    What we need to do about this is charter a plane. All us homosexuals who feel these two individuals in Zimbabwe along with their persecuted compadres across Africa are being persecuted. Charter a plane and fly out there to help those persecuted gay Zimbabweans. And what of the black babies? Who’ll look after them? If a guy blows you off in the woods will you make a sound???!! Rise up whomosexuals and fight the prejudice facing us persecuted minorities.

  2. That’s a very uninciteful babble, Jean-Paul. I don’t think you would find it so funny if you were living under such an oppressive regime.

    He may have a point though Dromio, its only extreme measures such as chartering a plane and liberating these people.

  4. Dromio:

    You have surely read enough of my comments to notice that this is neither my style of writing, nor my vocabulary, and certainly not my general attitude.

    I have stopped using “Jean-Paul Bentham” a few weeks ago. Someone is obviously using the name to pass me off as “more intelligent” than I really am.

    This has already occurred on several threads, and I have reported the comments to the editor.

    I don’t mind a joke once in a while, but because of the subject matter here, post #1 is definitely in bad taste.

    Your comment is spot on though…it is babble…

  5. @1 Jean-Paul Bentham:

    Just so you”ll know, every one of the comments you are posting using my name has been reported as annoying and offensive.

    Go ahead and have fun while it lasts.

  6. But if you listen carefully, as one poster said yesterday, you will hear a tide of opposition coming from Africa itself. Don’t hear much? Well, that’s because it’s obliterated by an overwhelming flood tide called tyranny and intolerance and disregard for human rights which are, after all, in the minds of Robert Mugabe and other African rulers, an imported idea from foreign places. Even South Africa, the democratic darling of Africa, chooses to align itself with homophobes in the UN and to appoint a virulent hater as its ambassador to Uganda rather than speak out against outrages in Malawi, Zimbabwe and elsewhere on the continent.
