    I created a cause to ask the US Government to stop foreign investment to countries that voted to make it ok to kill people because they are gay.

    Looks like tolerance is mostly popular in the west, not where the real population growth is happening.

    I would hope that after reading the list - the LGBT community will know where to (and not to) spend their travel money (or G-d forbid relocate to). icon_mad.gif

    good post man, I will make sure the countries that voted for do not get any tourist dollars from me or my network.

    Was pleasantly surprised India and Nepal opposed it icon_smile.gif

    Whats the deal with the other countries abstaining from this horrific issue? I'm very upset and embarrassed my own country is in that group.
    Nevertheless, thanks for the list; now I know where I should NOT travel or spend my dollars on.

    Interesting, I didn't know that. I assumed that they were a little more tolerant considering they get so much of their revenue from tourism. Alienation is a horrible business strategy - especially if you are in the tourism business.

    We should nuke them all and turn them into our bitches. Just like what we did to Japan and that worked out fine.

    The only country I worry about is China since it is the only country that has a chance of becoming the world power. The other countries are too busy trying to find food. "Lets kill that fag!!" "Ok, but I am starving can we hunt for food first?" "Ugh, fine"

    I doubt the Arab world needs food but they do need our Tourist Dollars and Euros icon_smile.gif Goodbye Dubai/Abu Dhabi (UAE), Bahrain and all of those filthy oil and tourist dependent countries.

    I am fairly certain China qualifies as a world power by now. I think as long as the US and Europe in particular remain on good terms in a diplomatic context, China will be hard pressed to go 'free wielding' in the world. China has more concerns in it's own back yard dealing with Taiwan, Japan, North Korea, and Russia. Nationalism, in a general context, is on a resurgent streak around the world, but it's especially prevalent in East Asia. I don't think China can afford to take its eye off the backyard so to speak.

    I meant THE world power, not a world power. The US is currently the world power based on GDP since thats the only thing that you can really quantify.

    I do not believe it is shocking to see India vote like this. India has made huge leaps forward in these past 10 years. There is even a movie coming out this year titled "Dunno y na jaane kyun" which is suppose to be India's brokeback mountain. Two years ago there was Dostana, which was more of a gay friendly movie. The country is making progress and extremely fast. Everyone likes to talk about China's progress but India's social progress surpasses that of China hands down.

    There must be more to this than meets the eye. South Africa?

    St. Lucia for one is a destination of the Atlantis Events Southern Carribbean cruise next summer. If this is indicative of their accpetance of gay people, we should probably have this port changed!

    oh look, its all the countries where we see people so desolate they've stopped caring about flies flying around their face and they use cow shit as mortar for their huts...
