A march of same-sex marriage opponents has kicked off in Tbilisi, Georgia.

Several hundred people have gathered near the concert hall in Tbilisi, protesting against the extremist propaganda of feminism and same-sex marriages.

Beka Tskhadadze, the protest organizer, said the residents of Georgia’s regions have also joined the traditional family defenders.

It should be noted that Catholicos-Patriarch of All Georgia, Ilia II announced May 17 the day of strong family and honoring parents.

Georgian orthodox church primate also blessed the priests to hold divine services at churches on May 17 at 12:00 (local time) and bless the houses, streets and families with the holy water.

The protest participants are heading towards the Holy Trinity Cathedral to attend the divine service there.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
