Today, I intended to celebrate Nowruz and my homeland’s glorious Zoroastrian past. Instead, I have been struck with profound agony after watching a horrendous video of an angry mob of Muslim men beating and burning to death a mentally ill Afghan woman in the name of Islam. Her alleged crime: burning the Quran. A book authored by a polygomous pedophile who has mentally enslaved an estimated 1.8 billion Muslims into a doctrine that justifies the persecution of heathens and homosexuals, Jews & Gentiles and girls & women.

If you identify yourself as a Muslim, ex-Muslim or non-Muslim and you live in the West and blame US imperialism but ignore the 1400 years of the greatest killing machine and retrograde our humanity has ever known and cannot muster the courage to defend the rights of atheists, gays, females, Israel and the secular world to exist, then what decency and dignity do you have left as a person? And if you cannot or do not acknowledge and speak the truth about Islam’s extremism or tacitly support the violence against a defenseless, disabled woman while obstructing the voices of conscientious humanists who do then you are, in my humble opinion, an apathetic apologist, a fearful coward and a worthless cretin who is totally in denial about the vile nature of Islam and the way it incubates and nurtures a barbaric society and spreads terrorism around the world. Ask yourself this: What makes the horrific atrocity committed by Afghan civil society in Kabul today any different than Boko Haram or ISIS fanatics?

If you cannot be part of the solution, then stop being part of the problem. If the truth is bitter, inconvenient or insulting to you, then I take immense pride in offending you because the killing of one innocent person and 270 million plus, in the name of Allah, will always be more egregious than your pathetic delusion.
A mob in the Afghan capital, Kabul, has killed a woman and set her body alight for allegedly burning a copy of the Koran.

Earlier today, the US Institute of Peace launched a panel discussion on expanding ‪#‎LGBTDiplomacy‬ globally. Please watch what the US State Department and activists are doing to campaign for constitutional rights for LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersexual) persons across the world and what you can do to be part of this fascinating time in history. (Please fast forward the video to 13 minutes to the start of the talk).

Love is a human right. Hate is a bigoted choice. Thank you to the leader of the free world for standing up for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) rights on this International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia. In a statement released yesterday, President Barack said he and Michelle Obama believe we must "celebrate the dignity of every person" and "all people deserve to live free from fear, violence, and discrimination, regardless of who they are or whom they love."

Soon the LGBTIQA of Afghanistan, entire Muslim World and beyond will have a legal status, be free and equal, and marry their heart's desire.

I’m delighted to announce that two Iranian men have made history by tying the knot in the first publicly recorded gay wedding. Every Iranian should be proud that their rich Persian culture is evolving to honor the heritage of the most persecuted and repressed minority in the history of man-made religion. I anticipate the glorious day when Shirazi wine is served in legal same-sex marriages in Isfahan, Kerman, Qazvin and throughout Gay-Ran-Ia.

Mazel tov to the pioneering groom & groom. May your love last forever.

I’m happy to declare myself Irish! Last weekend, Ireland made history by becoming the first to pass gay marriage by popular vote (at the grassroots level). All 20 other countries where same-sex marriage is legal came about via constitutional reform or a judge spelling out the letter of the law. In other words, Ireland paved the way for a global social revolution.

Here’s what you need to know about Ireland. 
-A traditionally Catholic country steeped in patriarchy.
-Only in 1993, Ireland decriminalized homosexuality
-Eight years ago, there was no active lobbying for LGBT marriage equality. 
-Gay marriage passed by 2 to 1 margin. That’s 62.1% yes to 37.9% no.
-60.5% of the citizens turned out to vote, making it the largest nationwide referendum in Ireland's history.
-Oscar Wilde, an Irish native, was the first LGBT Rights Activist in the West.

A month ago, I took a ‘What is your soul nationality’ quiz and it said: “You’re Irish. You’re the perfect example of kindness and human courtesy. Empathy flows deep in your bones. It is really who you are. You have cared for many and healed them with your touch, even at the cost of trusting others when they didn’t deserve your trust. To be honest, your love and trust should be cherished and treasured. By being yourself and spreading your healing, your are creating a legacy of kindness and selflessness that will never be forgotten.”

Israel is the land of (pro-‪#‎LGBT‬) family values. A new study shows ‪#‎Israel‬ tops a global index for the happiest gay people in the world while Muslim-majority countries, plagued by a culture of homophobia, fare worst. ‪#‎Equality‬ ‪#‎Freedom‬ ‪#‎Liberty‬ ‪#‎Humanism‬
Iceland places first in ​gay ​well-being survey of over 100,000 men across 127 ​states; Africa and Middle East account for most of ​bottom 30 countries.​

Mind-boggling things I’ve heard about my educational pursuits since completing high school in two and a half years and graduating at age 16. 
1. All the people who kept studying like you blew a fuse and went cuckoo.
2. You have more degrees than a freaking thermometer.
3. You’re shrinking your pool of men/destroying chances to find a husband.
4. Three bachelors. Three masters. You better not get three PhD’s. 
5. You’re no public intellectual. Only a professional student & provocateur.
Famous quotes about education from inspirational thought leaders: 
1. Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. -Nelson Mandela
2. Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today. -Malcolm X
3. One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first. -Malala Yousafzai
4. Learning gives creativity. Creativity leads to thinking. Thinking provides knowledge. Knowledge makes you great. -A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
5. Renaissance minds draw knowledge from the entire canon of literature. -Nemat Sadat
