Must be a pretty exclusive saying. I've never heard it at least

67% of the world's population is in Asia, which includes much of the Middle East. I would think Africa would be more in-line with the rest of the world - the world of Asia.

Americas & Europe have been well-challenged on these debates, and have had to think about it way more than Asia/Africa/Middle East.
Good point. I didn't of that nor of Asia when I made this thread.

Even the non-religions, pagans are not in favor of homosexuality in their society, it's not religion matter only, the traditional African society reject such a concept.

Comparing the American age of consent to African politicians calling for the beheading of their citizens is just crazy!
.

You can also get a death penalty in the US for the same offense, there is no difference in terms of punishment between the US and third world countries.

So what's the difference between beheading and death penalty ? basically the same, there is no humane way of killing a person, they're all inhumane and uncivilized.

Even in Uganda, you can love whomever you want. You just can't have sex with certain people.
That's true !
