It never ceases to amaze me how we [ the west ] are so full of moral outrage at the Iranian position on homosexuality , and claim to be oh-so
civilized amd tolerant , when infact our position has only recently changed
in this country [ the UK ] despite his massive contributions to the war effort , and science , the mathemetician Alan Turing , just 60 years ago , was
driven to suicide by the intolerance of officialdom and the anti homosexual laws we had then .
i have had chance to meet and talk to people who worked with Turing , some of those people are alive today .
I dont claim to know what the timeline of the official position on homosexuality has been in the states , but i can and will point the finger at
America`s stance on racial discrimination and oppression
any one else feel that we are throwing stones from our glass houses ?
I certainly do .
