CBS news gave a brief tutorial on Islam & homosexuality as an adjunct to the report on Omar Mateen. The relevance was not explained. While it focused on repression in countries like Iran, it did point out that it was legalized in some predominantly Muslims countries in the 19th century but only recently here–where civil rights are still not complete.

Let me give a tutorial on the Catholic Church & homosexuality which my homosexual relatives have suffered unbearably from, including depression, alcoholism, shame, & suicide.

This is not to excuse intolerance in any religion but to object that Islam & ISIS have no more relevance to the Orlando investigation & reporting than the Vatican & the Spanish Inquisition.
