The Religion of Peace strikes again:
Two men have been hanged in a public square in northern Iran after being found guilty of homosexuality a semi-official newspaper reported on Sunday.
The daily newspaper Kayhan said that the execution was carried out in the northern city of Gorgan. The paper reported the men had been found guilty under Islamic law of lavat, or homosexual sex.
According to the article, over 4,000 homosexuals have been executed in Iran since the revolution of 1979. Hopefully, gay rights groups will be more forceful than they have been in condemning this behavior.
Several European countries halted extraditions of Iranian gays back to country following the executions. But, both the US and Britain have been silent on the issue.
Working to change this policy would be an excellent start.
