World war on gays

Sullivan, Andrew

Advocate;4/11/2006, Issue 960, p80
The article discusses controversies pertaining to gay issues. It describes an event that has taken place in Moscow, Russia. The chief rabbi did make remarks in support of threats by the chief mufti, the most powerful Muslim figure in Moscow. A gay pride march was refused a permit by the city and religious fascism shut it down. Right now, gays around the world are up against many terrifying forces of religious fundamentalism. In the U.S., the gay movement seems stuck in petty domestic loathing of President George W. Bush.
