'Bigotry Conquers All,' Gay Rights Groups Say of U.S. Vote at UN

'Bigotry Conquers All,' Gay Rights Groups Say of U.S. Vote at UN:

WASHINGTON - The governments of the United States and Iran--part of President George W. Bush's ''axis of evil'' and his current nuclear bete noire--demonstrated rare unity of cause this past week when Washington backed a Tehran initiative to deny UN access to advocates of sexual minorities' rights.
The federal government's UN vote to dismiss two international organizations' applications for speaking rights at the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) brought the U.S. government in line with regimes it routinely chides as human rights delinquents, HRW said. These include the leaders of Cameroon, China, Cuba, Pakistan, Russia, Senegal, Sudan, and Zimbabwe.

Religious fundamentalists are all the same the only difference is the God they pray to.

Exactly.

Both rely on some historical-person’s account of how an almighty god wants them to behave. Why rational people buy into this baloney is beyond me -- especially when the behavior god calls for is to shit on other people.

It never ceases to amaze me how people can delude themselves into believing this crap – while convinced they are doing god’s work.
