  1. May just be me, but I can’t see the video at all.

      No I can’t see it here in the North of Ireland either. Typical of Pink News with it’s cheapo blogging software, word press which act like it was written by ten year olds…..

  2. I wonder what the religion of the majority of the 76 countries is?

    1. Probably a mix between Islam and Christianity.

    2. One thing is sure in the Americas the religion is christianity.

    I wonder how many are in the Commonwealth? Perhaps there will be protests at the Commonwealth Games next year in Glasgow…

    Why are Africans so homophobic? I think one answer might be is the growing presence of Islamic fundamentalism in Africa, plus the legacy of the Christianuttys.

    1. It’s more to do with colonialism then religion. British colonialists installed their anti gay Laws when they colonised parts of Africa and Asia. Look at countries colonised by the Spanish and Portuguese: Dominican Republic, Mexico, Brazil, Cuba etc All Christian countries, but more tollerant then lets say christian Ghana, Jamaica:)

  6. Title could be : UN highlights Islamic World and parts of subsaharan Africa.

  7. If the UN acknowledges these places are homophobic and, presuming they are members, why haven’t they been expelled? The ONLY way to force these places to re-think their disgusting discriminatory policies is through shame, isolation … and the pocket. It’s amazing how quickly someone is able to re-examine their morality when their income is threatened.

  8. 77 countries*
    Because India. >:C
