Iran Executes Homosexuals

Every once-in-awhile I read someone claiming that Iran is a democracy. Democracies don't execute people because of who they love. And yet, The Moderate Republican reports that Iran just executed two homosexual men for being gay.

"Barbaric. Truly Barbaric," says Dennis at The Moderate Republican.

Yes. And I only wish such threads of evil didn't reach into America. But I am reminded of the hate-mongers who had such dark hearts that they protested the funeral of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man killed in Wyoming back in 1998.

Obviously I am well aware that there is a vast difference between a few citizens protesting a funeral and a government ordering the deaths of two men for being gay. But there is shared evil there. There are those in all countries and in all religions who virulently hate homosexuals.

And it is wrong. It is wrong in all its forms.
