    And how homosexuality is related to the crimes of drug dealers, why even bring them in this discussion.

    I was talking about the OP's beliefs, since he is the one who started this thread. I felt like pointing out the inconsistency that I observed in the opening post of this thread.

    I honestly wasn't trying to do that. I wouldn't. What you mean is, I think, that people who sell illegal drugs (weed, heroine, cocaine, opium) should be killed?

    If so, I don't see why this shouldn't extend to people selling alcohol. If I've misunderstood, I apologise.

    Many believe that homosexuals bring aids to the world even though that some blamed the monkey.

    People will find ways to take the edge off life with or without drug dealers.

    As someone who is Aussie and therefore had this publicized EVERYWHERE since the whole ordeal started, can I just say, that there is speculation that this could have been prevented. The federal coppers, apparently had some information concerning the traffickers in question and could have arrested them before they went to Bali.

    I'm sick of my FB wall being all sad for them. They took drugs into that country, (actually I think they were smuggling it out of the country, but whatever) they should face the consequences. **** em I say. (Although my sympathies are with their families, I ain't completely heartless.)

    I do see a lot of news stories covering this and the families reactions to it choking up my TV in the near future, though. *Le sigh*

    Nobody 'brings' AIDS to the world. HIV, which causes AIDS, is transmitted via the contact of bodily fluids. It is originally derived from chimpanzees and macaques. Two separate strains.

    The bleeding hearts are out in force that's for sure! Paul Murray on Sky News will be unpopular today having given those who are crying foul a solid does of reality!

    They're criminals, why don't we give Ivan Malat a minute silence too?

    A Melbourne university is setting up a scholarship in their honour.

    What a complete joke.

    OMG right?!! I don't think they should have been killed, but this martyring of these two drug dealers is quite disgusting.

    And many people believe Earth is flat. It doesn't make them right.

    Chimpanzee's are known to have SIV which is a direct relative to HIV. Most likely it was contracted to humans via contact with chimpanzee blood when hunted for food.

    I don't see how drug dealers are anymore guilty of immoral activity than soda manufacturers.

    Don't think that analogy is strong enough? Change the product provided to anything that you find destructive:
    • Cigarettes
    • Alcohol
    • Anti-depressants
    • Aspirin
    • Sleeping Pills
    • Caffeine
    • Gambling
    • Gluttony (all food/beverages)
    • The Internet
    • Sex
    • Shopping
    The only reason that there is a negative stigma associated with narcotics is because we have created one. While some narcotics are very obviously damaging to one's health, so are many other "normal" and accepted objects and practices in our society.

    Yes. Why wouldn't I? It wouldn't have been the first disease to transfer to humans from animals.

    My brother became addicted to his pain pills that he was prescribed by a doctor and given by a pharmacist. This caused a lot of problems, he pushed those around him out of his life, he hurt those close to him, and legally he is still facing the consequences of his actions, actions that were the result of his opioid addiction.
    And, what if I say you should die for being so strongly against vaccinations, which puts other people at risk? But no one has even hinted at that.
