Police say about 50 people threw eggs and plastic bottles of water at about 400 people holding a gay pride parade in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki.

Police moved in to restrict the attackers on Saturday, but no injuries were reported. In recent days, Anthimos, the senior Greek Orthodox cleric in Thessaloniki, had publicly criticized the planned gay pride parade. Anthimos, who only uses one name, is known for outspoken speeches on social and political issues.

    That isn't Greek pride, that's gay pride, don't confuse the two!

    This post is entirely misleading. Yes, there was a Gay Pride event in Thessaloniki attended by about 400 hundred people. And yes, there were about 50 people there protesting the event. But police were there to quell any violence and NO injuries were reported.

    The photos above are NOT from Greece. The first one was taken in the Ukraine, the second in St. Petersburg and the third in Moscow. And the photo next to the title of this post is also from Russia.

    In the interest of honesty and integrity, these images should be removed.

    Considering the sign in the last picture is in Russian and not Greek, I’d say Pythias is right. And if I’m not mistaken, the golden dome in the background looks like Saint Isaac’s Cathedral in St. Petersburg.

    Some Christians they are. I don't think it says anywhere in the bible that God gave approval for them to be strompin on the gays.

    obviously you dont read your Bible it actually says to kill homosexuals

    Leviticus 20:13: "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death

    and to kill Pagans and Witches and Kill Athiests and kill people who have one eye one color and one eye another color and to kill women who dont listen to thier husband and kill your kids and pretty much 1,000 other reasons to kill people

    actually it says thou shall not murder another hebrew

    meant anyone else was okay

    Which Moses broke as soon as he came off the mountian when he found people worshipping egyptian Goddess Hathor ( cow Goddess )

    he didnt tell them the commandments he just killed them

    I recently acquired what is supposed to be a copy of the first of the ten commandments as they were reported to be given to Moses..

    The wordings are as follows and one can see how they changed over the centuries....
    The Deuteronomists ignored the Yahwists decalogue and used ..Yahweh spoke those words from the middle of the flames and the steam and the volcanic ash.. The he engraved them on two tablets and gave them to me (Deut. 5:22 The decalogue that preceded those words 5:7-21 were as Follows..

    1. you are to admit no foreign gods into where I gaze.. (there had to be other gods)
    2. You are not to make yourself carved representations of any shape found in the skies above or in the land below or in the water on which the land floats, and Kowtow in homage before them and honour them. (No craven images)
    3. you are not to swear in Yahweh your Gods' name that which is false.
    4. You are to slave for 6 days completing all of yur chores, But the seventh day is Yahweh your gods' seventh, your're not to do any chores..
    5. Worship your father and your mother so that you will live a long time and prosper...
    6. You are not to Retsakh (Kill a Fellow jew.) (No mention of anyone else)
    7. You are not to Naf,,(ejaculate sperm in the wife of a fellow jew)
    8. You awre not to Goniv (rob a fellow Jew)

    How odd - the Greeks haven't reacted like in the past - maybe it is the economic sink hole they are in and tensions are very high

    Ugly but I would not come out in Greece or any Mediterranean country. It's not were tolerance is noted. It's not good.

    I don't doubt that but Greece has lots of problems right now. As you know when things get heavy women & gays are the first to get kicked to the curb.
