"... push their alternative lifestyle ..."

Gee ... where have we heard that before?

The hate, fear and bigotry of their religious lifestyle is the true threat of world peace - not two men living together.

Singapore is the closest thing to a literal fascist state since Franco's or Pinochet's, imo, if a bit more civilized in terms of not overtly torturing and disappearing people. So far as we know.

If China becomes like that it will be a huge improvement.

But i notice even in Taiwan and Hong Kong they have decriminalized sodomy but not gotten SSM legalized yet but Taiwan seems on the verge.

Well, it appears I just assumed that since "Location Hidden" is usually used by many bigots. If I'm wrong, please accept my apology. I do hope I was wrong. Was I?
