  1. Never, ever, ever visit these backward Islamic countries. Don’t give money to the fascists.

  2. Islam ruins nations. Not homosexuality.

    Religion ruins individuals and nations. The judge actually proves that with his comments. No liberty, no free thought, and no oppression of every member of the population in the name of some made up deity.

    There is no Allah.

    FVCK RELIGION!! It cannot be said loudly enough! RELIGIONS POISON THE MIND! Oppression of Women, oppression of free thought, oppression of anyone “Not Like Us” is what Religion exists to reinforce! I long for the day when these fvckwads and cockwombles are locked up in soft rooms so they can’t spout their bollocks Dogma at people, can’t exploit the poor, the mentally ill, the STUPID!!
    Sorry about that. I think I need a lie down…..

      There’s no law in Bahrain, there is only occupation and oppression. When the rulers and authorities regularly tear-gas groups of unarmed women and the streets are patrolled by foreign tanks it’s a clear sign that the supposed nation has already failed.

  6. the bad thing is that they always seem to find a scapegoat for homosexuality with foreigners. If this story is proven to be true I’m sure there were many Bahraini clients who were wiling paying for sex, but yet it’s only the Chinese men who are going to jail. As if homosexality didn’t exist before foreign people moved there! Racist, hypocritical and extremely homophobic, what could be worse?

    1. Yes, it is always depressing when the least powerful people are scapegoated.

  7. It is RELIGION and those who use it for their own ends which ruins nations. Ideology, religious or political, oppresses people and creates wars. Hasn’t anyone noticed how much happier nations seem to be without state-sponsored / sanctioned religion?
