Bist Du ein Homophobe?

Something about the my countrymen (at least on my Dad's side) in Germany loves conformity. The German state of Baden-W├╝rttenberg is requiring applicants for citizenship to exhibit their "loyalty to German values," by passing a test designed to, among other things, root out intolerance toward homosexuality. I guess you can no longer be a good German if you don't give Brokeback Mountain at least three stars.

That's an improvement, but I fear that they still don't get it.

I thought the test for "German values" was going to ask "do you think that aryans are the master race."

It is apparently a kinder and gentler master race.
