Christian priests and nuns have staged a strange ceremony to ‘purify’ a city after a gay pride parade.
Hundreds of LGBT people and supporters marched through the Serbian capital city of Belgrade for the annual Pride Parade. They were protected by 5,000 police officers.
According to The Mirror, Christian priests and nuns attended the ceremony with protestors holding pictures of Jesus as well as crosses and banners which read, “Shame on you” and “Gay Shame Never in Public Life”.
One priest at the ceremony said, “Why do they have to go public and parade? Why? I’ll tell you why. They want to recruit and to spoil the next generations.”
The Christian demonstrators said prayers and gave speeches saying they needed to “purify” the city after the “Sodom and Gomorra” of the Pride Parade.
Although homosexuality is legal in the country, same-sex marriage is still not recognised.
