Homosexuals Being Executed In Iran

I don't know what to say, there are no adequate words

http://news.yahoo.com/s/po/gayrights...E0BHNlYwN0bWE-

SUMMARY: Reports of more executions of gay men in Iran prompted a call for the United Nations to investigate and hold Iran accountable for possible human rights violations.

Reports of more executions of gay men in Iran prompted an international gay rights group to renew its call for the United Nations to investigate and hold Iran accountable for possible human rights violations.

The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) made the appeal on Wednesday, following reports that two young men were publicly hanged on Sunday on charges of homosexuality.

Earlier in the month another young man was hanged in a town square in northern Iran, according to the National Council of Resistance of Iran.

This is sick. My prayers are with these people — on both sides.

gay rights are human rights.

while i have been against the war in Iraq since 2002, i do think we need to have reminders of the kind of religious nihilism that we do face -- and why i do support the vigorous pursuit of the War on Terror (a war that needs some serious defining, but that's another issue).

the islamofascists -- whatever you want to call them, the kind of people who kill gay teenagers -- cannot be underestimated. one of the reasons why we were attacked on 9-11 is the freedom that gay people have here. these fanatics believe that gay men and women deserve to be tortured and executed in hideous fashion, and this is just another reminder.

It was tongue in cheek.

Come on they've both said that we've either deserved 9/11 or the natural disasters we've gone through because of homosexuals...this wouldn't be a far stretch.

Absolutely nothing. They hate homosexuals as much as they do. After all, our religious fanatics have been quite busy lately making sure of that.

Plenty of people in the US do not hate homosexuals melon, I understand what you mean about certain people but they don't speak for me and for so many other people. Please try to keep that in mind. They can't "make sure" of anything for me and for many others.

It is disgusting that the leadership of this country does not speak out against this outrage, certainly they don't condone it. They are condoning it by their silence, one could say.
