SERBIA: Lesbian PM Attends Pride With Heavy Security

The Associated Press reports:

Serbia’s first-ever openly gay prime minister joined several hundred gay activists Sunday at a gay pride march that was held amid tight security in the conservative Balkan country.

Holding rainbow flags, balloons and a banner reading “For change,” pride participants gathered in Belgrade, the Serbian capital, before setting off on a march through the city. Many approached Prime Minister Ana Brnabic, greeting her and taking selfies.

“The government is here for all citizens and will secure the respect of rights for all citizens,” Brnabic told reporters. “We want to send a signal that diversity makes our society stronger, that together we can do more.”

Serbian riot police cordoned off the city center with metal fences early Sunday to prevent possible clashes with extremist groups opposed to the pride gathering. Right-wing activists gathered in a central area with banners but no incidents were reported.

    The ignorance and bigotry of homophobia is a direct result of the teachings of organized religion.

    Every church, temple and mosque ought to be taxed, both in the United States and in every country around the world.

    Maybe then we could truly feed the hungry, clothe the naked and house the homeless.

      I agree.
      Enough is enough with religious groups getting freebies.

      If religion was less profitable, it wouldn’t be pushed on the young with the same vigor by the grifting clergy. Religion might fade, science might rise.

          Beto is my representative. I would love to see him defeat Cruz. East Texas will be extremely hard to to defeat. Texas is gonna’ be Texas.
          He can get lots of votes in the cities. Except Midland/Odessa/Abilene areas. Those places are just plain nuts. I hate having to go there at all.

          Which is precisely why, although I dread the possibility of a xn takeover with all my heart and what’s left of my soul, I would like to see the shambles they’d be in after their first 6 months. It would make 45’s first 6 months look like a controlled bomb blast in comparison. “You can’t say that. WE are the One True Church and WE KNOW through Divine Revelation that THIS is what the Bible says.” “You’re full of it. Paul didn’t mean that…” “Clearly, you’re forgetting Elipticus 19:46. ‘Stone to death those who…'” “That’s such crap. You know full well that Hypocriticals 5:23 said that was then and this is now.” No, you’re wrong. Why, god told me just last night…” I can’t stand the idea of xns being officially in charge, but the reality of it would be worth the popcorn-in-bulk purchases. Cult 45 angers me; Frankie Graham vs Joel Osteen vs Jerry Falwell the younger vs Pat Robertson vs Jim Bakker vs Tony PerKKKins vs all the other Truly Religious would be a cage match to watch.

        that is why my husband and I gave to the Montrose center in Houston. We wanted to support our family members in need and not the haters.

        • TuuxKabin

          We did, too, for that very reason.

        What Texas needs is to have its statehood removed and be downgraded to a colony, so it may be properly administered by competent authority. It’s entire dung heap of accumulated laws and regulations needs to be shit-canned and rational and sensible laws put in place. Lastly, the churches need to be reined in and taxed on all their assets and income, except that which is spent on actual, documentable charitable works.

      Some comedian made the joke that if you wanted to have a REAL “Survivor” competition the contestants would have to drive a hybrid car through Texas with a bumper sticker that says “I’m gay and I’m here to take your guns.”
