Rabbi Close to Religious Extremists in Israeli Gov’t says Gay Speaker “Diseased,” attracting “Evil” on People

Sama al-Akhbariyya says that the Jerusalem chief rabbi, Schlomo Amar, formerly the chief rabbi for all of Israel, on Sunday called Ohana’s selection “unbearable” and an “abomination,” insisting that gays should not be allowed to occupy “important positions.” “Woe unto the ears that hear of it,” he lamented. Amar also lambasted the religious Zionists in the coalition of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for betraying their principles in this way, saying that “they have lost the ability to blush.” He argued that at least the Ultra-Orthodox or Haredim in the Knesset should have stopped Ohana from becoming speaker. He said that in the past this was a huge source of shame. He warned that “Sins are attracting evil to the Israeli people.” In the past Amar has called gay pride parades “processions of wild animals.”
