I was forwarded an article about Saudia Arabia and its treatment of homosexuals being some of the worst in the world. I was going to do a post about this article to follow up my UN Community Call to Action when I found this post on Be One City, "We Are Being Beheaded and Beaten." It sums up the article and its context very well.
It's a long read, but I feel necessary to fully understand how horrible homosexuals are being treated far from our borders. This distance doesn't excuse our government from turning a blind eye, however. If we're suppose to be leaders in human rights, how can we not easily add our signature to the UN's resolution to put an end to this?
It boggles my mind.
