    With all the serious crap they have to deal with, this is what they decide to hone in on? What's in the water over there?

    Your roads are full of potholes?
    We're sorry, your politicians have more important things to worry about.

    It's a sign of unity...with other homophobes.

    Latin America, Catholicism...now on the progressive side of history. Eastern Europe in a race to the 12th century. Good luck with that.

    But it's exactly because everything is going to the shit hole they pull stunts like that.

    Its a way politicians used to stay in power dispute their incompetence since ages of the past.

    You might ask the same question of US Republicans, at State & Federal level. Who ignore urgent economic problems to obsess instead on suppressing gay civil rights, and on limiting women's reproductive rights. Someone please explain THAT one.

    What's going to happen for next years Eurovision? The gayest thing on television every year. Both Russia and Armenia participate, hope it won't be a domino effect. I can see Azerbaijan following suit! icon_eek.gif

    That does surprise me a little. My best friend's doctor was Armenian and most of his staff were as well...in LA County. They all knew that we were gay and they had no problem with it. In fact some of them we considered friends, went out to dinner with them, exchanged gifts, etc. I'm limited to knowing them through the health care industry. Maybe that makes a difference.

    Well you know. America is the worlds largest Christian country, that is also keeping christianity alive around the world, and that not about to change anytime soon.

    After all even in Obama's words: America is one nation under God.
