There's a rally on Wednesday here called "Stop the Hate, Start the Healing", which included this sentence.
this program is placed bang in the midst of everybody's anxieties about our nation's impending war against Iraq. It also happens to coincide with National Coming Out Week. Happy coincidences.
Happy indeed, particularly for Terrence McNally,
who faces a fatwa for depicting Jesus Christ as a homosexual. So what will they celebrate at the rally? The swearing in of an openly gay Member of the Knesset
? Or the PLO
, which persecutes gays
? Perhaps they could move the rally to a place that could use it.
