After reading the many comments here, I have a couple of comments myself.
1) A majority of you are ready to throw him under the train, or bus, or whatever is the most convienient for crimes which he was already been convicted of and served a sentence for. Don't you all realize that he payed for his crimes according to the law.
2.) I'd like to know how many of the posters are Christians. By the tone of the comments, I'd say NONE, but my intuition says otherwise. Makes me proud to be an atheist.
3) Read "Les Miserables", this person sounds like he should be named Jean Valjean.
4.) This one is most important, and has been my opinion for a long time. Many of you seem to have all the answers to all of our societal problems, too bad some of you wouldn't run for public office and use your self-stated expertise to change the way things a done.
I know I'll get lambasted for my views, but I just take the comments from hence they come, mostly from BEMs.
Maybe you should post your picture here Taxpoor, so we can judge for ourselves whether or not you are a strange man. What makes him so strange, and how can you tell by looking at his picture?
So jpat, how do you know that these people that wish to be married to someone of the same gender want to" lie with a male as one lies with a female?" What gives you, or anyone else, the right to think about what these folks are, or are not doing behind closed doors in the privacy of their own home? If two men, or two women, could prove that they didn't "lie with a male as one lies with a female" or lie with a woman as a man would lie with a woman, would you let them marry then? It seems to me that those that want to overturn the law, only wish to do so because of what they perceive as going on where they have no right to think about what is going on. Doesn't the bible tell us to judge not lest we be judged. Jpat, it seems that you are judging these people without any knowledge, so you are prejudging. Doesn't that make you prejudiced? Maybe you all that have views such as this, should take some time out of your busy day and do some soul searching about why you actually feel the way you do on this issue, close the bible first though, and just think about on a human level.
