Who says hate is divisive?

Clerics Fighting a Gay Festival for Jerusalem [NYT permalink]

Now major leaders of the three faiths - Christianity, Judaism and Islam - are making a rare show of unity to try to stop the festival. They say the event would desecrate the city and convey the erroneous impression that homosexuality is acceptable.

This unlikely cooperation likely reflects each side's mounting concern over a potential Gay Gap.

I don't know if it's on the web, but the print version shows the leaders of six different identified religious groups wearing six different kinds of funny hats. It's Pythonesque. There's even a seventh person/hat combo in the picture, but the guy isn't identified.

So Jews, Christians and Muslims in Israel put their hatred aside to unite and hate gays. Amazing.

It's like someone added a new verse to "National Brotherhood Week."

Yes, the sheer variety of hats is staggering.

What's with the guy in the Santa hat?

Does anyone know who the third person from the right is?

This is hilarious specially since ABC on the weekend featured the moslem 'gatekeeper' of Jesus' tomb in J'town. Apparently, his family has been traditionally the gatekeepers for 100s of years. It was particulary funny when he described how every year, he has to make sure that the three major denominations of christianity as they vied for access to the tomb during the easter service. Frequently, the lines would be long (to see the tomb) and the different sects break out-and this Islamic gatekeeper has to keep these christian sects under control.

Ya know, the gay community is often seen as the cutting edge in new fashion trends, but they got nuthin' on these guys.
