This is what you call a quagmire for the liberal progressive and social justice crusading libertarian. What do you do when one protected class (Africans) violate the rights of another protected class (homosexuals)?

What do you do hot shot? What do you do?

But for real, I love the feigned outrage of the pasty white skinned liberal over a redneck claiming gays won't get into an imaginary fun land called Heaven but they don't really do a whole lot about gays being imprisoned and murdered in third world hell holes by savages.

Shoot the gays, take them out of the equation ?

Mostly has to do with proximity... and there has been a fair bit of outrage over this, it's just that it's perceived as less personal, so it doesn't evoke the same degree of emotional reaction from some.

It's not a problem for me. I could care less who is violating other's basic human rights. One person's rights end where another's begin -and I am intolerant of intolerance. Oh, and that is not a hypocritical position. If I need to explain it, I'll be happy to.

What's interesting is the extent to which the "Christian" right has gone out of their way to lobby for horrible laws against homosexuality in sub-saharan Africa since the turn of the millennium. The Southern Baptist Church calls this "mission work."

I see no issue. If someone made being a certain skin punishable by any kind of imprisonment, I would oppose that law. If someone makes gender orientation or identity punishable, I would oppose that law.

Ah, so it comes back to this obsession with Phil Robertson. I would not deprive Robertson of any rights. I will, however, continue not to watch his show. Again, I see no analogy to be made.
