The UN reversed it's vote on "It's not OK to murder the gay". For some reason links are not working now - copy and paste this web address :http://www.towleroad.com/2010/12/breaking-un-votes-to-restore-sexua...

damn tha's awkward. I hope they fix it. Anyway, first DADT, now this. What next, Obama brings his boyfriend to the State of the Union address?

@ Sentient Biped

 

And of course you are right, any end to discriminatory practices is to be welcomed.

 

My post was pointed more towards the irony contained within the Law of Unintended Consequences

 

(i.e Vote for Gay Marriage, get Gay-Mother-in-Laws)

 

;^)

DADT may be limited to knowing or disclosing.
But what about actual acts of sodomy under US Uniform Military Code?

Uniform Code of Military Justice

ART. 125 of the UCMJ-SODOMY

(a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the
same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration , however slight, is sufficient to
complete the offense.
(b) Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.

Richard,

I get your point, and it's valid.  I don't agree with all of the military intervertions or actions myself, although I'm not 100% pacifist and I am in fact a veteran.  I have been against the Iraq war from the start, and consider it part of the corruption of the Bush / Cheney regime.  I have mixed feelings about the war in Afganistan but am not happy abour that either. 

 

However, the ongoing discrimination against LGBT people is part of the larger picture of expressing our inferiority, poor character, that others feel contaminated by our presence.  I think that being equally at risk or involved in military is part of being a full citizen.  I understand if you disagree and respect your view.

woo -hoo! Now we can be blown up needlessly in someone else's country for spectacularly little reason... wait... what?

Comment by Daniel W on December 18, 2010 at 3:22pm

Posted in Atheist News because it's relevant to all - but it looks like DADT is history. 

 

Finally, US Politicians have reluctantly followed the American People and voted to allow LGB (I don't know about transgendered people) to be open about their orientation as they risk their lives and die in defense of the country that won't give them equal rights.

The world is changing. Last of the Chinese You Tube videos, then we can get back to DADT, same sex marriage, hypocritical homophobic gay ministers, the impending gay Holocaust in Africa, and politicians.

Second part of our Chinese Lesbian celebrity theme.  I suppose we could come up with as many American movies on similar themes?

One last video for today.  China of course is nonchristian, nonmuslim, and during the cultural revolution was both atheistic and homophobic.  Now the country is open to religion, as long as the religion does not threaten the state.  Same gender relationships are also becoming more accepted.

There are all kinds of heros in all kinds of places.
