Longtime gay rights campaigner Google has kicked off a new effort to "legalise love" in countries that criminalise homosexuality. At a Global LGBT Workplace Summit in London late last week, the web giant's European head of diversity and inclusion, Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe, reportedly outlined the initiative. According to Gay Star News, the Google wonk mentioned Singapore and Poland as the starting points for the rainbow flag-waving search engine's campaign. "Singapore wants to be a global financial centre and world leader, and we can push them on the fact that being a global centre and a world leader means you have to treat all people the same, irrespective of their sexual orientation," he was quoted as saying. The company plans to eventually tackle issues of homophobia and anti-gay legislation wherever its offices are based.
Have you ever heard such rubbish in all your life? What is the matter with these homosexuals anyway? I really don't care what people do behind closed doors, but I just wish they would keep the door closed! As one commenter observes: There are two problems with Google's "Legislate love" position. First, the corporation is firmly asserting, by implication, that the majority of Muslims, Chritians, and Jews in the world are wrong on a theological matter. It is claiming that a sin is not a sin, and in doing so Google is deliberately subvert parents' instruction to their children on matters of morality and of right relationship to God. You might be okay with that, but let's certainly not pretend that it's not one genuine aspect of what's going on.
