American gays should pray (if any are religious) and give thanks to God that they live in such a tolerant, open society as America is. When you hear how homosexuality is treated in other parts of the world, it really adds perspective to the gay demands in our country.
We can have all the debates about gay marriage, “don’t ask/don’t tell” military policies, gay adoptions, and gay partners being on health insurance policies, among others. My only point is that the gay debates we have are far different than the gay debates in some other places. And the point is that American gays have never been freer or more open about their lives than they are right now. And for that they should be grateful.
What you say is very true, and not just for homosexuals.
Young blacks American Jews, and many other varied groups have no idea how bad it really could be but then that is ignorance.
And if ya haven’t been to many third world places to see for yourself you just can not imagine.
