    Some days I have very little faith in humanity.

    This will be great for the tourism industry in Liberia if they issue hunting permits. Plus, as a double bonus, we can refuse reentry to all the republicans who go there for vacation!

    Sometimes I think there is so much hate and disconnection from reality, that one day it will all boil over and we'll all burn in a mushroom cloud. Needless to say, I hope these barbaric measures fail but it looks like there are even more countries on my list of places to avoid.

    It's so scary to think about this stuff going on.

    Not nearly as scary as the unholy union between a man and a man!

    It's just beyond belief. What is so horrible about us that people feel they have to do these things?

    You have bad breath from all the... well, you know... plus, it's scary (especially when they dream about it allllllll night)

    Oh, and God is going to judge you when you die, so they need to make sure they get a chance to judge you first.

    Bullies always need someone to pick on to feel better about themselves and gain power. Sometimes bullies grow up to run countries. The Jews didn't do anything to Hitler either, you know. I'm sure that makes you feel better, right? :rolleyes:

    I wonder how much of this has sprouted from the holy missionary work in Africa over the years.

    It's obvious.

    They subconsciously believe that there is no god/allah, so they must take action during the life of the miscreant.

    Less harsh?

    They have the hubris to assume god/allah's work? Disgraceful.

    Oops. I thought it said Libya, not Liberia. I'm sure we've bombed Liberia anyway, so the comment is still relevant.

    Surprising.

    Sorry don't want to take this off topic. It was more of a tongue in cheek comment.

    Tis is pretty horrible though. I'll never understand religious people.

    Wow this whole thing is just disgusting.

    Here's a thought. Why doesn't everyone just stay out of each others lives?

    Because apparently, too many people's lives are so pathetic and sad, they have to get into other people's business.

    One might think they have no more important issues to tackle. OK everyone, we can get out of Africa, they got everything important under control.

    Does the UN recognize equal rights in this regard yet?

    On one hand, I feel countries should have sovereignty in how they handle social/domestic issues but on another hand, it is hard to not want to extend our policies abroad.

    They're working on it. Regardless, killing people because of what they are should never be tolerated.

    They never say why gays are bad for their country. Even if it was blind hate just what reason does this homophobia stem from?

    Had to delete a few posts for violating forum rules, and some responses too.

    Carry on... :)
