Michael Lucas has another bash-Europe/Muslims column in The Advocate, which has taken a pretty hard anti-Gaza line since the flotilla was raided. I noticed a few factual errors, and could probably find more if I actually googled any of his statements (does he know that French PACS aren't "common-law marriage"? Or that there aren't any videos on YouTube of "beheadings[...] of gay people" in Gaza? Or that mass migration of Muslims into Europe started before the Holocaust during European colonialism of the Middle East and North Africa?), but fact-checking Lucas sounds a lot like spell-checking the proverbial million monkeys typing away.
He's making a "My religion/culture/country is better than yours" argument, which always fall apart. If Israel is better than all Muslim countries put together because they have anti-discrimination legislation and gays in the military, then Spain (the target of his column) is even better because they have gay marriage. Spaniards, like Advocate readers, don't need Michael Lucas to "invite" them "to reason."
If you want to play the "cultural superiority is proven through gay-friendliness" game, then, seriously, don't go up against Spain. Unless you're Sweden.
