Iran into the Death Chamber

      Did you know that in 2008 there were 346 people executed under Iranian law for being homosexual?  

     Below, the embedded video tells of two teenage boys, Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni who were brutally tortured until they confessed and were then hanged, for the crime of being homosexual in Iran.

     Note that U.S. ally Saudi Arabia still puts gays to death.  Why is it that our government is being so outspoken about Uganda's pending gay death penalty law, while ignoring our oil-soaked friend Saudi Arabia's law?  Is there no available oil in Uganda?  Apparently, there's more oil in Uganda than Saudi Arabia.  That's horrible news for gay Ugandans.

     Go to 346 No Execution for more information on how to take action to fight the homosexual death penalty in Iran.
