JERUSALEM — Jerusalem’s ultra-Orthodox deputy mayor plans to march 50 donkeys through the streets of the Holy City to coincide with a gay pride parade on Thursday, his office said.
“This expresses what we think — that this is a beastly act,” Rabbi Yitzhak Pindrus, who represents the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism party on the city council, told the Ynet news website.
His spokesman Menahem Zaide declined to link the donkey march to the parade, saying only: “Donkeys also have rights to be recognised as couples.
“We are in favour of donkey rights,” he told AFP.
So basically, they’re replicating NOM’s bus tour with animals.
