Money Changers in the Temple: Tel Aviv redefines itself as Gay Capital of the World

Just over a week ago, the first homosexual couple in France visited Tel Aviv, Israel. Followed by the media, and invited to gay pride events in the city, they have become part of Tel Aviv's marketing towards homosexual tourists.

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL (Catholic Online) - Just over a week ago, François Hollande signed a law which utterly destroyed the concept of marriage as it was known in France since medieval times. Under the law, two individuals of the same sex may now call themselves "married."
Vincent Autin, 40, and Bruno Boileau, 29, were the first homosexual couple to get married under the new law. For their honeymoon, they visited Israel.
The media followed the couple as though they were celebrities. They were invited to the opening event of Tel Aviv's Gay Pride Month. In honor of the event, the pillars on the Old City Hall were lit up in rainbow colors with trance music blaring from speakers.
Cities around the world are beginning to realize that there is a lot of money to be made catering to homosexuals. Now in a twist of irony, a city in the holiest land in the world, is tweaking its image to attract gays and lesbians from around the globe.
The defilement of the Old City Hall, and the appointment of two Frenchmen as honorary Gay Pride ambassadors, shows that the money changers have returned to the Temple. In fact, Tel Aviv is often referred to as the "global gay capital."
The couple told reporters they were invited to the city, despite the fact that Israel itself retains as lawful the only true definition of marriage, which is between one man and one woman. Nonetheless, the city is cashing in on sweeping gains made by the small, yet extraordinarily militant and vocal, homosexual equivalency movement.
The attitude seems to be "if you can't beat them, join them." Certainly there is money to be made from catering to that segment.
Conversely, cities and states that resist the redefinition of marriage by a militant minority, risk being villainized and labeled as "intolerant." This, for simply refusing others the moral excess of redefining words to mean whatever is convenient for themselves.
Franz Kafka once wrote a cautionary parable about this sort of thing entitled, "Leopards in the Temple."
"Leopards break into the temple and drink to the dregs what is in the sacrificial pitchers; this is repeated over and over again; finally it can be calculated in advance, and it becomes a part of the ceremony," Kafka wrote.
With the conversion of Tel Aviv into the "gay capital of the world" we can see the fulfillment of Kafka's prophetic warning.
