    "They are productive of evil, and evil only, without any corresponding good (in accordance with) the God of nature."

    Look up what that quote was referring to if you want; or don't.

    Because African leaders are incapable of developing their OWN ideas, right?

    - - - Updated - - -

    So Nigerians are "90% conservatives"? Who knew?

    The people of Nigeria seem to understand the government's reasoning; they support it by about 90%.

    Apparently , they don't buy the "Race = Sexual Behavior" BULLCRAP, either.

    Except for the fact that the ONLY "proof" of your claims about these being "conservative judges" subverting the proven Will of the People, is YOU SAYING SO, IOW, your standard "proof" for anything.

    Back up your claims about these judges..or retract it. Rule #10.

    Now, get ready for " I already did"....the Default Claim Post that fools no one.

    We can ALL read the thread to this point..der...

    - - - Updated - - -

    Except that NO MAJORITY of Americans has EVER voted for a "gun ban"unlike GAY MARRIAGE BANS< which DOZENS of MAJORITY(s) of Americnas have voted for.

    Nigeria is trying to slow the HIV/AIDS plague. Period.

    No one is "confused" about the highest risk demographic.

    Disengenuous much?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Over half of the MSM with HIV/AIDs in the US, are UNAWARE of their OWN INFECTIONS. Please explain how "consent" protects them from further spreading the deadly disease?

    Because African muslims are all about "gay rights", right?

    Of course, being a leftist, you lack the COURAGE to dare to mention the isloamist view of homosexuality, er usual, and choose to attack the "easy target", Christians.

    I don't see how this changes anything. I wasn't saying that the government was doing this arbitrarily without authorization from its population.

    They are trying to take significant action to stem a DEADLY DISEASE.

    Just pretending it isn't there, isn't working.

    They have a pretty good idea of where the CYCLE of HIV infections starts, and it is with men having sex with other men, who then spread it through the heteroseuxal population, by infecting women.

    They are TRYING TO SLOW IT OR STOP IT. Who can blame them?

    Perhaps you should contact the Nigerians, who are clearly UNAWARE of your Much Greater Expertise about how to combat HIV/AIDS in their nation.

    The "let's pretend we don't know where it gets started" bullcrap is really working great in the US, too, isn't it?
    Do I need to post the Center for Disease Control's SHOCKING DEMOGRAPHIC FACTS about HIV/AIDS in the US, again?



    You can spare us the ridiculous attempt to DODGE THE FACTS of the MATTER, with your Plea of the Eternal Victim.

    I guess your solution would be do deal with a medical issue by locking people in prison like the Africans are trying to do.

    So, his being a 4th rate politician had no bearing on his elevation to sainthood within the homosexual community?

    His claim to fame

    He had homosexual sex with men and boys
    He worked to try and make having homosexual sex appear to be more than what it really is
    He was killed by an unbalanced person

    People are killed each year by unbalanced/crazed people yet we don't create local holidays for them so the murder of Milk can't really be the reason

    People work to protect the moral fabric of society each year and holidays aren't created for them so the volunteer work can't really be the reason

    So it brings us down to one thing about Harvey Milk, how he had sex. he engaged in sex differently than the super majority in this country.

    If Harvey Milk did not choose the homosexual lifestyle would his murder have been treated any differently than other murder victims?

    It's a BEHAVIOR ISSUE.

    I believe prosecuting people who knowingly have unprotected sex with anyone, while infected with the HIV virus, is a tremendous idea, that we should start in in the US anon.

    Would save a LOT of gay men,and people who know gay men.

    That's already the case in the US, but the laws in Uganda and Nigeria make no distinction for people have unprotected sex, or sex at all for that matter. Simply stating that one is gay is enough to land someone in prison. In Uganda, knowing someone is gay and not reporting on them can send you to jail.

    These are the fascist laws you are showing support for.

    vaugh walker appointed by Reagan, case record shows conservative judgements.

    same with Utah federal judge, though appointed by Obama, he is still a republican.




    then you know you probably shouldn't jump in at this point, because you're only going to get embarrassed.

    Actually, views on homosexuality vary dramatically by culture.

    Marriage has also changed numerous times.

    Marrying for "romantic love", for example, is a relatively recent phenomenon.

    For much of history, arranged marriages were the norm, and they were almost purely economic.

    So, contrary to traditionalists, marriage is anything but an unchanging institution. Even in the Bible, the union changed depending on the culture. Polygamy, for example, was acceptable in many cultures and still is in some.
