August 2 2005

Some time ago, were actively exaggerated rumors that the end of May next year in Moscow planned to hold a gay pride parade. With a sharp condemnation of such an idea in the first place by the representatives of various religious denominations.

Thus, the deputy chairman of the Department for External Church Relations of Moscow Patriarchate, Father Vsevolod Chaplin proteirey said: "to preserve peace in society, I would place the initiators of the caller refused to rally, and it is - what causes the manifestation. Homosexuality - a sin that destroys people and condemning him to eternal death. "

ROC representatives echoed by head of the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of the Republic of Karelia, the Mufti of Wisam Ali Bardvil: "Almighty sent down the punishment on the people of Prophet Lut for distribution gomoseksulizma, is a grave sin and a dangerous phenomenon."

"Islam condemns such vices, violate the moral fabric of society as homosexuality, extramarital life, alcoholism, etc. I believe that the Muslims of Russia have openly declare its position, condemning the idea of holding a gay pride parade and distribution of this sin in Russia and around the world "- said the mufti.

A similar opinion is shared by Boruch Gorin, head of the Department of Public Relations Federation of Jewish Communities in Russia: "In our opinion, such public actions do not correspond to moral and religious foundations of life, which lead the people of Russia. We are categorically opposed to demonstrative displays of homosexuality. We are against any manifestation of sexuality - a parade of men, changing their wives, would have caused us the same attitude. "

Yes, religious leaders "linked" the rigid framework of their beliefs, but strongly against the idea of a gay parade in Moscow expressed themselves members of sexual minorities.

The leader of the All-lesbian organization "PinkStar" Olga Suvorova said that could take participate in a gay parade only if it passes "in a closed room."

"We're not ready to take to the streets of the capital, more precisely, no one is ready - no town, nor homosexuals, nor the authorities - the society as a whole. I somewhat agree with what Mayor Yuri Luzhkov, prohibits such activities. The reason for this reaction crowd - skinheads and fascists. By organizing such a march to be connected all the security of the capital. I'm not sure that we can carry this pride in place, but otherwise our "amateur" can result in incidents, "- said Olga Suvorov.

Lesbian newspaper editor "Ab" Elena Ivanova: "Until our society strong homophobic installation, a gay-pride in any of the cities in Russia impossible. In my opinion, this senseless action, which once again make hopping mad people. At present, more important than shocking Pride in Red Square, and the decline of sexual ignorance of ordinary Russians .... "

According to preliminary data, Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov intention, as in 2001, say no to the idea of the show of sexual minorities in the Russian capital. However, the stubborn adherents of scandalous venture does not intend to stop at such a trifle as the opinion of the capital's mayor and public opinion.

"Mayor can not ban a march because he believes if the citizens do not support the parade - said Nikolai Alexeyev, one of the initiators of the celebration. - We are committed, and if we fail, shall see to the Russian courts and if necessary will appeal to the European Court of Human Rights. "

Good gracious! As the Lord said: "Be fruitful and multiply." How they will be fruitful and multiply? If you do not breed and multiply, it does not even advertise.
