    I uh, saw this lady at the mall today with firey red hair, I guess she was a goth chic, but she had an inverted crucifix necklace and a huge pentagram tattooed on her chest. She was wearing a slinky black thing with a plunging neck line paired with skinny jeans. I thought that was an interesting combination: it worked on her. She was pushing a baby carriage so I guess she won't be force feeding him christianity like my mother did to me...she'd be interested in this I bet. I'd be interested to see the father of that baby. I wonder if she wore black to the wedding. Plainly put, I find what her life must be like interesting.....I wouldn't dare inquire.

    I think the lesson is, before you take anything for granted (civil liberty) be sure to know who your friends and enemies are. Network with your friends (like this group in Hong Kong has done) and get to work immediately if a threat arises. The Christian Right is attempting to create theocracies everywhere.

    The Christian Right has done their homework, too. They understand the power of obfuscation and hyperbole to persuade ordinary citizens to overreact to things as benign as gay rights.

    RealJock has many Christians but very few Christian Rightists. I think ours is a good watchdog network, and does good outreach to larger networks (like Facebook & Yahoo! Groups).

    As a pround Atheist I applaud.

    Interestingly, of the asian countries, there seem to be a lot of converts in South Korea in recent years on the other hand.

    Well, as a Christian that is NOT a right wing lunatic, I'm glad the organization of that many people worked. I hope it sends a message to the right wings that they can't just trample people and I hope the participation by some Christians sends a message that having Christian faith does not mean you're a right wing Christian fanatic.

    OK, you can all pick yourselves up off the floor. As much as I defend Christianity on this site, this kind of story gives me hope for being gay and being a Christian.
