"...but she said cultural differences do not excuse human rights violations...."
She is being diplomatic. A more honest way of saying it would be "some cultures are moral trash."

If Western countries started stoning homophobes would all these backwards countries chalk that up as a "cultural difference"?
Perhaps we need a pilot program to find out the answer for sure....

People who smoke weed tend to be younger and therefore tend to be more pro equality. As well as more mellow in most instances.

Yep, most folks who smoke weed are the live and let live type. Not sure why folks get so worked up about other people's private lives.
If people would have just minded their own business and not discriminate against other folks because they might be doing something at home in their own bedroom that is nobody else's business, then this debate about Gay Rights would never have had to come up. Civil Rights Apply to All!
But because a bunch of Fundies get their panties in a wad wondering who's taking off whose panties, we have to hash this crap out as if it were something brand new.
So Fundies, mind your own undies and STFU!
