Ages ago I found a leaflet from Amnesty International which detailed the seven countries in the world which still prescribed the death penalty for homosexuality. I'm writing a project about it, and I cannot, however hard I've looked, find these seven countries. I just know that Yemen is one of them. Can anyone help me out..? And more to the point does anyone have a particular opinion about this? (Other than that is very, very bad)

The ones I could find are : Saudi Arabia, Iran, Mauritania, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen. I know it's only six but I hope it's a help :)

According to the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission, the death penalty can also be imposed in Nigeria.

I myself believe that countries perscribing the death penalty for homosexuality is just wrong. Theres are really messed up website Godhatesfags.com . It is the home page for the First Baptist Church of Westboro. You wouldnt even believe some of the things that talk about on that site.You should check it out for yourself

You can add Iraq to the list of countries that sanction death to gays. It may not be in the Iraqi constitution but the mullas have written several fatwas on the subject. It is from these fatwas that several gay teenage Iraqis have been shot to death. We have a "minister" right here in America who advocates death to all gays. His name is Fred Phelps and is "pastor" of Hillsborough Baptist Church. He has a web site on the internet
where he spews his hateful messages. Hardan

The only time I believe the death penalty should be used is in the case of cold-blooded murder.
