In a declaration surprising to no one, Trump pledges to bring hate to a state near you.

Trump Promises State Sanctioned Religious Discrimination

[entire article]

Trump promises to support religious based discrimination against LGBT people if elected president.


In a little noticed press release issued late last week Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump pledged his support for the First Amendment Defense Act, which would explicitly authorize discrimination against LGBT people.


In the statement, issued September 22 and titled “Issues Of Importance To Catholics,” Trump promises to protect sincerely held religious beliefs, even if that means sanctioning discrimination against LGBT people and others.

Growing up gay in Communist China - not bad per this author.

Ning emigrated about 30 years ago, mainly due to persecution. I should add that when I lived in Indiana about the same time, local police were entrapping gay men, arresting them and publishing their names in the newspaper, the University chancellor at Purdue, where I was a grad student, reassured students' families that there were no gays in his university, there were mysterious murders, my friends received death threats, and AIDS was killing many of my friends and associates. sometimes, it gets better.

Daniel, I think you're right - being gay is just a polarity reversal at some fundamental level. It's nothing for anyone to get their knickers in a wad over.

Although Mr. Amalaha's scientific conclusions are bogus, there should be a Nobel prize for thinking outside the box. Kind of like a Darwin Award for intelligence.

Oh, the guy was a chemical engineer. I
Back when the earth was young and Fred Flintstone was in diapers, I decided it would be fun somehow to infuse my microbiology phd plan with a hefty dose of chemical engineering. I'm sure that added a year to my program, and didn't benefit me in any tangible way. The point here is, I'm not surprised that a chem engineer student came up with that analysis. The ones I knew were a pretty clueless bunch about most things that didn't include slide rules or pocket protectors. I even knew a gay one. He was not liked or accepted by his engineering fellow students, even though he was as geeky as they were. Ah the good old days.

The thing about being gay is your magnetic pole gets reversed.

All this talk about South Poles has me thinking about penguins. I suppose they don't mind fish breath, but it seems pretty disgusting to me.

Lots of buzz among the Nobel committee, I'm sure.

Bertold, that guy is pretty obviously looking at a brown sky.  How he can compare magnetism with human sexuality and psychology and think it's a valid comparison, I haven't the slightest!

Anyone know a good divorce lawyer?

Chemical Engineering Student: “I Used Physics to Prove Gay Marriage Wrong”

“If you bring two South Poles together you find that the two South Poles will not attract indicating that same sex marriage should not hold. A female should not attract a female as South Pole of a magnet does not attract the South Pole of a magnet. But, when you bring a North Pole of a magnet and a South Pole of a magnet they will attract because they are not the same, indicating that a man will attract a woman because of the way nature has made a female… That is how I used physics to prove gay marriage wrong.”

Spoiler: he has equally compelling arguments utilizing chemistry, biology and math.

Ruth, why do suppose there are fewer gay marriages in Philadelphia?

Carl, that makes Chicago look like the new San Francisco.
