Capitalism is against everything that Christ taught. Go back and reread the Acts of the Apostles. Look at how they lived their lives sharing everything.
Seems to me that people in a capitalist society have more to share than people elsewhere. HRC and Lambda Legal have been beneficiaries of what I have to share by virtue of the capitalist economy of the United States.
I'm curious. What is the status of the gay rights movement in Central America? Or Cuba? Or anywhere else in the third world, for that matter.
I have a suspicion -- though I couldn't prove it because it's not something I'm motivated to investigate -- that there is a fundamental link between a nation's prosperity and a nation's time and willingness to attend to issues such as gay rights. Otherwise, all energy would be diverted to everyday survival.
