christians seem to be the enemies of gays up here and that plays a part. one of the guys carrying on last week was gay - babbling how christianity was a pile of s*** that was created to control the lower class and instill fear to keep them from uprising.
other guy wasn't gay, but evidently christians have been harassing him his whole life and inviting him to concerts that always secretly turn out to be Christian concerts. they don't seem to know he's college educated,smarter than them, and capable of making informed decisions.
these were both last week
Yeah, I've always been of the mind, live and let live, but when someone feels oppressed so long there is an inclination to go on the offensive rather than stay the middle ground.
There are many gays who are not in the "movement" who just want to live a regular life free of hassle. But you don't see them in the media. They are boring.
I am Sikh, and while nothing on this large a scale has happened in the States, this is nothing new to Sikhs post 9/11. It is a sad sad world we live in when your place of worship is no longer safe place.
I don't understand why anyone would want to attack Sikhs ... it's got to be pure ignorance. Obviously one should not attack any group but the Sikhs have no history of violence towards this country ...
Your culture invented some of the greatest food around, hands down, bar none. And sadly, it doesn't get a hint of the respect/adulation here in the States that it deserves.
Oh, and you're an ok poster, so I guess they gave us that too.
I will say though, when I roll into the most authentic Indian restaurants, populated almost exclusively (it seems most days) by ethnic Indian Suncontinentals of the various stripes, they tend....to look at me kinda funny.
Not sure if it's cause I'm fat as a house, or cause I'm usually the only anglo face in the place. Either way, the food rocks. Can't imagaine how much better home-cooked would be.
Just recently became a fan of the cusine. Samosas are what hooked me!!!
And this guy sure looks dumb enough to confuse sikhs with his likely intended targets, Muslims. Cowardly piece of trash.
I feel that in the shadow of the Aurora shooting, there will be many people in this country who will find the inspiration to carry out things they've already been thinking about doing. Holmes' cowardly act will have started a wave of these, IMO. I hope I'm wrong.
