Oh its the old our ancestors had slaves( oops not my ancestors) argument ...that is based upon racial characteristics that are the very same that justified slavery. Hey lets just enslave blacks... Hey lets just blame all whites....

And because of this, lets bring in people, not with just a worse history by a wide margin, but what is actually current...while bringing down American black with us.....

You guys do remember civil rights issues were being fought for in your country while the rest of he world already made slavery illegal. People in the USA are still arguing about allowing same sex marriages. I think American need to take a look at their own issues and history before they are so quick to judge other places. You were just a sexist, racist and homophobic as most of this places not too long ago ... so I not sure why you think you can make social changes, but these places can't. Most people outside of the USA know more about American then American's appear to know about other places. People so phobic of other cultures and people might want to actually open their brains any try to understand their is a huge diverse world outside you little bubble.
Its not part of fundamentals of the religion to execute them. That's why social change was easier. The Bible more or less says its bad, and you can toss them out of the congregation.....but take right back in when they repent. Hating the act and loving the homosexual is a consistent interpretation.

Its no the same. Nothing ever is. However I agree with you that we have our own issues. So I certainly don't want to import anything that sets us back a century.
