Disappointed with India for voting against gay rights: US

India did not officially say they were against it either. Their official reason is that they were against Ban Ki Moon's unilateral use of power. That shows even India finds it necessary to hide her prejudice.  (Mar 29, 2015 | post #4)

Arkansas to Appeal Federal Gay Marriage Ruling

Strange considering it was present in the rise and peak of Rome but was illegal in the latter period when Western Rome collapsed. Eastern Rome never was gay friendly but they still fell too. The Han Dynasty in China was the chinese equivalent of the Roman Empire and she was ruled by bisexuals and homosexual emperors. That was a golden age for China. The last emperors were not recorded as having male consorts but eventually it still collapsed. It's about as relevant to the fall of civilized society as the rising and setting of the sun. It was Gibbons who made the argument linking decadence to the fall of an civilization and he was regarded as wrong. Even if he was not refuted he did not say it was homosexuality. I'm not sure there is even any serious academic literature arguing that but rather it is an oft repeated truism that is often repeated and often debunked. Ignorant people like to parrot it as it gives them a justification for their prejudice and allows them to exaggerate the harm to apocalyptic levels to scare people.  (Dec 24, 2014 | post #10)

Florida gay rights groups vow legal fights if clerks deny...

The clerks in Florida are kind of damned if they do and damned if they don't. The legal counsel that they received from the firm on behalf of the clerks association issued that warning. That firm is also the one that got the adoption laws in FL changed to permit gay adoption so they are just giving the clerks a heads up of what could happen if they issue licences. That is due to the law Florida has and the AG and groups who want to make an example of them. They might not successfully convict the clerk but the legal costs alone should be something for them to think about. The New Mexico clerk who did that last year has $40k in legal fees that came from defending his case even though he was never convicted and the case was quite short since gay marriage was legalized shortly after. Even with fund raising he has still not recouped his costs. I don't think we can realistically expect clerks to bear that burden, that is probably more than their annual salary. At the same time if they don't they get sued by pro-gay marriage groups but in that case they might at least have the state legal defense team to represent them as no doubt Bondi will authorize that.  (Dec 23, 2014 | post #24)

I'm just saying the laws are superfluous for christians in those states. It's as if any law restricting christianity would pass by legislature or ballot.  (Dec 22, 2014 | post #53)
