i appreciate your rational view of things, i really do. You understand that these laws are based on religious views. people may like it or not, but some things can not be accepted because they are not accepted by religion. People should just acknowledge that, like you said, it’s their country.No I don't expect an entire country to change their beliefs, especially when a lot of those beliefs come from religious indoctrination. I did however expect Qatar to be more welcoming to other cultures seeing as they're putting their country on the world stage. Their attitude seems to be "our way or the highway" which is fine, it's their country and they can do what they want.
I'm not sure what you're trying to say regarding LGBT folks getting upset. Should they accept being being told that their sexuality is wrong?
As others have pointed out, there are pro-palestine marches and protests all over the western world. This is a thread about Qatar though.
I'm not sure how human rights could be subjective?? If you accept the fact that people of all race, gender, and sexuality are equal then surely human rights are universal and completely objective.
Personally, I think human rights are more important than any sport or game. I think a lot of people feel the same which is why there's so much discussion around things not football related.
also, look, i mentioned palestine as an example. I was accused by some to be “weaponising compassion” whatever that means! You are right, the thread is about the world cup. It was just an example.
