    Kim Tong Hyung, for the Associated Press, writes, "In conservative South Korea, gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people are harshly stigmatized and struggle to be politically visible, while a powerful Christian lobby immobilizes politicians seeking to pass anti-discrimination laws. That stigma is amplified in the military, where most able-bodied South Korean men are required to serve about two years as the country maintains a large force in the face of potential conflict with North Korea."

    Never mind that homophobia is widespread in Asia and deep. Lack of progress on gay rights laws in Korea is Christianity's fault. Does anyone know the veracity of this writer's claim?

    I don't know but I heard the collapse of the Atlanta Falcon in the super bowl was the fault of Christianity.
