Iraq - Hostage hid homosexuality

Now why do you suppose he did that? What did he have to fear from the tolerant religion of peace? Here's the story.

TORONTO - Fears that Iraqi captors might harm a Canadian hostage if they knew he was gay forced his partner to remain silent as loved ones called for an end to the ordeal, a director from the freed hostage’s aid group said Monday.

Make that Muslim captors.

I don't know if this is true around the world...

“It’s a sad fact that around the world gays and lesbians are more vulnerable to attack than straights,” Pritchard said.

but it's certainly true in the Muslim world. Being gay will get you killed almost as fast as converting to Christianity.
