerusalem Post)

'Family March' in Haifa is set to counter gay pride parade

The gay pride parade is set to take place in Haifa on Friday, while a day earlier, another march will take place, the "Family March."

According to the organizers of the event, the march is an initiative by both religious and secular citizens who wish to stress the importance of the traditional family values.

"We received massive support from everyone," said one of the event organizers. "Religious, secular, new olim and old citizens alike all supported us. A citizen who made aliyah from Russia translated the pamphlet to Russian and distributed it among his friends, the support was tremendous."

Meanwhile, Facebook closed the page calling for people to join the march. "We are being fought on all possible fronts," commented Attorney Na'ama Sela, one of the event organizers.

"The LGBT organizations make their way to the education system from kindergarten. There is an open debate on sexuality in school and on the street, while the ordinary family disappeared from the public agenda. The discussion speaks of vague sexuality and of a flexible family," Sela added.

In the pamphlet distributed among the public by the organizers, it was claimed that "There are already companies in Israel that black market the womb of third-world women in a child-rearing farm, and are exploiting the tragedy of these disadvantaged women for the sake of same-sex couples."

The organizers call on the general public to attend the march, "The 'Family March' is the first step in returning the discourse to the moral plane as it should be in a liberal society."



You get that last bit? They are "liberals".

1. What gay people don't have moms and dads and siblings?

 

I have a gay sister-in-law and a gay brother-in-law.

My sister-in-law is married and her wife is also my sister-in-law.

We are family.

Although not as usual, Jews this time.

3. You do realize Israel is a majority Jewish, right?

Of course, it is the only Jewish majority country, but it shouldn't be surprising there are religious bigots who are Jewish in Israel. There are, sadly, more than a few in this country too, which has almost the same number of Jews, it is just we are minority in the US, despite what some people think.

4. Of course, what's your point?

 

It is the religion that is the problem.

Yes I am Jewish, and have zero use for religion.

And no, Israel is *not* majority religious Jews.

5. Your post made it sound as if you needed to emphasize it was Jews.

I was simply pointing out that because it is Israel, it isn't surprising or should be uncommon knowledge that a Jewish group would organize such a stupid march. Don't care that you are Jewish in this instance, it was irrelevant to my question.

"And no, Israel is *not* majority religious Jews."


I didn't say any such thing, I said, "it is the only Jewish majority country".
