2 Men Arrested For 'Immoral Activity' In Lebanon

LebanonLess than a month after 36 Lebanese men suspected of being gay were rounded up at a theater, two men in their twenties have been arrested after getting caught in the back of a car together:

From Haaretz:

Police in Beirut arrested two men on Friday morning on suspicion that they are gay, media reports claimed.

The two men, aged 22 and 24, were arrested in the Ashrafieh neighborhood after being caught while undertaking what was called in media reports 'immoral activity' in a car belonging to one of the suspects.

The men face up to a year in jail if convicted of "unnatural" intercourse.

  1. Just for perspective, you could get arrested for public sex in most states of the good ol' USA. And I am sure our Taliban-y Bible Belt has some archaic names for the activity as well.

  2. Public sex? No sh*t Sherlock. You want people 'doing it' on a sidewalk in the middle of town?

  3. Um, Tweety and RB, really? These guys did not have public sex. More likely, they were making out and doing some heavy petting in their car. Heterosexuals consider such activity their birthright. Why should it be different because there are two guys involved. Not cool.

    I'd like to see this sort of injustice show up on the U.S. Department of State's radar.

  4. Do you love life? Then do not squander time; for that's the stuff5 life is made of. Each moment in history is a fleeting time, precious and unique.

  5. The important thing in life is to have a great aim, and the determination to attain it. Genius only means hard-working all one's life.
