    Leo Kilroy, 34, who came out as a gay man in his late 20s after he left his teaching post, poses in Merrion Square in Dublin October 19, 2011. Gay, lesbian or bisexual teachers in many Irish schools -- which are still dominated by the Catholic Church -- risk discrimination or even the sack if they reveal their sexuality, thanks to a law that permits religious employers to penalise employees for actions undermining their religious standards.

    Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio (R) sits with his lawyers and talks to the media about the Department of Justice's investigative findings accusing the Maricopa Sheriff's Office of racial profiling and a pattern of discrimination at the Sheriff's office in Phoenix, Arizona December 15, 2011. The Obama administration accused a firebrand Arizona sheriff on Thursday of engaging in racial profiling of Latinos and making unlawful arrests in a crack down on illegal immigrants. The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office -- led by Arpaio, a sheriff famous for making inmates wear pink underwear -- regularly violated U.S. civil rights laws and the Constitution, the U.S. Justice Department said in a scathing report.

    FILE - This Thursday June 23, 2011 file photo shows right-wing politician Geert Wilders giving a brief statement after a Dutch court acquitted him of hate speech and discrimination in Amsterdam. This week's debt deal for Europe doubles down on the concept of European integration, and could provide further ammunition for the nationalist movements that have been gaining in popularity partly as a reaction to the idea of a single Europe. In order to back the investment in the euro, leaders in the eurozone have advocated a deepening integration of economic policies, transferring power from the national governments to the European level. But "euroskeptics" have made advances in arguing that Europe's elites are turning the bloc into a federal superstate against the wishes of their citizens. This week's developments threaten to boost their arguments. "This is a big step, only it's in the wrong direction," Dutch Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders said. (AP Photo/Evert Elzinga, File)
