Anti-Gay Activist Argues For Right To March in Chicago

Preaching Against Pride

Gay Pride’s all about celebrating diversity. And Los Angeles-based anti-gay preacher Ruben Israel thinks his views should be allowed to protest in Chicago’s upcoming gay pride event.

An angry Israel declares:

We are a group that has a different sexual preference and being that this parade is filled with diversity, we considered ourselves welcomed. And we were wrong… [Gay Pride organizers] become dictators and force acceptance of their agenda. I wish to expose this hypocrisy as a double standard for we also love a man, too, and His name is Jesus Christ.

That Jesus dude sure is popular…

Chicago Pride spokesman, meanwhile, Richard Pfeiffer claims queers have the legal right to exclude Israel and his peers, “We, the gay folk, have the right to exclude them from the parade.”

Defending Israel’s right to protest, his lawyer says they are now considering a lawsuit against Chicago Pride. Like so many conservatives, the main crux of Israel’s argument stems not from freedom of assembly, but gays so-called attack on freedom of religion:

The real world if these people ever take over will be more of a dictatorship. Freedom of speech no longer exists. Freedom of religion no longer exists. You’ve offended me. I want to shut you down.

We’re sorry, Mr Israel. We’re confused. You want the right to march, but you also want to “shut down” Chicago Pride. If you do that, you’ll be marching by yourself, because all the homos will be barred from their own parade. Then it’ll just be your parade. That’s not very diverse, now is it?

    Let him march and arm the crowd with tomatoes

    Is that an extension cord with two ‘female’ ends? That’s his proof that God hates homosexuals? I feel a great swell of pity for his small-mindedness.

    These are the people who relish a fight, and the moment they get hit with something, they become martyrs in their minds.

    Can anyone tell me why that dipshit is holding an extension cord?

  • nycstudman

    Let them march and ignore them. who cares?

    What a foolish hypocrite. The man claims the right to participate in the name of diversity and then holds a huge sign that reads “We hate you”. What abuse.

  • chicagonerd

    What I’m concerned about is that if he were allowed to march, he would not be ignored.

    In fact, his presence in the parade would distract so much from the celebration of our broad community and its accomplishments in gaining rights and social acceptance, it wouldn’t surprise me if the parade just becomes about him, or that the area that he’s in becomes unruly to a point of near-violence.

    I mean, even if he’s denied, I’m likely to have signs ready if I see him to try and get under his skin too…

    Here are my ideas so far:

    “Ruben: You look like a natural leather daddy with that beard!”

    Or, if he’s doing the stupid extension cord “these two male plugs don’t fit together” thing, “Ruben: My boyfriend has a hole that’s compatible with my plug.”

    Clearly I’m in the early stages here.

  • Bibleman

    Ruben is holding this cord to show the perverts how things work male and female go together male and male wont plug in

  • Queer Supremacist

    This is one Israel whose right to exist I do not support.

    @Bibleman: If Gawd had wanted men and women to be together he would have made them the same.

    What’s that? He didn’t actually make them? Well, whaddya know!

    BTW, what was it like sucking Scott Baio’s dick when you were on on Charles In Charge?
