go avi, go binyamin!

i know i have posted this picture before, but with the news this week that my liebling and his boy are legal spouses in israel, well, here they are again under the chuppah!

here are some news reports with details:

the jerusalem post
yahoo uk

on the other hand, there are plenty of angry voices against this. i post this as an example mainly because right after the report on the roses is one equating 'sodomites' and 'islamists'.

all i can say is that while we have free speech in this country, people with the beliefs demonstrated on the linked site fill me full of RAGE. not very loving, i know, but then r. hillel taught "what is hateful to you do not do to other people", not 'love your neighbour as yourself'.
