    When will people understand that the written word on Twitter is easily shared documentation, not just idle chatter.

    Given today's society, they should not have been surprised by the flashback.

    If they were surprised, they are fools.

    lol the same iran where "we do not have homosexuals like in your country" and gay people are forced into sex changes and if they refuse, are sometimes executed? I mean i even remember a couple minors were hung.

    Or how about saudi arabia, where it's still a death penalty? Just look at the abhorrent laws on homosexuality in the muslim world

    Yeah, about half of christians, after finding out they have gay friends/relatives, have managed to extricate themselves from the pulpit's clutches. Doesn't change the fact that without religion, this wouldn't have been a problem to begin with.
    77% of Americans identify as Christian. If it was solely (or even just mostly) religious you'd see the problem as spread out rather than clustered. I see this issue as regional and cultural.

    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    At least some of us are able to see it whether he announces it or not

    Actually, it is almost entirely exposure. Those who know or are related to someone gay are several times more likely to support same-sex marriage regardless of where they live or their religion. Of cpuse, where they live and their religion do play some part in whether they are likely to meet and get to know gay people.

    Neither is the Christian world. There are always exceptions both within Islam and Christianity. There are, for example, entire Muslim nations which have codified the refusal to accept the validity of SSM or homosexuality, and the punishments are rather severe. I see no such correlative example within Christian or generally secular nations.

    Eh it's probably easy to support discrimination when you've probably never really had to deal with it. Must be nice!
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    It's both, although i stress that the regional diff is largely steeped in religiosity (bible belt), but the fact remains that without religion, we would never have had anti gay laws in this country. It wouldna been the puritans who came, you know, those freaks intolerable to even the monarchs who passed a sodomy death penalty law.

    We would've inherited a lot more of the greek/roman indifference towards same sex behavior
