670 People Executed for Homosexuality and Other “Crimes”


The death penalty is often criticized in America, where it exists only as a punishment for the most perverse and morbid offenses.  Heck, even Jeffrey Dahmer, who was convicted for the rape and murder of 14 men and boys, was not eligible for the death penalty.

It is a culture shock to realize that Iran executed 670 people in 2011 for homosexuality, drugs, and speaking ill of Islam. For more on the information on these executions visit: http://news.yahoo.com/iran-executed-670-2011-says-u-n-investigator-192026640.html

    It’s easy to forget about the horrors visited on people that live in the backwaters of this world when we live in the relatively safe cocoon of America. Thanks for the reminder.
