    Well, this gives me a clearer picture of which countries are safe to visit and support.

    This_Map_Shows_The_Global-336ad01912f8b0

    Here is the interesting part:
    As Pew noted in an article explaining the findings of the survey last year, there is a broad split here — richer, less religious countries tend to accept homosexuality, while the poorer, more religious countries tend to reject it.

    Religion and Poverty, not to mention stupid illiterate people are the worst disease.

    BS, its 2 to 1 for, not bad odds at all.


    Considering America is one of if not the most rich and has the most amount of white people it should be better than being "not bad"

    You guys are the bottom of the developed world, the only countries less tolerant than you guys are third world nations.

    The most intolerant of the tolerant.


    Not according to the World Factbook list.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_World_Factbook_list_of_developed_countries

    South Korea, Japan, Greece, and Israel are considered developed and according to this graph they answered "no" more than the United States.

    Considering that we are much larger than most of the countries listed, the number for the United States is not bad. I expect it to improve over time.

    Those countries aren't especially "impressive"

    All four have weird unique cultures that are protected by racist xenophobic governments.

    You're slightly more tolerant than them, go America.


    I was just pointing out an easily dispellable claim. icon_smile.gif

    I find all of those countries impressive and unique.

    The United States can be said to have "weird unique cultures that are protected by racist xenophobic governments". There's enough evidence to make an argument for that claim.

    It's all about perspective.

    I will let America pass because it has a larger population and because persons might not accept homosexuality, doesn't mean they will harm a gay person. You have to take into account America is still synonymous with gay rights.

    It doesn't matter on the size of the population that's not how ratios work

    A country of 4 - 2 votes for/ 2 votes against = 1/2

    A country of 300 - 150 votes for/ 150 votes against= 1/2

    Should not all the anglosphere countries get together and form some sort of global alliance? US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand.

    I mean, I think that would be great and a very powerful force to be reckoned with when it comes to causes that are of our interest like human rights laws, etc.

    kiwiLifter saidInteresting how Spain and Philippines are very pro gay and Poland is the opposite, while all three are heavily Catholic.icon_question.gif

    Yes, I agree. I wonder where Ireland would fit in this mix? Would it be more on the side of the UK and Spain given it's proximity to those countries or would it align more with Poland...

    Culturally, Spain and the Philippines are more westernized by some standards, whereas Poland is more traditional and not westernized.

    This country was originally settled by a bunch of radical fringe Christians. That influence is still with us today.

    Israel is ethnic cleaning to prevent ethnic jews from becoming the minority, Greece is a toilet, and the Japanese are evil to even towards the prospect of having too many koreans being in their country, did you not read about all the racist attacks in Tokyo against korean enclaves?



    Let's just put it this way. The United States is at the bottom when we use YOUR measurement.

    I wouldn't be surprised the ones who say 'no' in the survey in North America and Europe are immigrants from the same homophobic countries.

    There are plenty of states in the United States with predominate native born White populations that are against gay marriage.

    Like Hitlers plans to unite the german speaking peoples?

    EDIT: Also, Ireland is kind of between the two extremes still, the british gang fucking us like the russians gangfucking poland has left us still slightly conservative and bipolar, but we are changing fast.

    Ireland is a pretty irrelevant place on the global stage, so....who gives a fuck about them.

    I was referring to more important countries like the UK, US Canada, Australia and New Zealand. U know.... real countries.

    The list misses like half of the world's countries. I wonder if American scientists did it.

    Notice how the question is should we ACCEPT homosexuality

    Acceptance is difference than tolerance

    It means those countries know the truth about homosexuality.
