    Gay rights groups condemn Blatter comment - World Soccer - Yahoo! Sports
    By STEVE DOUGLAS, AP Sports Writer

    The president of the world soccer governing body said Monday that gay fans “should refrain from any sexual activities” during the World Cup in Qatar, where homosexual behavior is illegal.

    Juris Lavrikovs, communications director for the European branch of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association, said the comments were “very unfortunate and have left people deeply offended.”


    You have got to be kidding me!

    Blatter is trying to save lives and the queers are offended? Get over yourselves already, not everything is to be taken as on offence.

    fyi; The penalty is long term prison or death. Next time you see Blatter, tell him thank you for thinking of your safety.

    Yea. I'm a Service Manager.

    But on topic, for a sec:
    If it's illegal there, there is nothing wrong with asking them to refrain.

    :cool:

    People are actually condemning that?

    I guess they would prefer prison or death.

    Seems to me that it would be wise to observe cultural and legal differences and be very much aware of them before you do something that endangers yourself or others.

    Which begs the question: Why on earth would you hold the tourney in Qatar to begin with? But I digress, their country their rules, stupid game.
