ISIS murders another man for being gay

Members of so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have executed another man accused of being gay, throwing him off a roof in Mosul, Iraq. 

An ISIS commander preached before a crowd gathered at the base of a tall building, included many children, informed bystanders that the victim had been found guilty of "corruption of thought" and "homosexual acts". 

The punishment for such crimes is death by stoning or by being thrown from the tallest building in the city. In some instances, if victims survive the fall, they are subsequently stoned to death. 

The public executions in ISIS territories started at early 2014. United Nations reported that at least 30 people have been killed after being accused of being gay. 

Stop this barbarity!

    Sickening! It is amazing to me that people profess to be doing God's work. If God were a drug dealing gangster or something of the sort, then yes, but a loving and benevolent one?

    If we (queers included) are creations of God, then isn't God, busy as he is, allowed the odd typo? If God is omnipotent and infallible, then surely gay people are just as much part of that great work as anyone else? Anyone or any group of people that sets themselves up as better than any other is gravely in error, and it is they that should re-examine their place in the scheme of things.

    The only thing that would make me murder someone else would be rage. Yet I find rage to be a passing thing. When I get in a rage, I am especially restrained because I know that this is the wrong frame if mind from which to act. So far, I have made it to 53 years of age without taking someone's life. I would take my own life with impunity, compared to taking someone else's in a fit of rage.
