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.

You are missing the issue and history of this deal. No simple gay person had such punishment only because they admitted it in front of a police officer. There is much more to this. The issue would more likely be child molestation. The children and public would have been spared the facts in any written document in those times.


I have always found that open minded means very closed minded or hate you if you disagree.
