    Yes, progress. That does not refute my point, however. There are no laws against being fat or nerdy.

    Sodomy and gay don't necessarily equate to each other. Besides, were they ever enforced? Can you cite any examples of it being used to arrest a person for being gay in the last, say...30 years or so?

    History of sodomy laws

    It happens in other countries as well, there are places you can get your head cut off for being gay.

    Gays were rounded up in cuba in some places a while back. Ask Sandokan he knows all about it.

    There are better sources out there but this took me 30 seconds of googling.

    Again, Lawrence won the case and the texas law was stricken down. So it's a no go.

    I'd say this post is a contender. That belief requires a shocking amount of egoism.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Technically, you can be fired for being fat in every state, but you can only be fired for being gay in 29 states. So assuming people had the same moral disproval of obesisty that they have toward gay people, it would be worse to be fat. In reality, people don't really give fat people that hard of a time outside of high school and I don't know any adults who have been beaten up just because they are fat. However, I have known gay adults who have gotten the snot beaten out of them for being gay.

    OK, so you guys found two instances where the charges were dropped in one case and overturned in another along with repeal of the anti-sodomy law that wasn't widely enforced anyway.

    I'm not finding that to be a shining endorsement of the "it's illegal to be gay" argument. Not at all.
