Huh? How have you missed the national jihad against smoking? Folks can't be
satisfied with just pointing out the dangers of smoking and let people make
their own decisions nor even stop at banning smoking in public. Nooooo.
They have to try to FORCE everyone to quit, even in the privacy of their
own homes where the issue of second-hand smoke is irrelevant.
"Accomodating" my foot!

Pedophilia (molesting children) is not the same thing as homosexuality. You
have confused a an activity that is a form of rape (children being under
the age of consent) with consenting activity between adults.
