First, they aren't doing that because they love Muslims, they are doing that just to look good and make people like you think that they are good people.
Second, they are no gays in the Middle East because people there are trying to control themselves because if you are gay you aren't a Muslim, and even if they were some gay people there, they don't go to people and say "I am gay you should respect me because I am a human and I want marry people from my sex." In the Middle East They just shut up, and they keep that a secret
If you are gay just don't go there and stay with your "rights", people in the Middle East don't like you so don't go there because nobody is pointing a gun towards your head to make you live in there, so those gay freaks should stop complaining and shut up. - Votebotingsucks
