Gay Iraqis Shot to Death

Did you catch this news about six Iraqi gay men who were shot to death because of their sexuality? Their own tribemates carried out the "execution" and the men's own relatives were the ones who reported them to the tribe. Heartbreaking that such things can still happen today.

yes, I saw that in the news, and it was shocking. Hearing of things like this sure does make you appreciate being where we are in the world.

Well Mr. Radioman, it's not where we are but the ignorant and bigoted people around us that we have to worry about. You can just as easily be a victim of LGBT hate crime here in Rochester.
