    By the way, the type of behavior that is considered a "pro-gay rally" includes TALKING about being gay in public, where children can hear it. Or holding hands.

    They can move them as long as it isn't to Vancouver! We are still paying for the last one and can't afford to host again. Not when we can't afford to pay our teachers!

    In all honesty, as much as I would love to see the Olympics just up & move, it probably can't happen logistically. There is just too much infrastructure needed. What is more realistic is for the IOC to negotiate something along the lines of the Olympic Village will be neutral ground, and not subject to certain local laws. Athletes will be able to kiss & hold hands with their partners, gay visitors will be welcomed as anyone else, and anti-gay violence will not be tolerated. There might be some precedent for it. I remember reading that the IOC does something like this in regards to alcohol consumption regardless of local drinking age laws. If underage athletes go to a restaurant outside, they can't drink, but they can drink in their own apartment or in the "Club Bud" and "Heinekin House" sponsored areas.
