Illegal to be gay is different from homosexual acts illegal. In other words, they have to catch you "in the act".) Actually in the US, in many states, homosexual acts are illegal, and rarely prosecuted but I think there have been a few cases where prosecuted.

I was shocked to see India on this list as well. One of the economic powerhouses to be with such policies.. Shocking.

Egypt, however, is known to have some extremely strict policies. Also being a popular holiday destination, many homosexuals get caught there. They also invaded clubs of native homosexuals who were imprisoned and physically harmed.

Mahmoud Asgari (16) and Ayaz Marhoni (18) were tortured and then hanged in Iran for being gay July 19, 2005.

Iran ‘Must Stop Youth Executions’
BBC News, July 28, 2005

By Steven Eke

A US-based human rights organisation has called on Iran to end the execution of juvenile offenders. Human Rights Watch (HRW) said Iran was in breach of international agreements it had signed up to.

The call follows last week’s public hanging of two youths convicted of still unclear sexual offences.

Iran insists the youths were convicted of raping a younger boy. However gay rights organisations say the youths were executed for being homosexual.

‘Inhumane punishment’

The case has had considerable global resonance.

Leading European and US gay organisations and publications have already launched letter-writing protest campaigns, and plan to hold demonstrations outside Iranian embassies over the coming weeks.

In a statement issued on Thursday, HRW said Iran was one of only five countries to continue executing juveniles and called for an end to what it called an inhumane punishment.

The Iranian judiciary has reacted angrily to the international outrage surrounding the public hanging of Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni, whom rights activists claim were aged 16 and 18.

Officials said they had been sentenced to whipping and hanging for rape, drinking alcohol and disturbing public order, and deserved the punishment they got.

Rare, close-up pictures of the execution were rapidly published on the internet. In them, officials can be seen placing nooses around the necks of the two obviously distressed, young men.

Public executions are not unusual in Iran but the execution of juveniles often attracts international opprobrium.

The case has been adopted as a cause celebre by gay rights groups.

They say the majority of media reports suggest the official charges were fabricated to reduce any public sympathy for the youths and that the real reason was the youths’ sexual orientation.

Homosexuality is illegal in almost all Muslim countries, and punishable by death in many of them.

But gay and human rights groups say Iran’s record is particularly shocking, having executed possibly thousands of gay men since the Islamic revolution.

What most of you don't realize is that homosexuals do exist in these countries. There's a large group of homosexuals in Pakistani society. It's just swept under the rug and not acknowledged or they're usually men on the downlow. It's quite sad. I'd hate to be in their place.

of course - don't you all judge people because of the rules thier governments made.
I'm not sure that people in syria care for homosexuality at all - there are alot of non-practicing muslims and a big group of christians there as well. but they have a dictator - and he is the one that decides.

in the same way - you CAN be homosexual and have homosexual activity in many "liberal" countries - yet your own family will kick you out and deny you ever lived.
so once again - state rules don't apply anything about people.
that said - I don't understand death penalty for any reason, let alone sexual acts that are NOT violent and abusive. each democratic country is entitled to decide whatever is illegal in it if they wish though, and if a new Israeli rule would decide i cannot practice my sexual orientation - i would understand, though i might move out - and i'm sure they would take that in consideration (not me as an individual, but the phenomenon of people leaving because of that).
my last point is that some people here are shocked about anti-gay rulings, yet sit aside and let other anti-humane rules untouched.
personally - in a country that treats arabs and non-jews so badly - i don't feel there is justice, even though i can have sex with anybody i wish.

What gives you the idea that India is liberal? Being democratic does not necessarily mean the nation is liberal. But of course compared to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, then yeah India is liberal. Also I have not heard gays being tried for homosexual activies in India. In any case i most conservative societies in Asia like in Japan, Taiwan, Singapore and other advanced Asian nations, homosexuality is not tolerated but may or not be considered illegal. It only seems to be in the West and especially in Christian nations where homosexuality is tolerated. Judaism, Hinduism and yes even Buddhism tend to have more conservative views on homosexuality. In none of these nations can gays marry, form organizations etc.. Ex-King Shihanouk of Buddhist Cambodia almost caused a scandal when he said that gays should marry.

western nations are not really christian, they are for the most part de facto secular. christians don't tolerate homosexuality anymore than other religions (like in jamaica for example) and devote christians are usually very homophobic.

