For the record, here is the published opinion of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef and Rabbi Yosef Sholom Elyashiv on next week’s Gay Pride parade:
Lithuanian ultra-Orthodox leader Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv and Sephardic ultra-Orthodox leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef will call for protest against "the evil mob seeking to defile the holy city of Jerusalem." They call on "every Jew who fears for the dignity of his holy Torah and the dignity of the holy city of Jerusalem to protest against the abomination in the holy city in particular and the holy land in general."
Note that neither rabbi wrote "peaceably protest." This is akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater. You have many public calls for violence against gays, issued from Orthodox circles, including haredi circles. To label gays "the evil mob seeking to defile the holy city of Jerusalem," is clear incitement to murder unless nonviolence is strongly stressed together with that statement. These rabbis know this well, yet did not temper their words.
And then, this:
…[R]abbis, including Eda Haredit rabbinical court head Rabbi Yitzhak Tuvia Weiss, call for demonstrations next Friday and doing everything possible to prevent the parade. They warn of "evil plots that the evil, impure and sinful people are scheming to defile and desecrate the holy city of Jerusalem with abomination and ugliness."
Yesterday anti-gay activist Rabbi Yehuda Levin landed in Israel claiming to represent U.S. rabbis who seek to prevent the parade. He was warmly welcomed in extreme Jerusalem circles and met with Eda Haredit leaders. Levin said he targets not just the parade but the "homosexual threat" and against the activities of parade-organizer Jerusalem Open House. "A large population wants to fight efforts to make our society homosexual," he said.…
Jews will die, God forbid, because of the words of these evil men.
