Discussion of religion in the context of LGBT rights is only allowed in the LGBT Rights and Religion Thread.

Discussion of religion in any other context is off topic in all of the "LGBT rights..." threads.

Attempting to bait others into bringing up religion is also not allowed.

Fairly sure Scotland doesn't get to make such a decision unilaterally, since Westminster controls things like immigration and asylum laws, and UKIP will throw a temper tantrum and start chucking their toys about if William Hague even considers it, but it's still an awesome thing for us to do.

Anti-gay religious group gets funding from Ottawa to work in Uganda
From the Star: "An evangelical organization that describes homosexuality as a “perversion” and a “sin” is receiving funding from Ottawa for its work in Uganda, where gays and lesbians face severe threats."

Yet another study (and middle finger to Regnerus) showing that same-sex couples are no worse than heterosexual couples when it comes to raining children, this one apparently the biggest to date.

Posted in this thread because the study is Australian.

Portugal according to Hetalia
The link is in Portuguese, but I'll translate the main bit for you all: The proposal of co-adoption by same sex couples got 112 votes against and 107 votes in favor in the Parliament, in terms of its articles, so there wasn't even a global final voting session.

I feel ashamed for my country today.

[up]Indeed. Maybe after the European and/or the Legislative elections, it will pass.

What do you mean cows aren't gay? Cows are very gay. That's actually how you tell females are in heat.

Wikipedia's page on animals with homosexual behaviour does list cattle among the animals with homosexual behaviour, complete with a citation.

As for Murdoch, my personal favourite in such instances is "the coal rack calling the paper black".

"I won't say the proposed law is not a cause of concern but I don't think the law will affect the LGBT community in a serious way," he said.

Perhaps Uganda's Rolling Stone and Red Pepper can sober up that perception...

It would be nice to see UKIP not be utter bastards for a change, but that'd defeat the purpose of them being UKIP I guess.

Archbishop of Canterbury waves white flag on gay marriage.

"I think the church has reacted by fully accepting that it's the law, and should react on Saturday by continuing to demonstrate in word and action, the love of Christ for every human being."

[up]Well, you've got to stick to your principles, dammit! It's a perfectly good fence! (Even if it occasionally does get moved out from under you so you have shift to get back onto it.)

A procrastination in of itself
We do have a both a Gay Marriage in Britain thread and a Religious thread (which seems appropriate and this is about one church).

Also I'd like to note that we have a ton of LGBT rights threads.

...This is going to have ramifications throughout Asia and Africa, you know — not just in This Sceptred Isle, let alone Europe. tongue

At the very least, somebody in Uganda is going to very quickly be saying something stupid about it. I've already set my stopwatch. (I'm just hoping they'll stick to saying... -_-)

Now now, there's no need to be judgmental. Their stupidity is just as valid as our common sense.
