    Once, traveling in China, I had a Chinese man tell me in all seriousness that China does not have any gay people but that gays were only a Western “problem”.

    My mouth dropped to the floor along with all the noodles I was eating !

    One of my Emergency Room colleagues, a gay female physician, was once ranting about how religious bigotry oppresses gays. I interrupted her justified complaints adding, “I am sorry to say that it is far worse that you may think. I god-free communist countries, anti-gay propaganda is steady and strong. Humans are dangerous animals — with or without religion. Bigotry is far deeper than religion.”

    Knowing that I myself was religion-free, she sighed, “Damn, that is so sad!”
    I sadly shook my head in agreement.

  4. While life in South Africa is not perfect, the constitution gives full rights to EVERYONE and a member of their Supreme Court is opening gay. There is hope. Check out the Freedom Charter adopted in the 1950’s and used when voting rights was given to ALL citizens.
