Alot of this homophobia is generated by Americans who are promoting an anti gay/lesbian agenda in other countires. It's sad that we export the worse of our culture to other countries. Politicians the world over are eager to make this a divisive issue for thier political futures. It's sad. You can't pass or enforce laws to prevent people from falling in love. It's futile and just plain wrong.

so the gains by homosexuals in this country are being used by other countries as reasons to pass laws against homosexuality. How ironic. And to jbetcher, if you think this "homophobic" culture is being exported well you are mistaken. These cultures are much older than ours and I'd be willing to bet that aboriginal tribes weren't too accepting of the gay lifestyle before we ever showed up.
