I went off topic to say t-hat is all I have to say about homosexuality. You would do good to study those posts. You could start your contrasting list on the topic. Move on quickly though it is not worth much of your time. It is not possible to help someone that will not help themselves. I will pray for you.

Is she married? Did she introduce her "spouse" to the nation? Did they kiss in front of the cameras in celebration for wining the nomination?

Yes. According to the articles I cited, she has been in a civil union with her partner since 2002.

I don't know what you mean by "introducing her spouse to the nation", but it's clear that it's not a secret. She's not in the closet, obviously.

Not if he was extremly effeminate. My reasoning is that when he has to deal with male dominated countries they would look at him as being weak and therefore would not take him seriously. Now if he was just gay (there is a difference),intelligent and qualified....I would not have a probelm with it.

I think that's a childish question.

And she didn't just win a nomination. She's the Prime Minister. Did you take even two seconds to look at either of the links I posted?

How about if it's a masculine woman? Or any woman, for that matter? If you're worried that male-dominated countries will only take masculine males seriously, I'm wondering if you're also against having a female president of the U.S.

Oh, I just want to add that it would never happen in this country b/c of the morality police in regards to one's sexuality.

Not to get off of the subject but can someone explain to me why does this country have so many hangups regarding sex, and the human body but accepts acts of extreme violence as a way of life? One of these things are normal and the other is not?
