I've read this comic strip for many years, and today's edition concerns me a lot. I don't read comics/'funnies' to get pelted with ideological doctrine; I read them to get a lightweight chuckle each morning before long hard days in... yes, an office.
Please continue to provide a little oasis from the stresses of daily life. A lot of hot-button topics that are worth discussing--like abortion, homosexuality, marijuana, and guns--aren't inherently funny, but are inherently divisive/schismatic, and I don't want to read about them in Dilbert.
There is not anything 'political' or 'controversial' about equality. One is either for it or against it based on their own personal integrity, or lack of it. That covers race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or anything else you care to mention. One believes in equality or they do not. Period.
Hitler blamed everything that was wrong (or he perceived as wrong) in Germany on the Jews. Now India can blame everything that's wrong in their country on the homosexuals -- just like the Westboro Baptist Church does in the U.S. Maybe the Westboro Baptist Church will now move to India. We can hope.
Of course, any nation can pass any law they see fit. What I was saying was that attitudes linger, long after the master is gone. There's an old saying, "You can take the man out of slavery, but you can't take slavery out of the man." Not until he's ready to take it out. And it takes longer for some than others.
As for blaming the previous administration, I think the bush administration created that template by blaming 911 on the Clinton administration, so I'm not weeping over the current one doing it.
