  • If you're gay, don't be going to Iran!

    This is an abridged version of the article I read. So sick:



    Global anger grows over teen executions in Iran

    International human rights organizations are calling for action to be taken against Iran after officials publicly executed two gay teenagers last week.

    The two boys, who were identified only by their initials, were executed for having sex with each other. Homosexuality is illegal under the Sharia law, which allows execution of children as young as 9 years of age.

    The teens were also charged with raping a 13-year-old boy, although the majority of news services say this charge has been trumped up by the Iranian state in a bid to avoid international criticism.

    Activists believe the boys gave their "confession" after weeks of torture. They were detained and subjected to beatings by local police for up to two weeks before their death.

    However, Iran is standing firm on its decision to kill the two young men. Last week, ultraconservative deputy Ali Asgari stated that the punishment "served them right."

    Jeez... if they'd just change that to banishment...

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

      you know, for all the troubles we have here in the states, i feel so lucky right now that i can raise my children here. it's so heartbreaking to hear of such pain, hated and repression.
      please be afraid.

        Don't think that our lovely friend in the White House wouldn't do this to us if he could. Remember this is the man that said that he'd love for this country to be a dictatorship because "it'd be easier"!

          4 years passes quickly enough and we can be rid of him.

              Well, technically he's right about that: dictatorship IS easier.... for a small country. Very inefficient for a large one though.
