United Nations & Lebanon: Execute the Gays!

The United Nations has adopted a bill that allows the execution of gays.

Why?

Well for the past 10 years, there was a resolution that protected people from being executed on the basis of religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc.

But Benin, an African nation, proposed to change the above resolution and remove “sexual orientation” from the list.

So the U.N. countries voted, and the majority of the countries voted in favor of the amendment.

What does this mean?

It means that gays CAN be killed because…well…just because they are gay.

Not surprisingly, Lebanon voted in favor of the resolution amendment, alongside Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Syria & UAE.

Among the countries that were against this amendment were Israel, France, Armenia, UK, USA & Venezuela.

What message is this sending out?

The message is loud and clear.

“Kill the gays. Who fuckin cares?! They are GAY and should not be protected.”

Execute the gays à la Iran circa 2005:

Iran kills two gay men because it suspected they were gay (2005)

      I’m glad that Armenia voted against the amendment. =)

      Well, 79 countries voted in favor, 70 voted against, 17 abstained from voting, and 26 were absent.

      Ummm…recount?!

    Friggin’ bullshit. I can’t stand it when people are too blind to see what is going on around the world. Let those people be gay, straith or bisexual if they want to. It is their live. Not yours !

    F*** YOU! *to the authorities*

    Well looks like whomever represents us in the UN needs to peace out. It’s also interesting Iran voted again.. if you go back to seifandbeirut.com under the homosexuality and Beirut article he wrote- I explain a little of how homosexuality in Iran based on what I’ve been taught in a University setting works and its rather interesting but I guess the only way to be sure is going to Iran which I don’t know how much I’m willing to do that.

    To all of our LGBT brothers and sisters around the world, who are dealing with the threat of losing your lives simply because of who you love, we stand with you in this fight! We can not sit silently by while thousands of innocent people are killed simply because they are gay. We must shout from the mountain tops, scream in the streets, and continue spreading the word that we are not only equal, but incredibly vital to the richness of every culture! This world would be a very pathetic place without the brilliance, talent, and intelligence, that we offer this world! To all of you who think it is okay to suppress us, you are sadly mistaken. We are loud! We are proud and we will prevail. Those of us who live in the United States of America are struggling with our own fight for equality on some levels, but nothing compared to those who live in countries with horrifying laws against “gays”. We care deeply for each and everyone of you, and we love you as true brothers and sisters!!! Don’t be afraid, be strong and we will win this “war”. We will be victorious in our quest for equality, dignity and happiness!!!

    Love from your gay brother in America,
    Max

    I hope people realize when the UN votes it doesn’t actually become law. For instance, a lot of the countries that voted yes do not even have capital punishment.

    Take Lebanon for instance, capital punishment is only permissible for those doing high treason… not being gay.

    It is clear to see that people voted in blocks (ie. all arabic speaking countries voted unanimously, former soviet countries voted unanimously etc)

    Its stupid yes, but it won’t change anything in Lebanon

    i cannot take this anymore.. i think i need a hug 😦

    This piece IMPLIES that the US, Israel, France, Armenia, UK & Venezuela voted against this resolution, but they did NOT vote against it. They sat back and allowed the passage. The vote was UNANIMOUS, and I’m surprised that this wasn’t mentioned. To me, allowing this to happen is just as bad as voting for it!

    • Scott November 28, 2010 / 9:33 pm

      Okay, disregard my comment above… When the initial vote was held, there were no opposing votes. But, my sentiment remains, that the abstaining countries allowed this to happen by with-holding their votes- including the US. The shame.
