While the shiny object media focuses on Chik-fil-A, 4 young men in Iran were due to be hanged for the crime.....of being gay.
Iran court sentence four men from the town of Choram, in the Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Province, to death by hanging for sodomy.
Four men named ‘Saadat Arefi’, ‘Vahid Akbari’, ‘Javid Akbari’ and ‘Houshmand Akbari’ are due to be executed shortly after their verdict was approved recently by high court judges, according to a report from the Human Rights Activist News Agency (HRANA) in Iran.
The four men are said to be from the town of Choram, in the Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad Province of Iran.
According to HRANA and JOOPEA, these four men will be hanged for sodomy according Shari’a law.
A gay activist based in Iran said: ‘Although being gay is not a crime based on Iranian criminal law but this is the most clear statement against same sex-acts in past months.’
He added that ‘there were of our other men hanged in past five months.’
The Christian Bible is not the only religious book that calls sodomy a "sin". The Quran speaks of it 7 times, and none of them are approving.
Now given that the left does not say "BOO" about Islamic regimes and their treatment of homosexuals, one has to wonder if they are biased or are they just afraid. They know that Christians will not "kill" them for anything that they say bad about Christians. Muslims, on the other hand, will shoot them just as soon as look at them. Because they (the left) stands for everything that Islam hates about the west.
No - it's probably nothing that deep. It is just one more instance of the left's hypocrisy on the issues - any issue.
