    Members of the EU? I think not.

  2. At least the police recognized the abduction as a crime, that has to count for something. If it happened in Russia the police would have done less than nothing to investigate.

    Another news article on this story states that the couple, AA & MM, were eventually reunited with nether having suffered lasting physical injuries.

    It will be interesting to see what the ECHR and Council of Europe says about this. Serbia should and must not be allowed membership of the EU.

    Dear Tim and Robert! I live in a former communist country/Romania/ and I never thought about homophobia until one bold young politician proposed a law that would allow LGBTQI fellow citizens to enter civil partnership. What I have heard in the media and what I’ve read in FB was…shocking. The main problem in all these former communist countries is that after the fail of socialism, the Church has gained huge power and it sells it to the corrupt, lame, stupid politicians. They are FOR SALE. Most of them. Ordinary people have lot of prejudice (and fear) against the LGBTQI community basically because of their religious beliefs. I am a fortunate citizen, free of any prejudice and a non-believer. But i am an unhappy one ’cause I totally dislike any kind of discrimination and hatred. We are members of the EU; this might help the cause of FREE and Equal. But nobody asked us if we were or not homophobic. So don’t delude yourself. I’m glad that at least the Serbian Police acted immediately.

    Usually in these cases, they gang rape the kidnap victim.

  6. Every now and again you read a story and you suddenly feel that you are back in the middle ages. Social evolution and progress like bio evolution moves ever so slowly. That’s certainly the case where ever religion has influence. (without exception)
