The anti-equality referendum in Slovakia (which would have also banned adoption by same-sex couples, and allowed parents to remove their children from sex education) failed spectacularly, with only 21% of eligible voters casting ballots.
In Slovakia a referendum vote is binding only with a turnout of at least 50%. LGBT-rights groups had urged opponents of the referendum to stay home for that reason.
(Of course, the heterosexist supremacists are probably trumpeting the 90-95% yes votes among those people who did show up. And now, more than ever before, we've seen the new Pope's true colors.)
The U.S. State Department is planning to appoint a special envoy "to advocate for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people overseas." [Boston Globe] Legislation to accomplish this was introduced in Congress last week. Representative Chris Smith, R NJ, head of the subcommittee over human rights and international organizations, said "I am a strong believer in traditional marriage and I do not construe homosexual rights as human rights."
That would clearly entail the contention that homosexuals are therefore not humans. Gee, I wonder what species he thinks we belong to???
The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision. —Lynn Lavner
I can't add anything to the views that have already been expressed here about the state of our country. Sometimes I just want the ability to shake these people by the shoulders and ask, "What the hell are you thinking?! Use your brain for once!"
Regarding an earlier conversation, I'd rather work as a porn actor than to be employed in the slimy environment of religious preaching.
I think that Bush was definitely a front man for Cheney, who could NEVER have been elected (or even nominated) on his own. Bush just played his "good ol' boy" cheerleader and did what he was told. He may even have believed he was actually running things, for all I know.
And we have to remember that Al Gore won the popular vote, and what the Supremes did was totally unconstitutional. I re-read the full U.S. Constitution last week, and it carefully spells out the correct procedure if there is a tie. The Court is NOT mentioned at all in that section.
And in 2004, I suspect that the Ohio voting machines were rigged.
I vote by mail....the completed ballots may be scanned electronically, but I still feel more secure about the fact that there IS a paper trail.
Chrissie, a lot of us are trying, but the Catholic majority on the Supreme court is doing everything they can to stifle "We, the People."
Most honest polls show that the majority of citizens are in favor of same sex marriages (and other LGBT issues), and hate the Koch Bros and Tubby Rove with a passion. But they have so effing much money that they can afford to buy everyone in DC, and have change left over.
I'd like to see Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren run for the White House as a team; I have NO use for that professional Xian, Hillary Clinton.
As for the Rethuglican party....It ceased to be the party of Lincoln almost 100 years ago, but a large number of older African-Americans don't seem to realize that...or they are too wrapped up in the Jesus myth, and favor the Tea/Toilet Party's policies.
Yes Daniel W. I often let my feelings out. I have seen the down side of a lot of the American policy. I was a 13 year Vet of the USAF from 52 right through to to 66 but that carries no weight. I was disowned and now have a British Citizenship. I finally got a Visa through my Daughter who was born in England. To date the only thing that the Vet. department has done is to get me to help make a video to help VA Doctors manage to deal with Transgender Vets. Of course if I was sick I could join the Que. The American people are just about the best that exist but they allow a lot of politicians who only have their own existence in view to destroy the way of life that should prevail in this country. The people of this land are told to believe that Atheists, Gay People including Transgender people are a total threat to their way of life and that same sex couples will destroy the American way. They follow like rats to the cliff because some politician said so and never question anything. Of course the Catholic Church ( The most offensive and the biggest bunch of murderers in history ) insist that they know what mankind need. At 81 I am not sure just how much time I have left to rock the boat but for as long as I have I will try and piss off these bible thumping idiots who seem hell bent on screwing up what could be a wonderful life in this land. OK so I hope all on this site are able to think for themselves to go at this bunch. Take the American Government away from the Koch brothers and make it your government. Life will be much better. As for me, No Sex,pl
ease,, I'm British!
Daniel, do you think Mary is desperately trying to hang onto her monster of a father's approval? Or maybe "daddy" is the experimenter and Dummya is the monster he created...
If Dick Chaney is anything to go by he and every member of his family are nothing more than offensive crap..His daughter may be gay but she is part of one of the most offensive family to ever walk the earth and she will have to show a lot more humanity before I would piss on her if she were on fire. What Dick and Bush have done to our country is unforgivable so let them fester in their own feces. In my opinion that whole bunch who have caused so much death and destruction are right up there with Adolph Hitler and the Nazi regime and they have caused the death of just about as many good people. The men of Scotland wear a skirt or a Kilt. They would be the first to say that the Bush area of the US attitude was just about as screwed up as the Nazi era of Germany.I live in the USA but I am not an American. This is a good country who is brainwashed into letting the idiots that are elected trash what is not the American way. I would love it if they would actually wake up to what they let themselves be dragged unto but they always let others take care of it. I am a transgender person and catch crap for it from those who call themselves Republican. As a US Veteran of both Vietnam and Korea I feel that I have the right to have my say and I will support anyone, weather they wear a skirt or any other form of dress and yes even Black face if you can sort this mess out I am with you.
Maybe Mary Cheney (gag!) should have included other men who wear "dresses"...such as the entire Catholic hierarchy, Muddled Eastern men, and traditional (ceremonial) Greek soldiers. Actually, to be fair, she ought to be just as scathing about women who wear slacks...(I haven't worn a skirt since I went to a memorial service in 2001...because I hate all the other junk that goes with them, like panty-hose.)
