JTheM saidSome bigots would have you believe this kind of thing only happens in the Muslim world, although they (rightly) would never use this horrific incident against Blacks.
Funnily enough South Africa has a massive Muslim population and they really aren't that homophobic as a whole. I mean it still is somewhat scandalous and unacceptable in their Muslim communities, particularly th older generation but they would go so far as to keep it a secret if their kids are gay but there's no violence against LGBT people from Muslims here. In fact there are some expressly LGBT friendly Mosques in the country.
It's not really Islam, it's more of a cultural thing. They oppress women in the middle east because they want to, then use teacheings from the Qor'an as an excuse for their behaviour
