This is what the gay rights issue SHOULD be about- No one should live in fear.
It's ludicrous that people in any country can still be killed by their own
governments just for being gay.I applaud Obama's efforts to
encourage gay rights worldwide. It's time for these countries to get
serious about protecting the civil rights of their citizens.
@ amazondoc:Please! This isn't about civil rights.
@worf"Please! This isn't about civil rights."Of course it is. Some countries still have the DEATH PENALTY for
homosexuals. How is that NOT about civil rights??
If it's civil rights, why do we send them billions of dollars, and support
@worf --"If it's civil rights, why do we send them billions
of dollars, and support their laws?"The US sends money to LOTS
of countries, even those whose laws we don't always agree with, for many
different reasons. We'd have to look at this particular issue country by
country in order to answer your question.
Pathetic how we depend on government to define marriage, and changed the word
rationalization to civil rights.
@worf --Now now, worf Don't be bitter just because the Supreme
Court ruled against DOMA.Even if you don't support gay
marriage, any person of good faith should agree that penalizing homosexuality
with a DEATH SENTENCE is waaaaay beyond the boundaries of civilized society.