Yeah you would wish that European nations were not Christian, right? I will only consider them not Christian if nations like yours do not consider themselves Muslim, Buddhist etc... Also in Christian nations, gays are not in prison for being gay, even in Jamaica. One of the most tyrannical Christian nation is Zimbabwe where its leader Mugabe is homophobic. But gays are not imprisoned or executed for homosexual activies despite Mugabe's prejudices.

So a nation like Vietnam which is communist and thus ruled by an atheist government is still considered a Buddhist nation. Turkey which is secular is stll a Muslim nation, India which is a secular democracy is a Hindu nation, Israel is Jewish, Austria is Christian etc... Even the least religious nation in the world which could be North Korea can be classified as a Buddhist country. The Kims have incorporated many Buddhist traditions in their Juche ideology. So countries in the West are Christian.

Last but not least, devout Christians are not necessarily homophobic. Martin Luther King, Jesse Jackson, Tony Blair, Jimmy Carter are not homophobic and are (or were for Martin) deeply religious Christians. Even people on the right like Gerald Ford are pro gay. Ordinary people like Cindy Sheehan are religious too but she does not seem to be anti-gay. And religious Christians like JustineTime are not homophobic. I myself am agnostic but am a firm supporter of Christian culture. I don't consider myself homophobic and I know many religious Christians including Catholics who are not homophobes.

lol, but i am from "your" culture, my parents are nominally christian and i was actually baptised or whatever that thing is called when they give you the name at church (as you can see i care so little about religion that i don't even know what it's called in english). i think that our civilisation has advanced a lot mostly by abandoning christian tradition, not by sticking to it. official churches are as far as i know all homophobic and have reactionary views about human sexuality in general, but they are not really influential anymore. and i'm not sure you can call secular european societies christian. as i said, my parents are nominally christian, but they never cared about their religion and the majority of europeans are like that. it is perhaps true that people from other cultures haven't abandoned their religious traditions as much as europeans did, but we are surely not liberal because of our religion, but in spite of it.

I remember some of your posts in the past and I was in the impression that you were Muslim. Perhaps becuse you kept defending people from the banlieu in France. Anyway I was editing my post and as you can see I changed quite a bit. Churches are very influential in the U.S., Asia, Africa and believe it or not even in European nations. Just because people don't regularly go to Church does not mean that majority of Christians have abandoned their faiths. One example, The World Council of Churches is quite prominent here in Geneva. Churches do a lot of charity work here.

We will have to agree to disagree but to me European nations except Albania, Turkey and Azerbaijan are all Christian. Even Bosnia the majority of population is Christian (Orthodox and Catholic). :)

Most of these countries are socially backwards. In many, homosexual acts are illegal but overlooked. Like Singapore.

India is an economic powerhouse but socially archaic.

You can also add Iraq under Saddam's regime (and Afghanistan under Taliban). The socialist paradise that liberals are nostalgic of. As you can see other socialist arab nations like Syria and Libya enforce these laws. So still think that getting rid of Saddamw as a bad idea? I think that the answer is that if it was Clinton who gor rid of him then it would be a terrific idea but since it was Bush then it was a horrible thing to do.

Lord Nelson, just because something positive occurs by happenstance doesn't make it good policy. Obvious case of the end justifying the means... even if it were true that the end is different now than before... which is unclear.

I think you have a twisted argument here. Would you then say that US should invade all countries with laws against homosexuality? If not, then you can't use the argument for invasion of Iraq, can you?

There were 1001 reasons to invade Iraq but I've already expressed myself 1000 times on this subject. I will only say this, the Kurds and Shiites of Iraq are happier now than under Saddam Hussein. You who likes polls, there were over 1000 Iraqis over all of Iraq who were interviewed and where the najority said that they are happy that Saddam is gone and that that they are happy with their lifes. The poll which was conducted by BBC, ABC News etc.. had a whole bunch of other questions. I may edit this message when I get hold of the magazine which will probably be sometime beginning next year and if I remember. Now I'm going on vacation so I'll be taking a break from WTA forums. Hope you guys won't miss me too much. ;) :lol:

As said a few times hardly suprising...fact is there is so much social unrest in the majority of those named, allowing gay men to practice their right is far from becoming legal.

Remember also alot of these countries still stone women to death to having a child out of wed-lock...amongst other horrific prehistoric agenda's. Jamaica though? Wow!! Will keep my dollars visiting a country where I can sample the native hospitality should I choose to.

Kick all these dicks out of their diamond encrusted thrones and put women in charge....nice thought huh?

At the end of the day, their beliefs are theirs...right or wrong...nice to know where to avoid though.
