I don't understand your point. I think the main point people are making is that the country should have been chosen to host. Not that we can force them to change their laws.

Oh. Okay.

Wonder what the criteria is for being a host nation?

How big a bribe you can pay members of FIFA's Executive Committee.

Not to have laws that criminalize homosexuals. South Africa was boycotted for discrimination. There is a precedent.

I believe. My children are being brought up to know they can love whoever they like. Bigotry like this will be foreign to them.

No you will not tolerate a word against gays and dare not preach to anyone but the converted but since you asked then I will respect you and leave.

I didn't ask, I merely stated a preference. And don't speak for me, I am long winded enough without others putting words in my mouth, thank you.

Good for you. Hate is what keeps us all suffering.

I have a hard time believing that in a country that is dictated by peace and tolerance through their religion would not welcome gays.


You're kidding right?

Didn't FIFA already cancel the Qatar World Cup because they deemed it would be too hot?

It has not - at this point - been cancelled, the world cup wouldn't be. The move is to change the dates so that it occurs when the temperature would be more conducive for both those on the field and the spectators.

Good call. I didn't think it was canceled.

See, the problem is, it isn't your country. How you (or anyone else, including me) feels about their culture & beliefs is immaterial. It's their country. Respect their way of life. If you have a problem with that, I would be directing your disbelief towards the Olympic Committee & asking them why they would choose a host who embraces that kind of culture.

Agreed.

Again, I'm in total agreement.
Now if only 'they' could extend the same courtesy when moving to 'my' country we'd all get along just swell.....unfortunately that simply isn't the case for many.

And yet again, I'm in total agreement....and I'd refer you to my previous posts in this thread.

Again, no we don't have to respect discrimination just because it's in another country, that such a weird thing to suggest.
