Not just the Left. I have a feeling there would even be some Freepers of a more secularist bent who would be absolutely fine with this same sort of thing being imposed in the USA.
I could probably come up with a list of current and banned FReepers who would certainly fall into this category.
You're probably right. If a judicial ruling came down here banning all speech criticizing homosexuality, theyd reject doing anything to overturn it. Theyd argue that we should be proposing tax cuts and free trade rather than being bogged down on divisive social issues. Wed be compared to the Taliban for worrying about what homosexuals do in the bedroom.
I doubt that. There are plenty of FReepers, including myself, who have no objection to homosexuality, but I’d be very surprised if you find any besides just-signed-up-today trolls who would support this sort of speech suppression. Frankly, I think this sort of thing hurts, rather than helps the pro-gay rights movement. This guy isn’t forcing anyone to do anything they don’t want to do, or forcing anyone to refrain from doing anything they do want to do. He’s a private citizen expressing his views, which include well-founded outrage at publications running ads that read “Man seeking boys.... age not so relevant” in explicit sex-seeking classified sections. And he’s apparently expressing them mainly via pamphlets, which are easy for anyone to ignore. It’s not like he’s a Fred Phelps type, disrupting people’s daily activities by spewing anger and condemnation at high volume in close proximity to his targets.
