TBILISI, Georgia (AP) Thousands of anti-gay protesters, including Orthodox priests, occupied a central street in Georgia's capital Friday, with some threatening to lash with nettles any participant in a gay pride parade which was to take place there.

Police in Tbilisi guarded several dozen gay activists and bused them out of the city center shortly after they arrived at the gathering.

The U.S. government, as well as all of its agencies, are PROMOTERS of the worldwide Gay Agenda, not just “supporters” thereof.

Tbilisi is 50 miles east of Atlanta, right?

No idea. That's how the local press reported it.

Haha. She IS. Obama has all his foreign diplomats promoting homosexuality in foreign countries.

In my book, such parades violate public decency and could constitute sexual harassment if a child saw it.
It’s good to see Georgians give a damn about their country. Perhaps they can pass anti-propaganda laws like Russia did. Cut the head off the snake.

It’s a good thing you explained which Georgia. The Arizona Republic thinks this Georgia has an Atlanta in it.

I were afraid that too many people would have been disappointed once they've learned that was about the wrong Georgia.

The current US Ambassador to Georgia is Richard Norland. Though it may have been his wife, Mary Hartnett.

http://georgia.usembassy.gov/ambbio.html

Importantly, this guy has a serious bio, including assignments as Political Officer at the U.S. Embassy, Moscow; International Affairs Advisor/Deputy Commandant at the National War College; U.S. Ambassador to Uzbekistan; Deputy Chief of Mission at the American Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan; Deputy Chief of Mission in Riga, Latvia; and Director for European Affairs at the National Security Council, etc., including the Middle East and South Africa.

Importantly, he also worked at the huge, $100m intelligence gathering center in northern Afghanistan at Mazar-e-Sharif, (that spies on Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and China. Spook central.)

Even though he's an old guy these days, when Nettles lashes you with his bat, it will hurt.

The source I sited in the 1st comment called the Deputy Chief of Mission Bridget Brink an "acting ambassador". Probably they made a translation mistake.

If she was the U. S. Ambassador’s wife chances are she is a homosexual agenda supporter.

to lash with stinging neddles

neddles = nettles....

Boy...are they disappointed.....

Stinging Nettles are very nutritional.....

good for improving the circulation on stiff muscles and arthritus....

Collect the tops (carefully) and dry in the sun....powder the dried leaves and use in soups and salads.

Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica and the closely related Urtica urens) has a long medicinal history. In medieval Europe, it was used as a diuretic (to rid the body of excess water) and to treat joint pain.

Stinging nettle has been used for hundreds of years to treat painful muscles and joints, eczema, arthritis, gout, and anemia. Today, many people use it to treat urinary problems during the early stages of an enlarged prostate (called benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH), for urinary tract infections, for hay fever (allergic rhinitis), or in compresses or creams for treating joint pain, sprains and strains, tendonitis, and insect bites.

Well, imagine how the homos would react to an attempted hetero-pride parade.

Having run into many nettles in the Pacific Northwest, the ones there have no barbs. They don’t need them, either.
