Within the last 10 days, six gay men in Iraq have been shot dead for the crime of homosexuality. On March 26, four men in Sadr City were disowned by their families, then executed by their tribes. On April 2, six additional gay men were shot.

The killings evidently come in response to tribal meetings in which Iraqi tribal members have decided to crack down on queerness. A cafe in Sadr City - said to be a popular meeting spot for gays - was also burned.

There seems to be some debate over whether these men were actually gay or whether being gay was an excuse to kill them, because they disagreed with the ruling part of the tribe.

Either way, it shows how fucked up people can be.

Dear Lord, I pray for:
Wisdom  to  understand  my  man,
Love  to  forgive  him,  and
Patience  for  his  moods.

Because,  Lord,  if  I  pray  for  Strength,  I'll beat  him to  death !
