The west isn't as free and open as you would like to think. Its full of bullying.

They aren't doing it for the benefits of testing for disease -- even then they should be testing ALL travelers and not just gay-specific, heterosexuals can get aids and other STD's just as easily. I support the protest against FIFA going there . . . It would be better off not risking innocent lives due to the sheer ignorance of one country.
it is a good way to prevent the spread of AIDS and HIV and the dozens of other STD's that gay men spread more often.
An HIV test would be the way to stop the spread of HIV ... not a 'gay test'. And the country is going to test every single traveler?? That's insanely expensive and impractical.
The reason they think they are going to be doing 'gay testing' isn't because of disease.
It's because of religion. They think homosexuals are hell bound and evil.
Like I said, they can run their country any way they want.
But we also have the right to say ... how insane!
