Jerusalem's ultra-orthodox Jewish Mayor Uri Lupolianski says he is powerless to interfere as public events are licensed by the police, not City Hall.At a news conference Wednesday, California pastor Leo Giovinetti said hosting the 10-day World Pride event could bring divine retribution upon Jerusalem, citing the biblical story of Sodom and Gomorra as a precedent, according to Steve Weizman, writing for the Associated Press.Weizman says ultra-orthodox Israeli lawmaker Nissim Zeev hinted at more earthly troubles. "With demonstrations we never know how they end up," he said. "Residents here are enraged. Everything should be done to stop this [event] and not cause people to break the law."

If the Police licensed the "gayfest" wouldn't you begin to wonder if the Police are gay or a large portion of them?I know I would!
