    I thought liberals in here already taught us that someone's "freedom of speech" couldn't be effected by another person, only governments could curtail that?

    Russia is arresting people for exercising what Americans would refer to as free speech. Someone supporting free speech would defend the rights of those people, even if they personally disapprove of the speech itself.

    Well, that's Russia...That's why people tend to not like communist centric countries too much...And it is what we are trying to prevent here...

    No worries...I really don't have a problem with gay couples....I knew quite a few of them when we lived in Maryland, and my wife was a graphic designer....The character of people really depends little on their sexual orientation....

    Good for Montreal, but honestly I see a double standard. Many conservatives (and others) voiced opposition and concern over the Beijing Olympics and the fact that China restricts human rights with many being concerned by their restrictions on religious freedom and practice. There isn't nearly the same outcry, but Russia passing anti-homosexual "propaganda" laws? The whole liberal world goes in support and cries fowl over it. Back in China I remember many telling those concerned about China hosting that "these games are apolitical, it's a point to put politics aside and compete as nations" and other such stuff. I just smell a hint of hypocrisy or possible bias with the outrage over Russian laws concerning homosexuality and then back when the Olympics were hosted in China with not nearly the same level of international and personal opposition/activism.

    The whole idea of the Olympics is to bring nations together to pave the way for dialogue that might, for example, bring civilization to those corners of the world that need it. It is supposed to open doors, not shut them. The Olympics is meant to bring peace, not conflict.

    We had no qualms about attending the Olympics along with all those totalitarian, communistic nations that oppressed their entire populations all through the Cold War, and now people want to see the Olympics essentially destroyed over LGBT issues? And they fancy themselves to be more enlightened and tolerant. What a joke.
