82. Actually, homosexuality is treated with less severity that premarital sex in some Islamic countries!
Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 01:51 PM by Shoe Horn
Often with the punishment for the former being a lashing, and the punishment for the latter being death.
Trying to find the documentary I saw this in, something on LinkTV no doubt, will edit in a link when I find it.


Edit:
FOUND IT!!!(also changed 'most' to 'some' in title :blush: )
"The Miscreants of Taliwood"
http://www.linktv.org/programs/miscreants

Here's a yt clip, lol, priceless, such a great doc:

...it's about a lot more than just homosexuality.

"If truth be told, Gittoes was probably fortunate to live through the first thirty seconds of Miscreants. Fortunately, he was only roughed up a bit while filming Islamists building a bonfire of CDs and DVDs in Islamabad, a city that Gittoes reminds viewers contains nuclear weapons. However, as Gittoes pursues his story, he becomes increasingly a part of his own film, at considerably further risk to his own well being.
(...)
Pulling no punches, Gittoes explains how the extreme segregation of the sexes caused most men in the North-West provinces to go on the down-low, regularly engaging in homosexual sex, despite their hetero orientation. Again, Gittoes is probably lucky to be alive."
