Ian O'Doherty: He admits it -- he's a hardliner
This column has come in for some stick in the past and apart from the usual mad threats from religious types -- it's amazing how many of these poor, superstitious fools seem to have missed that whole bit about 'forgiveness' in their Bible -- the rest of the hate mail tends to come from furious gay people who didn't like being slagged for their more outrageous behaviour.
But they might be better served having a pop at the Mayor of Moscow, who is not a fan of gay pride parades.
Eastern Europe wouldn't be exactly renowned for its tolerance of the gay lifestyle and, according to Mayor Yury Luzhkov: "A gay pride parade cannot be called anything but a Satanic act. We haven't permitted such a parade and we won't permit one in the future."
