    Bulgarian extremists attack gay parade with rocks

    Extremists throwing rocks, bottles and gasoline bombs have attacked the Bulgarian capital's first gay pride parade.
    Police say they prevented the extremists from harming the 150 or so people in the procession through Sofia. No serious injuries have been reported.
    Police say they detained about 60 people for harassing the parade participants.
    Gays face widespread hostility in Bulgaria and opposition to Saturday's parade has been fierce. The far-right Bulgarian National Union had called for "open resistance" to the gay pride parade with a campaign featuring posters that say: "Be Intolerant, Be Normal."
    Bulgaria's influential Orthodox Church said the march should be banned as it undermines the country's Christian traditions.

    But Europeans are so tolerant and progressive. Much more so than we are.

    This is Bulgaria. You get less progressive attitudes in the former communist countries in general. Things are slowly changing though.

    My comment was sarcastic; I know they're not all that progressive, particularly in eastern Europe. Sure, some European countries have legalized gay marriage but so have some US states, and we usually don't hear about the homophobic counter-protests. The word "propaganda" can be used to accurately describe even some western European media output.
