LOL there's a strong positive correlation between support of homosexuality and support of honor killings in the Arab world.

. report increasing number of people in Middle East & North Africa describe themselves as non-religious. I wonder if that might in time improve the terrifying % of people who think honour killing is acceptable & homosexuality unacceptable?
