    True or not, applicable or not, you gotta like the story.
    Never heard that. But what we did do was set up a smuggling system to get Jews to Sweden.. sadly some were caught.

    Only 200! man they got it easy we have over 2 million and they run the country!!

    At last a homeland for our homophobes; of course they’ll have to stumble along with a national healthcare system but cheer up the life expectancy is around 54/57,a lot less if you’re gay, sadly.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Your reprehensible comment is duly noted.

    It is likely none of the 200 are gay. This is just a reason to attack enemies.

    Why doesn't Denmark offer them refuge? Oh yeah, I forgot Denmark actually pays people to LEAVE. Denmark to pay immigrants £12,000 to go home if they 'can't or won't' assimilate | Mail Online

    Some people go way overboard when they identify a perceived enemy.
    You two realize its punishable by life in prison to be a homosexual in Uganda right? So its not really the same at all now is it?

    I'm guess that like from CanadaJohn we'll all be in for a treat as Vance spends a few dozen pages trying to convince that it is still somehow the same. Go on.

    And? Denmark aint the only country doing that. And who knows, I would be proud of my country if they gave refuge to Ugandan homosexuals... will they.. doubtful, but that was never the point of my original comment.

    This whole situation is due to Christian intolerance, arrogance and ignorance and is funded by the American Evangelical community. Hence sending the Evangelicals over there and taking the homosexuals instead would solve a lot of problems would it not?

    We can debate the pros and cons of Christian missionary work in Africa if you want, but that's not one you're going to win. You think Mother Teresa was a bad influence?

    Also, Denmark's immigration policy is generally known for being harsh. You can't really compare it to the rest of Europe and you certainly can't compare it to North American countries who are made up almost entirely of immigrants.

    Somehow I don't think that you vote for them, but Denmark has an especially whacky right wing that borders on being fascists. Denmark for the Danes, eh?

    Oh I would win alone based on the Uganda case.. but I can throw in Nigerian Witch Burnings as well if you want. Missionary work is nothing but brainwashing and pushing your beliefs on others.. they should go **** themselves instead of causing all these problems around the world.

    Also, Denmark's immigration policy is generally known for being harsh. You can't really compare it to the rest of Europe and you certainly can't compare it to North American countries who are made up almost entirely of immigrants.
    I know it is harsh.. it is actually too harsh in some cases.

    Yep all countries have those kind of wackos. The ironic thing is that these people most likely have a bit of foreign DNA in them.. and rather recent at that.
