No room for heterosexual hanky-panky at Jerusalem gay parade protest

Do Orthodox rabbis hope to lure gays out of their pride and into the minyan? They're certainly working to ensure that their anti-gay protest won't feature embarassing heterosexual flirtations, according to Ynetnews:

The protests will centralize at two points, a massive prayer will be held along Jaffa St., from Zion Square all the way to the Davidka (for the men) while the women will hold their corresponding prayer along Ben-Yehuda St.

Am I the only one who thinks that the Rabbis running the protests are making it easier for the evil gay people to pick up new recruits? Too funny......

What we should do is go to kibbutzim across Israel with Lubavitch revival tanks, park on the lawn in front of the communal dining room and start preaching the Rebbe's Torah.

Jordan Hirsch -- you need to do something about that spasmic hand...

So do I go to Rechov Yaffo in order to recruit, or do I go to Machane Yehuda and hit on the ladies?

Here’s a letter that’s being sent around to various Jerusallem shuls opposing the violence that is being encouraged to take place at the Gay Pride Parade next Friday. I’m not sure which congregations are signing, some of them just got it tonight, but I do know that Kehilat Yedidya is signing (I’m on the board and confirmed this with one of the co-chairs over Shabbat). I’m also not sure where it will appear, but I assume it will be in one or more Israeli newspaper.

I couldn’t find it online anyplace but at the below link. It’s only in Hebrew, but basically iit says that we condemn the calls for violence.
