A Jewish-Christian coalition launched a drive to cancel the annual international gay pride parade in Jerusalem. “Israel has accepted upon itself to ensure the sanctity of the holy places in Jerusalem. As the city’s guardian, Israel cannot, in good faith, allow this parade to trample on the religious sensitivities of the city’s Muslim, Christian and of course Jewish residents,” Leo Giovinetti, an American pastor leading efforts to gather a million signatures on a petition against the summer parade, said Wednesday.
