FIFA President Tells Gays “No Sex” During ’22 World Cup
Sepp Blatter, president of FIFA, soccer’s worldwide governing body, said that homosexuals attending the 2022 World Cup in Qatar “should refrain from any sexual activities” during the tournament.
Gay sex, even in the privacy of one’s home or hotel room, is illegal in Qatar and punishments, based on Islamic law, are severe. An American citizen was sentenced to six months imprisonment and 90 whip lashes for homosexual activity. These and other penalties, including deportation, are common.
Gay groups throughout the Western world have expressed shock and indignation that a country such as Qatar that violates the basic human rights of an entire population would even be awarded the World Cup.
It’s not just the gays that are bewildered by Qatar’s selection. Public drinking, a prominent feature of other World Cups, is illegal in the country. And summer temperatures that easily soar to over 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) won’t win many fans either.
“It’s another culture and another religion,” Blatter said, “but in football we have no boundaries. We open everything to everybody and I think there shall not be any discrimination against any human beings.”
Unless they’re gay, that is.
