Consuls of the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland and Portugal took part in the third gay “pride” parade in Greece’s second largest city, Thessaloniki. Reportedly, the event drew some 6,000 people.
U.S. Consul Robert P. Sanders carried a banner that read “Diplomats for Thessaloniki Pride.”
Diplomats joined this year because, according to AP, they “support diversity and freedom of choice.”
The march again was condemned by the local Orthodox church, whose leader, Bishop Anthimos, described it as a “promotion of perversion.”
Western nations as the United States, United Kingdom, Germany and Canada have the power to influence destiny of other nations, and they have chosen to use their power on behalf of homosexuality.
Innocent Christians have been slaughtered by Islamists in Syria, and no Western diplomats have marched to support their lives or carry banners that read “Let Syrian Christians live.”
On the contrary, Islamists who have been raping, torturing and killing Syrian Christians have received military support from the United States.
Apparently, the priority of Western diplomats is the sexual pleasure of those who live in homosexual vice, not the lives of Christians.
