Inexcusable Abuse of Muslim Law: Gays In Iraq Targeted for Murder (Video)

Six gay men were abandoned by their tribes and later murdered recently in Iraq.

CNN reports on mistreatment of gay men in Iraq. Apparently, they had more freedom of expression under Saddam Hussein than they currently have due to militias patrolling the streets of Iraq cities.

Intolerant Iraqis consider gays to be "criminals and terrorists" and say that homosexuality is "against [Muslim] law, so they should be punished by law".

Despite my "conservative" nature, I'm could care less about gays, same-sex marriage or any other lifestyle choice a person chooses for himself.

When it comes to such social issues, I'm pretty Libertarian; "to each his own".



It's pretty despicable for rogue peace keepers to murder these people for their sexual orientation. It just shows another example of the radical nature of Islam.

Remember, Afghanistan recently legalized domestic violence.

For all of the world's efforts to bring peace and prosperity to the Muslim world, it's cases like this which show they may not be terribly receptive to the assistance.

Everyone is quick to point fingers at human rights violations in China and the African Continent, but we have to mince words when it comes to the radical laws of Islam. I'm all for freedom of expression and religious tolerance, but not when the laws of religion supersede the laws and rights of man.

No matter your religion or sexual orientation, murder is dead wrong. No matter how much you disagree with another's lifestyle, you have no right to persecute him to the point of death.

In reality, this is exactly the kind of Western "freedom" the Muslim World detests.
