Gay victims of Franco era to win compensation

There are 5 comments on the www.independent.co.uk story from Jul 15, 2008, titled Gay victims of Franco era to win compensation. In it, www.independent.co.uk reports that:

In the dying days of General Francisco Franco's dictatorship, Antoni Ruiz found out for himself what thousands of others had already suffered for being gay...

During Franco's homophobic dictatorship, gays were jailed or locked up in sinister mental institutions known as "correction camps". With echoes of the Nazi atrocities against gays, they were given electric shocks in the belief that this would rid them of their homosexual urges. Inmates were forced to watch pornographic films featuring women in an effort to show them a sex life that was deemed "natural" by the conservative authorities.

If he had made the choice to do what is right and normal, sexually, maybe he wouldn't have suffered "as much" under Franco.

Perhaps if those who CHOOSE to be Christian were tossed in prison or mental hospitals, subject to physical abuse and coercive and damaging "conversion" techniques, because they do not go along with what is "right" and "normal", the self-righteous would be singing a very different tune.

Maybe if the Christians would have kept their mouths shut during the time of Rome they wouldnt have been Lion Kibble.
