      Love without Borders: Jerusalem WorldPride 2005

      On August 18-28 2005, Jerusalem will be the site of WorldPride 2005.
      The 22nd annual conference of InterPride, held in October 2003 in
      Montreal, Canada, voted to accept the bid of the Jerusalem Open House
      to host WorldPride 2005 in the Holy City. Jerusalem, often these days
      a city of conflict and pain, will have in this event the chance to
      send out to the world a message of solidarity, human rights and
      peace.

      An online petition supporting this event is at:

      Some antigay groups are trying to stop the event. The American Family
      Association carried an article yesterday, about reaction to WorldPride
      2005:

      Christian Group Runs Petition Drive to Stop WorldPride 2005
      Leader Believes Homosexual Pride Event Would Desecrate Jerusalem
      By Chad Groening
      March 23, 2005

      (AgapePress) - A Christian leader feels the city of Jerusalem will be
      subjected to "a moral outrage" if a planned 10-day event known as
      WorldPride 2005 goes forward as planned. If it does take place, the
      event will bring some 250,000 homosexuals to the holy city in a
      celebration of their lifestyle.

      Mike Evans is founder of the Jerusalem Prayer Team, a group that is
      trying to gather one million signatures for a petition aimed at
      convincing the Israeli city to stop the event from taking place in
      that spiritually significant venue.
