In the News "Peers and scientists including Professor Stephen Hawking are once again pushing for an official pardon for codebreaker Alan Turing. Turing's death from cyanide poisoning in 1954 was ruled a suicide, coming after his conviction for gross indecency at a time when homosexuality was illegal." The fact that he still hasn't been pardoned is an utter disgrace.

So, we shouldn't honour Anne Frank? I mean, she clearly violated the laws of the time so, fcuk her, right?

Thom, you are talking as though the morality of Sexual indecency is equivalent to a crime committed by the Nazis in the 40s. Its different, homosexuals' behaviors are not accepted generally in conservative countries like ours, and so we behave as much as the Nazis? And WHO ARE YOU to dictate that it is morally acceptable to just have same sex relationships in a society? Do you really have that evidence(by experimenting it yourself) that society remains healthy even if homosexuals practices are rampant?
It is still open to debate, while murder is murder from the very beginning.
