Our minister of interior Marwan Charbel, also known as the gift that keeps on giving, issued a statement on the matter:
The above statement hasn’t been altered. It’s what the minister said verbatim (link). “Lebanon is against gays,” he said. “The Lebanese law considers them a felony and I wonder if after France allowed same-sex marriages, we allow them to enter Lebanon?”
Beware gay people, Lebanon will enforce some new airport regulations to ban homosexuals entry to its land. Lebanon is a no-gay zone, according to Marwan Charbel that is.
The statement will resonate with all the people who approve of what the mayor of Dekwane did (link), the people who will applaud Marwan Charbel for “protecting their families,” the people who are busy putting up posters such as this around their towns:
Lebanon, the country with entrenched homophobia, isn’t changing anytime soon.
PS: Mr. Charbel, your radar may have missed several hundred thousand individuals of the Lebanese population.
