    That's harsh. Even the Mormon church just ostracizes and exiles the gays, who then commit suicide at an alarming rate.

    You can substitute Catholic or a host of other churches for Mormon.

    Maybe there's hope that they can be like America afterall.

    Uganda, largely due to the efforts of Christians, was trying to make homosexuality a capital offense.

    This guy who should have fatally OD'd before finding Jesus thinks it's a good idea:

    Damn, we don't even hit double-digit posts on a thread before blaming America, Catholics, etc. That's some efficient message-board insanity.

    I don't think the word blame means what you think it means.

    Maybe they're laying the groundwork for a positive relationship with President Santorum.

    When co-workers at Starman's shop try to dress in brash Western fashions, he puts a stop to it immediately. He's not putting up with any of that nonsense!

    Let me know when police or the military are rounding up emo kids in America and then they're getting stoned to death. I must have missed that on the 6 o'clock news.

    New thread: Someone somewhere in the middle east did something bad <whether it has anything to do with Islam or not. ...but in this case related to it>.

    Predictable response from typically predictable poster : The <another religion, which has nothing to do with the original post> do such and such!

    Topic now suitably shifted to starting the intended pissing contest. ...

    Predictable response from typically predictable poster 2: Let me know when us virtuous Americans <or Christians> do <something associated with terrorism or radical Islam, such as beheading someone or stoning someone to death>.

    I'd suggest stickying the thread and skipping the dance each time, but that isn't going to stop em.
