Hmm... don't know what to say. Alabama Department of Homeland Security considers gay rights organizations, environmentalist, and anti-war orginzations terrorist. Should add people who promote evolution and the big-bang theories to the terrorist list too.

Well, we know that the Democrats are terrorists. It doesn't surprise me in the least that the gays and the scientists are, too.

Well, at least it included abortion opponents. Some of those groups actually have spawned terrorists.

This kind of thing has been going on for years, and more accurately centuries... At least they are making the list public now!

What's the problem? Since when were gay people a different species? They are human after all with "human" rights.

What exactly are "gay" rights?

Same issue as 'women's' rights, and 'civil rights'. The fight is to have these groups recognized under human rights.

I doubt anything I say will convince you, and honestly, I hope I'm wrong... but I don't think I am.

If we're both here in 10 years, I'll happily admit I was wrong (or out by a few years ).

So there's an interesting event in your country:

So much for equality.

Wow. How ****ing ridiculous.

I wonder how they test whether you're straight or gay, for one thing, and how homosexuals would react to a 'straight' pub banning them (not well, I would imagine - and rightly so).

But then, it is Melbourne...

Nah, that's Canberra (well, our professional idiots).

Melbourne is very... "artsy" I suppose. I find it terribly boring, and full of extremely alternative-for-the-sake-of-it people.

That said, I've only been there once (and wouldn't go back for fear of boredom-induced suicide), and I've been told my opinion of it is typical of Sydneysiders, so who knows...

This is actually an interesting issue - to what extent can private organizations define their membership? This comes up in the UK with women's sports, or male clubs, where, on the one hand you have the legitimate interest of a group in defining its membership, and on the other, issues of discrimination. In general, in the UK, litigation on this has looked at whether or not this is the only access that the banned group has to a resource or opportunity (ie the most prestigious sports club or a professional association) or simply one of many (eg a women only knitting circle).

The list also included environmentalists, animal rights advocates and abortion opponents.
Single-issue extremists often focus on issues that are important to all of us. However, they have no problem crossing the line between legal protest and ... illegal acts, to include even murder, to succeed in their goals," it read.
Adding gay rights groups to the list was dumb, but so is overreacting and throwing the usual lefty "OMG! The whole country is lost! The sky is falling!" hissyfit over the rest of it, which is actually dead on.

Uh... did anyone actually read the article? Sounds like they pulled it. So maybe it's no longer "considers", but considered (past tense) these "single-issue groups" as threats. If they do rebuild it, it will no longer include these alleged "single-issue" threats. While Alabama might be slow to the punch, there seems to be a glimmer of hope here. I'd also like to add that we should not gauge the actions of a few in Alabama (who did actually come to their senses after all) as indicative of the US as a whole.

Thank you and good night.

Hahah, I'd forgotten about that sketch.
