Gay Western Democracy vs. Islam

While the UK government is wondering if too many of its citizens are engaging in too much anal sex, in France gay flight stewards are having issues about flying to Iran. But in America PayPal is moving business out of North Carolina in protest of that state's opposition to gender neutral bathrooms while still doing business in the Arab world where homosexuality is illegal.  For example, Saudi Arabia wants to add coming out on  line to the many crimes punishable by death. Incidentally, a man was just arrested there for accidentally waving a rainbow flag. And refugees who come out as queer here are being attacked by other refugees. 

As all of this goes on Mad Merkel mulls over whether to put the author of a poem in prison at Turkey's request, while a Muslim cleric suggests that all churches be burned down.
