    What a complete disgrace.

    Such a shame these countries always seem to want help fight the bad guys yet constantly treat their own so badly.

    Prehaps we should bargain in future that people deserve to be treated better before we protect their governments.

  2. Clearly an uncivilised, tin-pot country, It once again indicates what a primitive, evil religion Islam is.

    And yet countries like this want to hold world sports events lile the Footall World Cup. I think it is time we refused to allow this. we need to stand stong and say we will not alow LGBT people to be misused.

  4. Outrageous and inhumane.

    No worse than detaining someone because of their race, age or poltiics.

    Pleased to see in Gaza tomorrow there is the first ever Gazan Pride.

  5. I’ve been looking into the history of witchcraft persecution recently and the parrallels are shocking!

    But don’t worry! Homosexuals will all be born with penis shaped birth marks that don’t bleed when stabbed soon… so they’ll be easy identify to burn at the stake!

    Our crops will be safe!!!

  6. Our oil addiction is making us support states reminiscent of 16th and 17th century England. The trick is defining bigotry and irrationality as ‘morality’ and then enshrining them as ‘law’ because an invisible spirit who inspires infallible books tells you that you can. We need much more intolerant, fundamentalist Enlightenment Liberalism in the world, if that’s not too contradictory.

  7. ‘Incident acts’ ?

  8. We went to war for these people when they were invaded by Iraq. What a waste of resources.

    1. Should have let Iraq have them

  9. The repressive and fascist “religion of peace” strikes again. And some of our soldiers died helping these people!

    All this after what we did for them in 1991. The UK was just one of 28 countries that helped liberate Kuwait from Saddam Hussein. Even Argentina sent two ships there to help us. Don’t cry for me, Kuwait, I will be down the pub next time your neighbours come pouring across the desert.

  11. How sad. What have the gay folks done to be punished in such inhumane and violent manner? Sometimes it is depressing to read LGBT-related news when everything look so depressing. And while people are cheering for Euro 2012 football matches in Ukraine, the gay folks there are suffering as recent anti-gay laws were proposed. Not sure what people are celebrating these days.

    Thanks for your reporting on this.
    I posted it to my LGBT Group on LinkedIn and also made a comment there to spur members to read your article and to make comment. I also scooped it at Scoop.It on my LGBT Times news mashup.

    Link to group >> http://www.linkedin.com/groups/LGBT-Gay-GLBT-Professional-Network-63687/about

    All LGBT+ and community allies…. please come join me and 14,000 of your soon to be great friends on LinkedIn. The member base represents 80% of the world’s countries.

    It is strictly professional office friendly dialog, posting and profiles / profile images. I’ve been told by many that it may well be one of the best run / managed groups on LinkedIn. It even has several LinkedIn top executives as members.

    You can be as out or private as you like and I provide instructions on how to set those preferences (In the Manager’s Choice area).
    EVERY new member is placed automatically and systematically on a temporary 100% moderation.

  13. The anti-gay Christians and Muslims are the ones who are involved in this campaign to attack LGBT people in Kuwait the same as the anti-gay Christians and Muslims are involved with all campaigns to attack and harass all LGBT people around the world. They are the evil terrorist who make life a living hell, not only for gay people but the people who the gay people are connected to, good family and friends who support LGBT people.

  14. I guess it could only be a matter of time before the citizens of Kuwait begin to stand up for themselves like in so many other Arab countries.

  15. Ah yes, morals – the same morals that allow the state to brutalise and murder those who disagree with its policies, and to imprison people on trumped-up charges with impunity. Such morals are so admirable, aren’t they?
