i completely agree with you, also i feel that interfering is exactly what we are doing when the media props up these stories about their decisions with such negative tones and turns it into a witch hunt against them.

A sovereign nation choosing to do something that goes against something in western culture.
As much as I disagree with it, it would be imperialism if we were to interfere with what they want to do.
And imperialism is far worse than freedoms denied.
