Andrew Sullivan has mentioned in his blog that these men were hung for being gay. The picture is from an Iranian News Website. I, of course can’t read the website’s arabic, but if it’s true, May God bring their souls to peace…. Them and every other person murdered in the name of religion. God knows who you are and loves you and I know he has carried you in his arms to a place of rest and peace.

I grieve for you and the lives you might have led. I grieve your creative voice, the books you could have written, and the loves you could have shared.
