    So some that are more tolerant. Would you say those that are Muslim there are not so tied to Some Sunni Cleric? Influenced beyond the Norm. Would you say that they are more educated? Reading and writing wise. Not having someone tell them what they have to believe in?

    Aren't mixing a legal issue with an emotional one?

    I met few Muslims. Where I was researching is almost entirely Christian. Muslims are only found in quantity on the coast and northeastern arid lands (to my basic knowledge), I was at Mt. Kenya with Kiembu (specifically, descendants of the Mau Mau).

    Tolerance varied from person to person, like in the States but heavily slanted towards social conservative.

    Why doesn't Obama go say that in Saudi Arabia, the mega-rich Arab Emirates, Brunei, Qatar, and to the wonderful Libyan government he put into power via the US military?

    I guess he figures he can tell poor African nations what they should do, while Arabic Muslim countries get to tell him what to do.

    You're taking my statement out of context. I was replying to someone who thought throwing gays in jail or killing them wasn't done out of hate. Yeah, sure.

    Especially the Saudi who like to trick Foreigners then lock them up for the crimes. Again those Sunni Clerics and Shia Clerics hold more influence than their Political leaders. Which IMO lead us to a Solution to a major problem for all and every Muslim.
