Jerusalem Parade per our Gedolim

by Reb Akiva at Mystical Paths

Our Gedolim have balanced the issues regarding the ImpurParade, the same gender public display of licentious and immoral behavior through the streets of the Holy City of Jerusalem scheduled for this Thursday.

The Gedolim have stated that strongly and loudly fighting this disgrace and desecration of the kedusah of Jerusalem is playing into the enemy's hands. We are giving them free publicity and bringing discussions of such horrid things to our own lips, neighborhoods, and (G-d forbid) within range of the ears of our holy children. By doing so, not only do they get to desecrate the physical environment of the holy city, but much worse they invade beyond the streets, beyond the doors of our home, right into our own minds and (worse) the minds of our families.

So, while the Gedolim have registered their political objections, and demanded the city make sure that this event say as far away from religious _neighborhoods_ as the physical layout of Jerusalem allows, that is to be the limit of actions taken.

A bunch of nonsense if you ask me. Our children are going to hear about it either way and now, they'll see that we're not doing anything about it. That's even worse. It should be the opposite. We shouldn't be so worried that our children will hear about it. Rather, we should let our children know about it - tell them ourselves - and bring them along with us to the protests to show them how wrong it is - so wrong that we stop what we're doing and go to show our voice in public protest. We need to set an example to our children that we will not under any circumstances accept such outright impurity and evil into our holiest city. I think this is the "Gedolim"s way of saying we give up!!!!!

I think it's rather pointless to protest a parade once a year when the Open House operates every day on Ben Yehuda St. It is from this office that the organization is able to promote the parade every year. Further proof that when things are not nipped in the bud at the very beginning, it grows out of all proportion and takes on a life of its own.

For anyone who suffers from same-sex attraction, there is a light in the closet. Visit www.jonahweb.org, JONAH (Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality). There is hope!
