Edit: This just came in from a friendly reader.  Here's an excerpt from a really poor article which tries to make the decent Christians of these Slavic countries look like monsters.  These Orthodox in the country of Georgia aren't weighted down by the moral languor of the West.  Homosexual acts were legalized in 2,000.  Unlike Putin's Moscow, Georgia unfortunately allows such disgraceful displays to take place.

LONDON, UK – Religious protesters have halted a small gay rights march in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi, leading to a fistfight and participants’ placards being smashed.
A few dozen marchers took part Thursday in the deeply religious, ex-Soviet nation’s first such demonstration, waving rainbow flags to mark the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.
They had gathered outside the Tbilisi state concert hall and were preparing to march towards parliament when activists led by Orthodox Christian priests confronted them and a scuffle broke out, according to the Associated Press.

Oh, goody! A new word to contemplate: "transphobia".


It must mean, literally, "an inordinate fear of transportation".

When was the last time you ever saw a Catholic priest in the USA hands on trying to teach at a teachable moment like this?
