The Local: Despair and poverty turn French to far right


  1. Premarital sex turns girls into prostitutes, eh? Does it turn boys into gigolos then?

    1. Agi Tater -- You expect their arguments to have internal consistency? Silly.

  2. On the Gay Star News link, for those unfamiliar with British politics, I should point out that Nigel Farage doesn't belong in the company of those other crazies. He's a nationalist, not a religious fanatic. His party (UKIP) recently reversed its opposition to gay marriage and expelled a member (Julia Gasper) for waging an "unacceptable war" on gay rights. The UKIP is currently the target of an intense smear campaign in Britain, for reasons that have nothing to do with gays or religion one way or the other, and it's important not to get unwittingly caught up in it.

    1. Infidel -- I'm not up-to-speed with UK politics, so thank you for the input.
