    On the other hand, perhaps he was lying about his opposition. That seems a solid bet.

    And let's keep in mind that under the Bush Administration, more money was contributed towards AIDS research and precautions than from any other country in the world. Over $15 billion. That hardly makes him or the American people anti Gay.
    Oh I read the whole article and it is a bogus homophobic excuse you and Bush (and BHO) push.

    And AIDS is not a gay disease... stop living in the 1980s.

    And as long as the US pushes anti-gay policies internally and externally (not so much any more) then the US is anti-gay. There is no way around it.. on this front, the US is in the same boat as Saudi Arabia and Iran.

    Now, that could be because of the very thing we're talking about in this thread (although, South Africa is the only African nation to decriminalize homosexuality AND constitutionally grant same-sex marriage rights) and gay men are afraid to report, but everything I've ever read about HIV in Africa is that it's a "straight" problem.
    Yes, you are right of course, FilmFestGuy. Gays have a very difficult time in Africa and its not really getting any better. It is also more prevalent among heterosexuals..

    I was thinking more of the domestic issue where Gays are more closely associated with AIDS, but that did not deter the President at all, and I applaud him for it.

    I'm homophobic? My son is Gay, schmuck, and you wouldn't dare say that to my face..

    And AIDS is not a gay disease... stop living in the 1980s.
    What a moron you are.

    Remember this? We are the true barbarians.

    The Obama administration however has submitted a report to the UN Commissioner on Human Rights, South African judge Navanethem Pillay, which makes direct reference to a popular Arizona immigration law aimed at tackling illegal immigration, which is fiercely opposed by the White House, and is the subject of legal action by the Justice Department. The report references
    A recent Arizona law, S.B. 1070, (which) has generated significant attention and debate at home and around the world. The issue is being addressed in a court action that argues that the federal government has the authority to set and enforce immigration law. That action is ongoing; parts of the law are currently enjoined.
