    The government should clearly be involved in everybody's sex life.

    I'm guessing they got the idea for "public outings" from the New York Journal who ran an article a couple of years ago listing the names and addresses of people who owned guns in certain communities. Guess they couldn't get the scarlet letters sewn on fast enough.

    Some people go way overboard when they identify a perceived enemy.

    From the article

    In 2011, prominent Ugandan gay rights campaigner David Kato was bludgeoned to death at his home after a different newspaper splashed photos, names and addresses of gays in Uganda on its front page along with a yellow banner reading "Hang Them".

    On Monday, President Yoweri Museveni signed a bill into law which holds that repeat homosexuals should be jailed for life, outlaws the promotion of homosexuality and requires people to denounce gays.
    Homophobia is widespread in Uganda, where American-style evangelical Christianity is on the rise.

    Is that story about Denmark true that, in WWII when the Germans occupied and required Jews to be identified, much of the Danish population sewed the Star of David on their coats?
    True or not, applicable or not, you gotta like the story.
