This country was built under God, we mention it in our pledge. First off, I love your music and the richness that all your songs have. It’s interesting that those who support gay marriage are labelled as ‘heretic’ and those who do not support are labelled as ‘bigots’. As said i can't change people heart, God does, and also theirselves. Although a man who had worked as a prostitute could not be raped as a matter of law, it was ruled that even a man who was "disreputable (famosus) and questionable (suspiciosus)" had the same right as other free men not to have his body subjected to forced sex.  In a book on rhetoric from the early 1st century BC, the rape of a freeborn male ( ingenuus ) is equated with that of a materfamilias as a capital crime.  The Lex Julia de vi publica,  recorded in the early 3rd century AD but "probably dating from the dictatorship of Julius Caesar," defined rape as forced sex against "boy, woman, or anyone"; the rapist was subject to execution, a rare penalty in Roman law.  It was a capital crime for a man to abduct a free-born boy for sexual purposes, or to bribe the boy's chaperon (comes) for the opportunity.  Negligent chaperones could be prosecuted under various laws, placing the blame on those who failed in their responsibilities as guardians rather than on the victim.  Although the law recognized the victim's blamelessness, rhetoric used by the defense indicates that attitudes of blame among jurors could be exploited.  In his collection of twelve anecdotes dealing with assaults on chastity, the historian Valerius Maximus features male victims in equal number to female.  In the " mock trial " case described by the elder Seneca, an adulescens (a man young enough not to have begun his formal career) was gang-raped by ten of his peers; although the case is imaginary, Seneca assumes that the law permitted the successful prosecution of the rapists.  Another hypothetical case imagines the extremity to which a rape victim could be driven: the free-born male who was raped commits suicide.  The rape of an ingenuus is among the worst crimes that could be committed in Rome, along with parricide, the rape of a female virgin, and robbing a temple.  Rape was nevertheless one of the traditional punishments inflicted on a male adulterer by the wronged husband,  though perhaps more in revenge fantasy than in practice.  The threat of one man to subject another to anal or oral rape ( irrumatio ) is a theme of invective poetry, most notably in Catullus's notorious Carmen 16,  and was a form of masculine braggadocio.  The Roman soldier, like any free and respectable Roman male of status, was expected to show self-discipline in matters of sex.
