    SODOMY ARABIA
    Yes it is Friday and so those long lines of young men robes up around their waists, on their knees, pants down around their ankles, mouths open and wearing the Kings bejeweled knee pads spill out of the narrow streets and alleys of old Riyadh, blocking traffic... .


    The Kingdom in the Closet
    Sodomy is punishable by death in Saudi Arabia, but gay life flourishes there. Why it is “easier to be gay than straight” in a society where everyone, homosexual and otherwise, lives in the closet

    المملكة العربيةالسعودية (Saudi Arabia):

    Appreciation needs to be shown to CNBC International TV.

    This news channel has covered the King and his son, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.

    Both of them are leaders and people who should be looked up to.

    All of the leaders of the MENA region are true leaders. These leaders have protected the Middle East and North African region since post September 11th, 2001.

    These leaders have been successful because they have not allowed an outside ideology such as communism, LGBT, etc. to spread in these regions. These leaders have been successful in regards to this and no one can deny this fact.

    This comment also acknowledges the many innocent lives that have been lost due to conflict and warfare in the MENA region since post September 11th, 2001. However, these innocent souls have given their lives to protect the truthfulness of the MENA region: British colonialism, the former Soviet Union, the United States of America, none of these powers have gained victory in this region and history testifies to this.

    1 year later, Saudi Arabia's "power hold" isnt here? Qatar's Emir and Gaddafi said Saudi Arabia would die out after 12 years.

    Saudi Arabia is still here, Qatar is losing, and Gaddafi is gone.

    And yet Alabama made abortion illegal. They (republicans) want to protect children lives, but lock up children who are looking for better lives in this country. Not to mention ..cutting funds for all programs that help children. But if you want change ladies... maybe vote for someone who really cares. Now bring on the replies..I'll never read.
