How scandalous... You are peacefully riding a bike in Holland among
the beautiful gardens and all of a sudden you find this...

"a gay couple kissing in a flowery field."

Well, I hope you don't get offended by sexuality, which seems to be a
feature of Dutch democracy...

"Sexual democracy becomes central even more than religious freedom
when discussing the Dutch vision of democracy."

http://www.bidoun.com/issues/issue_10/05a_all.html

And I believe that the fact that the Greeks created democracy and that
they had very liberal views about sexuality is more than a historical
coincidence. Religious censorship and democracy are at odds. Real
democracy is built upon other issues that improve the quality of life
for all, for example fighting poverty or building bike facilities,
another area where the Dutch excel.

"In the Gospels, Jesus himself never mentions homosexuality. And he
seldom even discusses sexual sin. In contrast, the Gospels are full of
Jesus' teachings against self-righteousness, greed, pride, bigotry,
sexism, racism, and hypocrisy. Like Amos and Isaiah before him, Jesus
roundly condemns the rich and powerful who exploit, cheat, or ignore
the poor. For Jesus, immorality had much more to do with economic
injustice than with sex. He taught a morality of love."

I have no problems with homosexuals, but gay people should be put in
labor camps.

As for bicycle facilities, all that is needed is a wider than normal
right-hand lanes [1] on urban streets, paved shoulders WITHOUT rumble
strips on higher traffic rural highways and proper education (and
penalties for violations) for motor vehicle drivers regarding cyclist's
rights.

Separate facilities are never equal.

[1] Left-hand lane in countries that drive on the left.

I think what matters is what makes the most money to their coffers and
that ain't bicycles, but SUVs. Gays are just a red herring the clever
politicians throw in to keep the sheep confused.

I beg to disagree. What we need is SPEED LIMITS (say 25mph) on the
right lane, enforced by speed cameras. And signs that say, BICYCLES
ARE ENTITLED TO TAKE THE LANE.

It all fits one big picture... The Greeks invented gay liberation and
democracy (but not the bike), but the Dutch found a great use for gay
liberation, democracy and the bike, and America, well, America found
use for none. ;)

Afraid of being called names?
