Aviatsiya, indeed. I'm afraid that more and more I'm beginning to see just how incredibly intolerant American society is, to our unending shame. Of all the western democracies, the U.S. is the only country with such self-righteous, fundamentalist, puritanic, out-dated, intolerant ideas, expressed not only by some members of the general populace, but by politicians of great power, even by our own President who described Santorium as "inclusive". When I heard that comment, I was overcome and shaken to my core with shame, that my President, the president of the United States of America, land of the free and home of the brave, would endorse such sickening, medieval comments. We have come such a long way, from the old days of being 3/5th human, from the dark days of women as second class citizens, but despite the monumental strides in tolerance made by all other western societies, we continue to lag stubbornly behind, in the name of God and all that is morally "right".
Quite clearly we still have a very long way to go.
