I have an idea on how they can test to see if some of these men are really gay.

Quote:
Newly-elected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with government ministers Monday to quell security concerns about a plan to give asylum to 25,000 Syrian refugees. One of the anticipated policy changes would allow single gay men to seek refugee status while excluding "lone" straight men as potential terrorists, according to the Ottawa Citizen.

While Canada's refugee plan is focused primarily on families, women and children, government officials have acknowledged that gay men face intense persecution and will also give them priority status. Response to the plan was met with cautious concern, however, not because gay men were being allowed, but out of concern for implementing a blanket ban on "lone-male" refugees and what constitutes a family.

Perhaps, they are 'culling' potential prospects of them for their newly elected 'dudes'? whistle

Men in families are not necessarily gay so the OP title is not correct.

Neither WERE those ONLY from 'Syria'! Maybe, even "BI"-guys as well, eh? robot

Well what did you expect, also single women (lesbian or otherwise) are not included.

Why am I getting the impression there may be more (or should In say less) to this then the OP implies.

AHH here is the original story

http://www.advocate.com/world/2015/11/24/canada-plans-welcom...

So its because they are more vulnerable, and not because they are less likely to be terrorists. But yes, it does claim that single men may be excluded in case they are terrorists.

Also it seems to be an opinion of what might happen, and not anything even semi official.

Does it bother you that many people have complained [in your direction] that they can't understand your posts, or that I mostly don't read them only because I can't make heads or tails out of them?

For me the problem is not your use of color, it is that the words don't seem to mean to me as what they mean to you. You told me you are a native speaker. So, now I can wonder how it is that you don't seem to understand English in the same way I do.

I would want to communicate my thoughts so that the readers understood them and now write in a way that nobody else could understand.

whistle Hey, you know: "to each accordingly with their compunction"; and with 'clarifying' further, then Steve, this is sans "making fun" of yourself explicitly, as "having fun" implicitly, since we're within their RSP presently.

One post by RW usually contains more entertainment, insight and sense than the entire, collected contributions of half the people in RSP.

In my mind, I magine Robert as some wise owl in the forest on drugs. Mumbling cryptic solutions to the problems of mankind, as well as singing songs by ELO on request.

I look at it this way. Sure, Robert's (Grogs') manner of expression is odd but if one looks past that he has a lot worthwhile to say. I'd not want everyone to type as he does but he is a fixture of the Geek. We're not that jolly conformist are we that we eschew even one oddball among us, especially when that oddball offers a lot of insight?

Do not to someone what you don't want done to you.
