    It's great to see a kid standing up against the hideous homophobia that religions like Christianity and Islam bring to the world. I doubt he's actually blocking them, but the image is powerful. Freedom rules!

    What a great kid. For someone so young to understand the bigotry and act against it with his own free will... tremendous.

    I'm sure this will be in a "Photographs that Shoot the World" book in the not-so-distant future.

    He didn't stop them, they moved him out the way and continued. There's nothing that brave about it, unless you believe these anti-gay protesters would kill the boy over something like this.

    It's the power of the photo that matters.

    There are incidents where similar anti gay protests in other countries have led to violence.
