Ok first off I am more than aware that Iraq follows Sharia Law and therefore if you have same sex sexual activity and you are a man you will be kissed and if you are a woman you will be lashed. I do think this is wrong in many way but this rant isn’t about Sharia Law.
What is happening in Iraq just now is a group of people are going out of their way to kill or hurt young gay men ( even if they haven’t had same sex sexual activity) and anyone who is considered “emo”. This group has killed several young people by beating them to death with blunt objects.
Why are they doing this? Well they are doing it because their religious views say it’s wrong. Now I don’t care what your religion is. I don’t care if your homophobic or judge people on how they dress. I do care if you don’t keep your views to yourself and decided it is your job to hurt people who you think don’t live the right life style. Thing is though in Islamic culture Allah is often known as Allah the merciful. This doesn’t seem very merciful this seems just sick. They are attacking gay men as it is said to be wrong in the Qur’an and they are attacking ”emos” as by taking on a more western look they are seen to be shaming their culture.
The Iraq government also seems to be doing very little about this. Many gays and emos have had to go into hiding. Many people are cutting their hair to look more stylish and less emo.Many people are living in fear.
Murder is murder no matter who they are it is murder. These people have done nothing wrong no one has the right to kill another human being just because they don’t live the way they think they should.
Rant 2:LGBT:Married Equality in Scotland

The fact that the Parliamentary officers of the Catholic Church in Scotland and of the Christian Public Affairs Charity are so wrong that the Policy Coordinator for the Equality Network just seems baffled by the reasons why they are agent same sex married in Scotland and the Spokes Person for the Humanist Society in Scotland basically just laughs at them. If I was having this argument with them here is what I would have said:
