    Do the majority of Iranians support homosexual acts incurring the death penalty? Is there any support for the full decriminalization of homosexuality in Iran?

    Doubt it Lampeter. The World is going through a bit of right wing time. Uganda is getting all worked up over Homosexuality because they blame that for the spread of HIV (not the loads of unprotected heterosexual sex that goes on!), Saudi Arabia is still the mad, bigoted place it always was and the far right churches in the USA are rising up. Add to that the vocality of the BNP (although I've always suspected some of them to be shirt lifters) and what do you have? About 20 years of sudo-fascism - so guys - batten down the hatches and switch to assertive mode - and woe betide and bugger who tries to take you on.
