Another Victory for Humanism!

Kudos Britain! You have vindicated yourself!
CNN just came out with an article saying that the new 50 Pound Note put out in Britain wil have the face of Alan Turing on it. Turing was a "code breaker, visionary mathematician, father of computer science and artificial intelligence". He broke the nazi Enigma code in WWII saving millions of lives and shortening the war by 2 years! However, according to the law of the time, he was forced to commit suicide in 1954 for being gay!

Yes, he was chemically castrated for the 'crime' of being a homosexual. Sadly, homosexuality is still a crime in many countries thanks to religions.
