Oh - on the linked story below.  I'm awed by Greenwald's courage.  Over a my life, I've sought LGBTI heroes.  While this story has a long narrative to play out, Greenwald looks to me like he has some hero DNA.  We'll see what ensues.

I'm impressed with the convergence of two LGBT / government overreach stories in the news.  One was the revelation of Manning's transgender struggle.  The other was this:

No "big deal" about the gay aspect - the story regards the gov't over-reach and 1984-style spying on citizens; and those who exposing those actions.

Pro wrestler "Stone Cold" Steve Austin has come out in favor of equal marriage.

(NSFW: this two-minute interview clip with Ted Fowler is f---in' replete with swearwords.)

Notably, on nonaccepting churches: "Which one of these motherfuckers talked to God, and God said same-sex marriage was a no-can-do?"

That reminds me of religioustolerance.org's study where people tried to assess "the will of God" about same-sex marriage through prayer. 2/3 of the participants felt they received an answer. Some of these people approved of SSM at the beginning of the study, some disapproved; but every single answer confirmed the person's initial opinion!

Not one felt that God disagreed with them.

Carl, thanks for linking to the article.

I think people always have an excuse for their xenophobia.  The "threat" to "sovereignty" imposed by "foreign" ideas or people.....  My first thought - commented in the article - was that is the same excuse used in Africa. 

I call it scapegoat.  There might always be a reason, insofar as one thing leads to another, but in the end it's still scapegoating.

As for whether foreigners can influence the behavior - I don't know.  It seems to me like it's a humanistic duty to try, whether it's that, or ethnic cleansing somewhere, or other human rights abuses.  But there is so much, and it's so difficult to influence, where does one start?  Do we stop buying oil from Muslim countries where abuses against LGBT people and women are rampant?

Sorry about blathering.  I don't know where it leads.
