Gays in Iran

Contrary to Ahmenijad's laughable denials, gays do exist in Iran and Canadian TV did an interesting report on this back in February 2007:

Part 2, Part 3.

We have a ways to go in the West when it comes to how gays are treated, but we are light-years ahead of all predominantly Muslim countries. This is something the Left should remember and keep in mind when it demonizes the West. The late Falwell and others like him are in no way comparable to the leaders of Islamic fundamentalism. Ahmenijad can say the stupid things he does about gays for the simple matter that when they are found out they are killed. State-sanctioned violence against gays isn't something we have to face, unlike those in this report.
