... so they can refuse entry to gays.

I can't even begin to imagine how that would work.

I understand the test involves playing a Broadway show tune in the background and observing if the person wanting to gain entry hums along.

They are also turning away any guy dressed like a cop, a construction worker, a soldier, a biker, or an Indian wearing a feather war bonnet.

I clicked on the link and saw nothing about a test. Did I miss something?

I'd spend a year or two working in some of those countries if it gave me the salary to pay for my kids' college. And just think of the side trips you could take living in that part of the world!

Still if I was gay it'd be one country I'd want to stay away from. Along with Saudi Arabia and Iran. In Saudi Arabia they execute men for homosexuality by publicly chopping their head off with a sword!

^ It's still a big part of the culture though

"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"

You can earn big bucks there as a contractor! The standard of living is very high (it's the wealthiest country in the world per capital), crime is almost non-existant. Lot's of people try to go there.
