just to be more detailed - it's not a pure communism, it's some form of
communism-based authoritarian way. (btw, communism sucks anyway)

I'm not religious one, however I suppose homosexuality is wrong (or it's
some kind of disease to limit population with malformed genes). BUT, I
will *never* oppose them just because they are wrong some kind.
Moreover, I do *not* care about it. And I do *not* support any movement
against homosexuality. BUT, I do *not* support any movement supporting
this, especially those who are using dirty methods such as we can
observe right now (against RMS I mean), and going further - those
methods are going to looks like a pure fascism against normal people.

GNU is a technical community - and as a community shouldn't care about
someone's politics view or homosexuality. It should be neutral for such
