The ukrainians have a good idea

More like a fascist one. The government that outlaws positive depictions of homosexuality is one that can just as easily do the same if the subject is guns, conservatism or Christianity.

True.....but the whole concept of self government allows the people’s representatives to pick and choose what they wish to make illegal. We used to do the same thing...censorship of movies and books according to the prevalent moral code of the people was always present in our country. Our ancestors were smart enough to know the difference between protected POLITICAL SPEECH and immorality. And gutsy enough to enforce it.

The majority of Americans are dead set against the (minority) homosexual agenda, yet the homosexual agenda continues to advance, even to point of direct imposition on the majority of the population.  How is this happening?

The majority of Americans are dead set against the (minority) Islamic agenda, yet the minority Islamic agenda continues to advance, even to the point of direct imposition on the majority of the population.  How is this happening?

What if facists (and facsim), in various forms, began to undermine the freedom of the majority?  What to do then?

The right purpose of law and power is to do good and punish evil.

It’s a rather poor argument to say that they COULD do the opposite and therefore ought to do nothing. And it’s sad to see the good people pleading for a “live and let live” truce with evil because their brothers-in-arms keep capitulating on this point.

true. Yet if one doesn’t use this, we have the case we have in the US where to be gay is “cool” on tv
