Russian Court Bars Gay Pride Parade in Moscow

A Russian court on Friday barred a gay pride parade in Moscow. The court upheld the decision of Moscow authorities who had banned the holding of the parade. It is reported that the Mayor of Moscow felt the march would provoke protests that would lead to public disturbances.  It is also reported that Russia's Muslims, Russia's Chief Rabbi, and the leaders of the Russian Orthodox Church have expressed their opposition to the parade.  Source.
