    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.
    It's the same in principle but not necessarily the same in outcome - of course, to understand principle, you'd have to be able to appreciate that if something is wrong against those you favour, it is also wrong against those you oppose. Fortunately, for me, I appreciate the consistency of principle.

    I don't see it as being the same in principle because its not the same in intent, the publishers of the addresses didn't publish that information with the knowledge that these people could be murdered or locked up for the rest of their lives. But for record, I think publishing that kind of information was pretty stupid and should never had happened. However its not because I have a principle against publishing personal information, I do but that's not the underlying motivation why I oppose both actions.

    Amazing this kind of absolute barbaric ness still exists today...and at this level.

    Just when you think humanity is beginning to smarten up a bit...this pathetic crap happens.


    I am not gay, but anyone who agrees in ANY way with this law is as dumb/ignorant as a friggin' post.

    The principle, since you seem to have missed it entirely, is that you don't publish information against those you oppose with the obvious intent that some in the public will take that information and act on it. The intent, in both cases, was for those "outed" to be "attacked" by surrogates.

    Im certain that LIKE the US papers, their actual intent is to PROTECT those people, just as Im certain the people that support the US media's decisions to publish such lists REALLY just care about the well being of the gun owners. Surely those decisions transcend the government position.

    CCW holders (except under very special circumstances which I am not aware to currently exist) won't have to fear for their lives. Nor would anyone reasonable assume that a CCW holder would be attacked (they have a weapon them!)

    This makes it totally different, due to consequences and understanding of the potential consequences when the names were published.

    In both cases, printing the names of people was unnecessary and a shame, but still, people are probably going to die in the uganda case, and that makes it far, far worse

    And yet when a major newspaper chain vows to post lists of gun owners here in the states, that's freedom of speech and nothing to worry about. Malicious intent is malicious intent no matter who does it.

    American evangelical missionaries have taken advantage of Ugandan superstition and fear of god to incite these heightened prejudicial laws. The missionaries have a much bigger say in Ugandan politics than they did even just 10 years ago. Radicalism has taken hold.

    Seriously?

    As I stated, the last time someone was outed in the Ugandan press as gay, they were killed.

    When was the last time any gunowner was killed because someone posted in a newspaper that they owned guns?

    It is, look at all the hoopla for years over abortion and homosexuality in which there's been govt involvement.
