  1. Excuse me? The Christian Old Testament and I guess the Torah say it is an abomination to God for a man to lay with and man. And they should be taken outside the city and stoned to death to cleanse Israel of etc, etc,

    Soooo, WHY is this news item condemning the Muslim men for doing what we believe also? Well, The Catholic Church does teach the Death Penalty is wrong. I won’t be the first to cast a stone for obvious reasons, As long as the Muslim men didn’t hurt anybody I’d let them go with a warning that they are not GOD who ONLY has the right to judge someone to death. When I see them standing on water in their bare feet, I’ll hand them a bolder.
